We’re in Connecticut. We got 3-4 feet of snow. We started clearing it around 6:00 AM. We burned up the auger clutch on the snowblower about 11:00. And I buried the ATV snowplow twice and had to dig it out each time. We finally quit doing it by hand about 4:15 with fifty feet still to go to reach the road. It looks like tomorrow we’ll be done, not that anything is open or we have any place to go. 

It’s the storm of the century, I’m told, at least I’ve never seen a bigger snowfall. BTW, 3-4 more years we’re moving to Texas.

31 inches here in northern New London county (Conn), drifts up to 4 ft on the driveway. My snowblower performed like a champ. 300 feet of driveway mostly clear.

Still have to dig my car out and do some more snowblowing, but that and shoveling the front stoop was enough for me.

I’m sympathetic. Three years ago we got hit with nor’easter that dumped a quick 39”. I have a very large (10,000sq.ft.+) steep sloped driveway. Took me two days, 6 sheer bolts and 4 gallons of gasoline to clear. On top of that I chewed up the honda impellers.

“BTW, 3-4 more years we’re moving to Texas.”

If you do, don’t drive in the right lane on the freeway if
you are too scared to drive 5 or 10 mph. over the speed
limit and if you see someone on your back bumper and no one
in front of you, you are in the wrong lane. Never vote for
anyone who offers you free A/C. Leave that Connecticut
snobbery behind if you are infected with it. And never say
“that’s not the way we did it up north”. Of course in 3 to
4 years were going to have half the northeastern population
down here screwing everything up anyway.

How many storms of the century have we had so far in this century?
