The snow is really coming down now. My Neopolitan Mastiff had trouble walking through it.

Two 20 second power interruptions today already.

Unfortunately we can easily WFH so we are expected to WFH during snow storms or being sick.

I am taking older kids downhill skiing 1/2 day if school is cancelled. My wife is hoping school is on to do some cross country skiing by herself in fresh snow.

All gone here. Started in the morning, schools let out at noon. We have 6-8 inches of heavy, wet slushy snow. Power lines and weak tree limbs down. A few came off our full-size (30+ feet) holly trees.

Good for sledding and whatnot. It's a pretty warm storm, at least around here, so if it gets cold, it will be a real icy mess.

We got 18" of wet, heavy nasty stuff March 1st in the Buffalo area. It took me 1.5hrs to snowblow when it normally takes 20min. It was really tough on the equipment.

My snow blower definitely got a workout last night. We got about a foot of heavy wet stuff. I was outside from 8:00 till 10:30 clearing my driveway, and we lost power just as I was finishing up. Still didn't have power when I left for work this morning, but we may or may not have power now. Wife left the house at 9:20 and we still didn't have power, but my mom, who lives about a half mile away, said she got power back at 9:40.
