ABC Evening News had a segment tonight on shoveling snow
Thanks for the tip. My question is;
Aren't seniors supposed to be watching CBS news?
I thought ABC was targeting the younger generation.
Speaking of which, I was watching CNN and a bit of Fox about the storm and that was major. Hope everybody affected can dig out and get on with your lives. I have been there and done that and don't want to do it any more.
Oh yeh, I watch NBC News...it's for in betweeners.

I still regret that we were not able to make a connection on your trip through here. Hopefully we can make it work next time. Mrs. houdini still asks about you now and then, so I don't think she has given up on meeting that guy with the great southern accent. I will have to keep an eye on her.
I will forgive your debt this time and just write it off.
I hope everyone who has been affected by the "blizzard of 2013" is safe and snug somewhere where it is warm and dry this morning. Have fun in the snow but don't over do it.

We have power and we have snow.
The wind has died down and it's tough to get a real solid snowfall total. I'm guessing about 24". My back deck has about 3" on it and the drifts up next to the cars in the driveway are about 36". The plow poop is 4' tall and about 2' thick.
The snow is expected to stop in a few hours and what's coming down now is fluffy so it'll build up quickly. The snow blower is ready to go....and hopefully the 16 YO man-boy will be awake by noon to help out.
Edit - news just interviewed an intrepid clammer who went out on a beach at low tide and collected quahaugs off the sand. "They're gonna die anyway so why not eat them?" He's hoping the waves pick up and toss some lobsters over the seawall.

Report in to us when you can.
Thank God the power is still on. So far, we have 23 inches of snow on the ground and snow banks as high as 6 feet.
Last night was really scary with howling winds and blinding snow. You could actually hear the wind enter through the eaves and rattle the air conditioning return in the attic. At the moment I have one major concern my deck is so loaded with snow that I'm afraid it may collapse.
Latest forecast is two to four more inches of snow before the storm ends by noon or so. As to the roads, there is a driving ban for all but emergency vehicles.
Stay safe and warm.

I'm in Burlington about 20 miles north on 128. Both of us are on the magical 128 line where weather can change depending on what side of the highway you're on.

Richard would be proud of me. I had the 11 year olds shoveling the 3 or 4" of snow we got and clearing the cars. Didn't worry about the deck other than a path to put the dog out. Not using the deck until things melt.
