Nor'Easter In Full Force On Valentines Day
"This is a photo of a path from the porch to a neighbor's driveway, for the mailman. They won't delivery mail if they can't get to the box. The snow line on the cutout was almost chest high on him he came by about 9:30 this morning. This picture was taken from inside out the window, so it looks a bit lower than it really is.
Some other pictures of a lousy day in Woodchuck Falls, err Glens Falls, NY. All I can say is even though we have received over 28 inches so far since midnight, it's still not as bad as the 112 inches they got this past week out in the western part of NY, and they were expecting another 20-36 from this storm too. Look up Parrish, NY on the weatherground.com site. They have nowhere left to pile snow, and in most places it's up to the 2nd story windows of the houses there.What about the folks who only have one story houses, have they found them all yet? Anyhoot, here are some pictures I took this afternoon.
I have dropped into your site a few times lately and enjoyed your SW Colorado Weather Cam. I've been meaning to write and tell you that and ask if you've permanently moved to Colorado but I keep forgetting to do it. By the time I finish poking about your site and get done browsing all the interesting things I am usually tired and ready to head off to bed so I say to myself, "I'll do it when I login tomorrow." Right! Tomorrow comes and I check one mailbox and then get lost tending to stuff around the house, and I space it out till I am too tired to write anything coherent. *grin* Aging is so much fun, NOT!
Use whatever you like, I even have some new ones I took a little while ago to show just how deep the danged stuff is out there. I keep telling Tom to be grateful we don't live in Parish, they've had over 10 feet of snow in just over a week's time. Anyone who lives on the north or east side of any great lake should have their head examined for staying more than one winter. *guffaw* They can't even find some vehicles out there, still buried someplace under mountains of snow that keep blowing and drifting. It's bad enough here.
I will enclose a few more pix for you to choose from from that were taken today. Tom has been shoveling since 8 am for about an hour at a time, comes in for 15-20 minutes to warm up and rest and goes back out to face it again. Our driveway is about 65 feet long and the snow was over 24 inches out there this morning. He quit shoveling about 11:00 last night with just over half of it done for the third time yesterday. I practically had to tie him down to keep him from going back out again. I told him it would be easier in daylight with no more coming down on him, getting him wet and cold, so he finally gave up and went and took a shower. He'd been at it since about 8:30 in the morning. We could have had a nice big snowblower really cheap when our neighbor JoAnn sold her house in June but we figured we be in Wa. by Thanksgiving so turned it down. Told him then he should buy it, even if we weren't going to be here, give it to one of the kids when we leave for the left coast but... Hindsight is wonderful, isn't it? Anyhoot, here are a few pix of today's adventures in the snow." -- Betty Lee

Comments: Cleveland and it's suburbs got blanketed with 24" up to 36+". What a winter wonderland. Removal was a different thing. It was cold (3 and below and windy), guaranteed to go right through whatever you were wearing. Neighbor helped neighbor with shovels and snow blowers if you had the wide mouth type. Walking was fun if your were under 6' tall. I'm 5' 10" and it was passed my knees. You sort of walked like a "cat trying to get through a wet area". Sort of side stepping your tracks. It took about 3 days to finally get most of the metropolitan area moving on the side steets. The snow plow crews kept working around the clock plowing the main streets and interstates to keep as much of the traffic going as possible. Some cars still are not plowed out as they were parked on the street at the time the snow was coming down at 1-2" an hour and the snow plows covered the cars up that weren't moved off the street in time. I've seen enough of that kind of snow for the winter for a while. Love the country and city up here. Wouldn't move if at all possible. ~Jenni Latza 2007-02-21 20:55:25
