Here it comes

Hope everyone out there is safe and ready for the Blizzard. In Philly we're expecting 18" to 24" of wet and heavy white stuff over the next day or two. Hope the other parts of the northeast gets less and please if your out shovelling take it slow or better yet find someone younger to do it for you.

You be safe out there Ardie. My Anaheim Ducks were supposed to play Washington tonight and the game is postponed because of weather. You KNOW it's a bad storm when an ICE Hockey game...which they are playing indoors...get's canceled.

24-36" of heavy wet snow, along with 30-40mph winds here. A real honest-to-goodness blizzard!

Put the Sky under a cozy six-layer cover to let it slumber during the blizzard...it sits so much lower than the other cars, they tend to shield it.

Just checking in after the first blizzard of 2016. Ended up with 22 1/2 " and drifts of over 36". Two days of shovelling and snow blowing but we're out and mobile. My Sky's resting the the garage and waiting for spring. I really envy you guys in Florida and on the west coast. Peace.

Seems like a normal winter day here in Canada!

Just hope you guys stay safe. I know up in the Great White North of Canada (eh) that you guys are use to this stuff but that makes it a bit easier. You expect it, you accustomed to it, you're prepared for it. It's like when I tell people here we had a nice warm days with temps in the 110s that they think I'm crazy to even think about going outside but for us it's normal. We're use to it. Prepared for it.

I don't know how I'd fair in weather like that honestly. I'm sure I'd adapt eventually but the first few years I'd be the biggest wuss probably. LOL

At my house we ended up with 28". Just finished digging out enough to get to the main road this afternoon, but many sidestreets are not plowed yet.

This was our patio table on the deck from Saturday night (don't groan Elff ) The deck's still standing, so far. But I don't want to step out on it to dig

I've lived in climates where it's usually cold (WI), and in climates where it's usually hot (TX). You do adapt. Personally, I prefer hot. You don't have to shovel heat.

As I get older I like the warmth more. Also, driving in the snow is awful for a guy who grew up in the south. LOL
