Next Nor'easter developing

Well...we might just get pummeled again on Tuesday! But, I am hazarding a guess that we'll have school if the storm rolls through late enough on Tuesday, and departs early Wednesday morning...;-0  We'll see if I am right!

Snow total thus far

We have received 89" of snow thus far this winter. We probably have a few more big storms left to come!


9" snow on the table at 9am...
Snow table got cleared at 9am and there was 9.5". Cleared it again at 3pm, and it had 6.5". Now, at 5:25pm, there is an additional inch. Total snowfall in our neck of the woods is 17", just shy of the predicted max of 18". I'd say the meteorologists were very accurate with this storm!

I am so bummed as I fractured my right arm, radius, last week and cannot shovel snow for the rest of winter / spring...
