There are many stories on TV about the depth of snow and nowhere to put it.

Long Island, Cape Cod, Boston and New Hampshire.

You guys OK???? I know you are out there.

We're OK here in West Virginia. I've got 3 inches on the ground - no big deal. Dang cold tho.

30+" here (NH). Deepest snow storm on record. But, it was under 20 degrees the whole time it was snowing so it was very light and cleaned up (relatively) easily. Schools were closed for a couple of days. I think people nearer to the coast fared worse.

Gorgeous winter day today. Strapped on the snowshoes and went for a walk in the woods with the dog.

Don't be surprised if the level of the Great Lakes takes a drop. We've gotten about a third or less than even last year. And, our 'Frozen Tundra' has had many days above freezing. Snowmobilers have not been thrilled at all. Jim - Do a Google search for 'Symco Thresheree' in reference to your profile picture.

Been in the twenties and thirties here in Wintersota for the last week or so. Absolutely no snow here in Central Minnesota. Much better then it was a week ago. I've only had to clear snow a few times this Winter. The cost of heating is down. The wildlife is having a much easier Winter. I suppose the snowmobilers, tow truck drivers, snowplow operators, cross-country skiers and all the other snow lovers are wishing it was different.

For the world, 2014 was the warmest year on record.

I have been unable to get a response from my kids in Patuxent River MD for a couple of days. Getting a little worried.

Anyone on here from around there?

We have about 14 inches on the yard that has accumulated during January. The storm that hit New England missed us in Upstate NY by about 300 miles. We sure are having cold weather though.

In NJ we only got about 4 inches. Went downhill skiing in eastern PA yesterday. Gorgeous weather, a bit of new snow, well-groomed, temp in the 20s. The storm was as bad as forecast, but the forecast direction was a bit off. The heavy weather was to the east. Apparently eastern New England got really clobbered.

We got buried here over 2 feet and more on the way. My 1969 Ariens snowblower I found in the trash 6 years ago hasn't skipped a beat. Danvers MA

-Jim-
That Ariens was built just down the road from here at Brillion, WI. Mine is still going strong after 20 years - Good to know!

Living in St Lawrence County, NY. We have less snow on the ground than John Nichols has over in Carthage only about 40 miles away. We did have about 3 feet back in Nov, that quickly melted.
We do have cold weather, well below zero many nights, with daytime highs in the single digits, today being the exception with a high in the middle 30s. Below 0 forecast for the next several nights with the high on Monday expected to be (-1). With Monday being that cold it should be sunny, so the groundhog will see its shadow. Spring is coming.

Marvin that's cool you live near the factory! I actually collect vintage Ariens equipment. I have the different mower attachments, lawn vac and chipper that attach to the snowblower tractor body when you remove the snowblower front half. The different attachments are called the "trac team". They all work well.

LOL. Only about 30 inches here with another 6 -8 forecasted for tomorrow.
Just another normal NH winter
Next year I will hibernate

Yep we are all good here, only about a foot of snow

And here in the southern Canadian prairies the ground is bare. Good thing I'm not a betting man as you can't even count on winter anymore. It seems as a kid we had mountains of snow each winter that a kid could dig tunnels in for endless hours of fun. The neighbor kids tried making a snowman last week and gave out when they ran out of snow and only had about a 10 inch ball rolled from some snow found in a shady spot! Then the rain came and obliterated it. My poor old snowblower is lonely in the garage!

Regards all,
Garnet

Doing wicked good on the coast of Maine - had a couple of feet that they are still moving in prep for tonight when we might see another foot - it drifted a lot on Tuesday, my back yard was nearly bare, but the front has 6-8 foot drifts.

I keep my Fisher Plow hooked up with the tank full this time of year - never know what's coming next.

Lost my daughter's Mini Cooper in a snow drift for awhile but could see the outline of our Dodge Caravan.

Good thing I have a snowblower with track drive but almost panicked when it stopped running halfway down the driveway.
After dragging it back to the garage I realized that the last person that used it forgot to put to fill it with gas.
Following a heated discussion with myself for not filling the tank, I was able to clean most of the driveway in two sessions one at 4 PM where the snow was close to 2 feet deep and another in the morning where there was another 6 inches.

Poor Sam "the Masshole" is supposed to get snow and rain today and Mark "the maniac" will get be getting another deep dusting. AND -- I hear we are all in for more on Monday.

James - If you go by my house and you can see in the window - I'll be the guy sleeping in the recliner! But I doubt if you'll be able to see my house because of the piles of snow

Had 2-3Ft. of snow here in Salem Ma. Worked storm duty Monday-Tuesday for the utility and came home to a 5Ft. drift blocking the front door. Oh well. The roadster is tucked away in the garage and up on Jacks until the better weather returns.

Recieved 2-3feet here in Salem, Ma. Had to work storm duty Monday-Tuesday for the utility, came home to a 5ft. drift blocking the front door. Anyhow the runabout is tucked away in the garage waiting for better weather.

George I didn't think there were any other Model T's in the area! I grew up right next door in Beverly and now live in Danvers. Great to find out someone else is in my area.

I've been pushing snow here in Ashtabula County Ohio since 4:45 am this morning. They were calling for 1/2 inch and we have received about a foot and it's still falling. I just stopped for something to drink (and of course I had to check the forum)


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By George W Danek on Friday, January 30, 2015 - 03:36 pm:

James, oh yea! Moved to Salem in 1988 and had a 1923 touring that i finally sold in 2005. Bought the roadster in 2010, started driving in 2014.

I think i met you last June at the Danvers Ford meet. Hope to be driving more this year.

There is also an elderly gentleman that has a '26 tudor in Marblehead.

George I remember talking to you at the Danvers Ford meet, if you need any help with your T let me know I would be happy to help.

James
