    Years ago our facility would bring us to work but now they say it's not allowed because of insurance reasons; so I'll stay home.

    Melissa24, I live in southeastern PA and the picture you posted of your 2 cars covered with snow looked so much like our cars and the area where we park them that I did a double-take! We park in an area behind our house that is reached by an alley which the town doesn't plow. We started shoveling the 20 inches yesterday for about an hour and then worked on shoveling the alley with our neighbor and her teenage son this morning. Whatta back-breaker! I said to my husband, "Two words: Condo Association."

    The neighbors and we will definitely be setting up a contract with a plow next winter...

    Most of our main roads are now plowed here (2 days later), but the secondary roads and parking lots still are not, so it wouldn't be any better living in a condo or apartment.

    Our driveway is 4000 square feet, and it has taken me 7 hours to shovel 1/3 of that. Lots more work, but good exercise.

    Our final count was 26.6". It broke all kinds of records.

    Well they are saying we got 30 Inches....Hubby said more like 25"

    Who cares..... It was a lot! But I don't mind..... condsidering we didn't get any snow last year or the year before that! It kind of made up for it

    The pics look just like here in Western Ohio. Brought back many memories of the blizzard of '78! Anyone else remember that one??

    laughing at connie f's pictures. how very "pa like". i thought you might live in my town the houses etc. are so similar to those here in south central pa.they must be the generic pa houses.

    two feet fell here and now just big huge piles w/ little trails carved out. most roads clear. it's a mess buteveryone's getting around ok today.

    i worked 7p to 11 a on sunday/monday. what an adventure. our doc who was sleeping at the hospital got a call from a 29 weeker w/ twins who's water broke. my heart sank when she told me. we are level one and it was snowing like mad (i didn't know how pt. would get to the closest hospital w/ a nicu-20 miles away). then she told me pt. was in another state visiting family and was on her way to a hospital w/ a nicu. what a blessing! 3 deliveries, 2 who were supposed to go to other hospitals. what a night! glad it only happens once every few years.

    We would just like some staedy rain - got the fright of my life heading home from work an hour ago - the helitankers (3) were flying over my area - 60 Heactares of hill went up near where we live

    Actually - when l travelled overseas l really loved it when it snowed - guess its cause its is such a novelty for most Aussie - so keep your toes warm and your homes happy.

    JUst send us a little water our way

    Had 2 feet here in Virginia. Starting sleeting Friday night, changed to snow Saturday morning, and finished Tuesday morning. Finally got the car dug out. I don't think the piles of snow will be gone until April. Fortunately, I had plenty of food and such. Being an agency nurse, the past few days were a loss. Oh, well. Comes with the territory.

    Where I live, only 13 inches of very light snow....but I was stuck at work at the time of the storm, which is 30 miles north of where I live in New England, and THAT city got 21 inches! I had to stay over night, and my car was completely buried.......just a big white bump in the parking lot. I have to admit that the snowplows did a pretty good job though, at least on the highways and in the town where I live. I'm pretty impressed.

    Man what a dig-out!! I owunderstad whytheschoolswereclosed on Tuesday too, they couldn't get the school buses out of the lot. I had to geta drug test for my new job yesterday, and saw the struggle anyone who doesn't have a driveway, and had to park on the street was in for.

    The snow is always pretty, but the digging out sucks. NO garbage pick-up, no mail, it really has an amazing ripple effect.
