East Coast Winter Storm - page 6
Just wondering how many of you are getting hit with this east coast storm? How many inches have you gotten so far???... Read More
Feb 19, '03We got 28" where I live in PA - schools are closed AGAIN! The children haven't been to school since last Thursday and are driving me NUTS
Feb 19, '03We made it to Atlantic City before the storm hit, probably 3ft or so there, it was weird to see snow drifts on the beach and a total white out, oh well, back to the blackjack table. Not such a bad place to be snowed in.
Feb 19, '03I never thought I would have such a back ache... I shoveled and shoveled some more... My father-n-law saved the day by finding a guy up here on the mountain that has a tractor with a front end loader and scaper... He went through our long driveway like it was nothing.... You ought to see the pile of snow, it will take months for it to melt.. but anyway, I am FREE!!!!!! (but I still might stay home)... School is closed today for the third day.. The side streets are still a mess but the main roads are okay...

Feb 19, '03Julie, your pics are the most impressive so far! WOW!!!
Love that signature line too! LOL!
I do home health and it has been a challenge to get to people. We have to park wherever we can and hike to the home. My longest walk today was 2 city blocks. Many dug out parking spaces have lawn chairs in them, and I heard last year in Philly someone was killed over moving someone's chair, so I am leaving them alone. I know if I had to work that hard ton dig out my car I'd be pizzed if someone took my spot too!!! Other nurses hadf to park in driveways of neighbors, and some pt's just couldn't be seen, some streets still have not been plowed at all. Hopefully we'll get to them by the end of the week!
Feb 19, '03Here in Utah, we have NOTHING! AHHHH! Two feet or more is normal here in the winter but it is currently sunny skies in the upper 60's. I am going to keel over if we don't get some soon!
Just as a side note: We don't even consider closing anything down until we get at least 3 feet. I'll never get a snow day!

Feb 19, '03I'm sorry, but I'm laughing uncontrollably.....not at all of you poor souls that aren't used to the snow and don't have the resources to take care of it, but my co-worker was just on the phone with someone from NYC telling them that we only got 12 inches of it here in Syracuse, NY!!!! Unfortunately, we've had so much 12 inches is only a mere inconvenience!! Is that sad or what?!
Feb 19, '03I was snowed in all weekend at my boyfriends house and their computer connection sucks! AHHH! So I was without internet for so long. My eyes needed the break anyways ...
At the jersey shore (south, Ocean City area) there was alot of snow, but then monday morn (early) it turned to rain and sleet and the snow started to disspate. Then only to turn to ice and be impossible to drive on side streets.
When I got home yesterday afternoon (still in south jersey, but right outside philly)... to my surprise the mounds of snow in front of my house that my brother and parents had shoveled ... I wish I had the time to play in it ...
20 inches of snow sounds fun. Plus I was iceskating on my driveway this morning trying to get to work ...

Enjoyed your pics! Thanks for sharing. Here in Southern Conn. we got between 18-24 inches of snow.
I love the pic of your cocker spaniel. I have a black one and he loves the snow. LOL, he just plows through it with his nose and hates to come in. What a mess though, he gets "ice balls" underneath frozen to his body, lol......ofcourse, he is still a pup, just about 7 months old now. They sure are cute, huh?
Bye for now,
Feb 20, '03Did anyone have to work that day and were you able to get into work? What happend if you could not get in??? Did your hospital come out and get you?? Or discipline you either on the phone or in person????
Monday was a hopsital holiday here---if you had off great, BUT, if you didn't show up on Tuesday because you were still digging yourself out, the you forfeited Monday's holiday pay. Is that right???
