2 hours after the storm hit central Ohio, I took a shot with my Eddystone. My internet connection is not functioning properly due to the storm, but as soon as the connection allows the whole video to upload, I'll display it in this comment.

Like Rahm told me, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,"

Nice shot! I'll be adding an Eddystone to my collection sometime this year!

They getting all our snow!

I run a plow truck for the company and am missing a chance to at least make 40 hrs (we're at a manditory 32 hr max) if not some O/T and I also fix small engine power equipment and with no snow nobody is breaking anything!

According the news we're 15" short of the normal amount for the season in upstate NY so far.

Maybe burying D.C. in snow is Gods way of telling the Dems global warming is strickly up to Him!

All we're getting here is rain and a TON of it. MY yard looks like a swamp and there is a river going down my driveway.

Tango, my friend in Berryville is getting the same. He's shoveling in shifts, too. We got about 6" which is plenty for us. I feel for ya brother and the rest of the FTF community who are in the same boat. Take it easy when shoveling because this is a heavy wet snow. Then, get the kids out to make a huge snowman!

Right now we have to be sitting at 3' of NEW SNOW on top of the 12 to 18" we had to start with. It is still snowing like crazy here in Stafford. My wife has to go to work tonight at 7pm she is leaving at 4 pm I hope she can get off the street really.

This storm is crazy I have never seen this much snow fall for this long. We are lucky so far (KNOCK ON WOOD) still have the power.

I am really worried about these two big 100+ year old oaks on the property one has a branch that is at least 40' long. I have a bad feeling we may be taking it down after this storm.

Some how I lost the driver side wiper blade and couldn't find it in the snow. How the hell you can't find a black wiper in white snow is beyond me.

Here are a few pics.

I was out playing with the dogs and I tossed my basset Hound into the snow and she disappeared. They love the snow. Pics to follow once the snow stops, I don't wanna take the nice camera out while it's snowing.

Got about 18" here in SW Pa overnight.
Power flickered a few times last night but luckily never went out.

Got my car out (first on the block, and we have a guy who has a snowblower, I got a cheap plastic shovel).

Let me know if these pics don't show for people, I have not used Picasa before.



The dogs are still standing on a good 6-12" of snow. We just walked around making a path for them to walk in.



SWMBO's 2-wheel drive truck. I don't see this being used for a few days.


Here's the whole album.
