Now that's funny!

I had this vision of his frozen GF covered in 20 inches of snow. Laughed my a$$ off.
Sorry i'm a little warped; documented and confirmed by the wife.

A 65 Chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 with chains and a Detroit lock front axle. A 7' Fisher hydraulic plow. Low range, 1st gear and Jemesons! Plowing is done for today! It will take another round tomorrow. The snow was knee + deep. Blowing hard still. Lunch time!

I did exactly the same thing .....well minus the truck, the snow plough and the cains........come to think of it, I just sat down with a bottle of Jamesons. Near enough for me to count.

We just closed on a house last Monday. I cleared the driveway by hand at the rental, as it is not that long (about 3 car lengths) but we went to the new house and just kept looking at the driveway. Luckily the agent that had the listing for the house we bought came by in a Chevy K2500 with Fisher plow. He charged us $50 to plow it, and I remember just righting out a check for $8000 to him, did not make me happy, and he did a crappy job. but it sure beat trying to shovel a 150 foot driveway and turnaround with 18 inches of snow by hand! And there was no one else even answering phone calls.

We were supposed to start moving this weekend but that got delayed. I think we need to invest in a really big snow blower. I suggested putting a plow on the wife's BMW SUV but she did not like the idea.

Re: Nor'easter

Seems just under a foot here in western Long Island, didn't bother
to crank up the snowblower as wife (and I) didn't mind the workout.
After dinner off to do some snowshoeing to walk it off, to bad no moon tonight.

Sad. Having been in the real estate business with my wife for years, I would have plowed your driveway for free... and brought you a bottle of wine to enjoy by the fireplace that evening.

Re: Nor'easter

To all those folks in New England who got real snow/wind/ice this weekend I hope the power's on, the scotch is on the rocks, the fireplace is crackling and FerretChaser has let the girlfriend in to snuggle on the couch.

My sarcasm was directed to the weather twirps in the Philadelphia media who were hyping this as the next storm of the century. For us it was far from it.

And somehow I have an image of the SailNet Canadians laughing at us weak knee'd Americans having trouble with just 30 inches -- or what they call a "dusting" in Canada.

95 Catalina 30 Island Time

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
