Even more snow

It’s been quite a March weather wise; this is our third storm this month.

We haven’t gotten that much snow but this stuff weighs about 20 pounds a shovel full.

The bad news:

There is no power at the shop today so nothing will go out the door.

The good news:

I get to stay home, read, sit by the fire, and play with the dogs all day.

I do have a little case work I need to do.

Finish that off this evening with a good meal and a little single malt and you’ve had a good day.

Maybe it will be sunny and bright tomorrow.

How’s everyone else fairing?

D,

Whereabouts do you live? I am guessing New England. Here in SE PA, we were bracing for #3, but it turned out to be a dusting. After the first two noreasters, we are "grizzled veterans".:):emoji_cloud_snow:

Regards.

Here we have green lawns and robins back from their migration. All of our snow disappeared during a mild spell in February, with only light dusting since. Our daily temperatures have been either above freezing or close for a month or so.

I've just returned from driving across the U.S. - Virginia to California. I hit the weather just right. Rain was either a day ahead of me or a day behind. In between, it was BEAUTIFUL. A couple of photos as proof... Petersburg, Virginia and Vicksburg, Mississippi.

Of course it wasn't all perfect. That nasty Nor'easter on March 2 caused my connecting flight to Virginia to be cancelled, so I got there a day late.

That's the weather you want, Dave. In a couple of weeks, my wife and I will be driving to Missouri to meet our son. I hope for the weather you show. Our part of Maryland has been blissfully snow free this winter (I say that cautiously). I begrudge none the terrible weather from the Nor'easters, but I am thankful that none of that has hit us. (I hope I haven't spoken too soon.!)

View attachment 466817 I took the Unimog out to see what is going on and it is a mess out there, we are really in for it here in Rhode Island.

There must be 14 to 16 inches of it out there and it’s still coming down hard.

Omexa,

A couple of fingers with a splash beats a foot of snow any night.

New2clocks,

That Noreaster hit us hard. I’ve just started clearing the downed trees on my lot and I’ve already stacked over three cords. I have a ton of small pieces to shred when the weather breaks.

Harold,

That just doesn’t seem right. There’s plenty to go around. I would gladly share some of this with you.

Dave,

Nice photos, they make me think of spring here which seems a long way off today.

Steven,

If it’s going to snow this is what I want to see. I’d rather see three of these than ten storms of 2 to 3 inches. Most drivers will stay off the roads today. When we get only a couple of inches the roadways get crazy.

It’s forcast to keep up until late evening. I can’t wait to see what it looks like tomorrow morning.

D~

Our robins are back too, and we're expecting 60 degree weather today. I'll try to send some of it your way ;)

When I had to deal with shoveling, I really appreciated those storms that deposited the snow at a rate that I could keep up with, every several hours. There's nothing worse than having to "dig out".

Well, spring my butt, here comes maybe a foot of snow overnight on the first day, time to kick the groundhog. Right now, sleet and big flakes, most coming later tonight.

In SE PA, we are getting clobbered with our 3rd nor'easter. Hopefully, no power outages this time!

Regards.

It has finally started to snow here in NJ at 2:30 PM. From weather channels it may not amount to much of anything when it is done. I cut back my work schedule to only local calls, I do automotive warranty inspections, and lost about $200 because of the scary forecast.

Hi richiec, I know what you mean, when I lived on Mt Nelson we sometimes had to climb out the window in the laundry because of 4 feet of snow piled against the Doors. I was going to UTAS (University) then and down in Hobart there was no snow so the University was open and it was a real slog going down and later back up.
"Mt Nelson Steps to the Mount Nelson Signal Station
Time: 1.5 hours return Difficulty: Challenging Start off at Churchill Avenue opposite the University of Tasmania. This is a very challenging walk, as the first part up the steps gets very steep! This may not be a walk for beginners, more something to work your way up to, with the added benefit being the reward of a long black at the Signal Station Café."
During the snow season I was doing this every weekday. I Lived about 500 yards from the Signal Station Café. I was pretty fit back then and I used to run up the steps; not down too slippery. Regards Ray

Omexa, I used to be fit also, used to run the mile around the block to the local watering hole and then try to run home after a "short" stay. But time waits for no man, even me.

Quite a bit of snow (again) in Eastern Europe. Around a week ago we had 25 degrees Celsius for a few days and it looked like winter was long gone but nope...

How’s everyone doing weatherwise?

It was snowing here late last night but there was hardly anything on the ground this morning and the roads were dry by noon. We got lucky.

Maybe spring is on the way.
