What's It Like Outside Your Window


Just wondering who got it worse East coast, we're looking at about 8" piled up, still falling. It's been about 7 years since we've gotten a decent snowfall.

Hey man, that's probably our 15 year total accumulation. That much snow in one year would probably bankrupt the stateHeck, this one may do it!

Re: What's It Like Outside Your Window


Very windy here right now with a few flurries. The storm is suppose to stay to the East of us but i dont think they really know how much we are getting. I spent the last 2 days sanding driveways so at least i know i wont get stuck while plowing.

Not the east coast, no new snow and -20 this morning. It's been -20 past three or four nights.

Tired of it.

Hey Malco, what do you do with all that stuff? I've seen mobile snow melters that empty into the storm drains. What's the deal?
