We have about 10 inches already with several hours more comming. Tuff on an old man's back. I think some of you got much more. How much?

Looks like we'll be locked up all weekend. Got the Mountaineers coming on in ten min. and of course the Super Bowl. so, good time as any for it.
Our power has not gone off, thank God. Yours? I guess if it did you wouldn't be reading this or responding, huh?

I am guessing we got about 18 inches in Pittsburgh. I am not sure how accurate that is; just an estimate.

This snow is a hard pack too. It was really tough to shovel through this stuff.

The only good thing about the snow is that I have Netflix and a bunch of movies to stream ready to go. Also, I have beer.

sun came out around 2:30 and even though it's cold, sun does a lot to get things going both physically and mentally. It's supposed to be out again Sunday. good

Me neither. We will get some rain tonight though. Weather today was about like the 3rd best day of the summer in WNY. Had to wear a hoody to the DH. 8-) 8-) 8-)

About 20 inches here in the South Side. Most of the bars hadn't even opened by dinner time. You know things are bad when you can't get a drink on the South Side. 8-)

That's harsh...I couldn't imagine a scenario of not being able to get a drink on the South Side. In fact I can't imagine not being able to get a drink in less than a block from just about any point on Carson.

Northern Jersey got nothing more than a dusting. Southern Jersey got absolutely dumped upon. Here's a pic from a friend of mine who lives near the Jersey shore:

Here In Johnstown, PA...We got 3 feet!!!...

The city never came to where I live to plow me out so I had to shovel the alley and the side street to get to the main road...Then had to go shovel my grandfather out too...My arms and back are so sore...

We are now up to about 3 ft total.

The most amazing non-occurrance to me is the complete lack of 12-14 yo's out and about to make money. These kids could get rich off just me, if they could get off their PS3's.

Sorry to hear of your bad luck. Not like you to rub our noses in it, AZ.

Sorry sub. That was not the intent. :o :o :o Sounds like what my dad would call a good old fashioned winter. Of course he is from northern Minnesota so it doesn't seem to bother him much. 8-) 8-) 8-)

If they've already got their PS3 then I guess they don't need to be making money off you! :lol:
