It started here ay 3:30pm. The latest snowfall estimate here is 25".  :o

West Virginia and Maryland both declared a state of emergency.

I just pitched the yeast into my ESB. All is well.

Hey no fair!  All you flatlanders getting all the snow and you don't even know how to deal with it! 

We could use a few yards of snow up here!   ;D

Sure we do. A gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs and beer.  ;D

What more can one ask.  ;)

 ;D,

starting to see some rotation now.

Nightfall setting it, man that gives me goosebumps.
Can't imagine having to deal in the city though.  Ugh.

Stay in and stay safe!

Just finished my second shoveling.  Pulled about 10 inches off so far.  Thinking about just drinking and shoveling all night and sleeping tomorrow.  I hate the thought of having to shovel a foot or two all at once.

Well,  it's just about 7 am here.  Been up for about an hour.  Very windy and a lot of drifting.  Gonna brew that Dortmunder today and shovel.  Should keep me out of trouble.  Nice part is, the wind has blown a clear section for the dogs to go out in, so at least I don't have to shovel a area for them too. ;D I here that southern Delaware hasn't gotten as much as they thought, although they will have way more than a foot when it's over.  Gotta love snow.  Glad I'm from upstate NY.  This is child's play here, except when people try to drive. :o

We have about 16" right now with another forecasted 12" to come. The drifts are several feet and piling. My Labrador loves the snow...

I am planning to head out and start snowblowing very soon.

Just finished my fourth shoveling.  Almost two feet so far and still coming down like a mutha.  House one behind us and one to the right had a big evergreen (40+ feet) come down...  took out a section of the behind us neighbors fence and is now mostly sitting in his in ground pool.
