I grant that we're just a wee bit warmer than Webster NY outside Rochester.

It just started here in North Jersey. It was not to start until after midnight. It is coming down as ice, but not heavy yet. However, it is picking up in intensity.

In the attached picture below you can see white specs on the car's windshield. That is ice the size of snow flakes.

Now the NOAA prediction is up to 18.5 for us , will be interesting how much we get. TV says dry fluffy snow for us. But heavy wet snow for Boston and Cape Cod, so they predict outages for them.

I sold the Westinghouse last year or was it 2 years ago? Time flies.

How many garages? Too many when I have to clean them out...

Tuesday Morning 6:45 am. So far we ONLY got 2 inches of snow, but expecting 2 feet by the end of the day. My workplace as well as many others are closed today. Plow trucks are busy whacking down the accumulations and will do so all day long. No one wants to plow 2 feet of snow in one shot.

I setup 3 of my security cameras from different areas of my property for anyone to view. I listed the URLs of each camera below with a description of the view. You will be logging directly into the camera, not my video security server console. Please see the attached pictures below to help you size and view the cameras otherwise the picture will be toooooo large for your screen and blurry or not viewable at all. I have my cameras to stream using H264, but you would need software to decode it, so you need to view it as MJPEG especially for the 3rd camera listed below. Not hard to do.....

Since the video is going through a home internet connection, expect the video to be choppy and if too many are viewing at the same time, the video may not load. **** Please exit the Camera video page view when done viewing otherwise it will slow down my internet as well as yours. ***

As daylight appears, the images from the cameras will be much better. These cameras are usually blurry in the dark.

Best to view using Chrome. IE will not work with their latest release. Other browsers will work so I am told...

10 or more inches here and it is just now starting to really come down hard. I suppose I should clear the driveway now to make room for another foot or so.

JohnnyC- it does not look good by u !!!!!!!!!! Everything is shut down here, schools ,state, and such.

41 degrees right now and raining like crazy, looks like some snow by noon or so, then rain again, then ice, who knows, but gotta love the ocean warmth!!!!!

It will work against you though, giving 2 storms with the counter clockwise swirl. get it comming and going.

Johnny, your gettin that snow looks like kings is closed. down the shore Ed and I are just getting very heavy wind and rain along with forty deg temps. Southern Ocean county I think has the best weather in the country all four seasons summer not too hot winter not too cold, but like Ed said the Ocean stabilizes our weather it also can kick you in the a.. never forget sandy.

Yeah, we are getting hit hard. The Kings supermarket was open at 6 am, but I assume they shut down. All the plowers gone back into hiding for now.. I am inside and maybe around noontime I will take a few swipes down the driveway and parking lot with my plow truck. My crazy friend wanted to cruise the streets in his BMW. I told him not to call me when he gets stuck.

For now, I watch the snow, watch TV and relax. It will be very busy later.

Yes, it's true. 14" not far from here and we're all dead.

ran the snow blower down the driveway and around the shed. Did a path in the yard for the dog. But of course after 9 yrs of blowing snow, it feels like the friction disc is starting to go. I hope it holds out for one more run. 12 inches so far and it looks like blizzard conditions out there. Had to dump a little Kahlua in the coffee this morning, just for kicks.

10:25 am - Strong winds, snow and ice coming down. When the wind blows hard, the ice sounds like someone is sandblasting the sides of my house.

I think we got about 10 inches of snow, but not sure. I'm toooo chicken to go out there (actually relaxing watching TV).

I wonder if the local pizza shop is making lunch deliveries today?

Awwww, I had wanted to buy that....

It's just after 8 am here, and already the photons are really starting come down in buckets. It's supposed to be hot here today, into the 80's. But I don't like heat, and I'll take your weather any day vs being surrounded by Californians and Their Big Brother Government! Looking forward to leaving here.

Anyone running on generator power yet? I'd fire one up for fun today, but most of them are still in progress. I really need to stop working on more than one at a time.

Enjoy your snow!

Keith

Mikey- try and see if u have any adjustment left so it wont slip and get u through.

After the storm i would split it in half or pull bottom plate to check if u have any rubber left on the friction wheel, if not you will tear up the drive plate and be in for big bucks. Think mine was 100.00 for the plate alone.

Im sure u know this already, but figured i would add my .02, Ed

Just got back in from taking the snow down. I rather do 1/2 now and the remainder later. Doing all the accumulated snow especially when dark is tricky especially plowing around the tenant's vehicles. I get within 1.5 feet and they can dig the rest of the snow away from their vehicles.

Still got grid power. the lights did not blink at all. You know why? 'cause there is an Onan on standby waiting. I would bet $100 that if I remove the head or carb on my Onan right now with no backup generator, the grid power would shut down for days.

Yesterday I planned to work the day in my workshop. I cut firewood wood and prepared yesterday. Today, I feel lazy and will sit back and surf the internet and watch TV. I will be back out to do another snow cleanup before it gets dark.

16 inches and counting here. Power is still on. I will have to clear the driveway again soon. Funny thing about having a gravel driveway, you spend all winter throwing the gravel onto the dam lawn and then all summer mowing in back onto the driveway. good thing I lots of shear pins and a knack for sharpening lawn mower blades.
