A foot in Providence County MA. I feel bad for NWS trying to keep up with all the reports coming in.

Just checking in reading the posts, and hope everyone stays safe, not worth trying to go out. My little 7-8" snowfall last night pales by comparison but I did have some serious drifts this morning. It does look pretty but I'm retired and don't have to be anywhere.

Be sensible, take it easy with the shoveling, even the snowblower, check on your neighbors, see if they need help!

When I first moved here from Illinois 5 yrs. ago I didn't know a soul, moved cold turkey, I really appreciated the young couples in the neighborhood who came and helped me in winter. I now have a 5 hp. 5 speed snowblower, dynamite!

We had a flash of lightening and a thunderboom around 15 minutes ago. Our lights juuuuuuust barely flickered, and the wind is howling out there. We turned the heat up to 70 just in case we lose power. Maybe it'll give us an extra 2 minutes of warmth in the house, heh.

Listening to the weather channel, talking about the wet snow, just a few inches so far (not sure where he was), people maybe thinking it isn't going to happen, I would say, hang on, it will happen.

I posted several times yesterday how wet the snow was and did not think we would get the 7", drifting, wind because of the wetness. Came out this monring there were drifts and it wasn't as wet. By the time I went to bed the wind really picked up and I sure could tell various places in the yard.

I'm watching the snow totals now, WOW! This is one serious storm, very serious stuff. Now they are talking about the next one, which will hit Mpls and NW Wisc. on Sunday. I think we're on the rain/sleet side of that one and with luck maybe it won't hit the east coast!

Oh, it's happening. Sounds like Hurricane Sandy outside.

Very bad here in Eastern MA near the NH border on the coast. Noisy storm! Front door blew in and piles of snow came in (I hadn't locked it). You can't see in front of your face if you stick your nose out the door. Anyone would be crazy to go out there and anyone who tries to drive in this is beyond nuts. The worst of the storm is supposed to hit overnight and tomorrow.
