    Question Snow?

    How's everyone here in the East doing?

    see: Intellicast - Snow Cover in United States

    I and mine are fine. We only got around 10-12 inch's, with wide variations within short distances. Mainly a factor in how long it snowed before the lower level temperature dropped below freezing.

    I have a bit over 200 gal. of propane to fuel the emergency heat and generator, even if we lose power -- which seems rather remote at this point.

    Everyone, save one daughter, still has power.

    Although she heats w/wood and cooks with propane, the generator which I gave them is down. Poor maintenance???

    So, I was worried (it's a grand / great-grand thing) that they might run out of water (well) before the power came back on.

    So, I have a house full of kids (not so young) and grand and great-grand kids. Love it -- for a reasonable time, that is.

    How are thing with y'al?

    So far we're surviving. I had to get a pair of shorts back out and proceeded to get a sunburn. I'm praying we don't have to turn the air conditioner back on so soon. Planning on taking a motorcycle ride later this afternoon when it cools down a bit! GOD I'M GLAD I LEFT NEBRASKA!!!

    The photo looks like the local area. I love snow; but, right now, it sucks.

    That is a very nice photo... but as to me, I keep a 10 KW in the shop, 30 gallons of K1 for the heater, N we can heat with wood if necessary, the generator is so we can still flush the toilet, yeah 10 KW is overkill but who says that is all we are going to do.... as to the snow I have a Bobcat in the shop and if it gets too deep for that then no one is moving anywhere and we switch to the snowmobiles....

    We got about 10-12 inches here. I had a blast trying out the new snow tires on my Mazdaspeed 3, and I ran a few calls with the rescue squad.

    No offense, but 300 inches of snow is fun or enjoyable?
