Re: Your Weather

UJB, you need a snowblower man, shoveling that much snow is a heart-attack inducing, back busting job.

Actually I have 2. One is a paddle type and the other has the auger. I knew the paddle didn't stand a chance against that much snow so I fired up the big boy. With the snow being almost twice as high as the opening, I was just carving a tunnel and the snow was falling right back on the walk so I just shoveled it out.

Once I broke through to the driveway I emlpoyed the really heavy artillery.

Re: Your Weather

Actually I have 2 of those as well. The dump truck on the right is harder to maneuver in tight spots so I only use that on large, wide open parking lots.

Re: Your Weather

You have some nice equipment there UJB. In my younger years I drove snow-plow for the county, I enjoyed driving but after a while it just wore me out.

Re: Your Weather

It was nice while it lasted.

We've had almost 2 weeks of above average winter weather. The snowpack was down to about 6". So of course it decided to snow again. We're looking at 3"-5" by tonight. Much better than the 30" we had from the last storm, but the rodent said we were getting an early spring so I was hoping he was right.

Once the snow is over the temp's are going to plummet. High's in the 20'sF and lows in the single digits by this weekend. http://www.desismileys.com/smileys/desismileys_2646.gif

Re: Your Weather

Hopefully you won't get hit as bad the last snow ujb. So far only dusting of snow has fallen in my area. I hope the little rodent was right too.

Re: Your Weather

We had +40 cms (16") dumped on us in 18 hours, between Monday 6:00pm and yesterday noon. It was delivered by high winds, which made driving impossible due to no visibility and lots of drifting. It's nothing like the crazy volumes we saw last winter, so none of us Canucks are complaining ... not very much, anyway. smile

Re: Your Weather

Brrrrrrrrr....

Joe - your snow didn't MELT down there?  We had beautiful green grass and the kids were bouncing on the trampoline the other day.  We've got snow again though today.  sad 

TF - I hear ya!  I'm trying NOT to complain, because it's nothing like the last few years.  It's really been a very mild winter!  All the same, I wish it wouldn't snow on the days I HAVE to be on the road.  LOL!

Re: Your Weather

Temperature swing!!!

It's -15C here right now (+7F) and supposed to swing to +10C (+50F) by this time tomorrow. Nova Scotia juts into the Atlantic where the Gulf Stream passes just offshore from us, and when the wind direction changes, wild temp swings occur. The vinyl siding will be popping and clicking as it expands, but it'll give a chance to get the driveway down to bare pavement again.

Sorry Amy, I missed this.

Nope. Still have about an 8" snowpack left over from that 30" dump a couple weeks ago, but I believe that will be changing in a couple days.

We have that same swing coming but not before we get a couple inches of new snow followed by a layer of ice. I hate ice!

I plowed and salted the driveway so it was clear a few days after we got clobbered.

Re: Your Weather

koo koo crazy weather!  I shouldn't complain, considering how cold it was last year.  However, we had a few days of warmth where nearly all the snow was melted.  Then all of a sudden the temperature plummeted to below zero (like -20ish F and even lower in some nearby areas -- that's around -30 C).  A few days of frigid temps where the furnace was having a hard time keeping the old house warm, and then the temps went up.  Last night we got a good 8 inches of snow WITH rain.  My driveway is 100% slush right now, and a LOT of it. Guess I'll go see how the new car handles it.  There's no way I'm shoveling that junk!  LOL!

The day we got the big snow dump there last week, I shoveled the driveway.  I have a step tracker/watch/etc.  It logged me as having covered 2 MILES over 2 HOURS

JUST. SHOVELING. SNOW. IN. MY. DRIVEWAY. 

2 miles people!  My driveway is not THAT long, but apparently if you walk it to cover every single square inch, it is. And I must say, I did pretty well considering I covered that area in 2 hours while shoveling!  ha ha!

Re: Your Weather

We have had nearly 24 hours of rain, so far, and more is scheduled for the rest of the week. Per my rain gauge, here at my wife's house, we have gotten almost 6", overnight. Before this storm is over they are predicting us to get another 8 to 10 inches of rain. Flash flood warnings are in affect and our schools are closed.

As of 10:15pm tonight we have received another 10.81" of rain bringing the 2 day total to 16.42". Guess what? It's still raining! We may end up getting another 6 to 8" of rain overnight. The amount of rain we are getting is unheard of and they are predicting the rain to continue through the weekend. So far me and mine are high and dry but a lot of people have been flooded. Roads are closed as well as schools and business'.

Re: Your Weather

Depending on which weather station you are listening to we have had between 19 1/2 and 20 1/2 inches of rain in the last 44 hours. And it's still raining with more predicted thru Sunday. We did get a little break today and everyone has their fingers crossed that the next weather system will not be as bad. BUT, it sure ain't purty around here. In our immediate area there is somewhere around 3000 families that have had to evacuate their homes. Many more with water damage to homes, vechiles and other items. Overnight the river and our local lakes rose 6+ feet, which is unheard, and this has many families stranded. The water came up so fast that there was no way to prepare for it. I expect it to take several more day's before we know the full extent of all that has happened. The only problems I've had, knock on wood, is we have a small roof leak in one of our bedrooms. This is caused by a rubber boot around a roof vent,. Have to wait to fix it after the rain stops but it is under control, for now. Our other issue is with our 60" screen tv. The picture is distorted and the color is way off. This one will cost us some money as we will, most likely, have to buy a new one. I know my issues are nothing compared to what other folks are going thru. I'm keeping them in my prayers and will extend all the help I can towards their needs.
