Happy birthday, Jay!
Here's what we had to deal with yesterday.
We "only" had about 24 inches of snow (some parts of the state had 30"), but some drifts were pretty deep. This one is about 42 inches (that's a 48-inch rule sticking out), and I had to cut through this to get to the bird feeders and the fuel oil fill pipe.
Some pretty good drifts in the driveway too, but one side of my car had bare ground:
The street was going to be a problem:
Thankfully our neighbor Tony is generous with his Bobcat:
Only the back half of the Miata was buried:
This northern flicker was having a tough time
But this cardinal seemed to be just fine
Even with Tony's help, I spent about 6 hours clearing. One of our other neighbors is a nurse in a neonatal intensive care unit. She went to work Friday night and she hasn't been back. We always team up to do her driveway so she doesn't have to worry about that. She even leaves us her snowblower.
Roads are clear today, but narrow, and the snow piles at major intersections make it hard to see merging traffic. No school tomorrow so they have more time to clear away the piles. Did some x-country skiing today when my daughter was at hockey practice, and hope to get out again some nights this week after work.
Overall, no real problems, although my relatives on the south shore may not see their power back for at least a few more days.
