You know that CT is south of us, right? How would your house be on the way in that scenario?

I'll pick you up on the way still, just curious.
Ummmm........Yup, I know where CT is and you'll need to be on 95 anyway. You may as well just cut down 110 and over to....Oh, forget it! I just wanted to come fishin'.

Hey Dave! You sure you only got 4 inches? Perhaps you got the same as us, but your driveway was "over 500 degrees, very hot!!!!" and it all melted???
NO TOUCH!!!!!

Hope you don't get mad, but I'm gonna clog up the thread for a minute with some pictures from the blizzard.

Getting Christopher ready to head outside..





Juliana snow tubing down the front steps..







Here was part of our driveway..







I would have died if it wasn't for my neighbors that came over with their snow blowers.



The 1 lane road on my street.



From the side of the road where my mailbox is to the 'new' road is about 10-15 feet. I doubt I'll be getting mail for a few weeks.



Juliana on the back porch with the snow over her head...



A few drifts. My poor boat.



Juliana sledding down the snow pile I shoveled from the first part of the driveway.




They canceled school tomorrow. Some of the cities around us still have roads that aren't plowed yet. We are supposed to have freezing rain in the morning then rain. It is gonna be a mess out there because all the storm drains are covered. I am thankful that we never lost power.

Looks like he was having a blast! Great pic!

Make sure you check out the igloo tomorrow. The penguins might have taken up residence in there.

So are you all dug out now, when I was a teenager we took full advantage of the snow making a ton of cash shoveling, we would work as a team of 5 and get driveways done in no time, at the end of the day we would have a couple hundred bucks each, not bad for the 80's but people will pay if you do a good job and can dig them out quick so they can go to work or at least try You just don't see it too much anymore teenagers willing to do a little work to make some money, but then again today's teenagers at least around here sleep way too much

There is a side note on these gift auctions, since 98% of people at these are women and 2% guys (most are seniors), the women tend to try to make conversation with you (especially the older ones) well today I was checking out the prizes, we had not been able to find seats (mainly because everyone was up putting tickets in, so you could not really tell if any seats were available, coats were everywhere), a women starts making small talk with me about the prizes, I mentioned that after this table I was going to search for a seat for my wife and I, she quickly said they had 2 seats no one was using at their table so we went and dropped off our coats, what a great table it was they had a ton of food that they insisted we help ourselves too,
