    Started snowing here in Jersey about 11am on Sunday morning and it's 5:30am Monday morning and still snowing. Front door has about 1 1/2 feet of snow in front of it and back door has about 2 1/2 feet, good thing we can get out of the house through our garage. Haven't heard a snow plow all night, guess town is waiting until the snow stops. I've lived here 50 years and this is the biggest snow storm I've ever seen.

    How about your area? May in Jersey

    Only wind now. Not too much snow - not as much as they predicted, but it has blown into some very high drifts. Seems like you all got the brunt of the storm. Stay warm and safe today! NJ is in a state of emergency - so stay inside :)

    Just saw on NY TV news reporting from shopping plaza in my town snow fall was 22". Main highway and avenues are cleared of snow but still ice on the roads, no snow falling or wind right now. Staying indoors catching up on my laundry and keeping nice and warm in Jersey. May

    We have about 6 inches or so at the house. There is a lot more up in the nearby mountains. Roads are still snow covered and slick.
    DH made it to work, I have to go to work later today.
    In the mean time - I'll be working from home.

    We only have about 1.5".
    But we've been watching the blizzard in the east.
    Stay safe.

    I'm west of Philly and have about 6 inches. It is blowing something fierce. I still have to go out and shovel the driveway so I can take the dog for his knee x-ray this afternoon.

    We have over a foot here and it is still snowing. My co-worker called and told me the boss said for us to stay home. I would have had to walk since there is no way to get out of the driveway. So I'm drinking coffee and reading the board. Perhaps next I'll start a new project or watch a movie???

    Yes, there's alot of snow in my part of Jersey, too. My husband just put on his boots to go out and dig out the cars. I worry about him because he has heart disease but he insists on going out. It's suppossed to be in the 50's by the end of the week. I guess the longer he waits the heavier it will get. My DD was in a wedding yesterday and she is stuck in a hotel in South Jersey. Gonna get my boots on, too.

    Whew!!!! I just went out and did part of the driveway. Is it cold and windy!!! I'll go back out in a few minutes. My neighbor across the street has a snow blower and usually does mine, but he doesn't seem in any rush to get outside this morning so I will be almost done when he comes out. I love winter and snow, but this year with having to walk the dog on leash whenever he needs to go out, and having to keep the ramp clear of snow, I would rather this be our big storm of the winter. Ordinarily I would stay home and wait till the snow melts to go out, but have to take him a half hour away to his x-ray this afternoon.

    We live in Pennsylvania and no snow here but old snow.

    You people are getting the snow we ususally get.
    I don't mind it at all. I like to share equally to your states not ours.
    I'm sick of it already I'm counting down till spring.

    I am in southeastern Virginia very near the coast. We had 14" of snow fall here - 3rd biggest snowfall in the last 100 years! We are NOT used to this kind of snow here (schools close for a couple of inches and the threat of ice)

    When I lived in Tennessee everything shut down when it snowed. Coming from central Illinois I thought that was pretty funny. Either things have changed or you both must work in "essential" jobs. I lived in Eastern Tennesse, by Knoxville.
    Just drive slowly, brake gently if at all, and don't accelerate fast. You'll be fine.

    BTW, yes, we have about a foot here but our road crews have cleared most of it off the roads, put salt down and driving is basically okay. It's supposed to be in the 50's by Friday here which will cause super dense fog.

    Our city keeps on going even if we get 20 inches of snow in one day. That's nothing for us.
    Sometimes we don't even see a plow.
    I guess we are used to the snow, wind, ice and etc.
    Very seldom anything shuts down here.
    We live by Lake Erie too.

    I'm in upstate NY and we just got the wind. No new snow to speak of, and there wasn't much before. I can still see my grass.

    I'm sure it will show up eventually.
