    These are NOT storms, It's just snowing!

    A "Storm" lasts three days, You can't see out the windows for two, and the snow goes SIDEWAYS all the time. and you leave the house when it's done. through an upstairs window!

    Jeesh, You would think no one has ever wintered in the Dakotas!

    Exactly! You can claim blizzard-like conditions when it's coming down like crazy and the 30 mph winds. But it ain't a true blizzard unless it's 3 days long. Look it up; that's a true definition!

    Was that one year, or two?

    I always thought that a blizzard was longer in duration too, but they kept citing the three hour minimum on the news throughout this last blizzard. Here is the actual definition: "A blizzard is a severe snowstorm characterized by strong sustained winds of at least 56 km/h (35 mph) and lasting for a prolonged period of time — typically three hours or more. A severe blizzard has winds over 72 km/h (45 mph), near zero visibility, and temperatures of −12 °C (10 °F) or lower. Technically, the difference between a blizzard and a snowstorm is not the amount of snow but the strength of the wind."

    You actually looked it up!

    Must have been a dictionary written out east though. No self respecting NoDakian would accept such a wimpy time frame.

    Might say it's blizzard like conditions, but calling it a blizzard would seemed to be stretching things abit.

    Got about 26" here in south central CT. Worst storm I've seen in a lot of years. Many reports of 30" - 40" not far from here. Supposedly, Hamden CT was the big winner with 40". We had thunder snow about 8:00 Friday night. Sleet mixed in for an hour or so, so I think that's why the totals ended up below 30". Still a _____ load of snow to deal with.

    Got caught with my pants down too. Don't know what I was thinking, but I had the plow on the tractor parked in the garage facing out. Went out Friday about 5:30 and cleared about 6" from my drive and two other neighbors. Come Saturday morning, I couldn't plow out my own drive. Keep getting stuck - just too much snow to push and really no where to push it. Me and the wife, bless here heart, shoveled about 120' out to the shed so I could put the front loader on. That took maybe two hours

    There was at least 5' wide bank of snow from where the town plowed the road to our mailbox, and about 4' high. Spent 6 hours out Saturday and another 6 on Sunday. I ended up doing the drives of three single lady neighbors. One of them had a plow come on Sunday, but his GM 2500 HD diesel couldn't back up her driveway, so she called me for help. Went to her house thinking she needed me to dig out the plow with my loader, but the guy wanted a tow. My little BX had enough pull to get him moving and unstuck, but it was a case of rinse, repeat. After he got stuck for about the 6th time, we agreed I'd finish her drive with the loader. I think that was actually less wear and tare on my BX than pulling him out of the piles he was making.

    I'm seriously thinking of selling my front plow and getting a three point blower for next year. I'm sure there's no chance of finding one locally now. Just too slow moving this much snow with a loader, and you still run out of room eventually. I really need the loader on in the winter anyway since i need to move firewood to the house now that we have a wood stove (loving that stove by the way - haven't seen the oil man since last summer )

    Anyway, here's a few pic's after I cleared my drive. Pic's just don't relate the fully story though.
