Here in Cross Lanes West Virginia we have 13" of snow, with another couple of inches expected on Saturday. Time for a game of "The Ardennes Offensive"?

I love West Virginia...very good people!...but 13" of snow? In Wisconsin that would be called a disappointment.

I awoke to the sound of snowblowers...in quadraphonic stereo.

If I wait long enough one of them will magically clear my sidewalk and car.

Here outside DC I'm showing at least 19" with more coming down. Of course the wind makes it a little rougher in shoveling the snow.

My die roll modifier for shoveling snow is -1 for drifting and -2 for fatigue.

And I'm desperately researching 'Snow Blower I' tech.

We're probably somewhere in the 18-22" range in western NJ. Tough to tell from the way the winds are blowing.

Snowblower 1.1 is waiting in the wings for an opportunity to take a shot at this. Probably tomorrow morning.

I was pretty disappointed actually. We had a REAL blizzard back in 1978 (I think) in Indianapolis. It snowed for three days, drifts were up to the 2nd story of houses, cars completely covered. The city was officially "Closed" as they tried to mobilize every kind of equipment to clear the streets. All stores were closed for at least 2 days, and then the 4 Wheel Drive clubs mobilized to carry milk and bread out to the stores from the dairies and bakeries. We had to walk for blocks to get a loaf of bread from a small store (rationed). The snow was close to 40 inches, but then three more storms rolled in and eventually it was up to 5 feet. It was unbelievable.

A month later it melted and the ground turned into mush... sidewalks actually sank into the mud... my truck was up to the top of the tires (took two tow trucks to pull me out... one for the tow truck that got mired and then another truck to pull us both out

Really the most incredible experience ever... and it got us totally by surprise... all buildings were closed around 1 pm as the storm hit us... no one could get to the stores to buy supplies... the vehicles took hours to get home as the snow accumulated to a foot.

So... I'm not impressed by the East Coast!

Yep, I remember the blizzard of '78, although I was only 12 at the time. It was quite the experience and I forget exactly but I think we had 2 weeks off school because of it. I do remember we could not get out of our house easily because the snow was up to the top of the door. And being out in the country (in southern Michigan LP), we couldn't walk to a store, but nice folks came by on snowmobiles and took our shopping lists, then bought food for us!

Not to knock the snowfall on the east coast this past week, but we've not had a blizzard anywhere near '78 since.
