Nemo brought us nearly 2 feet of snow

Nemo, the Blizzard of 2013 brought us a little snow here in the hills of Southbury, CT. By the end of the storm, we ended up with nearly 2 feet of snow. Brody and Maya had a ball playing in the snow today, me I got to spend the day clearing the driveway, parts of the deck on the house as well as the roof of the motorhome.

Brody says "I know there is a bird hiding in there!"


Maya finally found "one" of her sticks!


There was way too much snow for hand clearing, and as our driveway is uphill and the snow was relatively heavy, it wasn’t a job for a snow plow either. Luckily we have a great neighbor – Ben Platt. He runs a 180 acre dairy farm and has lots of cool machinery – including an 8 foot snowthrower that attaches to one of his big tractors. This is the way to clear snow!

The top of the motorhome had more than a foot of snow on it, and I really wanted to get it cleared off before it started the melt/freeze/melt/freeze cycle. I started clearing off the roof of the motorhome with a roof rake, but with all the obstructions (vent pipes, a/c units, vents, etc) that was not an easy task so I climbed up on top – with a healthy dose of fear and respect for a slippery roof.

Almost two feet? My brother lives in Central Mass. and he got 27 inches.

Doesn't matter, two feet, or two inches, eve a quarter of an inch - to much for me.

I lived in Central Mass for the first 18 years of my life and it was an accident of birth.

Yeah depending on where I measured, we got between 20" - 26", so some of that was wind driven. Some of the snow drifts are well over 3 feet!

I've been messaging back and forth with relatives, former neighbors and former co-workers all day and I am not ashamed to say that I am happy that we no longer live up there.

You guys over there a re little whimpy, making such a big deal of a mere 25 - 30 inches of snow!

We over here in Minnesnowta have this stuff as an every year event, sometimes several times a year.

I can't fathom it, but I'm a native Floridian. We're in shorts, T-shirts, and sandals in central FL. It's very nice down here.

I'll be thinking of you up here in Central Mass. come summertime when I hear that Texas is in yet another oppressive heat spell that lasts for weeks at a time. I'll take the occasional snowstorm thank you.
