How much snow today?

I dont know about other parts of the country, but the northeast has been hit fairly hard. I am lookin *** a good 9-10" of snow in my yard. Streets are not plowed, people are riding around with snowmobiles
How about you?

hmmm we prob got a good 6-9 inches. Its kind of annoying because its all powder and its pretty windy, so when I was snow blowing I had to blow it in the right direction or else it would just fly back in my face.

The happy side of this is that I made me 25$

I'd say we got about a 10 to 12", tv said that areas around NJ and NY have gotten upwards of 24", but I guess I'm closer to the coast which means less then inland...

Tough to tell here. It was a light snow and we've had some drifting. I'm guessing somewhere around 18 to 20 inches.

Anybody else get a ride today? I went around my neighborhood several times, on and off road. Since the snow is so light, its not been a problem.

Malden, MA got near 14 inches and we're still going. Hopefully, it's make it into the night so there may be a slim chance of no escuela manana.

I graduated from Rutgers also, Class of '86.

If you want to come back to Jersey, you'll need a lot of money. I live in a fairly crappy part of Bergen County, and the average house price is around $425K. A house in a decent town will go for $600K minimum.

Upstate NY, we got nothing. The sun was out most of the day. Cold, around 20 F for a high, but no snow at all.
