Wish it would stop raining... my lawn is 10 feet above the road and its a swamp... basement has a stream running to my sump pit... I moved from Pittsburgh to get away from the rain! Even my garage has about a 1/4 inch of water over the whole floor right now.... Those who have been there know that that is crazy!

I hear ya. My yard was under yesterday morning, but the 30 mph wind that hasn't stopped since yesterday afternoon has blown it all away. I'm making sure my garage is at least 6" above the level of the alley behind my house, which should put it a good 1-1/2 feet above my yard which floods al lthe time.

I though you would have known about all the rain the Shore gets! Why you think it's so green all the time around there?? You guys actually get a little bay effect over there. All the the heat from Baltimore like to bloom up, draw up the water from the bay and then dump it all on Kent County.
ya.

I'll bitch for all the folks from south texas round to south fla up lower north carolina to arkansas that are getting all the rain to refill the extremely low aquifers and watersheds from the last 5 yrs in the last 2 months!

We've had 5" this week and are getting 3-4 more today. Bug and bay are in the garage, he took the truck to work. Several creeks here haven't even crested from rain a few days ago.
Guess it's a good thing schools are out starting today, or they wouldve been called today due to bad back roads. Clay and 3ft deep side ditches are nothing to mess with !
I expect ice storms in jan/feb.
oh fun~
think I need to ask santa for a pr of oars for the boat.

11" and counting at 12:13pm. Latest weather reports say it's really not supposed to really start snowing until 4-5:00 and continue through late sunday morning. I shoveled the sidewalks about 45 minutes ago and they already have 2" on them already.

STUPID WEATHER!!!

I just got done using the snowblower and shoveling the neighbors driveway and mine! We got over 12" of snow. Its the light fluffy snow but it got wet/slushy layer right next to the ground/driveway. Its beautiful but boy what a pain in the ass! At least its not blowing around yet.

Yesterday I still meet up with GMJunky (Joel). We both had a hell of a time getting to and from but I think it was worth it.

Now its time to bake cookies!

well, we ended up with about 22 inches where it hasn't drifted up to 3-4 feet as it has in most of my back yard. Pretty much what Scott had, mostly light stuff on top, but about 3-4" of wet stuff on the bottom. Just finished shovelling the sidewalks, but that's about 75 feet of a 50" sidewalk and about the same of a 36" walk, so it took me about 1 1/2 hours. Thankfully the state plows my street to the curbs. It's pretty much been clear all throughout the storm. Thanks to the hospital half a block away, we had a gang of plows coming through almost hourly, so all's I had to do was dig out the end of my sidewalk.

I'm definitely swapping the 6.5hp from my go kart into the old snow blower I have.

Well my cul-de-sac just got plowed out . I think we were the last one in the neighbor hood to get cleared out. Nothing like seeing a big JD loader with a 10' wing blade clearing the streets.
Had a total of 20" hit the ground. Like everyone else, the first couple of inches was wet.
