Yep its official. Snow squalls and bands have made for a very hazardous drive here. It is so cold that the 1/4" we have here in Meriden is an icy glaze. Highways are a mess, Hills are HORRIBLE. Bill (ProSno) just called and said that in Wallingford (the next town over) they have 1.5" and he got to drop the blade at a few accounts. No where is sanded.


What did you guys get around here?????

Heres a couple of pics of me testing out my Stihl with the powerbroom attachment this morning.


It worked great. This was the perfect little shot of snow to test it out on.

I just got in from work. I work in Boston and live about 15mi. south. Nothing around here but coming out of town was a mess and it is even worse north. Saw a couple of spinouts and passed 3 sanders stuck in traffic going north, while southbound was a sheet of ice.

Got about 1/4 inch. Had to fire up the salt truck and hit the roads and parking lots for the first time this year. State must have got caught. Accidents everywere and traffic backed up real bad.

Hey Jay, Don't fool with us now. We see that garden hose laying on the patio to make ice.:jk

People are driving like total idiots. The highways are all shut down or at a stand still right around me here. There was just a report of a Jacknife tractor trailer right on 91 near the Meriden exit.

I just got back from the first run of the year. The lake effect machine has started again. They are calling for another 3-6 by midnight, but at last check of the radar, it looks to be slowing down for the time being.

If im not mistaken 1" of Rain is the water equivalent to 20" of dry fluffy snow so 1/4" of rain would be 5" of fluffy dry snow.
