This is the most snow we have had with one storm in a LOG TIME! Definitely over 2 feet (24 inches).

But, we prevailed. Devanee did a fair amount of shovelling to get HER car out. This morning was my 4th go around. Teischan helps. Her main goal is to keep her trampoline clear and in this storm she had to shovel the trampoline three times!

But, we took some time off.

March 2018 Winter Storm “Skylar” Dumped Over 2′ (Yes, 2 Feet) Of Snow!

Third snow storm, third Nor’Easter at that (in that the wind/snow is coming from the NE), in as many weeks. This, by far, the most spectacular and SEVERE.

Quinn” last week gave us 9″. That was pretty easy to deal with.

Skylar” started off deceptively — though we had all heard the forecasts and kind of knew what to expect.

At 10:30am when I went out to shovel for the first time there wasn’t that much snow. Less than 4″.

Then it started coming down heavy.

We were out twice after that and have only made a DENT!

Luckily it is light, fluffy snow. BUT, LOTS of it.

Going to be spending a lot of time tomorrow clearing some of it. This one is going to take a few days to clear.

I will keep you posted. More pictures tomorrow.

We Prevailed Over The March 2018 Winter Storm “Mighty Quinn”.

Before and After




We got a foot of snow — BUT not too much wind and we did NOT lose power, though I had the three (3) generators lined up and read to go.

Lot of snow. But, we have seen worse.

Cleared all that we wanted to clear in just under an hour with three of us shoveling.

I did NOT clear the mailbox as yet. That can wait. Temperature is already above freezing and I am going let the Sun do some melting.

Yes, this too, in the end, was a Southern Storm — meaning folks South of us got the brunt of it.

Glad it is behind us.

I probably will be shoveling into the weekend.

But, we subdued the “Mighty Quinn“.

I had seen the above notice on the “National Park Service” Website before I had set off to Acadia.

We swung by “Sieur de Monts” on Saturday, March 3, 2018.

As you can see from my pictures it was NOT flooded. Lot of snow/ice and the ground was very soggy. But, the flooding was history. That, however, was before today’s latest Nor’easter, “Quinn“.

So, just giving you an update.
