    What the heck is that creature in picture 3 doing? It appears to have some sort of weapon in it's hands and beating the snow with it.

    It's kind of funny to me watching a storm like this unfold in such a populated area. People seem to freak out for some reason.

    While we get out share of storms and heavy snowfall, I must say that I was impressed with the Massachusetts people when I was running mail up there. They took the big storms in stride for the most part.

    I guess people these days have to be on the go everyday for some reason - staying home for 24 hours while the storm does its thing is like a death sentence to these people.

    Get prepared, stay home, then clean up.

    Things will get cleaned up a lot faster if the plow trucks can do their job without all the obstacles of stuck/abandoned vehicles on the road. Plus the fact of endangering all the emergency services people.

    Taken from the cab of my highway plow truck back in 2002 -

    Watching the news this morning on TV with my oldest (12yo) and he asked me what all the fuss was about 24" of snow as we had been predicted to get 18"-24" last week. It's funny how he has always lived with our weather and large amounts of snow are just taken for granted. I equated the mid Atlantic storm to a hurricane and their infrequency and that drove the idea home. Indeed stay safe all of you!!!!!

    You folks are so lucky! I only get to use my tractor a couple times during the Winter to mulch/scalp my yard, and maybe another half dozen times for 15 minutes to haul wood from the creek to the house for the fireplace. You guys get to plow and blow snow all Winter. Although I didn't see any monument marked "North Pole", I assume you are assisting Santa to clear his drive and the walk to the Elves' quarters? What's with the horse? Where are the reindeer?

    I hate Winter. Anyone know of any fun things to do in the Cayman Islands?
    Have wings, will travel.
