We only got around 2 feet. But we got hit 5 days ago which was over your ankle. This storm was a dual storm.

That took me 3 hours to do all of that. And it was not easy. Took many breaks and was pretty sore.


Day #2:
Grader still never came up my road. My driveway is usually big enough for two or three cars and a turn-around spot. Took some pictures this morning...

Whole driveway was 2' or more...


Trucks scrape on the road. Last night i seen a truck pushing the snow with its bumper (we're talking a 2014 4x4 Chevy Silverado)


You can see how the snow simply went right across from left to right. Had to dig all this out...


BUT DON'T WORRY, SPRING STARTS TOMORROW!

Damn, that's a lot of snow. Are you expected to show up for work on days like this?

Hell no! I physically cannot drive on my road, I would get stuck in the car. I just watched a 4x4 truck get stuck on it. But I am done shoveling, until the grader comes.

Just two days ago I use to park a 2nd car right in front of my front door there.




No plow yet. 4x4 trucks scraping on the bottom, making paths.


A dirt road near my driveway with 10+ houses on it. A 4x4 truck with a plow on it tried to plow this last night and he got stuck. Now they wait...

What's crazy about this photo is that in front of my house is just flat ground. A front yard from the house to the road, some gravel, but all level. And I don't have a snow blower, yet the snow everywhere is this high in my area. They say we got 31" after we got 15" the day before, which was after other storms. And a storm coming tomorrow but they are not sure if it will be 15" of rain or snow.




Oh.... and that dirt road no-one could plow. The grader took care of it. Took him serveral tries. Was hypnotizing to watch him drive up the road sideways while shifting between 1st and 2nd as the turbo spooled.

Man that's quite the dumping you had.....

So far we have seen 446cm (14.5 feet) of snow in less than 3 months. We usually get a bit of a thaw late Jan, early Feb but we had nothing but storm after storm this year. So glad I have a snow blower, no way I could have survived shoveling all that snow!

Here's to surviving another Maritime Winter.....Cheers!

Now lets see what Spring has to throw at us...... probably another 100-200cm....lol

I keep forgetting you live on the east coast. Ya, I think a snow blower is going to be needed if next year is going to be like this!

Well as i say...... on with the show.

I got these LED lights that plug in to the back of the gauge cluster and just fit in to the OEM socket. They have LEDs on each side. Should work out great!





Only one bulb in...

Did you pick up those LED's local? This is a great idea and wouldn't mind picking up a set.

Thanks. And got the plug and play LEDs on ebay. It took A LOT of research to determine what to get! The little ones need to be modified to fit in the small holes of the cluster. I"ll send you the link if you want just let me know.
