About 3ft by my apartment, and at least 3 ft on the deck of my parents house. You can only see about a foot of the grill sticking out.

We got slaughtered here, just south of Boston. We have at least 20" and have had no power since 9:30 last night.
Just finished snow blowing the driveway

Hope you get your power back soon, Eddie.

We had a new 25kW back-up generator installed last Fall just for such an emergency.................and, of course,.......................we never lost power during the storm; not even for one second.........................

It's still snowing!!!!!

I have high hopes for the second generation. It's a stiff tailed big shrimp with the tail overhanging the hook eye. So it sails where it wants to when casting, but looks great when stripped.

I've got two sisters burried under snow in Mass, and do feel bad for you all as well as for your trees.

Good luck.

You guys in NE got hammered. Good luck ,hope you all get your power on soon, my suggestion ....clean the car off, clear the exhaust, so you can at least let the car idle and turn the heat on (some do not need electric for heat...so this doesn't apply to them). Take your time shoveling, don't overexert yourself, as PD, FD and EMS is / has been very busy and may not be able to help you fast enough.

I remembered very quickly today how much I hate shoveling, as we didn' t have a winter last year(the winter before last I think I shoveled more in that one winter than I have for all other winters combined). It didn't help I hurt my left shoulder at work almost 2 months ago. The physical therapy is just about done, maybe this shoveling was a good test to see if it's ready to go back to work.

We only had about 11", and after it stopped snowing the sun came out.

All things considered, this wasn't too bad.
We got a lot of snow, about 24", and lots of wind.
The big thing, though, is that there are very few power outages around me.
