Nobody's even bothering to do the sidewalks. You can't even figure out where they are.

My snowblower intake is 27" tall, FWIW.

@iacas, I can how anyone could be grumpy after this:  I would be!

Yes, it's been snowing for the past two hours.

But my snowblower, that I thought had blown an auger belt, was fine - I just had to undo the spring, tighten the screw about six turns, and re-do the spring. When they replaced the belt last spring they had the handle drive bar extended so it was very close to the on/off state.

We'd heard that some people's furnace vents were blocked by snow and they were getting carbon monoxide poisoning. I checked those on our house and we're good there.

And the TV (DirecTV) still works, despite the dish having a solid foot of snow on it.

Curious, how much snow before you start worrying about the roof?

The snow before was pretty heavy. This snow is pretty light.

It was windy the other day, so I'm not too worried. Our roofs are pretty steep in this area of the country.

That's smart. Are CO2 detectors required in basement or near heater?

Our smoke detectors have CO detectors on them.

CO2… that detector would be going off constantly, man. :-)

That's more snow than has fallen in Albuquerque in my entire lifetime, 46 years combined. 

 

On a different note I have a tee time for 9:00am tomorrow, supposed to be another beautiful day here in NM!

@iacas saw the snow in Erie story on the news and thought about you. I've been through storms with 20", and I've been in the UP and driven when there were plow canyons for roads. But I can't imagine getting all that in a couple of days.
Let us know if you need us to send in supplies - although it might have to be airdropped in.
Your photos are pretty amazing, as it looks like the roads were plowed - are they able to keep up with 4+ foot of snow?

And I'm sending bad vibes to @dennyjones for his cold comments - I don't mind cold and snow, but this below zero stuff is a bit chilly. At least I haven't heard them calling it an Artic Blast, like the 2014 and 2015 winters.

Stay warm everyone & we can watch golf starting next week!

    • Day 53: Did some yardstick putting practice indoors, and some rehearsal/swing mapping with a PW, also indoors.  
    • Day 207.  If you think I hit some 6-iron shots today, you're right!  But I also spent 30 minutes putting on a real green by taking a break to do so;  I didn't do drills, and I mostly hit from 3-12' ; the shorter ones I focused on doing my best to make it, the longer ones I wanted to get close enough to have a chance but, if I missed, to miss them long with a short return putt.  I also spent ten minutes hitting half shots with my 54 degree (indoors, off a mat, real balls). 
    • Mostly firstname lastname.  No titles;  if I did, somewhere between a third and a half of my active contacts would have the prefix Dr. and that would just be confusing.  A few are in there as pseudonyms;  even though no one goes through my phone, it's just in case as I don't think they'd want their personal number getting released through my carelessness.   A few are missing last names, usually if I don't know that information about them for some reason, and a few have reminders if I only sort of know them or if there are two or more people I know with the same first-name last-name combination.   Scrolling through the contact list, I have a ton of people I haven't had any communication with, phone or otherwise, in over a decade.   The only time I have ever known how I'm stored in someone else's phone was back in college when I, at some point, found out that my then-girlfriend had me stored in her phone as "Bozo." 
    • I'm playing Lake St. Clair Metropark (Par-3) again this Saturday. 🙂
    • Mostly First and Last Name. If it's someone I want to remember associated with a business it might be like Jay (Henderson Construction).
