Queens is just too confusing! I would have dates there once in a while over there and never made it cuz I couldnt find the damn address! Brooklyn is easy. Its a grid with letters and numbers. Bring on the snow!

OK, so the rig was surrounded by 3.5 foot snow drifts on all sides and I shit you not the tires didn't even spin getting out of the spot. The Jeep with her duelers cut through the snow like nothing. Very happy with her.

As a side note, a new x5 was parked in front of me and tried getting out at the same time and I had to break out the collapsible shovel give assistance.

I feel for you guys in MD and DC. Its gonna be a total shit show down there!!

Not the best here in Maryland. 16" so far, with a total of 30" expected. Even with Blizzaks on my Overland, I don't think that I'm going anywhere, anytime soon.

Unless I see pictures I don't even believe it snowed there.

Re: Snow day

This was the half-way point...I'm guessing we'll have at least 24" before things are done. I did a mid-storm plow-out to make it easier tomorrow morning as my Kubota isn't a big, hefty farm tractor. (I care for about 400' of driveway)

Re: Snow day

32 inches so far and they are projecting another 3 over next few hours, crazy. This region cant handle 3 or 4 inches so imagine the Armageddon with near 3 feet. Jeep has done well, snow mode and off road level 1 and it did well. The number of plows that have been stuck on the road is ridiculous, the big mega dump truck plows not the little ones.

Re: Snow day

Time for hot brandy and lemon, a comfortable recliner, a fire in the fireplace and just sit back and watch it.

I'm glad it missed us.
