Monster Keeper Striped Bass Blitzes - 2/9/13

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
It's probably going on right now along the entire CT and RI shoreline, but unfortunately, my vehicle is immobile smile.gif I've been shoveling since 10am, taking a break to eat, then back out. Hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe. Lift with your legs!

Dug out with the help of my trusty blower. Now I'm just waiting for the town to clear the street

Found my cars but still no plows on my little itty bitty street. I had to walk 1/2 a mile balls deep in it to get picked up for a party Woot!!! Looking forward to walking back tonite...

This is the jeep that does the plowing, alternator crapped out at 1 am, stuck in the driveway.



My son plowed with the ATV last night where he is now shoveling the next morning.



36" at the house, most snow I've ever seen in 1 storm. I was driving around in the blizzard of 1978 and this was worse.

33" inches in Guilford. There's a layer of concrete in the middle of this stuff. Burned up the auger belt in my blower. mad.gif

Doin it the old fashioned way and trying to get some of the snow load off the roof without making a gravity check.

Well I can attest that gravity still works! I was clearing snow off of our roof with the wife and lost traction while sitting on the roof shoveling and sure enough gravity took over and I found myself quickly embedded into a large snow mound at the bottom of the roof next to the house. Thankfully it was only about a 10-12 ft. fall and I basically laughed it off with the wife. But it could have been a lot worse and I stayed off the roof after that little fiasco. Got a snow rake from the neighbors after snowblowing them out and finished the roof with the rake and a ladder. Just an amazing amount of snow for this area and they are talking more snow for Thursday and possibly another monster storm for the weekend. Man I hope they are wrong.

Avalanche has earned it's name...........I cleared the drivers door and drove it out onto the cleared driveway.

Two days ago at the dinner table I said to my son "you know what you need"? His instant reply was "a snowblower". Yep, I said. Then he said "I need a front deck more than a snowblower". I then said "I'm trapped in, I can't get out of the house". Tomorrow when the shipment of snowblowers arrives at Ganos a Toro 928OE has our name on it.

Nice pics guys. CRAZY SNOW AMOUNTS for CT. Want to see some really wild videos search YouTube for time “lapse blizzard”. Very cool

I must say my little town of Middlebury has by far the best snow removal in the state. I live on a dead end. Last flake hit the ground and my street was cleared. They came back by Monday with bucket loaders and took all the snow away. Even cleaned the front of my driveway. Hats off to the town workers and helpers. I’m def writing a letter Thanking them.

On the opposite side of that equation we have Bpt. Tried to get to my mother in laws Monday to dig her out. Joke. This is her place.

First things I clear are my boat and hot tub.
