Happy 5th Anniversary Blizz of Feb 13

Came in for the day shift Saturday morning (8 AM) to heavy OES already occurring. Evening shift called in sick, so I pulled a double until midnight. Got about 3 hours sleep down the road in Gray before waking up to be in by 4 AM for the next day shift. Finally came home for good at 6 PM, where snow was piled in the center of Commercial Street in Portland up to the second story. 

You saw the good stuff, both at work and at home.  We were north of the banding (11" here, 8.8" in Farmington), a nice garden-variety storm but the glow was dimmed by knowing that places less than an hour's drive south had over 2 feet.  We've met blizzard criteria only four times here since 1998, with wind the usual fail.

Pretty incredible evolution. That phase happened literally overhead with just mega forcing over us. 

I was really concerned that morning the best goods would be over RI or something but we cashed in.

This thread is definitely a keeper.

This is what we get when there's no foreseeable activity out there...guys sitting around the fire, drinking cans of warm bud-light and cheap whiskey, re-living the good ole' days.

Absolutely awful mid-month situation.   Just waiting for the 24-36 hours of rain to move into the area over the weekend.
