Just be careful not to hit anything, they don't shear and you will tongue the crap out of it. But shear bolts are like 50 cents 

Yeah, they shear for a reason.

All my measurements averaged out to an even 20", and I came in to look at the NWS snow totals page. 20" for Woonsocket.

So 20" it is. Still snowing somewhat, but bfd. I can't remember ever getting 20" in such a short duration. The bulk of it came between sunup and sundown. 

put some in the freezer for cory

It doesn't show well on radar due to beam blockage, but it's just puking snow outside. I can see us making it to 20".

I really don't care how either of you spin it...the forecast was horrible and the snow worse...its mid march in the valley and it flurries/scattered snow showers all day on warm ground etc etc

I cleared once...have 4 total and 3.2 otg and it feels cheap reporting 4

it is still half or less of what was forecast for the entire valley

I lived in Amherst and Northampton for a number of years. Truly the "happy valley", but we always seemed to get into the screw zone between the big hits east of us and/or west of us. A natural sinkhole for snowfall. Born here in Worcester and spent most of my years here. Rarely got screwed here unless it was a scraper/south of the pike deal or a rainer (like the first in this train of three). We almost always do well, even when we aren't the jackpot. A notable exception was the "Boxing Day" storm. The airport officially measured about a foot; here on the east side it was more like six inches of dust. I remember watching the bands to the left, bands to the right while we sat in the snow hole all night. 

I feel for the valley snow lovers; not as bad as CC for annual totals, but a lot of nickle and diming to get there.

snow picking up again, what a crazy storm, if you got the band over you it was a great storm, if not I guess it sucked. I should end up at 20" with this remaining stuff.

Lol I just looked and yep IR outdoor  Cam

Just shoveled the front walkway and measured 18 inches.  That area is not subject to drifting like the driveway, so an accurate figure.  Could have lost an inch due to compaction since it wasn't measured during the storm.  Also, there is a band about to come through with another one now flaring up further west, so could add another 1 or 2 inches to that.

I  made two measurements today on a cleared picnic table to come up with my 6" but only have 4.5" otg.  Anybody measuring on pavement or waiting all day is probably under reporting what they got in the valley. 

yeah, that's what I was thinking when I saw the 2.5" amounts.  They just seem low.

How much so far? Aborn has 13” in Staffordville . You the same?

I measured 10.2" a couple of hours ago.  That 13" seems high but technically he is a little further east than I am and that band was so close it's possible.

Looks like a couple more inches since then and it's snowing nicely.  I wonder how much we'll pick up overnight....

Low-level almost under the beam snows out here now. The stuff accumulates decently despite 3/4SM vis.

Maybe Ray and Greg have lost power but pretty sure we got the 30" mark in these parts if not well over 2' crazy!

No doubt in my mind we reached 30".  Zero. 

And it ain't done yet.

but the cape will periodically see epic events, the cape will see single storm rates and depths those in the valley only dream of.....i feel a smidge bad for the capers today though missing big snows and loosing power....must suck
