It was snowing since yesterday and it was bitterly cold last night. But, as far as I can tell we didn’t get much, if any, howling winds. It was still snowing lightly when I woke up around 8:30 am this morning. Deanna and Teischan informed me that there was a LOT of snow. That we had expected. I watched CNN and CNBC while having my coffee. Things seemed dire in Boston, but we also knew that this was a southern and coastal storm. I had predicted, given our 660′ elevation, that we would get 14″. I was wrong. We got 7″ from what the tape measure said.

Did YOU know that this storm has a name? I learnt it from the U.K. press! Hercules

Yes, we had 19″ (or more) where the plow had pushed aside snow. Plus there was some drifting by the garage doors.

We, Devanee, Deanna & I, shoveled and pushed snow
for just over an hour.

That is all it took. We cleared a path for the SUV and I shoveled the mailbox out,
with a generous drive-in area for the postman. That is my trademark. Well shoveled mailbox.

So, it wasn’t bad. There was NO WIND. Calm. Nothing was stirring.
So, we are happy. Could have been much worse.
