Nice little travel ban here from 3PM onwards, no one going anywhere.. We are within walking distance of a dozen or so quite decent restaurants all of which will be closed tonight.

and one can hear the cracking noise, as the moisture freezes in mid air .

and they don't put anti-freeze in the cars,

as they don't leave them outdoors when not running .

60cm of snow here in 12hrs or less, no power for 24hrs, when power was restored last night it was a balmy -12C (10F)

Rewired our gas fired steam boiler to run off of one of my UPS, run time was about an hour, and this was just enough with our gas stove to keep the house at roughly 14 - 15 degrees C..

I'll post some pictures later..

Tomorrow they're saying rain.. I'm sure that will make things quite treacherous.

Nice to see others having more snow than what we have experienced this year.
Looks like that house in Russia could use some new thermal pane windows!! :-)
Would like to now they heat that house? Wood or oil, one way or the other, lots of $ or lots of work.

Another big snow storm last night, ruined my usual Thursday evening out with friends.. (roller skating, dinner, and chat about everything from tube audio to roller skating moves.. lol) Home from work today due to the largely impassible condition of local roads.

Wow, quite the winter this year, for you folks on the east coast. All we got in Greater Toronto area is a dusting of snow last night. One good thing is that it is Friday!!
Roller Skating, that brings back some memories.
