Did anyone else get hit by this Nor'easter?

We got 6+ inches already, almost no plows out and it been snowing a while, supposed to get like 4-8" more tonight.

I drove around 60 miles in the Rover, helped a few people, and pulled some out, certainly more fun than class.

Yep, got it here in Fairfield (big surprise to a guy from Redding, I'm sure). At least we have power back. A friend in mid-LI said wind is much stronger down there and they have lost power.

We got a few inches here. Dog almost pulled me down a few times. Then went into the army surplus store to try to buy some boots for snow and mud for this winter's Rover events since the ones I was wearing tonight weren't cutting it, but they only had desert boots.

Tomorrow will mark 11 days without power for me...so if you count that this latest storm has slowed the power recovery from Sandy...then yes.

But quite honestly, I am not complaining. Others got hit much worse and I have a generator with plenty of gas in reserve.

Got power back just 24 hours ago, and now new trees and branches down here in Queens, aaaaand ... the power and heat is gone again. Would've been easier to take in a way if it had never come back at all. Our street blocked again by a newly fallen tree.

Got a few inches here on the jersey shore. Certainly slowed down power crews. I don't have power yet but was getting sick of the generator. Got some 10/4, and hooked into my neighbors panel who has had power for 3 days no (figure that out). Much better and no need to worry about turning the gen on and off. Plus it's free electric lol

The weathermen screwed the pooch on the amount of snow in the tristate area. We got about 5 inches or so.
