LOL I just started my car and drove it out of the snow then cleaned and put it back. We ended up with a good 12-14inches.

We got about 13" here. The plow guy didnt show up and I had to shovel the whole thing. This is a driveway that is probably...350ft or more with a large parking area by the garage. I could've killed the ******* guy lastnight I was so mad!

He came about 1 hour after I had finished and was already changed and drinking a coffee watching tv. I was debating going outside to talk ****, but I knew it wouldn't be good. lol

Luckily I dont pay him, otherwise it would be a different story. The people we rent from go to FL for 6 months out of the year and this is their plow guy. So we get to chill out on 7 acres of nice property, but have to upkeep it when the "help" doesn't show up.

That sucks we have a drive way just 30 feet under a 1/4 mile. The plow guy we have ended up getting stuck in the front lawn trying to turn around and took out a bush and a jap maple tree. So that was the last time they are coming again.

6:30 am. rt 99 was plowed, rt 9 WAS NOT. in fact the on ramp in cromwell (about .5 miles long) was not plowed once. I had to "plow" thru 12" of snow just to get on rt 9!!!

MINI + Snow Tires = epic

Where the **** were you going that you had to get on rt9?! I'm not going ****** anywhere for a while......just spent the past 3 hours shoveling, now I'm headed to wrap up the miata repairs. I can't believe how much we've gotten, probably a solid 20" in Meriden right about now...there's probably more in other parts of the state though!
