That's just terrible Bear there's been 58 deaths attributed to this storm, the one the weather channel calls Jonas.
I have to be careful, when my fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy start acting up while I'm blown' snow, my upper torso goes into spasms and I have to back away from the blower for a minute or so until it calms down, once it starts I have to stop more frequently.
No not my displeasure, more like a surprise that you have such displeasure towards snow.
Hmm...That's not how your first post came across to me.
In my younger days I used to be out in it a lot, sledding, tobogganing, skiing, snowball fights, building igloos, cleaning up for my parents, my pants were always frozen when I came back in; I remember one snow when I was in high school, a buddy and I went to a mall parking lot late at night and spun doughnuts for a few hours, we burned up a tank of gas and a case of beer, those are all good memories, but in my mid 20's I matured, settled down, got married, and held one job for 31years until I retired.
I kind of enjoyed watching this storm but I had it in the back of my mind that if the power went out I would have to start the procedure to switch over to our generator and when it stopped I had to go out and do the digging out. Not much fun when you have to take prescription muscle relaxers and pain killers to calm the neck spasm that feels like it's gonna rip your ears out of your head.
You may tire of hearing this, but you're still a young man and believe your invincible, but come back in 20years or so and let me know how you feel then.
There is an old sayin'; You don't have to shovel rain.
Diosoth count yourself lucky I saw one report
that had 17 inches in Graysville, in southeast Ohio, about 80 miles southwest of Pittsburgh that's about 180miles? as the crow flies East of you.
It helped that the storm hit over the weekend but businesses and government were shut down till Tuesday and some schools till Wednesday other schools had 2 or 3hour delays till Friday. The link below has an expandable map that has Cincinnati in the less than >4" area but South of you 4 to 10 in Kentucky.
That would be 3 and a 1/3 times the size of Finland in area, and 18 and 3/4 times the population affected.
