Hah, Mang, if you want a thought to help keep you warm....just imagine how people in England would react to 3 feet of snow.
True! The UK usually grinds to a halt for an 1" of snow, let lone 3'. For me, the snow isn't really much of a problem. My early life was spent in Newfoundland, so huge snow drifts was business as usual. Hell, they didn't ever used to call it a 'storm', it was just 'snow'. It was never an 'if' only a 'when' and 'how many feet'.
Don't know what it's like in other states, but in Connecticut, just about anything that falls from the sky is called a 'storm' even if you get a few tiny flakes gently drifting to the ground. For me, storms imply violence so, if I don't see trees bending over or high-speed debris taking flight, it ain't a storm, it's just winter
We did have some gusts but nothing like what was promised, at least not where I am in the middle part of the state. The shore got hammered yet again.
My concern wasn't the snow so much as losing power or running out of oil (or both) because I didn't want the pipes to freeze. That would've been the death blow to our rather anemic finances, hence me seeking extra employment.
