    You know, when I busted my leg, I thought for sure that Ned was going to beat me, but then he got that lathe going and well.....

    Rennie, you beat me to it! I saw the news about the storm in the NE and thought the same thing....

    So Ned, does the snow stick to your metal roof or just slide right off?

    no more insulation done, and I didn't check on the roof since we didn't have any accumulation last night.

    I hope he does

    If this is a little incoherent I appologize I was running calls from 9pm until 330am and only have about 1 1/2 hours sleep and just got done running some more fire calls, mostly trees or wires down with a couple car accidents with not injuries.

    It started snowing around 4pm with the really wet snow. This caused problems with the trees as a lot still have some leaves and really weighted them down. It stopped snowing around 330 am and about 9 inches of the heavy stuff.

    As usual with Lake Ontario it turns into a Lake Effect Machine and it is currently dumping on us again, at least 4 plus inches so far since 530 am.

    To my north by about 12 miles is Redfield, it is on the Tug Hill and known for there snowfall totals. With the wet snow along at 530am they had 19 inches and counting. This is nothing for them though. If they get less then 300 inches of snow its a light winter.

    Here are some pics, for more see

    This road was barely passable with a pickup this am, by the time I got the pic a plow had gone thru and knocked some snow off the branches and they lifted some.

    Its an early start to winter and I am not looking forward to it.

    There is more snow over here in Amsterdam than I had this morning, and much less than Ralph had up north. Gotta love the Tug Hill, eh Ralph? it is just snowing 'enough' right now that I'm out collecting data and not shooting today, for the second day in a row. oh well...

    On the plus side, my new supervisor is pretty cool and the job is looking up again. (been a little lean for a couple of months, so that's part of why the no insulation)

    Snow?? I think we had some a few years ago?

    Hey Ned - got that insulation in yet?

    I know of what you speak. (Why do you think I live where I do?) I got tired of plowing that white stuff around. I wore out 2 trucks pushing snow.

    Ned, Don't feel too bad. I never did get my old shop back home insulated good. Only had a layer of Insulboard and CDX plywood outside that. Worked for me and that was located right on the south shore of Lake Erie.

    I remember being up in Copenhagen and Watertown. They get some snow up there. Like Oswego.

    That was 20 years ago.

    found a little more insulation money today. Going to pull a bunch of stuff back from the walls tomorrow morning and then slap it and some plywood on the long 'front' wall towards the house. (the back wall will have to wait for another pay period or two)
