    Luke,
    I live about four blocks from Phillies. I don't know if that café next to them is going to make it though unless there is a cash laundry in the back room. We were hoping Phillies would expand and have a nice restaurant there. We prefer Harbor Pizza.

    Here are some photos from our street, in Whitestone, Queens this morning. Watching it come down last night was quite a sight!

    When we woke up, this is what we saw...we had 3 feet on the terrace....really amazing



    The house from the front. You can't really tell that the drifts on the roof are overhanging at least a foot


    Our street

    i went out with my camera right before heading off to work:

    the front stairs and sidewalk in front of my house:




    the street i live on, plowed rather well:



    the street my garage is on, was untouched:



    and finally my exploder, she stayed outside so that some ******* wouldn't block my driveway and got a little burried. honestly i was hoping for more of a challenge but no such luck.

    After 27 straight hours of plowing, I have a couple hours of down time and then it's right back at it again tonight for cleanup & haul away.

    I love the winter!

    holy cow. its like in the movie. i got my shots in Blizzard 09 thread. My street was untouched as well. I left work early so i wouldnt have to go through as much snow but it completely backfired as i was unable to get home untill 2 in the morning because the southern state was closed

    And a week later I wake up to sunshine, temps heading to the Upper 40s and all that snow pretty
    much gone. Thank goodness that the temps were above freezing yesterday with all that rain we
    got. As they say "If that rain was snow......"
    A cold spell is heading in after today and maybe (just maybe now) a New Years Day snow "event".

    This weekend's storm is still up in the air. Weather.com says rain, NOAA.gov says snow, local news says snow from Thur to Sunday, Accu weather says rain. I'll just stick my head out the window this weekend and see what the weather is. lol
