    I don't know how much snow we got here west of Boston, but it was a lot!

    Our driveway was plowed twice during the storm, and here are the kids venturing out from the garage onto the driveway this AM:

    They made it to about the edge of the driveway before taking a rest :)

    I know hundreds of thousands of people in MA are without power. Hope all of our members are safe!

    Our midwest "big one" is coming today and tomorrow, but here's a teaser from my first evening shoot with the X-E1. It was really starting to come down (er, sideways) heavy:

    We got only three-to-six inches of snow at my listening post in Central New Jeraey - far less than expected. Perhaps the fates decided we deserved a break after Sandy. Eastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine were supposed to get up to two feet. I hope all of our friends in the region are okay. It looks like at least a foot at your house, Amin. A great way to break in the X-E1.

    We got about an inch down here, MAYBE an inch. So no pics. The most snow I've ever seen from one dump was a 30 inch storm we had several years back - took weeks to dig out the urban areas and all the snow they were dumping in the Schuylkill River started causing ice dams and flooding. Sounds like most of New England got very close to that and some spots will end up with more than three feet! That's a LOT. Good you have someone to plow your drive Amin. We live in a condo now and have others so it for us also, but up until a few years ago I had to dig out of these things with a shovel.

    Hope you Yanks are safe and sound. Stay warm by thinking of the sunny 72 degree weather here in Houston :)

    Great photos, Amin! Looks like a lot of digging out to do--we only have to deal with 10" in my part of NJ. My older son goest to Clark U in Worcester, and the i hear that city got the most snowfall in MA. Hopefully you still have power. Stay warm.

    I can't take pictures and post here yet because: (1) our door is blocked by snow (hopefully the snow plower comes soon!); and (2) I have no X camera yet. :) But yeah, this has to be one of the worst blizzards!

    I live close to Worcester and would estimate over 2 feet of snow here. Everyone is basically closed in without possibility of driving anywhere, but I'm lucky that we still have power, heat, hot water, and even TV/internet/phone.

    We had to do our own sidewalks when we got that much snow. Very cool indeed they did yours!

    I went to Michigan Tech and also lived in Ishpeming for a while - I remember these types of snows about every week or so! :eek: Luckily, municipalities had serious gear up there to take care of this stuff!

    I wasn't sure if they would and was very much relieved to see them come around. Not easy to shovel that much snow!
