How about this snow! I have to admit, I'd rather be at the Boardwalk, but, it sure is pretty outside!

How much snow did you get on LI? We're NorthWest of Boston, and got about 20 inches or so on the ground & it's still snowing lightly... another 3-8 predicted for today I guess.... I'd MUCH rather be at the BW!!!

03-06-2001, 05:43 AM
We are from western Mass. We only got about 14 to 16" but it is still snowing (it is about 9:00AM on Tuesday). I'd rather be at WDW.

Not a dam thing, only got about 2in. What a dissapointment. Snowing a little now, Tues., what a bust.

Be safe

Another Northwestern Mass. resident here (Chris, we must be neighbors!). We had about two feet, but the drifting is tremendous. We live at the top of a hill near a small mountain and the wind is pretty much constant. The summer breezes are always pleasant, but the winter typhoons can be a problem. I'd rather be at WL!!

We got about 10 inches in Avon CT, 2 towns west of Hartford. Darn pretty though, only 9 days to BWV for a 9 day DVC vacation. If the pool is closed for rehab, you'll here my scream all the back to New England :)

We're right on the border of Suffolk/Nassau. Just a few inches here. I wish we were further out. Had to send hubby off to work this am. Tried to convince the family that "Suffolk" got much heavier snow, so he should stay home...(We're only a block from the border.) Disneyhumbug-I was wondering how much Rocky Pt. got, my brother lives there. Maybe he's snowed in today too.

I'm in central Maine, I can't tell how much snow we have, there is so much blowing and drifting. They have closed up the whole state, which is extremely unusual as we are used to this kind of weather and bad driving. Who would want to live here anyway? Leaving for HH 4/16, I hope we are shoveled out by then, another possible nor'easter could be coming in this weekend. I am sick of snow!! I long for WDW and sun and palm trees. Any DVCers reading this from FL pls send a little sunshine this way.

I'm jealous of those of you in NY and MA.....that was supposed to be our snow down here in PA!

It stopped here about 8AM or so. We have about 26 to 27 inches. I went over to open the office up and the main roads are just wet. All the roads seem to be plowed now. My son is sick (vomited at 2AM)so I came back home so my wife could go to the office. It's only fair, it's her business ;) The state workers up here seem to be a little upset (talk radio) that they have to go to work.

2 feet of snow and a 4 ft. drift


03-06-2001, 10:21 AM
I'm in Staten Island, NY.

We only got about 1 inch over here. Reading the posts I see you Boston people got alot. Bad for you but lucky for us. I was told if it came up the coastline the way it was scheduled, we would have wound up with the 20 inches....

Wish I was at BWV too!... 2 more months.

south shore mass here,i got 11 hours of plowing in, bummer i expected 20-30 hours of plowing.was hoping for big check to put towards our dvc we are about to purchase. (vwl)more rain than snow. :D

03-06-2001, 11:45 AM
We have over 24" of snow here and it's still coming.

03-06-2001, 12:56 PM
Call me nuts, even insane...but I LOVE this weather. Light a nice fire, drink hot chocolate. I admit I love the sun (orig. from CA.)moved to New England 11 years ago and wouldn't think of leaving...well only when it snows in May (very rare). We are planning a sleigh ride this week and then we are going to A maple festival...I love New England.

03-06-2001, 01:33 PM
Hello from snowy Ohio. We are up to 6" and it is still snowing and blowing. Not to worry, 2-1/2 weeks to HH. :)

03-06-2001, 01:38 PM
Very disappointed...we only got rain. I love the snow! I was hoping for a Blizzard of 2001 (just like the Blizzard of '78), but instead just rain. Feel terrible for those people with housed right on the water--major flooding happening.

03-06-2001, 01:38 PM
I have to say that I love New England in the Fall. It is truly beautiful. I even love the snow although this is a bit much.

We're in Northwest Vermont. The original prediction for us was 1" to 3" total for this storm.

We currently have at least 24" on the ground and it's still coming...

We'll be at OKW in less than three short weeks and all will be well.


03-06-2001, 02:22 PM
I can't tell how much we have because of the wind.....all I want to know is when will it stop? And I hear we're in for yet another storm this weekend? Time to start counting the days to Nov 2 and VWL!!!!

03-06-2001, 02:26 PM
Well, I came up short in my original post, we didn't get 20 inches, we got a couple of feet & it's still snowing!! We're in Pepperell, MA, North West of Boston.... (pretty close to you MinnieMe2!!!)

We're expecting another storm Friday into Saturday... Unfortunately that's the day of my son's sixth birthday party!! Snowed out again :-( We have the worst luck!!!

I envy all of you going to HH & WDW in the coming weeks!! Wish it was us!!!

03-06-2001, 03:04 PM
I live in Beverly, MA north of Boston, and we're getting bombed with snow - 16 inches and it's still coming down. My kids are praying for snow-day off from school - #3...I've had it....at this rate, they'll be making up these snow days in July! Keep counting off the days until April and the 7-day Disney cruise...can't wait!!

03-06-2001, 03:38 PM
I'm back, it's STILL snowing. I hear you my friends to the south as in NH, when will it stop?
This was supposed to be PA's snow, not ours, what happened? Anyway, since I was and still am snowbound I made a few calls to HH about bicycle rentals and dolphin boat trips. I needed something to make this day pass and make me feel better. I spoke with a very nice man about bike rentals and he gave me some info about beaches and distances from HH DVC to beaches by bike.
He was very pleasant and informative. Now I am really anxious to leave the snow.

03-06-2001, 03:44 PM
So far about 12 inches here in Wakefield MA! For the past 2 days we have been baking, coloring, playing video games and having FUN! We leave for WDW on the 19th of this month. Took advantage of the snow day and starting packing!

Sunshine, here we come!!!! What the weather been like at WDW??

About a foot of snow here too. Thank goodness we still have electricity - the kids have spent the day watching videos & Nickelodeon and playing PlayStation. I took advantage of the endless afternoon and added a bunch of new stuff to our Disney website. It was nice looking at all the sunny photos and reminiscing but now I'm looking forward to our June trip more than ever.

I can't believe it's 7pm and the snow is still coming down...

36 hours of snow and still snowing here in southeast New Hampshire. We've had about 24 inches so far, and it's supposed to keep going for another 6 hours at least. The pile next to the driveway is so high we can't snowblow over it anymore.

We sure wish we lived 20 miles from Sanford, Florida, instead of 20 miles from Sanford, Maine!

But only 73 Days 18 Hrs 3 Mins 45 Secs till OKW :D

Well, thats what my weather guy said anyway! haha And what the heck am I supposed to do with all this water and bread I bought? ;-)
Seriously, I wish it had either did the whole "blizzard" thing or not come at all. All I can say is I want to go to DISNEY!

Only about 6 inches here in Mineola (center of Nassau County). I had to work today and there was about 4 inches there near the South Shore. It is snowing again but the prediction is for only about an inch more. My best friend (and co-member) lives on Shelter Island on the east end of L.I and had a foot of heavy wet snow at 5:00 PM with more coming down. Now they are predicting more for this weekend!! Oh to be at OKW now that winter will not end! For those of you on L.I. (and vicinity)-Don't forget the DIS/DVC meet this Saturday at the Melville Barnes & Noble at 2:00!
Hope to see you there! ;)

We have about 18 inches here near Boston, but it's still coming down. Yup, it's beautiful, but not as beautiful as BWV......

03-06-2001, 06:52 PM
Here in central NH, it's still snowing at 9:45PM Tuesday. I think we got 18-24 inches (we shoveled so often we didn't keep track), and since we already had the 3 feet of snow on the ground from the really bad storm in February, we are in serious danger of running out of places to put it. So to anyone who wants some snow, I've got 5 feet of it on the ground to spare.

A very long 52 days to WDW!

Finally stopped snowing here in Miller Pl. L.I.
Hard to tell the actual amount with all the drifts but seems like 14 inches. Feels like more on the shovel!

03-06-2001, 07:07 PM
We were supposed to get 2 or 3 feet of snow and the storm developed 5o to 100 miles north of us and Mass, Conn, New York State area got the bulk of the storm. I must say I am happy for the ski areas; however, I am tired of shoveling. I would rather be in Disney!! ;)

03-06-2001, 08:27 PM
hopefully this the end thank god . i think we got more than 15 inches here in miller place . suffolk county got creamed. i still would rather be at OKW. but oh well . dave
