For the folks in NYC north though ... you may get hit pretty hard
Lucky you, it started this morning and they are calling for 1-2 feet.

I live in this perfect little pocket where the storm is going to do nothing but rain on us...and not even that much. Nemo didn't find me!

What tends to be the snow level that gets folks worried up there? Obviously the ft mark is not good news.

I know down this way, I personally am OK until we start getting near the 8-10" mark. At that point I need to double check my longer term beer supply. A few years back we got around 38" in the span of two weeks which was crazy. I actually had to clear off some of my roof as I was concerned about the snow weight.

So do you have a Privacy Fence? And when is the SSC pool party happening?

This made me laugh! I realize you are from up North, but pretty much everyone has a fence in Houston, the tall wooden kind, just called a fence (assume this is what you refer to as a privacy fence?). Similar to how all soft drinks are coke regardless of what kind it is. We are wierd in the south!

But yes, to those that have asked, if you are in Houston you are invited to come swim!

I'm actually from the Atlanta area originally. Where I grew up everyone had a fence, But some had just a chain link style fence.... and some had a fancy looks nice wooden fence where it could be seen from the street, but when it got behind the house went chain link or something less pretty.


The concern is when we do the SSC party, how much privacy will we have from the neighbors after the drinks have been flowing for awhile.

Hi guys! This is my first time on this thread and it seems like a good place to talk. Figured I need to stop myself from avoiding new people and enjoy life a bit more. Like the time I made a dating profile online and made a clear effort to avoid checking it. Bad dating experiences will do that. Oh well, fresh start!

how much privacy will there be since the Pyrate always has a camera with him...

It rained here until shortly after noon, then a heavy wet snow started coming down. Now it looks a little fluffier, but only a few inches. We were let off work early and the roads were not very good. Think I will be staying home for a while. Glad I brought the snowblower out of the shed and into the garage, looks like I will finally need it. But should be great skiing, heading up to Vermont in a week. Hope everyone makes it through OK!

Good luck with the pool, Tara!
