My friend said they got a pretty nice room rate to extend their stay. I think they were just able to pay the extra $15 or $20 to add days to their tickets so why not! Disney wisely knows they are stuck, give them a good room rate and they stay on property to spend more money!

We got about a foot, maybe more. It snowed pretty steady from 6am this morning until.. well it's still lightly snowing.
Dh and I were discussing if there is any inclement weather when we leave in two weeks we will find a way to get out ahead of it rather than after. I don't want to lose any days off this trip and a few hundred to extend it a night or two would be my preference. We had to do it last time we went in February and it worked much better to leave a day early than wait 2 or 3 days to get on a flight after.

We are in central NJ and there is a lot of snow out there, but I don't think it is that bad since we got the tail end of the storm.

Just be safe!

It's a beautiful sunny day here- the snow stopped and wind dropped during the night. So far it's taken DH over 2 hours just to clear the driveway. No idea how much snow we got because of all the drifting, but some of the drifts were over 2 ft. high in places. Thank heavens we didn't lose power.

Good luck to everyone in the Maritimes and New England; I know that you're getting hammered harder than we did.

We're in Union County NJ and got about 6 or 7 inches. Nowhere near as bad as they were saying! I hope everyone on Long Island and in CT and MA are safe!!

Not bad here either, now that it is almost noon the plows are out, people are out clearing...

I hope everyone else is safe in the north and keeping warm!

We still have a driving ban in MA! Our neighbors are headed to FL for vacation and have rescheduled the flight 3 times already. I suppose better to dog out before you leave than have to when you get back!

Actually, shouldn't be *too* amazing! Those *buggers* are *very* expensive. We have a large portable generator, and the house is wired to accept it for certain circuits. It works fine for us, and not *near* as expensive, even though whole house generators are very nice!

Ended up with more than 2 feet here in southern NH. When I went outside with all of the drifts, the lowest spot anywhere was 26", with high drifts over 5 feet. Good times......
At least there was a young entrepreneur going around with a bucket loader to help clear driveways, I happily employed him , now when the wind dies down a little later I'll go out and clean up a little more with the snow blower and shovel.
Hoping everyone has heat/power and gets down to see our favorite mouse. Luckily up here, despite the snow, the power has been a non-issue this storm.

The roads are clear in Westford MA, but we're still digging ourselves out! I hope they lift the driving ban so we can ski!
