    So much for shoveling 4 times yesterday to try and stay ahead of the snow fall. At least the birds know their favorite restaurant is still open. :p

    Where are you in Montreal Boubou? I remember as a kid growing up around the Montreal area, we used to get snow like this all the time...looks like folks have forgotten...it`s supposed to snow in winter. I have friends in St. Bruno and around there and I`m sure their photos are going to look just like yours.

    I am actually in Laval, north west part
    That was a 2008 storm, yesterday's storm was pretty much a non event, we did get snow, but nothing to talk about, at least around here

    This is the first thought I had when I read the thread subject. Major snowstorms like this may be unusual, but they're not unheard of and we usually get at least one a year on the prairies. Are they so special and dangerous now that they have to be marked with a name? I sometimes think that everyone needs to be the bearers of sensational news… :rolleyes:

    Just my $0.05. Pennies no longer accepted…

    Lived outside of Syracuse for a bunch of years. Like it was said, we had at least one of these every year. As a kid we lived for "snow days"!

    Actually "we" don't need to name snowstorms. The names come from the weather channel it's another marketing gimmick. If it has a name you will associate it with doom and gloom and tune in to watch their advertising. :rolleyes:

    Like any weather program on TV, the worse they make it sound, the more "we'll" watch.
    Complete BS.

    We got just under 7" here in central (Somerset County) NJ.

    It's all very pretty but no big deal. I had the driveway and walkways all cleaned up in less than an hour with my snowthrower.

    I too spent a couple of years living in Montreal; I lived "downtown" on Rue St. Marc. This "blizzard" wouldn't have even registered on the Montreal "snowmometer"!

    I don't know what the count was that we got, between 25" and 30" I guess. I shoveled about 4 or 5 times last night, thinking it would make a difference today but it didn't. It took about 4.5 hours today to clear out. I was too tired to bother taking pix. I had to laught last night thoug when friend posted this on her facebook. She and a couple of friends houng out eating and drinking and then I'm guessing the wine took effect. I wanted to go shovel their driveway instead.

    I think the only people who named the storm were the Weather Channel. Apparently the National Weather Service is not too happy with the idea.

    There are a bunch of people around here carrying on about the non-event because we only got 7 inches, which is slightly less than was actually forecast, and how these big storms are never as bad as the warnings say they'll be. They are somehow oblivious to the areas that got more than 3 feet of snow. There are plenty of places that got it just as bad as the forecast, and I suspect we'll hear from more of them after they get their power back.

    Hope everyone reading this from their smart phone because they are without power are doing okay. Hope the power comes back soon. Not too bad here in North Jersey. We caught almost a foot, but folks in the next town had only five inches. Weird storm. Our youngest had fun.

    :D I suspect that tele is somewhere less snowy than here by now. I do miss it though.
