ElBarto79: My friend posted this picture from Maine.  If you look closely there is a car in there...

Why would your friend take a picture of a buried car and ignore whatever's pulling on that lead?  Pan left so we can see the Wampa tied up in the yard.

Looks like around 20 inches in Salem, MA, but it's still coming down.  Hard to tell as I have a six foot high drift blocking our door.

Pretty rough here in Florida, probably going to take book and cooler of beer to the beach. Could be a little chilly though if there is a breeze, I'll try to make the best of it though and hang in there.

the opposite of charity is justice: Getting a little irked at the non-stop coverage on cable news.  A regional snowstorm is not national news just because it happens where the talking heads happen to reside.

Sorry your tv remote is broken.

Wait isn't that the way there supposed to end up granted my experience may be jaded.

Oh and have fun with the 4-day weekend and I want picks or you know it didn't happen : )
One a day should do unless you want to send more ; )
This is the song I expected you play but well what do I know Link

Well, in fairness, being Irish German and Japanese, I am perhaps a distillation of the three most cantankerous folks on the planet, but we are a fine and noble people, with a rich and cultured history, and great rhythm. As for pics, maybe later, when I dig out of this mess that the Snow Gods dumped on us. ;)


Apparently, they listened to some wee bairns...

Deep Contact: I just whipped out my measuring rod and  inserted 12" in the snow.

So what is that in real inches?

This storm is ridiculous.  It has already dropped to nearly 65 degrees in my neighborhood, when the breeze is blowing.

cameroncrazy1984: Not a WRX. 2.5i.

It's OK, you could have just said lesbian model.

They're all awesome AWD cars, but you're putting on airs.  You have an Outback wagon.  It's OK.  I want one too.

To Ted@WCSH6: Tip for news story involving your Portland Towercam

Dear sir,

I am a native Mainer, currently living in Denver. I have been hearing about Winter Storm Nemo on your website for a couple of days now, corresponding with my friends back home and watching the storm roll in on your Towercam. Actually, I have been watching for most of the day. It's a beautiful shot of the city, really makes me homesick. Thank you for letting me watch the blizzard in Maine from my computer in Denver.

I also submitted the link to the Towercam to Here is the link to the discussion thread: -drunk-do-you-have-to-get-to-shovel-Can-we-hope-for-no-work-on-Monday- Its-your-official-Winter-Storm-Nemo-discussion-thread-wlink-to-live-ca m Satirical views on interesting, bizarre and amusing stories, submitted by a community of millions of news junkies, with regular Photoshop contests.

The link will post to the main page of Fark sometime around 3 AM EST. You can expect several thousand clicks to your Towercam page.

I am an active member of Fark with 675 approved submissions and am projected to be on the top 100 Submitters Of All Time list in a month, or so. I have been a news junkie for over 30 years and spend lots of time in my Google Reader queue. I am also looking for part-time journalistic type work. Please contact me with any possible opportunity.

Sounds like a story to me.

You can contact me at:

And thanks again for the awesome cam!


To me, ted[nospam-﹫-backwards]h­scw*ga­nnett:
Thanks for the email. Not to make you more homesick, but we will be streaming 8 straight hours of Storm Center coverage beginning at 5am Eastern Time online if you want to watch more of our coverage.

Oh well, I tried.
