    Damn, you guys got it a lot worse than us Russell... I got maybe 3" and Manhattan got hardly anything. They said Atlantic City got hit pretty hard as well.

    Till Wednesday when they say the next storm should hit.

    The snow has slowed considerably at this point. Mostly just blowing around. I would guess Lancaster got about two feet. Luckily, it's cold and the snow was light. Aside from the stuff the plow moves, it's easy to shovel. The biggest hassle is the sheer volume. In the city there just isn't enough space to pile the stuff. That said, the streets have been plowed and the Prius will no problems going through what's left.

    That's how mine looked this morning! Around noonish, there was approximately 18-20" on the ground around the area I am. I think we'll end up with around 24" before it's all done. I'll have to go counter what the snow plow does later today. I love digging out, only to have more thrown back at me to dig out again!

    How could you be so mean to your new car? I keep mine in a nice warm heated garage.

    They have Michelin ICE X tires ready to battle the elements here in Cleveland. I do hate these WeatherTech mats. They are horrible in the winter.

    I have other stuff in my garage. Here is a pan shot of the garage. It only works if you have java installed.

    There's not just a car in it, there's a ceiling mounted heater to keep the car comfy and cozy and a floor drain in case the car doesn't want to go out into the cold to relieve itself! Sheez, pay attention!!! ;)

    (alright, I admit, I'm envious!)

    Even after viewing the full picture, you still don't have anything in the garage! My car gets a garage spot. The other side is shop tools--big ones. Then a good chunk goes to freezer, water softener, furnace/AC unit, water heater, etc. Your garage is spotless!

    Mine is sadly cluttered with everything but cars. If the clutter is organized, I can get one of the two Prius in there - sadly, it ends up being the one WITHOUT the solar roof.

    As for snow, I'd have to drive 100 miles north to even touch the stuff.
