    I want to live where you do right now. We got 12 inches, but 28 would have been better.

    oh man you are lucky. last few days its been a inch every mourning, or afternoon. just enough to make the roads slippery. at the moment it is rainning. so i hope it freezes so the snow gets a hard crusty layer to hold up one of my rcs, lol.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    Hmmmm....Hope your heater works!!

    If we get a hint of snow it'll melt on contact. We was lucky '05 or 06' that we got like 12-14 inches of snow over night. The last bit melted 4-5 days later, hidden deep in a ditch under trees. LOL I wasnt into RC's then, but that sure would have been a blast.

    That is probably the most ridiculous thing I have seen someone do with an RC Boat, but that makes me want to go get one. Lol

    we got 10-12 inches in NJ.. Not nearly what they threatened us with all day, but 28-36 is too much and the fun ends quickly when you want to got out and do something. The boat video was pretty cool.. I may try that with mine.. something different.

    Could you imagine one of those boats on a snow covered field that was along side a road? You could just drive along and drive your boat a long side you! Lol

    Even Buffalo doesn't get snow like it used to. Back in 2000 we got 7 feet in just over 48 hrs! World record for a city.

    Yeah we here in Chicago have struggled to get over a foot a year since the Blizzard of '11. Got stuck in a snowdrift in that one.

    Haha guys, if you want it, you can take it. I fly R/C now so the snow really doesn't help.. or hurt my flying, unless it's actually snowing WHILE I'm flying. But yeah it is a lot, and honestly I'd rather have a tad less . Back in.. 2011 I think we lost power, for 7 days, as well as having 20+'' of snow. That was an ordeal... but this time around it was more powdery.
