We definitely had more than 14 I think though it did drift a bit so I guess it's hard go say.      Mike and I are in the Massachusetts attic circle    we always get hammered

I think Dave and Mike over in Central Massachusetts, may have a different idea about snowfall to Jason

Indeed Mike but I do have a good idea  of the difference between sun and snow :LittleDevil:

I drove past where that photo of the snow drifts I posted  day was taken on sunday and still snow there, just a mile or so from me.

Ok snow line moved a bit   12 to 18 here.   40 miles east of me 2 feet plus in Boston with blizzard conditions    which is over 2 inches per hour and sustained wind speeds of over 35 mph....that in a major metropolitan area is going to make for big problems.

Dave, 12-18 is still a lot to me. That's more than we get in 3-4 years combined which is why we don't even know how to deal with it. Stay warm !!

You forgot two elements to the blizzard definition.  Visibility of 1/4 mile or less, and it has to be sustained for at least 3 consecutive hours.   Parts of Massachusetts are already officially having a blizzard, and the storm is only about 1/2 over.

Here's what it looks like out my front window right now.  Hard to photograph blowing snow ;)

Cool pic there Mike

What’s the bottom pic I see a up draft carb and a 8 stak exhust manifold

I had bad icing in the carb when I did formula Ford 1600 racing look down the carb after a quick lap to see it almost blocked with ice pit crew where not happy with the water getting into the cylinders when it melted

My aim is for a accurate part with a good finish

The Merc goes into a whimpy full 'Winter mode'... Full traction control and reduced power... Bummer.

The up draft carb is feeding a two stage supercharger (blower) and is running on a methanol/ petrol fuel brew.

Mike :noidea:
