Well, Harrisburg Pennsylvania wins for the East Coast, 28.6 inches of the white stuff (calm down Barry, I'm not talking about cocaine).

Record snowfall for us!  Enjoy this photo of Bigfoot the Sasquatch who was seen in the neighborhood...

Geez that's one beaut of a snow storm! Just 'bin watching some reports on CNN.

Not to rub it in but Southern Ontario was completely spared. We've had nice sunny skies and about -5C today. sunny

Seriously Chad, hope all is well with you and yours. And for cryin' out loud, get a real snow shovel! That will kill yer back.

32°C and about 65% humidity here... a little unpleasant. 

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

... just kidding! That snow looks epic, bro - take care!

Bazza... what's wrong with the shovel?! (Genuine question from one who's never had to shovel snow)

You're a lucky guy John!
The shovel? Well that size is OK to clear a light snow on the sidewalk, but when you get a major dump like this one that's also "wet" it gets bloody heavy!!

If you're forced to shovel (as opposed to using a snow blower) you're wise to use a shovel with an offset ("ergonomic") handle that shifts the centre of gravity and allows you to stand in a more upright position when lifting. Your lower back doesn't get the strain it would from bending over with a straight handle.

Google Examples

"Shoveling Bat-squatch Pastor Chad", lol!!!  That was great.

And Barry is right, those shovels seem to better position your back, hips and knees. 

Only about 7 hours of shoveling, over two days.  So not super bad, just bad. 

One for the record books!
