Looks the same out my window in Pennsylvania this morning -- 3-5 inches expected.

Just took a trip to Philadelphia and the snow up near the Susquehanna river was beautiful. Real fluffy and stuck in the trees, but the rails were much further apart!

Those are some wonderful photos, Brenden. Thank you for sharing them.

'scuse me Ed,

I saw the beautiful snow pictures and I guess I drifted off!

I can see why the museum is eager to construct a car shed. Getting everything under cover for the Maine winter seems like a good idea.

Wish I could get up there more often to help out. Maybe after I retire.

See if you can convince John Jr. to come up. He works like a son of a pun.

Thank you, John M. I'm very proud of the lad, though he does sometimes pun-up me!

Great shots! Does the Hauling and Rigging Department now have a hot air balloon? As one can tell from some of the other threads here, obtaining the necessary "fuel" to operate one should be no problem. ;)

Are you sure it wasn't the Goodrich blimp?
