I figure we got 18" or so. Lots of drifting so its hard to say.
I LOVE the Merrimac Valley, if they say 12, we get 14-16
Made it thru one-armed without any major incidents.
Matt needs a little experience with the snow blower but has it pretty well down.
His sister was a little upset that SHE didnt get that detail.

We got a little better than a foot. Brutal wind. Massive drifts.

Bowtie, I feel for you. I've worked at car dealerships since the early 90s. Snow is definitely what seperates the men from the boys. I'm at a Chevy store, few hundred cars plus the commercial truck side. Oh what joy!!

I think I got about 6-8" here in Nashua... Was up at 430 to snowblow and get to work on time...

I LOVE my truck in the snow! It's FEROCIOUS in the snow!!!!! Ahahahahahaha!!!!! And it gets going waaaaaaay too fast too quickly and THEN it wants to play. Almost put it in a ditch around 50mph because I was fishtailing and having fun, then wasn't sure how to slow down without upsetting the truck. I did it wrong. lol. Good thing I was the only idiot out there this morning! Gave me lots of "eff up" space and gave me plenty of freedom for my learning curve! I think I passed 2 cars my whole drive in...

Lots of snow here too. The MCSS is a beast. The drive by wire mixed with traction control automatically adjusts the throttle allowing me to put my foot to the floor and it accelerates as fast as it can without spinning tires or revving the motor up unnecessarily. It gets going pretty quick. Still though, I am going to grab a used set of 16" wheels and mount up some new snow tires on this thing.

I honestly wish I had pics of what I went through getting home Sunday night into this morning. I got home in the middle of the night, I was one of the only vehicles on the road, you could not see more than ten feet in front of the truck at one point and that was on 128, I was seriously about to crap my pants I was so scared. Laughing

I was at a wedding in Middleton, went to Salem and Beverly after that to a bar that was still open, then had to fight the snow all the way home. My truck is a total gift from God in this crap! I didn't lose control once and it got me home without a problem, I plowed right through the big snowbank at the end of my driveway like it was nothing.

I had to blow snow all day, I have to say there is NO substitute for a 1970s vintage Ariens (orange and white ones). I don't know what I'd have done without it, I will never go back to shoveling. If you don't have one of these, get one, because they are better than any newer machine.

I have an old Ariens but it's usually buried under some junk, sometimes I let the wife use it. I have a plow on my Blazer, I never let the wife use that. Smile
