    Bloody Fucking Hell.

    You don't shovel that much snow. You cut it and stack it. Cut a hole in the plowbank for the mailbox.

    Don't use a "snow" shovel either, unless you can use it to push the snow. Buy a "coal" shovel. Smaller, lighter, easier on the back load; nice long handle for leverage.

    NEMO???? What did the even mean? Disney names storms now? What's next the Cinderella Storm?

    Since nasty nor'easters are rarer (we hope) than hurricanes, calling them the Blizzard of 'XX  puts them in historic context. The Blizzard of '78 will always be the Blizzard of '78, even when the next '78 rolls around in 65 years.

    Then there are the folklore names (No Name Storm, April Fools Storm).

    I don't care what you call it; it was a Bloody Fucking Hell of a storm.

    Peace on Earth was all it said.
