For those hunkering down on the East Coast for the Big Snow, may I suggest some reading material?

...18" to 24" coming my way.

Spinal stenosis and deep snow were made for each other.

Wish me luck.

I'm as prepared as I can be.

You might want to add a packet of Aspirin to your snow party supplies!

I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis and Spondelosisis a few years ago and after about a year the pain got so bad I was all set for surgery. Fortunately, I had an argument with the Neurologist about him keeping me waiting 3 hours and I went in search of another.

Found an Orthopaedist with sense enough to take an X-Ray and a fresh MRI. Turned out that while I have the Stenosis, 90% of the pain was an arthritic hip treatable so far with Cortisone injections and Vitamin I.

Watch out for Doctors who are all memory and no brains.

...who rectified two friends back problems, one of which was very serious.

I'll be getting another MRI and then my neurosurgeon will decide the course of action. He says if surgery is needed, its not very invasive and I'll be back to work in two days.

That sounds better than a chronic bad back.

If I need more wood that means not only did we lose power, but my generator is not working. That would suck.

Although, setting up the generator in a snow storm will be no fun either.

The blizzard has moved off shore, but they say 2" an hour for most of the day. That's too much snow.

We had that same snow dump last week and it's very nasty as it comes with strong winds that help to spread the snow all around including the side of your house, driveway, and whatnot. Be prepare to shovel every 4 hours to minimize the snow drift along the nooks and crannies. Failure to this you will end up calling the city's snow plow to dig you out.

However, despite all that snow shoveling last week we are back to a normal warm weather this week of which will be coming to your neck of the woods next week.

In an epic battle between cantankerous New Yorkers, and blizzard. NYC wins, and snow moves on.
Four inch average is all the storm could give. With variations here and there.
Reports from the clouds says snow decides New Yorkers are way to tough, and the storm hopes New Englanders are wusses.

The wind has been wailing like a banshee up here on the hilltop.Nothing to break it but a dozen 200 year old sugar maples planted west and south around the house. No idea how much snow we got with the drifts but a great day to test the wind and my 68 year old stamina on snowshoes. So much for New England wusses. And yes I did shovel the 60 + foot drive , despite the wind , after my hike.

...Doctors orders.

I have a snow thrower which is pretty easy to walk behind and steer.

To "shovel" the front walk I drive the snow thrower up the lawn, take a left and come down the steps.

Then I just push what was missed into its path and go around again.

It works pretty well.

when removing the snow using a snow thrower. I can only imagine what he must be going through...

Hey Lee, did y'all get dumped on the other day? Seems to me that the Madison area was included in the snow map on TV.

Because he's blowing the snow towards his driveway? Or that he should use an electric snow blower to be more environmentally conscious?

The cold numb his sense of direction. Perhaps, he should have wore a mukluks to help keep his toes warm.

No we didn't Dave. Maybe 4 inches. I did drive to Milwaukee the day after and they had 8 inches or so. I too have stenosis and lots of other issues with my back. Clearly we need a stenosis asylum here. Rod?

I found an Acupuncturist in Milwaukee who got a four year degree at a school in Portland and after going twice a week since early January the pain went down big time about two weeks ago. I canceled a steroid injection appointment that I had because this is really working. Least amount of pain killers I've taken in four years yesterday and today. As far as acupuncture goes if you ever need it, I think finding someone with a four year degree is imperative. Lot's of them out there with minimal training.
