Holy Cow Tyrell!! That's terrible. I hope you can get things together soon.

If it had happened later in the year it would have been no big deal, we'd just be complaining about getting 3 feet of snow.  But this early it is so wet, dense and heavy it is just pure destruction.  You'd swear we were hit by a tornado, the damage is about the same.  Parts of the town still doesn't have power and it's been 4 days now since the storm came through.  It was a record breaking storm for sure.  I haven't seen anything like this in 20 years at least.

 

 

Here is the view at the entrance to my apartment building.  Note the vehicle on the left is a full size pickup truck and the snow is almost up to the top of the hood.  It took a while to even find my car as it was completely buried to the roof.

Wow! We had 58" of snow in April the early May this year. Heavy and wet too, but not all at once. It took 5 weeks.

Holy monkies! I haven't seen that much snow since I was sent to Marquette, MI on a service call in February. Are the temperatures staying cold or are you seeing some melting?

Heh, yeah it was almost 60 degrees today so now we're under flood watch too.  Was interesting to watch the steam coming off the parking lot at work.  I can't help but stop and wonder at things like that, no matter how old I get.

 

All we can do is laugh and be thankful it isn't even worse I guess.  The call center building down the street from my work is a total loss.  Not only did the roof come down but the walls were pulled in too.  They had a dozer leveling the place to finish it off this afternoon.  The building is quite new too.  It's shocking that just getting a lot of snow can do such a thing.  The problem is that it was such wet snow, and it all came down in around a 24 hour period of time more or less.  Too much too fast, and the wind built up huge drifts on one side of all the roofs.  The trees around town will look mangled for years now, it makes me sad.  I hope it doesn't portend what the whole winter will be like, I can't take more storms like this in the same calendar year.  Having to shower and eat by flashlight really reminded me to be grateful for what we have and take for granted in our daily lives.  Things that people in some parts of the world don't get to have at all.

 

Now I can listen to my amp again finally.  Going to try a different pair of 45s soon.  There is a lovely pair of blue globe Arcturus 145s on eBay right now, but the price is already beyond what I would be willing to pay.  I imagine for globes that will always be true, but those blue glass tubes would look amazing in Glenn's amp.

Thank God there was no loss of life.

 

It does look bad, hopefully you won't get anymore like that.

 

BTW they have different plate structures, but still look beautiful.

Yup.  Whole town is destroyed.  The roof collapsed at my workplace and a lot of other buildings fell in too, I had to wear a hardhat all day today while clearing debris and salvaging computer equipment.  Every tree in the city is split in half.  It's a disaster.

 

I sympathize with y'all. I got caught up worrying about some measly Santa Ana Winds Steely Dan once famously sung about. Honestly, no contest!

Thank goodness you're safe and sound.

That's impressive :blink:

 

I just moved Glenn's 300B amp back downstairs to the living room and replaced the RK60 with a Mullard GZ37.

 

DELICIOUS!

You are now going to have to extol the virtues via flavor of sprinkles on top of the pie!  :D

I wonder what Glenn is working on............he's been very quiet.

 

Glenn, I hope you studied the French lesson Bruno (my tube guru) sent, and don't tell me they all look the same!!!!!!!!!!
