Hey Drew,
OT, but did you get dumped on?
A buddy of mine down there did, amazing amount of snow.

Here are some pics I have of a snipe wing that I repaired that was completely broken in half.
The spars were broken as well.
Total repair with Rohacell and Carbon added only 10g.
While I don't throw very had I have had a few hard trowers chuck it for me and it's holding up nicely.

Yup, I got just about that much snow. Maybe a bit more.

I'm in Lancaster, which was the center of the worst snowfall. In 2 days we got more than 6 feet. I had piles on the sides of my driveway about 8 feet high from shoveling.

The snowblower was useless, since the snow piles were too high and heavy. The heavy equipment was out in my area the last 3 days putting the snow into dump trucks and hauling it away.

Tomorrow it will be around 70 degrees and all the snow will melt. Amazing.

Forgot to mention that after I get the Rohacell sanded I use a spooge mixture of resin, cabo and flox to give the skin some strength as well as get it smooth. Then I have some really light weight filler called Split Second that I apply to doing any final filling, sand most of it off smooth and one layer of Carboweave removing as much resin as I can.
It came out so good after I wet sanded it that to this day I haven't painted it (weight!!!!)
