We don't really measure the snowfall in my area since it can vary by the neighborhood or what side of the river you're on. When it crosses Lake Michigan it can do whatever it wants to do. I generally figure out when it reaches the top of my mailbox how much it compares to last season. Thursday and early Friday the streets were packed with snow, and cars and SUV were getting stuck because of the ground clearance.You can only plow an X amount of snow with your grill. Both my Son and myself had to go out to shovel and push a few vehicles. Friday afternoon was beautiful, clear skies 40°, the snowplow came through late but cleared the street. I have a bone dry driveway although it took effort to get it that way. I love this season.

Looks like a good day to stay inside and drink beer...except I have approximately 3,000 cubic feet of snow to move off my driveway...not counting the stuff at the end from when the plows have gone by. Sigh.

This is a good one, even for up here. We are right in the middle of it now. In fact , I'm amazed I can send this post and that we still have power. It's about 5 F and white-out conditions.
We already have about 2 ft but its blowing around so much, who can tell. They are saying the town of Gorham ( 1 hour south of us) had 32 inches about 3 hours ago.

I opened the door for the dog this morning. He looked at that wall of white and said %^&@ that #$%&!!! I'll pee on the carpet.

I wish this happened yesterday. I would have missed work.

We barely have anything, maybe 3-4 inches? Definitely not enough to justify the crazy gas lines yesterday!
