@ Jasterb

How much did you pick up from Sundays system?

A very dense 3". Just got done doing a thorough clean-up and that's the biggest snow removal workout in years for me. 15" OTG now. Massive pile at the end of my driveway means tossing it high!

I now have the driveway cleared and waiting for the road to be plowed,  That may not happen until tomorrow.  My son was over and said the main roads are plowed but some still have  hard packed snow on them.  He said the side roads are not plowed, I took some new measurements there is 4.7" of new snow that fell and now there just over 14" of snow on the ground.  This might be the deepest the snow cover gets this season.

We should give kudos to Tom . For weeks he had been telling us that the first week of Feburary would be wild, and it delivered over 18 inches of Snow! so boy did it come thru. 

 

anything more to look forward to Tom?

Officially I ended last week with 7" of snow. It was quiet exciting around my parts, especially on Friday night. We had a basketball game 7 miles down the road and when we got done, which we smoked are big rivals 75-36, it was impossible to see anything it was snowing and blowing so hard. My snow depth at the moment is up to 10" and I'm hoping we don't melt too much later this week!!
