Guys at work here telling me their rural schools closed again today making it the 12th wx day off this school yr.  I find that crazy for a season that's below normal snowfall with zero issues in December and only that 2-day mega-cold spell. Idk how they made it thru 13-14 tbh??

You are right and same here. Lots of schools closed again. Man, they will make up days come June and a lot students and teachers will not be happy about that.

I ended with a 6.5" total here at home. Backside certainly delivered, and then some! Oh what could've been if the front side wasn't toasted by the warm nose aloft. We would've joined the Major party to our west and north. Not a complaint here, just an observation that each of the (4) storms this season have had an issue that kept them from going big. Maybe, as Tom thinks, one of these times we'll get the whole enchilada? Was nice to see a system with snow and wind together for a change. Plenty of cool drifts even around town this evening.   :D

It could had easily been 10-15" or more had it been all snow, but that's okay. I am not going to be greedy here.

 

Awesome buddy. My total was shy of yours, at 6.3" and drifts as high as 3ft. Winds were blowing the snow along w falling snow which created blizzard conditions at times. Backside definitely produced the goods. No complaints! :D
