Finally able to use the snowshoes! Here's some pics I took yesterday evening. About 6" on the ground then. The snow really picked up as we headed home. The pine trees always look awesome covered in sn

Pound town and flake size is increasing. 6” down combined last night and so far today. Looking good for 2-4” more today.

The neighborhood looks great this morning. Just wish it were January and not April. One heck of a stat padder storm! Total for the season was at 24" and we just about got half that in one day. Still about a foot short of average. Can I order up one of these storms for Dec 15th next winter? :D

Dang Snowshoe!  Those pics look amazing!  I remember you posting pics like these during the winter of 2013-14 and it's been quite a long time since you got hit by such a  large storm.  Looks like a powdery snow on top of what was probably a wetter variety towards the beginning of the system.  Congrats again!

N MI is getting pounded from that very intense defo band swinging through.  I took a look at the last 96 images on radar and there was a blob of 30-35dbz returns.  Temps in the mid 20's, wind and heavy snow in early April must have been amazing to experience.  The heaviest stuff has just swung through, but man, that must have been some intense snow for quite a while.

 

Yep, place to be is NEMI with this one. Huron chipping in some qpf and already some places up there over a foot, and still coming down.
