For anyone who's curious, this was last nights snowfall. From about 4pm to 6am.
that is a 12 inch ruler. The line is the cutoff for the drifting. above is drifted snow, below is actual snowfall.
And, since it was above freezing when the snow started falling, the bottom 2 inches is pretty much ice. (I couldn't shove the ruler down into it, it was so hard.) And, the lid to that dumpster was clean yesterday, just so you know.
So, for anyone who is looking for a nice relaxing location to take a vacation, I have a spare bedroom with it's own private bath I'd be willing to rent very cheap. Only cost you one driveway shoveling.
