It's been snowing since 12:50 PM.
It took three hours for the snow to even stick.

It's snowing heavily, at least an inch an hour. We're under snow advisory until 6 PM tomorrow (Saturday). The snow is a wet, sticky snow, hard to shovel. I've already shoveled the entire driveway once and the lower part a second time. That was 4 hours ago. The good news: The wrist 'held'. The bad news: Tomorrow's shoveling will be Nasty. It may be too heavy for the snow blowers.

You're looking at the snow and a cyclone fence.

See all that snow on the gate? That's 11 (eleven) inches by the outer edge where the house doesn't block the snow.

The Weather Service wasn't kidding about 8-14".

Don't get me wrong, but I'm glad it's you and not me.

Snow looks nice when you do not have to deal with it. I am sure that it will be much work when it stops. Guess Phil was right winter is not over for awhile.

A few days ago they were predicting we were going to get four to seven inches of snow in SW Michigan from "your" storm.

It seems to have missed us completely. The sun is shining and the sky is blue today.

Keep warm and dry, Nancy! :) (as much as you can, when you have to shovel)
