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".
