Don't know how much we got. First about 4 inches then sleet that beat down first snow, then more snow. Guessing about 10 altogether. Enough snow to collapse neighbors metal carport and stress ours pretty good. Rafters are curved and east side is several inches out of plumb. Fortunately snow and ice melted off limbs and wires before becoming a problem.

Got about 12" but it drifted in my little valley. The jeep Tractor had a ball romping around pushing the snow.
I'm no Yankee going to Florida, I'm no Yankee I'm from Italy. It's those Yankees returning from Florida bringing this weather with them. The Yankees are in spring training? Kidding.

More ice & snow due tonight, up to 5" more snow on Saturday. GREAT?

Remember it's 40 degrees next week. The garlic should be pushing up through the snow soon. Get the tillers running.

Can the weather pattern get any worse? I hope the polar bears are ok they should have plenty of ice.

I just put away another cord of firewood for next year but who knows.

Somebody warmed it up just enough to turn to heavy rain here after a couple of inches of snow. The ice banks are still firmly in place from the last time I plowed with the Cub..... need a stump grinder for most sidewalks around here!

Guess it's too much for Joyce to get with the leaf blower this time :lol: !

We got about a foot and a half the other day on top of the snow and ice that hasn't melting because of the cold weather. It took me all day to push back the snow and ice piles because my driveway was getting narrower and narrower. another 6" on the way today. I'm running out of rroom to put this stuff. Thought about moving south but it looks like I would have to pack my snow blade.

Now you know what it feels like! I'm glad it didn't hit here. We (Grand Rapids, MI) are already the third most snowfall in the nation (that includes Alaska!). We had 3 weeks straight with temps in the single digits and it hasn't been above freezing since early in December. It's been a rough one!

Last summer I was in Manistee Mi. My old neighbor asked me now that your retired are you going to move back to Manistee. NO! NO! :mrgreen:
