It has been coming down since 8am, and may continue until 6 or 7pm!! :shock:
It's really very pretty, BUT also very wet and heavy...keeping fingers crossed the power lines hold! Also, hope I don't lose too many plants and branches here on my totally wooded lot!

It's called hunker down time in Missouri.

So far we have had only about 2" of snow this winter. Snow has been light and fluffy. Broom to sweep it off. Still have about 1" of snow cover.
Cold, we have more than usual. Suppose to warm up tomorrow, above freezing day time temps for a few days.

Waiting for the other shoe to fall, blizzard.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Here in Mountain Maryland, that would be a heavy frost. We got six inches out of that storm, with a high of 5F. Warmer temps to come.

:lol: :lol: Nothing like a little lake effect snow, eh Bill!

Lived south of Buffalo when I was a runt. The guy that plowed our driveway pushed the first snow into the backyard. By March we were lucky to have a place to park some winters.

Enjoy the snow Dale, remember it when it's 95 with 80% humidity this summer!

I used to feed the birds. The Cardinals are beautiful in the snow. Attracted too many varmints/vermin. Glad I quit.

Guess that means my house isn't so dirty, as it only has 1" dust, rather than the 10" we now have outside!!

I played in it after getting off work with the Ford, shovel and backpack blower. It’s so dry the blower did good. The Cubs are resting in the shed. We were supposed to get 1-3”, so far we have 8”.
