Well, we've complained a lot about weather in the past. Most of the east got hit with a decent storm this weekend. East of here is where the 11 feet has fallen. We have about 2 feet. So how about a poll? How much snow is on your ground right now? Anyone from the hardest hit areas?
Here in DK the flowers are starting to bloom, the squirrel is running outside the window and the grass is green. Temperature is 50 degree Fahrenheit and Mother nature is seriously confused by now. It is supposed to be winter, but it sure looks like early spring. Good thing though, I don't have to showel snow. That reminds me, how does one go about showelling snow if there is 11 feet? That is getting real close to the top of my little house!
As of today we're around 6-12 inches in South Central Wisconsin. A couple of more inches are due this weekend. The amount of snow isn't as big a deal around here as the cold has been the last couple of weeks. It's supposed to start warming up beginning tomorrow.
It's kind of funny to listen to people whining about the cold when, in two to three months, it'll be "It's soooooo HOT!"
I live about 20 miles east of Rochester NY, we have between 2 to 3 ft of snow. It is difficult to measure due to the wind. Yesterday morning I had a 3ft drift near my garage door, with about 6 inches at the bottom of the driveway. The past two week I have been using the snow blower almost everyday.
I cleaned the driveway last night (7pm), this morning it was co0mpletly covered with drifts.
The kids are happy 2 snow days, next week winter break.
We got about 9 inches Wednesday/Thursday. It wasn't so much the snow but the wind. We had blizzard conditions, winds over 35mph, the snowplows were pretty much useless until it stopped early Thursday morning. I had 4' drifts in my drive, got it cleaned THEN the plows came through & plowed me right back in. Drifts between neighbors are between 5-6' high. Another 1-3" on the way tonight.
GERT - I don't know what you do with 11' drifts other than make a snow fort, but with 4' ones, you knock them down then run the snow blower over them, double duty but MUCH easier than shoveling heavy snow.
