    We are at 28 inches and it is still piling up quick. Will be over 30" when it winds down.

    The snowblower and i worked thru 18" of wet stuff last night. Looks to be another foot out there now. Thankfully, we have not lost power.

    Glad I have A snow rake as they're predicting 45degrees and rain for monday. Gotta get most of it off the roof before then.

    I have a long day ahead of me.................

    P.S.-Stan, remember! Walleye fillets, not a wall of snow! LOL!!!!!

    Weather person on the news just said my area can expect another 10-14 inches of snow before it winds down tonight. Already have over a foot and the drifts are incredible. Took all my strength to push open the door to the airing yard. Poor dogs - the snow is half way up their backs. Oh, well currently have power even though wind is gusting up to 55 mph. Mail delivery has been cancelled for today. Tomorrow will be a better day!!!!

    Yes what is with it raining after so much snow! Our rain to start Sunday evening. At least today, sunny so some melt prior. It hard to keep pace with this type of weather. Take care all you folks out on the east coast.

    Although the snow started here on Friday around 8 AM, by 4:30 PM we only had 3 inches on the table on our back deck. 3 hours later, we had a foot! Paul's holding an 18 inch ruler in this photo:



    We cleared the tabletop and shoveled the deck and stairs for the dogs before going to bed.

    At 7:30 AM, the Labs woke me up, dancing back and forth from our bedroom to the dog door that let's them out onto the deck. I was quite surprised to see so much snow where we had cleared before bed, that the dog door was blocked.




    For once, I was glad to have super sized, super energy Molly bouncing off the walls before my morning coffee! I sent the dogs out by size. I opened the deck door and told Molly to go out and potty. After she happily plowed through the snow, the other dogs had a nice path across the deck and down the stairs.




    Our back yard, which is enclosed by a 4 foot fence;



    First things first, the deck and stairs are shoveled for the dogs:





    The snow stopped here around 10-11 AM, so we had another inch or so after these photos were taken.

    It got down to 43 degrees last night in coastal "Sort of Southern California" and listening to the weather reports, you'd think we were having it as bad as all y'all out there on the other coast. Their credibility continues to be suspect.

    Stay warm, be safe, and remember that a "three dog night" has some real advantages!

    p.s.: great photos from everyone!
