I've already got 3' of it on my lawn.
You 'aint lived until the snow plow goes by and leaves a 3' high wall of snow across the end of your driveway...
temp is +1F today as a daytime high (-17C).
With the wind chill factored in it's -13F (-25C).
It was so cold last night, that my moustache was frozen white (from my breath) when I was shovelling the end of the driveway. If you breathe through your nose, you can actually feel the snot freezing up...
And I'm working a highway dispatch console today
I remember my parents' old house's driveway once having
what must have been a good 3 foot high wall of snow at the bottom from the plow. That was after the big storm (7 years ago?).
It was also pretty bad back in early December 2003, when we got hit with about 1 1/2 feet of snow in one storm.
The totals the storm that just ended an hour or so ago, are now 5 - 8 inches. They initially said 3 - 4. That is almost double what they predicted...
I am glad I have AWD, sophisticated traction control and stick shift, but this morning it was impossible to drive fast.
The snow was actually the lightest (in weight) I have seen it in ages!
I woudn't have expected the roads to be so slick, but I guess the cold
really made the roads turn slick.
I am sure there will be a ton of accidents today.
