I kept hearing, terrible storm approaching, expect many inches of snow and lots of ice, stock up to now to hibernate. We don't have a lot of snow removal equipment or materials stored.
Sleds and snow toys, last forever here, unless they use it for another purpose, because they seldom get used.
It rained and it thundered, and it got up to nearly 60F. Well, this morning we woke up to our first snowfall of the winter 2012-2013. You can still see soil through the snow, but it was well dusted with snow. We got a bit more snow, interestingly, the ground is not frozen, and the snow is not sticking to paths, just to trees and bare soil.
It is too warm to stick around, so folks have to enjoy it fast.
I think there is enough for a decent snowball, but not enough for sledding.
There is/was an interesting feature on the Weather Channel: It is called "What is the Deepest Snow in your state" and starts with number 50 which is the least amount of snow and goes to number 1 the most depth of snow. Think about it for a moment and make a guess where your state would be... while this loads and see how close you are... I missed by a long ways. https://www.weather.com/news/weather-win ... r-20130220
