The yardstick here at Toad Woods...

...puts the total snowfall at 24.5 inches, though once you're at two feet, it's hard to claim that half-inches count.

Yep, that daytime 5-9 inches turned out to be 13.5 inches here. I've shoveled enough to get the car to the driveway once Plow Guy returns, and the first 10 feet or so of the path to the mud room door. I still have 15-20 feet on that to go, but decided it could wait.

Yours for heart-attack-free shoveling,
Geri

I'm assuming you don't have the distraction of having to spend time better spent shoveling on pushing stuck automobiles out of the intersection...

Otherwise, I feel your pain.

Your assumption is right. The only intersection is where the top of my driveway meets the road, and even it's out of sight from where the shoveling gets done.

We ended up at about 21" total. It's been very white here. Our plow guy made ~4 passes, I think.

Plow Guy did his final pass about an hour ago. I thought he'd been by twice yesterday, but when I shoveled out to the ridge he'd left the first time, it looked like only once. I wonder if he'll be back with the front-end loader to push the mammoth piles of snow further back in the next few days.

wow. I think it usually takes two years worth of snow to get 24" here but I could be mistaken.

That's what you get for being too cold to snow so much of the time.

It really hasn't been as cold these last few years but then again we do get more snow including another 1.5" overnight. It doesn't equal 24+" but ours will not leave peacefully.
