Just a bit of snow...

For my area at least,  this predictive map was spot on:

It was nice to stay in and watch the snow fall,  and blow around.  We were lucky like most and didn't lose power which allowed us to enjoy two days of quiet, enforced relaxation.  School was called off for Friday
When all was said and done we got around 24-28 inches of snow.  its hard to tell really because it blew and drifted so much.

Poor Molly had to go pee in this. It was still blowing and snowing when she had to go out on Saturday morning.  We had a 4 foot drift on the front steps that she and i had to plow through but the wind had blown a clear spot at the end of the drift.

Here's a couple videos of the clearout.

Front part of the house.  I took this leaning out of the living room window.

Backyard from the driveway:

We had a snow drift that covered the kitchen window entirely.
