    We're in the middle of a heavy snow right now, and we're supposed to end up with a total accumulation of 15 - 25 cm ( 6 - 10 inches).

    We had snow (~ 2 inches/5 cm) mixed with rain last night. I prefer the dry (cold) powdery stuff.

    I'm sending it your way, George. We've already got nearly 10 inches and it's still coming down. We're in the foothills in central Maine, and these storms are always a crap-shoot for us.

    We've had around 4' of the stuff so far, but a torrential rain knocked that down a bit. We've got another storm bearing down at us for tomorrow night - likely another 10" or more. The snow has been a boon to the people in the snowmobile-tourism business.

    Now the forecast for is for a total accumulation of 20 - 30 cm (8 - 12 inches) before the snow ends early tonight.

    Hope the pizza guy can get through later tonight!

    We're really getting socked this winter!

    It started snowing yesterday afternoon, and it seems to be done for now, with thinning clouds. Got another 12" or more to take care of. I'm putting it off, drinking coffee, and tending the wood stove, but it looks like another 4-6 hours with the roof rake, shovel, scoop and snow-blower. This is the snowiest start of winter in more than a decade. Every couple of days, we get more snow.
