So how much snow does everyone have so far? It started snowing here around midnight, and it looks like we have 6" so far. 18 degrees and windy.

Started yesterday with snow, made the roads a little slick :dancing: :rockon: Yeah baby !!!!!!!


But then it changed to very cold rain/sleet mess then all rain.

But then the damn wind started. Just about blew the storm door off the front of the house around 10:15 last night. Ripped the 3" screws right out of the jamb where the struts are located on the top and bent the hell out of the bottom strut. Looks like I will be putting a new storm door on this weekend. It was time anyway. Winds finally died down by morning but still blowing a little.

Bring on the weekend storm.

About 4 inches here, started as nice fluffy snow then turned to sleet. Now it's a wet heavy mess.

That's all we got too - 4"-5" of slop. Started at 7 last night as powder. 33° this morning, windy as a bastard - house creaked after a 27 mph gust hit.
