Yet Another Storm

Yet another storm rolled through the area yesterday.  The weatherman initially predicted 4-6 inches total with some rain, sleet and freezing rain mixed in.  It was actually two storms converging (lucky us!).  The initial storm, which they thought would be rain, started as snow and pretty much stayed snow.  It was "over producing" and the snow was accumulating faster than anticipated.  The "lull" between the two storms lasted for a short time midday - it never really stopped snowing and there was some sleet thrown in.  Once the snow started again, visibility was pretty much non-existent and the snow was coming fast and furious, measured by inches an hour.  We now have well over a foot of snow on the ground.  I didn't know this part of Pennsylvania was on the edge of the arctic....

I'll try to post pics later - after we've dug out.

Where the plow came by at the end of my driveway, the pile is taller than my mailbox.

Digging out it going to be backbreaking. I hope you are feeling better after your accident.

It's supposed to do the same here.....another big dump just when we've got it all pushed out of the way.

Sorry to hear you're getting hit like that. It's been a bad year.
