You Be the Judge

So how much snow did we get? Well, let's see.

This much.

And this much.

Cubby didn't have school yesterday--no surprise, considering the howling blizzard--but he did have to get to the road to catch the bus today. A. went out at 6:30 a.m. to start shoveling the driveway. He shoveled it out yesterday, but the continuing snow and, more importantly, the wind blowing drifts, had covered it over again.

He did make a large enough spot at the end for the bus to turn around, but the driver elected to just keep going and presumably make a loop to stay on the plowed surface of the road.

Wise man.

The drifts between our house and the road were deep enough that A. actually carried Cubby part of the way to the side of the road to wait for the bus. A. is still outside shoveling, trying to dig out the van so we can leave for Blackrock tomorrow.

I don't even know how much snow we got--18 inches maybe--but I think it's safe to say our winter snow pack has begun.

What is the average season snowfall where you are then?

There are no official numbers for our actual location (too small), but A.'s best guess is a little over 100 inches.

Okay, this is funny. I just had to add that I looked up our location online to see what the average snowfall was listed as (though, again, there is no official weather station here and we're right on a high plateau that gets the most snow locally, so I take it with a grain of salt), and the website said our snowfall average is 95.3 inches, "which is 325% more than the national average." How cheering.
