LOTS of snow!

I am a weather watcher. On Tuesday, I sat down for a while & watched the band of lake effect snow growing over Lake Michigan. A little after noon, it began to snow, then it was near a whiteout for a while. Around 1:45, I got a call from 14 asking me to come get them because they were getting out early - no surprise because the snow was coming down like mad!

We came home & I kept checking in on that band, on 2 weather sites. That thing just kept hanging & hanging & the line of snow kept growing upwards, meaning it was going to continue to come down here. And it did, boy it did!

By the end of it, we ended up with over 18" of snow. It is pretty & cool, but I am so over snow this winter, it's not funny anymore.








Just a comparison with a mailbox view - never mind the ladybug. ;)
