Zooming in on the ruler we can see that...
...yup, there was about 8.5" of snow on the driveway.
I had decided to bring some work home with me when I left the office last night specifically for this contingency. So I'm being productive without having to brave the elements today.
The street outside our house hadn't been plowed yet. It was driven over, but not clear. A plow finally came by around 2pm while I was out clearing the driveway.
I don't know if I'll bother going anywhere today. I don't have anywhere I need to go and I don't really feel like it anyway. So this snow isn't really much of an inconvenience for me. In fact, I'm kinda enjoying it. It's been a long time since we've had any sizeable accumulation like this. I kinda want to go play in it, but it's really dry fluffy snow...not very good for packing. Fortunately, however, that also made it easier to shovel.
