She's dropped back to 36 here, still raining but freezing kind, that north wind has some bite.  ;D

Just 10 here this morning!

Been snowing all night, and still coming down, there's around 8 - 10 inches on the garage roof now, there was none there yesterday afternoon!

I just wish it had gotten cold before the snow started adding up!

UPDATE 7:35:  Just took mail out to the box, the snow was almost to the top of my boots, boots are 14"!
The snowplow just went up through, now the snowbank at the road is a little over 2 feet high!
I'll be out there for a while clearing what we have, and it's still coming down heavy!

6 F here right now, yesterday mid afternoon we had 62 F and light rain. Been snowing all night. A week ago we had -15, then yesterday and the day before it was real warm, now super cold again. The body can't adjust to changes that fast. This is weather that often gets people sick (not just sick of it).

Wooohooo!!!!!!!!!!! We're up to -21C and no nasty wind so far. Feels tropic after -44C.

I was in MN, WI, and SD with my son the last few days and that was some bitter cold down there with the wind. I won't complain about our wind for a while. Here you might hold the wheel over slightly to correct (while driving) but down there I think I might have been holding the wheel a half turn or so?  ;D

Finally got the driveway cleared!

We ended up with 12" of snow!

So, the snow-cover is back, just wish the ground would have stiffened up before that much snow!

More snow and cold. Our seasonal snowfall total stands at 142 inches and climbing. Farther north in the high Country some places are approaching 200 inches....

We've lost over 2 feet of snow pack here, bare like mid April.  And some nice frozen glaze over everything now. ;D

Clear skies and -15 this morning. Plenty of snow depth here. Cows were walking in the tractor tracks yesterday and the snow was half way to their backs... Guessers are calling for more normal temps near 20 by the end of the week.
