Well... Last week it snowed for 2 days and I got between 72-88 inches.  Was snowing again today and expected to get another 2 feet.
You guys should take all the snow you can get out there and hopefully recharge your water source by spring time. ;D

ljojnsaw, now that is some snow, Something went on way back in '69. I was only about 8 years old, so I had a grand time climbing on top of the shed roof, about 10 feet high and jumping off into the snow.
I have 30. Looks like the single numbers are coming back, but again, high noon will be almost 20.

Mist of rain coming down now. Got the snow cleared off anyway. ;D I'd say 3" of snow tops, fell last night.

12' for the year.  I haven't been up lately but probably 6'.  On the weather last night the state average snow pack was at 30% two weeks ago.  One big storm and a small one put the state average up to 70%.  I think they said north state (me) was at 60-something % now.  Last storm down south was supposed to drop two years worth of water for them.  Lots of water but not a lot of snow!

About 10" of snow today and calling for a bunch more of lake effect over the next few days. Temps are supposed to drop to Zero for high temps for the next while. Windchills are expected to drop to -40 at times over the next couple days. 

Moved the cattle deep into the woods for some shelter today before things went downhill.

Was up to 29F yesterday and no melting much, except in the gravel. I think a little bit of snow over night here, 24F.

Tippy, the fox, was around just before dark. She's been milling around the snow in the yard at night for mice since January. She might have gotten the odd chicken from the local coups. Gotta make a living.  ::)

Grey clouds most of the winter, never seen it so overcast as much as this winter. Not a lot of snow in them clouds, just like no rain in them clouds all summer. ::)

A dusting night before last and probably another inch last night. Just nuisance snow, has to be shoved off or over time they pack and become ice. ::)  30F here this morning. Never seen none of that cold reported in areas not that far off. I must be on a warm 'micro climate island' (new term) or something because I know what 30 below feels like. Never really had a 'cold' winter here since 2008. Yeah OK, 20 degrees is still cold to sit in a rocking chair if you have no stove or heavy wool blanket around ya. :D

Ended up with about 16" of snow and now the wind has piled it up into 4 and 5 foot drifts. 4 with the windchill its well below zero. Looks to remain this way for the next week.

Meanwhile UP here I haven't been able to see the dusk to dawn light on my shop from the house (250 feet away) since last Thursday. Lol. The dang snow is piling up and blowing around.

Temp dropped to -5 by this afternoon and the wind was steady at 35mph and gusts to 65mph. The walk to the mailbox and then the shop was brutal.

Stars overnight here, down around 14F I think. But the day will look much like above photo by noon since another little snow storm is on it's way. :D
