23" and still coming down (along with two trees)
We woke up this morning to 23" of snow on the ground - it was about 12" when we went to bed.
Woke up at 6am to no power - don't know how long it had been off but it wasn't cold yet, so it must not have been long. It came on again right before 8am.
Mike headed out to shovel, with Michael for a while and now with Samantha. And when Samantha looked out her window, she noticed a tree down in the backyard. What she didn't realize is that it was TWO trees. The two main ones on that side of the yard. I guess the snow, rain, snow, more snow, and wind was too much for the roots - they are definitely uprooted and I see the roots coming up out of the snow.
So, after the snow cleanup, we'll have tree cleanup we have to tackle!
