or maybe snowdepthometer? Yeah it's a big 'un. It seems to be stopping at about 20 inches but it's still coming down pretty hard. I'm guessing it's just packing in on itself.

I think most places here are close to the 2-foot mark.

Here's another one of her having a total blast although it's a pretty bad quality image. But I like it because she's having sooooo much fun.

Sounds like quite a storm, Mel. It would be cruel to tell you that it'll be sunny and mid 60's here today, so I plan to take the convertible for a cruise after my bicycle ride - so I won't .

Seriously, I hope the weather eases soon and that you can get out with your camera and post the great pictures that are your trademark.

Merry Christmas.

Thanks all. I went out a little this morning but the main job was digging the cars out from under the snowplow's work. The snow was up to the labrador's shoulders and she had to jump over it to get anywhere. It's pretty funny to watch. It's not supposed to get above freezing today so it'll be around for a bit

As far as airports go, yesterday there was one runway open between the two major airports and interstate 95 was reported as shut down. That almost never happens. It was pretty bad. We're all hunkered in and cozy with lotso good treats. Something about the snow that makes me want cookies . . . lol

Fun one wasn't it Mel? I didn't see your post until after I'd posted my own thread otherwise I'd have just added here. My daughter's dog was loving our back yard this afternoon.

Ozzy, my daughter's dog, likes to submarine under it. He shoves his nose in and runs as hard as he can to go under. Funny to watch but hard to catch on film. The above shot was him coming up for air. LOL
