    Well, about a foot and still counting in the Pioneer Valley (also known as Happy Valley and Paradise!)...

    tough for a little dog to pee when the snow is taller than her....so the webmasters better 1/2 is shoveling out a place for her!

    We got almost nothing on the coast. Bummer. I bet they'll be good skiing in the Berkshires this weekend.

    I was out plowing when it changed over to rain for about 20 minutes 20 minutes later the most intense snow and wind combination
    I have ever been out in. Just could not see, complete whiteout, I have never experienced any snow situation, this intense. I stopped plowing and headed home. After the rain and the past small storms there was ice underneath. Absolutely some of the worse conditions I ever have experienced Can't see sliding everywhere Even in 4X4 drive 4/5'" one minute 3 hours later 15" Thunder lighting, man was that intense, Wind gust ot 50/60 mph. Almost no warning all of a sudden it happened

    Meanwhile, on the coast, they closed all the schools in anticipation of a snowstorm... and it didn't snow. Not a flake. But, we did get about 45 minutes of heavy wind, which measured 45-50 knots at the house, and knocked over 4 large (12') bushes and 1 cedar tree on my property. Oh, and it loosened a Linden tree so much that I'll be cutting it down this spring, its now on a 30 degree angle from vertical. Should get me about a cord or so. :)

    About 2.5" here in central Ohio. It snowed like mad and then just quit.

    A far, far cry from the "white death" of the predicted 4"-6" with freezing rain.

    Many of the schools around here called off the night before, only to awaken to completely clear roads. Burning up snow days early is bad business come June.

    The meteorologists really screwed the pooch on this one!
