That much snow should make the lake a bit larger. Win?

Honestly I was looking at first week of April to put in until all of this... now we'll be lucky to make first week of May!

28" up here near Labrador ski resort in New York State. At least 24" in Syracuse I think. We usually get clobbered. There is a reason why the Syracuse area gets the golden snowball award year after year. We are used to it. We just stay inside and bake cookies or something.

We had horrible snow and drifting here. I invested a lot in dealing with those conditions. Hardly a wisp since.

Best wishes to the north easterners! You folks have been down this road before...
So the moral of the story is to buy lots of snow gear. Then maybe it will stop. Lol!
Actually last year I bought snow shoes at the end of the year and didn't have to use them much until this year so maybe there is some truth to it.

Maybe 5 cm or 2 inches and hour north east of Toronto. What a load of hype for this area, were calling for some serious amounts....
I was impressed by the wind though, blew most of the snow off any flat surface and piled it against walls etc.
Have to check the boat tarp tomorrow, see if I still have one!

That is a horse head in the box. Not an alien!
