We got a foot too - started off wet so all the pine branches are drooping. Got most moved last night - some cleanup today but not much. What a difference a day makes :o)

We got at least 14". Most of it fell between 12:30 and 4:00pm (that's when I was at the movies).

TG for dhs and snowblowers.

Only a few inches here in Farmington :( I know I should be careful what I wish for, but I've found that snow is such a good insulator for my roses and perennials. I really hope we get a bit more in the near future.

We had 5 inches, although some of it melted. But it's snowing again today. If "old snow" counts, it looks like the chances of a white Christmas here are very good.

Well, we will be having an ice Christmas here if the sun doesn't warm up and melt the slippery crust left by yesterday's storm.

Veilchen,

Our long term forecast here in Manchester calls for no snow for the next six days, a few snow showers December 23, mostly sunny with a high of 29 on December 24, and Christmas day cloudy with a high of 29. We could have a significant amount of melting between now and Christmas. I guess it is technically not Winter yet.

And the Winter Solstice is coming up--the days will be getting longer. I usually get excited about this every year (spring is coming!) but then promptly realize it's only the beginning of winter.

Dec. is usually mild for us, although this year the kids have already had 2 snow days. I hope that's not a sign of things to come. The real cold and nastiness begins in Jan. and continues all through Feb. At least in March we can see the light at the end of the tunnel (even if it is still snowing).
