42. 2-4 inches

Now, I didn't take a ruler outside or anything. And it really depended upon which station you listened to what the weather forecast was. Some said 1-3" - some 2" - 4" - and one even said 4" - 6". The last seems to have been the most accurate. As you can see by the picture, it sure wasn't done snowing then either! At some point, it is supposed to turn into sleet and then rain. Since the temp all day has hovered right around 20*F, it will have quite a ways to go before we will see rain.

And for the first time in two years, this happened:
We just haven't had enough snow the last few years (at one time) to justify bringing out the snowblower. But Bob decided to bring it out tonight. Timing worked out good. There is an older woman down the street. As far as I can tell, she lives alone. So her drive got taken care of tonight too. Dear woman - asked how much she owed, and Bob gently laughed. Now, in the picture, Bob is actually blowing snow off of the road. The plow drivers aren't the best around here. Which is exceptionally polite on my part. The intent was that if Bob took out a swipe of the road, the plow driver wouldn't be as able to plow in our driveway. Well, would you believe that his second trip down our street, he actually veered onto our side of the road so that the drive would be plowed in!!! Bob was outside and called him on it. The guy apologised and said he didn't mean to. Yeah - he actually had to change lanes to accomplish that, but it was an accident. He offered to come back tomorrow to help if we were still having problems with our driveway entrance.
