As we like to say around here:
On Friday, we woke up to 17 inches of fresh snow. Other parts of the Northland received over 2 feet as part of that same storm system. This latest snowfall brought our total snowfall for winter 2012-2013 up to close to 100 inches and we're predicted to receive another 3-6 inches tonight. Yay?
In case you're wondering - no we usually don't have this much snow this time of year. The ice on our lake usually goes out around May 6, so we've usually had a good few weeks of melting by this time most years. April snow showers are fairly common, but it's pretty rare that we would receive more than 6 inches in a single snowfall during this month. Today marks the fifth straight month of uninterrupted snow cover here. I wish I were kidding.
|17 iches, baby!|
One happy result of this massive snowfall was that we got to have a bonafide snow day on Friday. I'd completed all of my work for the week the day before and after a couple hours thinking he'd head into work once the roads were plowed (which was no easy feat!) Andy gave in and spent the day at home.
