We get a bunch of 'em each season, so for me, one of those is like, meh, here we go:

December 22-23: 10 inches
December 25: 10 inches
January 4: 18-24 inches (blizzard)
Yesterday: 7 inches

Oh by the way, any chance of changing my sub-username from "The Mighty" to "The Mighty Grumpy Mainer"?
I want to say a foot in one go is about a once a year experience here.

Yo subego,

Got any new snow pics with your iPhone X ?
This one time, at Boot Camp, I stuck a flute up my PC.

Dec 2015 was the last time we got more than 3" of snow until last Monday when we got 5-8". I finally had to pull the snowblower out of the basement for the first time this year.

Here’s a quick and dirty one...



Judging by the Erie pictures, this is only 30 inches.

We have had some snow, but then it rains. Rollercoaster weather. Not great for skiing.

Well, I'm underwhelmed with the Chicago snow.
Probably got 8" in the NW burbs.

I want my money back.

Its just tediously cold here. Probably not as cold as you lot, but then I have no heating so it sucks. No snow here in a couple of years I think. Maybe more.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

It hit 50 today in Indy. Tomorrow, the high is supposed to drop to 29 with either a frozen mix or snow. On the positive side, pitchers and catchers report next week.

Not an iPhone... you can tell by the lack of autocorrect.

I scooped it, if that counts as enjoying. The 5yo loves playing in the snow, he'll throw snowballs or shovels full of snow at my back while I snowblow.
