If winter wasn't here before, it certainly hit us last night. With blizzard like conditions starting in the early afternoon and continuing though out the night, the mid west is covered in a heavy blanket of
pretty white stuff. Okay, I will admit, it is sort of pretty.
I have yet to hear an official total amount. Due to the conditions, the way the wind blew, I'm sure that is pretty difficult to measure. It's safe to say, that there is a ton of snow. I don't remember ever having this much pour down all over the course of one night. Several days, maybe, but this was literally ten hours.
Our backyard was nearly impossible to get to. I actually lifted the beauties over the fence. They didn't even have to walk around the wall, they just walked over it.
