Here’s a little secret. Snow is tough to quantify. I’m not just talking about forecasting amounts–a nightmare. This is more about deciding how much is actually on the ground.
Get two inches Monday, two on Tuesday, two on Wednesday and I can guarantee you’ll have less than six inches of snow! Snow settles.
On the other hand plowing the snow will make sure you will surely have piles that are higher. I can attest to that!
On my way home from today’s FedEx run I stopped to gaze and capture a few shots that put the snow into proper perspective.
The black object in the first shot is our mailbox! The snow near Helaine’s SUV is at least midway up the car’s windows.
