Question Snow Day

Not that I work or Anything, but definitely not going anywhere today. Saw someone without winter tires having a tuff time to get going, he went back and forth about 8 times.
So far we have 9" of snow on top of my roof by 11:00 am.
More to come!

Unhappy

UPDATE: 5:00 pm.

Snow just about stopped. Close to 12" on Roof. I will not clear the car area yet. It will still be blowing overnight. I'll take more pics tomorrow morning and post them. The roof antenna should be totally covered by tomorrow!
Pics Attached.
My Wagon now looks like a MiniVan!

Lake effect at first, then system came from USA.
Some places north of me got almost twice as much, due to lake effect.

No more snow since last pic and the wind didn't really appear.
Apparently we got between 33 and 40 cm of snow in the region. 33 cm = 13 inches.
The snow plow finally came overnight. Took 2 measurements at driveway end (both in inches).
The engine bay was dry as a Fart!
Pics attached.
I'm sure you guys in Northeast USA are getting blasted! Post your pics here!
Today is a great sunny day.

That must have been a huge job digging out. But man, is it pretty!
