Over night we got another 4-5 inches and it is still coming down hard. The forecast is for another 7 to 9 inches before dinner this evening.
As much as I hate to have to do it, I will be out shoveling the drive way because once it warms up the snow will be so heavy I could hurt myself...I already have tendonitis (tennis elbow) in both arms and my left shoulder from years of computer work sad smiley

Here's a picture of the Canada/US border crossing which is normally 5 minutes from my house...

You're not the only one that can shovel, right? My small army of girls here are very good at it! eye popping smiley

My wife has worse tendonitis in here right shoulder and she can't even raise her arm above her shoulder without severe pain. My older daughter isn't in good enough health to help and the younger one hurt her back snow boarding the other day sad smiley
I may just leave it since we couldn't get a car out of the street if we wanted anyway sad smiley

The cars in this picture were bare when I went to bed and we are expecting double this amoutn to fall during the day eye popping smiley

We've had 18-20" over the past few days. The roads are snowpacked, the temperatures are frigid, the skiing has been nothing short of spectacular, and the iX has been out where it belongs, powering through the snow on the way up and down the mountain. Studded Hakka 4s help a lot. This car has the traction of a Jeep and the handling of a sports car.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Solstice, and Happy New Year everyone!

I wish only half of that would fall here. I've heard stories of winters with a meter of snow, I think I never saw more than 10 cm around here. I'm happy to take the disadvantages with it and I love the cold!

Temperatures are coming down here for the next couple of days, max 0°C during the day and up to -10°C at night, but no precipitation...
