The big storm affecting the northeast was more of a coastal even, thus we here in south-central PA got brushed. My accumulation was perhaps 5" max.
So, being retired, I can pick and choose when I clear my driveway: gone are the days of getting up at 0-dark-thirty to get the driveway open before work, so that it could finish melting during the day. See, we're on a hill and partly shaded, so I need to maximize whatever solar benefits I can get.
Back to this snowfall. I call it "a good day of snowblowing" because I went out there with 9 fingers and came back with 9. The background story is here if you care to read it.
Also, 2 of our kitties went out in the snow, but when only one came back right way I went tracking (otherwise she was likely to sneak into the attached shed when I got the snowblower out, from which she is hard to coax out).
I followed her tracks from her exit point of the house, around the house clockwise, with a pit stop in a flower bed. She meandered back and forth but stayed in very close proximity to the house. In a matter of a couple minutes I saw her at the end of the tracks I was following and called softly, whereupon she came running to be "rescued" from the snow.
