Update 09:00: My waking estimate of 3" was conservative. After shoveling my steps, walkway and 250 square feet of sidewalk, I think we already have 5 inches on the ground.
More of the front yard:
And the backyard:
This is the Gardener's Nook in the corner. You can see the Winterberry in the container still has lots of berries on it.
This is the view from the second floor tree fort. This is a lot more open than in past years. Over the winter, our next-door neighbor had to take down their old maple in the middle of their backyard, and the apple tree which reached over the fence. Sad, but necessary.
Woke up this morning to find everything covered with a couple inches of snow.
And it's still falling. I'll try to get some pictures.
The National Weather Service is calling for 1-3 inches for my area. Yet they also have a winter storm warning in effect predicting 5-7 inches. Local news services are estimating 5 inches total, which seems more likely. It looks like we already have 3 inches on the ground.
