I closed the office at 4 when I found out several highways were closed. Roads not cleared, but not slick. Did struggle in my driveway even with 4wd and good tires. 5-6" of white stuff in the driveway, with a lot of it ice apparently. Power back on though

Tractor wouldn't start, so I have to wait to blade the driveway. Got the charger on it. School is already called for tomorrow.

Still snowing hard here but they lowered the total to 6-8". It is supposed to stop around midnight. Now it's the big wait until the schools decide what to do. I'm hoping they make a decision tonight but I'm afraid they'll wait til morning to see if we end up on the low end of the total.

What's it like where you are?
We had sleet balls, snow, more sleet, more snow, then more sleet followed up with a dash of freezing rain.

DD took the ruler outside and it measured 3".

We ended up getting nearly 4 inches with a layer of ice on top. I woke DH extra early to shovel, and he doesn't think it's necessary. I'm not sure why he doesn't. I guess I'll just get out there myself and do it, since I KNOW it needs it.

Sigh, men.

So how much snow/ice did everyone get?

We got barely enough ice to say there was any. The roads were mostly fine this morning according to my husband. Most of our schools were only on a short delay. It's already nearing 50 here and everything we did have is already long melted.

We got ~7" total snow/sleet at our house ~ an hour West of STL. Co-worker who lives just a few miles from me got just 3". There's an elevation change about a mile from my house and every time it snows, there's a line where everyone on one side always gets a lot more than those on the other side. Probably 15 or 20 different times, I've seen a distinct line on the road (always at the same spot at the crest of a hill) where you can see it's rain on one side & snow on the other. We're on the side that always gets snow & more of it.
