5" here maybe. Plenty of wind and drifting.

The wind started to scream down here last night and has not let up.  There was literally barely a dusting of snow last night and the local news folks made a giant deal out of it.  Now they are calling for a foot for us out of this next storm on Tuesday, that will be interesting.

Still lite snow with winds up to 50 mph, average is about 30 right now. 12 degrees here in Columbia falls. Looks like the maritimes are under the big gun. I'd bet there going to get hammered hard, good luck to them all and stay safe.

They just downgraded the storm. Looks like we missed the most of it.....until the next one.

It's windy here , but the snow is subsiding. Didn't get much more than 5" inches.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

We got pounded here. Around 18" of snow, then got warm and rained for a bit. A lot of the main roads in Halifax flooded because the storm drains are blocked and now the temp is back down to well below freezing. Roads are skating rinks. They are asking everyone to just stay inside for the next 24hrs.

From what I have seen it hasn't been a very nice winter for you guys Ryan. The roads have to be a mess now after all that rain and then the freezing.
