The wind is blowing like crazy here right now and the snow is coming down so hard it's a whiteout. Wild. No thundersnow yet though.

We have about 18" so far, and I expect to lose power at any time. All of the trees and wires are incredibly heavy with snow at this point and I can hear them snapping when I go outside.

I may be stranded here shortly without heat and power.

If the 45MPH plus winds they are predicting come, it may be a very long time before I can get out of here. And days before I have power back.

It's getting very real right about now.

Yikes, yes. If this keeps up, I might not get to work tomorrow either. After a neighbor used his snowblower earlier today to clear my driveway, it has drifted over and I've been plowed in to the tune of about 4 feet. And the wind....

Just had a momentary whiteout - couldn't see the barn from my house (about 100" away).

They downgraded our snowfall totals. In my area we're only going to get an inch or so.

The thundersnow hasn't returned, and the wind is quiet at the moment. But I can only see a few hundred feet from the house.

The wind is coming back.

You may get your wish, this is way too much winter for PA. This stuff belongs in DF's neck of the woods.

This storm puts us over the top, making this the snowiest winter on record - ever.

And, a new storm is predicted for monday...

El Nino is the cause of all this. Still doesn't help us much in CA when about a billion gallons of water a day are not being pumped from the delta to the resivor because of inch long smelt.

What I took to be the crack-boom of thunder was actually one of our neighbor's trees falling right where I normally park my car. I'm so glad I decided to park on our other driveway. *wipes brow*

It's still windy and snowing (another 7.5" today), and tomorrow will make it a full week since I've been to class. Hooray for early spring break? :mellow:

This snow is unrelenting. We haven't even gotten the worst of it where I'm at. Just going down to Altoona, they've got double what we have.
