I measured an overnight snowfall of 13.5 inches. And it should be considered official because I used my Mary Ellen Hopkins Magic Circle yardstick. That's Pasteur Mountain (part of the Blue Ridge) in the background.
Here's my snow shoe trail heading around the side of the house. Snow shoes are hard work--putting them on, that is. This is the second time I've been able to use them and I definitely do not have a system for putting them on. But I did make my way around the house to clear snow from around the heat pumps, the heated bird bath, and some of the drain spouts. I came back inside hoping Tommy wanted to call a staff meeting, but no such luck.
