I’m thinking that’s a typo Gene. We had 21” on the level on Wed. and you’re not very far away. BTW, after I shoveled for about 4 hrs we left for the valley, until March. :-)

I figured it was too, that he meant 3 to 8, but I had to have some fun with it. But you guys got 21” in Arizona?? I didn’t think Arizona gets that much snow, thought we had a lock on it all up here. ;) We got nailed Wednesday with 1 to 14” (maybe 18”) depending how far you were from Lake Michigan. The farther you were, the more you got.

Roy must live close to Flagstaff. They got 21” that stranded several Elk hunters. Had to be rescued.
Nope, no typo. 3/8” drift. Barely covered the ground, gone by 10:00 am.

Jim,
Thanks for your concern. It was a bear getting the door open….ooops it opens in.
Had to spend an inordinate amount of time sweeping the sidewalk. :-))

BlankMan, spent a winter in Beloit. You are correct. 3/8 is nothin’.
Ah, Arizona. Great beaches…no water.

Hooky,
Many people love the snow.
I’m content to view it from afar. Only in pictures, even.
IMHO, you ain’t missin’ anything.
