The Snow that came up the eastern seaboard last Friday was not wanted or needed. We got fairly lucky where we lived. In looking at the weather maps, at times, the border between snow and rain went right down the street where I drive.
We got mostly snow with some sleet thrown in, but no actual rain.
In total we received about 7-8 ” of snow and a week later it is still here. Twenty miles north of us they got 20 inches. We’ve had a couple of days of upper 30’s in temp but it just helped to melt the snow on the road.
Our street was not plowed except by the cars driving over it.
Yesterday after about 6 days here are some icicles on the roof of the solarium.
The icicles started forming at the edge and then the snow/ice slid down the glass roof. It caused this formation.

As you might be able to see in the background of that picture and some of the following, the biggest damage seems to be the Holly trees that are growing on the edge of some of the clearings. The Holly trees keep their leaves all year long.
The snow seems to hanging in there pretty well.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy and Blessed New Year.
