24 inches and counting (Edit: Cancel the 24. See below.)

What's under there?

One of these:

Update, just outside the back-porch door at Newton at about 5 p.m.:

And that's not drifting - there's been very little wind most of the day. I tried to take a measurement in the front yard, but the snow was halfway up my thighs and I gave up.

Another update: the latest map from the Weather Service. Notice which area has the highest totals in the whole area?

We have about 10 to 12 inches of extremely heavy wet snow. It just switch to to rain about an hour ago and I think we'll get rain for another hour and then probably more snow. It's extremely windy and half an hour ago we lost power. Hopefully back soon or it will get very cold!

I just snowblowed (snowblew?) 16" of snow off the driveway for the second time today, so I'm saying 32" so far. The snow on the sidewalk is chest high (Thanks, Norwich! You suck.) so I did the short segment, and I may never do the long segment. The snowblower gets buried. I don't think I've ever seen so much snow in one storm, even in '93 and '78. It's an adventure! The Subaru is in the garage up at the lake. Will be fun getting that out.

Yikes, Caleb! Is the power back on yet? The difference between your snow and ours is that ours is light and weightless, not wet and heavy, so it might be close to the same amount of moisture content. But it's a heck of a lot of snow.
