OK...here is what happened at my house at 9,300 ft:

Snow started overnight Wed and kept snowing most of the day Thurs. My wife I and got out and shoveled one side of the front deck Thurs to get a jump-start.

Today I think there was about 3 feet on the driveway, road, deck, etc. I slowly walked to the tractor to plug in the heater. 30 min later it started right up. 30 min after that the hydrolics where warmed up so I got started moving snow. It was a wet snow and the ground under it was wet (not too fun). I was plowing from about 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM, but that included three neighbors. We all have big piles now.

My road has not been plowed by the county yet - perhaps tomorrow. No mail delivery either. I did drive down to the newspaper boxes and got a soggy paper. The paved road 1/2 mile from my house has been plowed by the county, so I know we're not too far away from being done.

Was this a big storm? YES. Does this happen a lot or even every year? NO. The last storm like this was in March 2003. The power stayed up during the whole thing, as did the phone. My DSL went out for about an hour Thurs, but that was it.
