WIMPS!
Boulder Valley schools were closed. You're somewhat right though, they're usually the last one to close.

Today's snow was really light. I shoveled our driveway by hand. If it were wet I'd be in traction right now.

Agreed, this was not heavy stuff. I couldn't even make decent snowballs, but at least it was easy to shovel.

So, not only did we get more snow in the southern burbs, it was wetter too? Not fair! This was back-breaking stuff!

I live in the Southern suburbs and I thought it was light. We got a lot of it but it wasn't heavy.

I tried out the new(to me) snow blower for the first time. Fun, but still need to learn how to aim that thing!

Yesterday was definitely a day where I wish I had a snow blower. I normally don't mind shoveling snow, but yesterday just sucked.

We recently switched to an electric snow blower to lower our maintenance and it works great. Also no noxious fumes to blow into the house or garage.

Ours is the heavy stuff. Nothing light about it.

Same here. It was all champagne powder. Clearing it was time-consuming, but not back-breaking.

We had a small electric snowblower. 3-4" of snow was its limit, though.
