I'd say about 7" in Stapleton.

Just measured 11" on my patio table and still dumping here in Highlands Ranch. I have shoveled once and I will probably shovel again here as soon as it tapers off a bit. My office and DCSD are both closed so my daughter is loving it. I wish I could work from home like this at least once a week.

Yep. Everybody is home here today, too. My spouse has set up shop on the desk in my high schooler's room and is listening in on a conference call. My youngest is out shoveling. High schooler is camped out in front of the TV watching Netflix, but I'm about to call that to an end, because I know she has five tests/quizzes facing her between now and Friday. I've been cooking up a storm. I love days like this, where everybody is here and quietly industrious, but I don't like it when it goes on too long. More than two days, and we all start to get testy.

Sent the kid out with a yardstick. Ten inches and still flurrying. The plows have been through once, but the roads are still covered. It is so quiet! All the road noise is muffled from the snow, and given the chill and overcast skies probably will be for the rest of the day. As soon as it starts melting, I'll hear the cars again. Traffic is moving fairly well on the hill outside my kitchen window, but I've only seen AWD vehicles out and about. Those whose cars would struggle to handle the conditions are wisely choosing to stay home.

I just went down to SW metro. Roads down there were eerily empty.

Snow is several inches above my ankles. Drifts are over two cinder blocks high. It's a beautiful mess.

DH just measured in our back yard and front yard. Consensus? 11". BTW, Louisville was mentioned on the "Today" show, the national part as having 13.5". Funny, we usually get the most in town up here on the top of the hill.

I would say about 8 inches for me, although unfortunately, the drifts at the end of my driveway were over a foot. At least I'm getting better at aiming the snowblower! Although I can't figure out how to aim it to try to clear the alley - it either goes back onto my driveway or a neighbor's driveway.

Every year I justify buying a snow blower more and more. Aging will do that you.

I think if I see a neighbor out with his, he should offer to do the whole block, no?

I have an electric snowblower, hard to do anything but my own driveway with it! :-) Definitely recommend getting one though - it's not necessarily a time saver but it made the job soooooo much easier! I would guess for a sidewalk or in a house with more room between driveways, it probably saves more time, but I had to be very careful about placement and worked in smaller swatches. But still very, very glad to have it.
