I've been saying all winter to "bring on the snow". I'm afraid I've put my foot in my mouth (again my DW would point out).
We are out of room to put snow. Some of the driveways I clear have 10 foot banks, no exaggeration. The snow blower won't throw the snow over the banks anymore. The snow just blast into the side of the bank and then comes down back into the driveway like an avalanche.
Hopefully the nice weather we have experienced over the last few days has settled the banks down enough so that we will be able to clean up after today/tonight's pending storm.
Hope everyone is keeping warm and safe.

To those spreading rumors that spring is just around the corner, just remember; In 2007, April was our snowiest month! As I posted back around December:

Mainers defy winter.
Mainers define winter.
Mainers defile winter.
Mainers do not deny winter.

The snow banks aren't really that big in this area and I'd say the snow in the woods is about 2 1/2 to 3' hard packed. We skidded some pulp with the ATV sunday and muddied up the road pretty good. Frost doesn't seem to be to deep in the woods and there was hardly any frost under the log pile

I was planning a trip to Maine last spring - to leave April 6. Wasn't the 7th the day you guys got a huge snowstorm up there? I had to postpone my trip for reasons I won't go into. Though I was hugely disappointed, I cannot imagine trying to find my way up there in that snowstorm! I need some practice driving in the snow and ice before venturing hundreds of miles of Maine roads in blizzard conditions. But I still want to see a couple feet of snow. Maybe I can head up toward the mountains and still see significant snow accumulation if I make it up there in April this year. So has this big snowstorm hit any of you guys yet? I look forward to seeing more pics on the "Maine photos" thread.

I'm just feeling like we're going to miss out once again down here we're forecast for 5-8".....that's the "high" estimate.....but the last few storms we've had the changeover so early that we don't get the accumulation! I'm still waiting for that truckload from Bydand!!

MW how much more do you have up there than Calais?

7-12" more here. When I go out to close all the doors I'll jab the ruler into the snow. I've been walking on top of it so nicely that I haven't paid attention to how deep it is anymore.

I have a metal bar in the front yard that sticks out of the ground 36 inches. This morning there was 14 inches showing. I wonder how much will be showing arouind noon tomorrow? The NWS says 1 to 2 inches an hour after midnight.
