Snow and more snow...

This has been a very cold season so far, which in turn means we will get a lot of snow from Lake Superior.  It just hasn't stopped snowing... So far over 80 inches (203 cm) of snow has fell since October!

Another 30 inches has landed since this photo was taken...
If anyone is interested... here's the latest snowfall measurement.  This is cumulative, so as more snow lands it tends to compress the snow beneath it, as well as some evaporates by sublimation due to the sub zero temperatures. So the "on the ground" depth varies with terrain and drifting.  The National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration plots this here.  We have somewhere around 24 in (60 cm) on the ground at the moment. 

Have a great week everybody!
