The Weather Service did a fine job in forecasting this event and we had plenty of time to get the necessary stores into the house before it started.
It started out with a light dusting at the break of dawn on the morning of the 24th and I went out and took my first pictures around 9 AM.
My second round of pictures were taken at noon. By now we already had 3 inches of snow on the ground and it was coming down pretty hard. Some areas even reported thunder and regional amounts of 5 to 6 inches were already reported.
Back out at 3 PM and I measured 5.5 inches of new snow. My last trip out that day was at 6 PM. It was still snowing although not quite as heavily as earlier in the day. The heavy, wet snow caused the shrubs and branches to bow under the weight. The wind started to pick up and we had drifts in excess of 12 inches already.
The last picture was taken the morning after. We were still getting the occasional flurry but for all practical purposes, the event was over. Local amounts ranged from 8 to 13 inches. My measurement showed an average of 9 in.
