Just updated, they were saying we got quite a bit less Than I thought I had at home. I never actually put a tape to it, but guessed 9-10" in Newton They have it at 10.5"

Now they have it close to right. Looks like Lyall has the most in the state at this point.

They were saying this morning this won't quit till tomorrow morning and there is another one coming Monday and Tuesday of next week.

Stay warm and safe JD. That much snow makes driving dangerous and can take down power lines.

Even though it is a bit deep, I'm sure folks are happy for some moisture there!

I would guess that we got about 4 inches of snow from that storm.. Real wet and heavy.. I'm glad that we are starting to get some moisture back from the drought last year.

Yes Kenny we need the moisture. They were saying on the radio on the way to work this morning that we needed 16 inches of rain to get subsoil moisture back to normal. I would much rather see it come as warm spring rains though.

That is true, but hopefully the snow will soften things so the rain can soak in.
