Near as I can tell, we got around 4" but it's still coming down in waves, not real steady.  Just enough that I need to get out there and clean it up.  I'll have to figure out how I will fit work, overtime, taking care of my dad, taking my wife to get her staples out (from knee replacement) and plowing three driveways, all into one day.  Oh yeah, I have to go over to the church tonight and set up for Friday's fish fry.  I knew there was something I was forgetting.  Long story short, I really didn't need seat time today!  4" (maybe more, can't tell from the window)  doesn't sound like much (a mere dusting here) but with all the ice, things change.  Dad always tells me that I don't need to worry about his since he no longer drives.  I tell him, you're 90 and living on your own.  If you need the ambulance and it can't get in to get to you, I would never forgive myself.

We were predicted for a blizzard, 6-12". I only got maybe 1-2" at the house. Coworkers farther south near downtown Cincy got 3-4".
One of those time I was glad the weather people were wrong.

We are a decent clip from the road, 250 yards maybe.  So you don't get any of the dirty plowed snow around.  Behind us the woods go on for quite a ways.

Wish my neighborhood looked like that!

I wish that property was mine, but my good friend owns it and I can hunt, fish, ride ATVs, and stay there as often as I like, so it works out well for me I guess.

They are predicting 4"-7" around here. Got up the this morning around 7:30 with about an 1 1/2" on the ground, and now at 10:30, it appears that we are in the 3" range. Still coming down hard, with no end in site. It's supposed to snow all day, so I'm wondering if the initial prediction will be raised eventually.

Looks like a good day for some seat time!  :dancingbanana:

Roads are a mess.  Tried to get from the office, to a gas station with a pizza shop to pick up pizzas for the noon meeting.  Left at 10:30 got back at 11:30.  Should of taken 15-20 minutes tops. 

 

Tractor trailers are stuck all over on these side roads, and state routes.  Bad crash at the main intersection.  Several ambulances in and out.  Hopefully everyone was ok.

 

Had to go up around through a back road into the back side of the walmart only to encounter a stuck car hauler truck.  Decided to utilze my 4x4 and drove up a bank between the walmart and the road.  That worked, people were trying to follow me out.  Seen a soccer mom SUV try to make it only to have to back down.  No replacement for a real 4x4 truck.

They were predicting 3"-5" for us, well we currently have 4" and it's snowing at over 1.5" per hour, maybe more, hope it doesn't last long.

Once it moves on trough, it will warm some. I have 57° on the front porch and the gurus said it would only be ~40°.

As I posted in another thread, we got in excess of 12", possibly 14".  Just 20 miles north of me got 20 inches!!!  A confirmed 22.6" just another 8 miles north from there.  20 miles south/southeast of me got only 4 to 5".

Glad it went a little further North of you! We were on the Northern edge here of all the moisture!

Power is still out at the camp. Sleeping in the main cabin tonight. Buddy had to go home for the week so keep a firing burning and watching movies on my lap top

We were in the 3-6" band and ended up with 11". SURPRISE!
Roads are still a mess this morning. Driving on snow covered roads with no snow tires should be illegal.
