The snow has not let up in roughly 30 hours. The mounds of snow shoveled from people's driveways are now several feet high. Residential streets -- if they have been plowed at all -- have been narrowed to one lane.
I shoveled snow higher than my knees this morning, then snow above my ankles this afternoon when I got home from school, and another couple of inches had fallen by the time I arrived home after an evening outing.
I noticed a tree in the backyard that really needed to be shaken free of the extra weight, lest it collapse, so I trudged into the yard with a rake. Afterward, I measured to where the snow came on my pants: just over 2 feet. That's quite a bit for one storm.
