Looks like Ames really lucked out compared to surrounding areas. Several reports of 6-7" in town, with 4" east/west of us where subsidence from the one good band decreased their totals a bit. Essentially any road outside of the city is considered impassable right now.

I'm guessing the owners of that middle house are in Key West  for the winter?

Gusting 35-40mph up here already.

 

I wish so bad I could get out and look around town but I'm stuck at home...nothing is plowed. I haven't seen a single car go by.

Kinda starting to gust here a bit more. Not a single vehicle down my road since sometimes early evening. Before this is all over, I might be approaching 95-100” in 24 days. I love it

can tell by radar, enhancement is picking up

Just had a screen tear off a window and blow away, lol. Winds really kicking up - I hear that weird moaning sound from the house that only happens when you have winds well over 40mph.

I live literally on the top of the spine of the keweenaw so in almost all directions there's essentially no wind breaks coming off the lake.

The wind here has been howling since 1am.  The CR airport has reported a max gust of 60 mph.  There is very little snow to blow around here, though, as we only picked up a dusting overnight.  There is still a substantial snowpack, but it's rain-soaked and frozen so it can't blow around.

Was that it for the winds?  Pretty meh.  All that snow Up Der is just bananas.  Lots of homeowners insurance claims to commence soon.

Ground blizzard conditions have closed I-35 from Ames to the MN border today. Basically every road outside town is closed.

One of the most insane pictures I have ever seen. I’m drooling. Is this your deepest depth since you moved there? Another foot to go? Goodlord

Two neighbors out blowing snow. Heck with it. I am going to wait until the wind goes down tomorrow. They can stick it where I work. I will be in when I am in. Notice my one furnace vent getting covered. Luckily I have a window over it and was able to stick a shovel out the window to get it cleared. Keep going to get around making the pipe higher. I caught some kind of bug. Very weak and tired today don't really want to climb the bank of snow to get back there.

I have ridden my sled to some pretty remote parts of the Huron's, and I've seen some deep snow of 5' or so before, but in the 6 years I've lived here, never have I come across snow as deep as it is right now.  There's trees that were bent over from the ice storm a few weeks ago, now their tree tops are getting buried in the snow pack.  17z hrrr still shows a narrow swath of a foot through here too. Howling, horizontal snow currently.
