It's nerve-wracking being right on the northern edge of this thing.  Sharp cutoff somewhere between MKG and GRR.  Already got 2" of new powder from light snows last night.  I'll be happy if this next batch can drop a quick 6 inches.  Depends on how fluffy it is.  DGZ is plenty deep if a nice back-edge band sets up as the system wraps up tonight.

It's also nerve-wracking to be on the eastern edge of this thing. The further west it goes, the less optimistic I'm getting.

If it makes you feel any better, you've already got 2" more than I've got.

I'll take the under...it'll be close though.

crazy that the under could still also be 20cm tonight followed by 15cm Thursday night haha. 

 Whats the snow depths like in the GTA? I asked my parents for the Mississauga measurement and they said maybe 1-2" I doubted that a bit but NOAA snow maps support that with trace to 2" for the southern GTA. Around my backyard I average around 5" depth here.

2:45pm Indianapolis: 14f, snow, 17mph N 

the drifting is going to be quite an issue tonight. Local mets are starting to use the blizzard word. Don’t know if it’ll technically be that bad, but it’s pretty ferocious out there currently and the heavy stuff is still to our SW.

It's like spring-summer frustration with the t-storms.  Missing the bullseye by 10 miles and getting a nothingburger doesn't usually happen in the winter.

While I'll admit I'm aggravated by missing thunderstorms in the summer, especially if we need the rain, i'd rather miss a thunderstorm any day of the week.

It's pretty common here IMBY to miss both t-storms and major lake-effect events by 40 miles or less... over and over again.  Often close to the action, but have to chase to actually get to it.
