That was the old days with the nipher gauge.  They switched to a snow saber about 5 years or so and they've been fine since (Dare I say maybe even a bit generous with their measurements at times?).  I'm about 10 minutes from the airport and that report is not crazy. 

Didn’t know that actually thanks for letting me know. Wonder if we get more snow late this week than this system. Looks like lake effect potential is good?

IMG-4290.jpgWhat it looked like around 4am when I got up to use the bathroom. It's been fun watching that SUV slowly turn into a "snowmobile" over the last couple of weeks. 

Remarkable. Could I share your photo on a different weather site?

Been outside much of the morning cleaning up and just taking it all in.  What can I say.  I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.  Just an incredible sight to see so much snow on the ground.  Took some depth measurements and averaged out right around 24".  It is sort of hard to believe that I am here and not somewhere else like a snowbelt.

I don't think there's a word in the English language to describe what I feel looking at this..."jealous" would be the closest approximation.

Crazy depths around Chicago. Depths gotten quite nice here in Southeast Michigan as well. East Side has the deepest snow right now. Snow depth in SE MI vary anywhere from 11 to 18". We had 15" here this morning, 14" at Detroit, 15" White Lake, 13" ann arbor, 16" bad axe, 17" Richmond.  As mentioned above the 17" snow depth in Toledo is their deepest since 1978. We however had deeper snow in 2014 & 2015.

Snow came down harder than I expected last night.  Difficult to measure though as the wind whipped not only the new snow but older layers as well.  Only measured about 5" new on average, but it's probably like 12:1 ratio since the wind did such a number on it.  That's on top of the 2" from the night before, so at least 7" total.  Definitely not fluff anymore though.  Drifts were hard to shovel.  Total depth on the ground is now around 17" IMBY, including the hard packed stuff at the bottom.  It's over 20" in some places though, both due drifting and old crust from January that didn't melt completely everywhere.
