The magnitude and ferocity of this storm is hard to describe. It started gently enough, but as we hit the main portion of the storm, it snowed as hard as I’ve seen it. It left five foot drifts in the back yard and the similar in the driveway. The strongly whipping winds piled snow high in some places, and left almost nothing elsewhere. The trees lining the driveway left a wind protected walkway that was very useful. The crows enjoyed the feast left on the ground from the winds. The next morning, the storm was still clearing out.
