    I'd guess we're over a foot now, probably around 14 inches... with the wind clearing off some areas and causing drifting in others
    it's hard to get an exact measurement.

    What I really don't get watching some footage from the night, 50% of the cars seem to be AWDs and nobody can drive straight or even halfway forward on FLAT roads with 2 inches of snow...raduculus...everybody running slicks over there? :unsure:

    I saw that here last week when we got about 18 inches of snow with white out conditions guy coming through the parking lot where I work missed the turn and wound up on the other side of the road and in the ditch. Of course he had an SUV they forget to drop gears and go full speed.

    I actually hit a couple ice patches in atl this morning.

    It wasn't bad enough to react to, though. AWD ate it up.

    We actually got nothing. About a 20 minute dusting last night, which was gone by this morning.
    Went out to work at 6am this morning, temp was about 29ish.
    Didn't see anything, it was just really windy.

    Still pretty windy here. No snow tonight, though.

    My mother-in-law even reported flakes in Savannah, GA. It almost never snows there. Nothing stuck, of course.

    We've only got about 5" here in the Boston area. Really no big deal.

    Agree with some that it's the people that cause the problem.in Britain we get all sorts of weather but whenever it gets a tiny bit frosty or snowy all hell breaks loose. Alot more idiots hit the roads and forget how to drive and the shelves in shops clear faster than my bowels after a curry. Last time we had snow a guy down our street got stuck by driving to fast, a couple of us went out to help, it took us ages to dig him out and push him to his drive. All his we were doing this he was reving the engine and wheel spinning. Eventually we got him free and on his drive, he just got out his car and not even a wave just walked straight in his house and closed the door what a 'censored merchant banker'. Anyway hope all on the other side of the pond are safe. Rant over

    According to Reuters, it was pretty bad from DC to NY.

    Oh....you're from California...

    You know that clear stuff that comes in bottles from gas stations and stuff?

    Sometimes, outside of CA, it falls from the sky. Occasionally, if it's cold enough, this falling "water" freezes and takes on a crystalline structure.

    We call it snow.

    If a snowstorm was about to hit cali, the dispensaries would sell out quicker than super markets.
    People would flock to get their supplies in a frenzy.
