Snow is part of Michigan winters. And that includes the occasional snow storm. The Big One last Wednesday was a bit overhyped in my area, and, as with all things overbyped, it did not live up to the predictions. In my area, we got about 6 inches of snow.
So, the snow fell. It piled up on top of the previous inches-- I think there was about 6 inches from prior snowfalls currently on the ground.
My driveway was complete obscured by the falling and blowing snow. I'm standing next to my garage. The road is past the fence. This driveway is only marginally longer than average.
Yes, we have a snowblower.
Also absent from the roads were snow plows. I live on a main road heading into one of the two larger towns in the county. Well, it's called a city, but it's not very big. (I know, it's a term that defines local government size and function more so than population size and density.) Anyway, usually this road is one of the first and best plowed, being that about a mile away it turns into Main Street. But even at 1 in the afternoon, the road is still snow covered.
Not bad though. One could easily get around in this sort of snow fall. I don't care much for driving in snow-- but that's just because other drives don't have the sense to slow down and exercise caution.
I happen to like when the snow comes down and the world is quiet. It's peaceful. There's nothing quite like the barely perceptible sound of snow falling-- yes, it has a sound.
