More than a foot of snow in the driveway (maybe even a foot and a half), about 8 inches on the sidewalks, and a nice 2-foot crust of dirty, compacted snow in the street.

We had to shovel that, to get the cars out of the driveway. One solid hour of dedicated shoveling and we managed the job. Plus our neighbor's walkway, plus digging out another neighbor whose truck was stuck pretty tight.

Add that to last night's walk home (a little more than an hour uphill 2 miles through pretty heavy snow with fogged glasses and with a modest backpack) and what do you get? A big bowl of ice cream!

Some cocoa, too. With lots of marshmallows.
