Our Januaries usually have 68" of snow. That is not a typo: we really SHOULD be under a thick blanket. The snowfall comes from Lake Michigan, of which we are its southeast shore. The white stuff comes down daily, usually, and usually only an inch or two, with maybe one to three storms that make up the difference to become 68".
This month, as part of a highly unusual season, has had maybe 8-12", and it mostly melted by the sun's warm rays. Well. The clouds must have realized they were in deficit for the month, and now are hurrying to make their quota. We received about 20" over the weekend, and are due up to another 10" through tomorrow.
