We got walloped!

12 1/2 inches when I went out to shovel on Friday.

18 inches by Saturday morning.

You know, when it's this heavy, it ought to be good packing snow by default.  It really should.  Yesterday it didn't pack at all.  Today after the sun came out, it did a little, but not really enough.  At least it was still fun to play in, and today was warmer than yesterday, so Zaxxon lasted longer.

However, it was so deep that simply shoveling a path through it made for fun houses and channels.  I spent a while trying to build a "house," and hubby trumped me simply by digging a path to the composter.
