In the end, the Blizzard called Jonas dumped exactly 24"--2 feet--of powdery snow on our home. It took the three of us 4 hours to dig out on the first day, then over the next three days, I had two more sessions of about an hour each to clear our second circular driveway and the paths around our house. It was way to thick for sledding, so I used the show-thrower to cut a double wide path up the hill where we usually do our sledding... leaving about 4-5" of snow for a sledding track.
Snow always gives us cravings for hearty meals... so one night it was home made meatballs and pasta, and the next night it was my special French Onion Soup recipe, based on the one from Julia Child.
It was very late for snow this year but I have a feeling it won't be the last storm...
