We opened the front door and saw the snow piled up on top of our garbage can.
Using the ruler method we saw on the news, our front step had about 5 inches of snow at that point.
Jess and her boots braved the measuring of our sidewalk.
It measured about 7-8 inches.Our landlord's son had come sometime earlier in the day to plow out our driveway as best he could, so it had only accumulated about 3 more inches.
The drift by our mailbox measured about 11 inches.
Our neighbor Rose (who lives downstairs) had not done any shoveling yet, so her step had about 9 inches or so.
My car didn't get much more covered than what you see here - the drifts accumulated with about 1-2 feet away from my car, so it wasn't too hard to shovel her out in the morning. The right side you see here had about 1-2 feet just piled against the side of the car, but the top wasn't too bad.
