The walk to the street.
It's about 2:30 in the afternoon, in one of the brief lulls in the ongoing snow. Lake effect snow is predicted to continue until 7:00 AM, Sunday morning, a little more than 16 hours from now. If the snow continues at the rate it has fallen for the last 20 hours, we will get our average, yearly snowfall in one 50 some hour period; approximately 80 inches. Even for South Bend, this is an unusual "Snow Monster".
At the end of December, we had a mid-winter thaw, that produced temps in the 50s, which melted all of our previous snow. We started a new snow layer on Thursday; Friday night, the monster really kicked in. Ahh, winter.
