Holy crap, do we ever have snow.
I just checked the snow totals and it says that (as of 11AM today) Willoughby had gotten 10 inches of snow. It's now 3 PM and snow has been coming down at a rate of 1 - 3 inches per hour. It's not expected to stop until tomorrow morning. There are also crazy winds blowing snow around (sideways) and creating deep snowdrifts. Lake County is currently a Level 2 snow emergency, meaning people shouldn't really go out unless it's absolutely necessary. We watched our neighbor across the street get stuck pulling out of his own driveway. He and his son dug the truck out, decided whatever errand they wanted to run wasn't worth it, and went back inside. I don't think they've plowed our street since last night so it's a good thing we stocked up on beer and toilet paper.
Every time Mike walks into the living room and looks out the window he exclaims, "Oh, hey, look! It's snowing!" He also reminded me that it could be worse, "We could be in Hawaii and all that white stuff could be lava, you know." Funny guy.
I'll post a few photos later, but at the moment we're having trouble opening the back door.
UPDATE: I managed to push open the back door about 8 inches and squeeze out, only to find that I couldn't actually see the back steps anymore. The whole outside world now looks like a collection of white amorphous lumps of various sizes. We took five photos before I gave up and went back inside. It's crazy out there!
Snow up to my knees.
Dude, where's my car?
