we never believe our weather forecasters here. they are the only job on the planet that can get away with being right 50% of the time. well they got it right this time. they called for between 20-30 inches. we got 27. hubsters shoveled all day long! we lost electricity at 3 am and didn't get it back until 4pm. in between we roasted hot dog over the logs, played sorry and battleship and ate mini marshmallows. it's not how i would choose to spend a day necessarily, but we did have a great time.
