Notice how Bancroft, to the east has only 15 cm, 
yet Coe Hill has 38 cm. 
For my US friends, 100 cm = 1 Metre = about 1 yard (39")! 
This swath of snowfall was 19km from north to south.
We were happy to see our snowplow contractor this morning. 

He lives in MacTier, with waist-deep snow, which is much more snow that we had!

That's a lot of snow! We are supposed to get some this week, but it is only going to be enough to make the roads crazy. - Margy

Jenn: That is so beautiful on a sunny day but it is sure a lot this early in the season. Keep warm and stay safe on the roads.

Wow! And the lake hasn't even frozen yet! I think it will be an early time to shovel the cottage roof!

I drove from Georgetown to Port Sandfield Thursday night...somehow! I still am not plowed out. My contractor does not have the equipment for snow more than 5 inches. I hunkered in and my husband came up and rescued me on snowshoes! We had at least 31 inches of snow!
