Winter Storm, Part 2

Friday started with the forecast snowfall, says Bill Leutz.  By 9 am, he had an inch and a half on his walk.  While the snow came down heavily, it was the lighter variety.  So he was able to sweep the snow off walks, and did so 3 times.  By 4:30 pm, there was 9 inches of snow, reports Bill.  Two to 3 inches of it were leftovers, and the new snow added to it by about 6 and a half inches.
