A shot taken from our patio table out back. This was taken around 5:30p on Christmas Eve. The first photo I submitted on the 21st showed a little over 8" on the ruler. It's a "true" White Christmas as fresh snow is falling on top of the foot and half we've received since it all began. The ruler speaks for itself---we still have over a foot on the ground! Yes, some of the white stuff has melted. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
