The forecast was correct, although the snow didn't really get heavy until about 6 pm and then it was coming down at the rate of an inch or two an hour for a while. By morning it was gorgeous with heavy clusters of snow on everything. I went out with my yardstick and measured by my front patio where it was over 13 inches. There was more on the side of the building where my garage is located..maybe 15 inches.
Here is a photo I took last night when it was really snowing heavily.

These photos were taken this morning.

Luckily the temperature hit 50 degrees today with a lot of sunshine, so a great deal of the snow is melted already. I went out early to paint a snow scene before the snow fell off all the trees. I'll post that in a few days.
Meanwhile last Friday I was in Bay Shore along Main Street and Napper Tandy's with it's rich, red front just screamed to be sketched. I'm sure on Saturday it was a whole lot more active for St. Patrick's Day.
