Last Wednesday: A foot and a half of snow.
This Tuesday: about six inches of wet snow, followed by freezing rain that put a layer of ice over everything.
Last night and today - six or seven inches of snow
Later this weekend - temperatures predicted to drop to five or ten degrees below zero Fahrenheit (-10 to -23 Celsius), not counting windchill
Conclusion - Not a good time to become a new homeowner and not have a snowblower.
