13. About 4-5" of heavy, wet snow here in northern Royal Oak - still coating branches.

I detest snow. :grr: Water should be clear and wet. :grr:

I'm located in a heavily-treed area. When I was a toddler, this area was woods where my uncles hunted pheasant. When they built houses in here in the 50s, they left many of the trees - every lot has at least 2-3 trees. There are enough trees that the horizon is unviewable in any direction - a "green wall" in the summer.

I made two morning forays out into the *B*R*R*R* with shovel in hand - cleared front and back porches and walkways. Then my neighbor showed up with his Toro and cleared the rest. (God Bless him.)

Lest anyone misunderstand ... I detest snow. :grr:
