It's not snowing all that hard; when I took the picture the wind gusted a little bit so it looks way more dramatic than it is. It stopped snowing a couple hours ago and there is about the same amount of snow on the ground as that picture.
But it's still there.
I think we may actually have a winter this year. And I will probably regret going the 4-season tire route this year in lieu of the cost of winter tires.
