Finally, some appreciable snow in Central Virginia - maybe an inch. Was out in the dark this morning getting it off the dishes.
Thinking real hard if driveway needs a quick shovel (lots of pushing with no piling up) or not. Great way to get the steps in.
Well, I have about three feet, and Erie, PA, just southwest of me, has nearly seven. I can send you some if you like.
Edit: Just found the December total, so far, for my area. It's 105", with most of it coming in two separate snow events. SMH.
I hope that, with this really cold weather, Lake Erie is going to freeze over soon, as the longer it takes to freeze the longer we're going to have this lake effect snow.
Well, I waited until 2pm and the revised forecast said it wasn't getting above freezing, with less solar loading than I thought. Ended up going out to shovel when it was probably too late. I got most of it, but there was still a good lot stuck-on.
Bottom line: I got a good 7000 steps out of it, but no lifting action. Ended up running 35 minutes of progression intervals on the treadmill when I came in afterwards anyway.
@MarkJFine, do you live near mountains? I didn't know it was snowing in parts of Virginia too. I've been seeing a lot on the Web about the ridiculous amounts of snow that fell on PA.

@GabeU, all the snow I've seen in my life, combined, doesn't even come close to that. That's 8 and 3/4 feet, and only for a month. Wow. Let me say that backwards: wow.
Southern Fauquier - Foothills of the Piedmont. We got a bit overnight the other night, but nothing during the day.
Western PA probably got the Erie Express, like @GabeU.

I don't think we in the UK do that much exercise in an afternoon; perhaps not in a lifetime. For lifting action, try a pint in each hand.
I used to do it all in the early morning and prefer getting it out of the way. Lately it's been a lot of whenever I get motivated. I used to do my strength routine (pressups/situps and/or curls) every morning, but I extended it and started doing twice a week instead because it wasn't really burning anything. Takes me over an hour to finish now, so it's harder to get motivated.
Drive-time-wise I'm really midway between DC and Richmond, now that most of 95 to the South is high-speed.
