Something like 30-36 inches, and still snowing
Sounds like where Moose lives they got even more snow. For some reason I have a memory that he lives up the shore from Duluth. Could be wrong though.

Correct. From noonish Monday to noonish Tuesday we got 18 inches of medium weight snow. Currently there is 29 inches in the uncleared part of my driveway (no drifting), but the more recent snow is heavier (still not extremely wet) and things are compressing down. In all, it seems to about 30 to 36 inches total, and it's still snowing.

I piddled around too late Monday night at my job, and couldn't make it home. It's generally flat to downhill going to work, and the opposite coming home. I'm driving a Saturn wagon with not particularly good for snow tires. Tuesday night and tonight I didn't go it (they'll survive without me somehow). It seems to be looking that I should get in to work Thursday night, but time will tell.

It was generally running a little below freezing (a good thing), but now it's a bit above freezing (damn, the snow gets wetter and heavier). I thought I heard that in about 24 hours we may be looking at 20 below F overnight.

Or something like that.

About half way through spring...
and we're in the process of getting up to 10 inches of wet heavy snow here in northern Minnesota.

Re: snow in May
You do realize that we have no idea of where you live (although my admin powers do let me see your IP, which is not a location one would be expecting snow).

Lake ice tsunamis cont.
That video was from Mille Lacs Lake, one of the larger interior lakes of Minnesota. That info is from the youtube source page. If you go there, there is another video of something like it but much larger.

My laptop (having my login info) doesn't like to play youtube videos, so I had to go to a different computer to view it. Thus I don't have a link for the other video at hand.
