12/24/13 snowfall totalUPDATED 12/27/13 [CLOSED]

We had a gorgeous snow Christmas Eve and Christmas Day that should have made a lot of kids very happy. This storm stayed very much to predictions and began snowing heavily in the late afternoon continuing through the evening.

Snow would have been plowed on most properties the evening of the 25th unless you requested something different with your provider.

12/24 prediction1-3″  of snow is predicted for Christmas Eve evening through Christmas Day. Could make life tough for Santa Claus, but I think he can handle it.

Make sure to talk to your snow provider about Christmas Eve/Christmas service. Most places will obviously be closed and then plowed Christmas night  but make sure your snow provider knows if you need service for Christmas Day.

Luckily, this cold will leave us for a few days and even a high of 32 on Saturday! But the cold will return on Sunday with another high of 7. This pattern of light snows every few days looks to be sticking around for the near future.

Merry Christmas!!
