The storm grew worse as Tuesday night wore on. Howling 50+ mile and hour winds, drifting snow, thunder and lightning (Yes, snow thunder!) and sub zero windchills. We kept getting woke up all night by the howling winds.
The top of our porch is about 2 feet off the ground...note how high this snow is!
When we woke this morning, we found snow drifted about 4-5 feet high against the back of our house, 3 feet-5 feet all around our back yard, and front yard. One neighbor's front door was almost covered, and another's car was totally buried except for a bit of the roof! The high winds combined with the fact that our subdivision is surrounded by flat cornfields makes this a wind tunnel area.
