This stuff just falls to the ground like snow, but is very dense and heavy, not fluffy and airy like snow. When you go outside and walk, you walk on top of it, your feet don't sink into it like snow. The winds is howling and the windchill is awful.
It isn't over yet and could still pack one heck of a punch. I am hoping it poops out soon. lol

Beenie:we have the same precipitation but it is also clinging to power lines and tree branches .
