    Good one. Pretty much sums it all up. They will tell you anything for a buck.

    From what I was told, they measure accumulation with a ruler on a flat, level surface (ie: picnic table for example) and once the measurement is taken it is swept clean. The process repeats. The bad part is that snow compacts under its own weight, so the totalled accumulation is always more than actually shows on the ground...

    I got about 15-18 at my house, pretty much right on the money with the forecast.

    Shoveling drifts on my walkway and deck this morning well over my waist deep.

    One hell of a wake up to winter considering that we've gotten a total of maybe 4" for the whole season prior to this storm.
