My driveway is shoveled out, now what about the street? I’m heading out this morning to get photos, talk to locals, eat breakfast and head down to a possible fire scene in Ivyland. Look for updates again late morning or early afternoon.

In the meantime e-mail, Tweet, Facebook us your snow totals and photos!
