I don't have a "before," but there was at least 6" on my car -- and 8" or more on the drive behind it!
Dug out, and a neighbor with a 4WD had been "driving out" ruts up and down the alley throughout the snowfall, so it has been fairly clear all along. My car started, with only a little reluctance at first. Hyundai makes a tough little engine.
The drive to the vet's was even less fun for the cats than usual -- the plowed-smooth, snow-covered back roads are better than the main streets, where four inches of compacted snow gives way irregularly to wet/icy blacktop: temporary potholes! My highest speed was 30 mph and I was a bit nervous about even that. Most traffic was no faster but there was traffic. Not much, but not the empty landscape of Sunday and Monday, either.
