We are expecting rain and getting snow instead. I really dread when the rains start ... it will be a really messy place.

Joan, I hope spring is here for you, for certain, too. This year is a new start for you, and I hope it is full of flowers, food plants, and fragrance.
I looked up your forecast - looks like low on tues is 32, but otherwise some days into nice 50s and 60s. Sunshine on Wed. Sounds nice!
We had a sunny afternoon yesterday. I planted potatoes. It's early. It's OK if they don't grow, or if they frost. I just had to get out and plant.
Almost all the snow is gone now. The cold snap broke a couple of days ago and temps almost reached 50 degrees F. Then we had some rain that melted it quickly, and the rest should be melted Sunday when we expect another rain storm. Spring should be springing now. I surely hope we don't have another cold snap.
That looks like winters where I grew up too, which was Zone 5. There was an advantage, gardening-wise. Fruit trees did not come out of dormancy as early, so were less likely to be subjected to a killing frost. Also the summers there, being hot and humid, made for great corn and tomato growing.
But I am not a fan of snow! I'd rather look at pictures of it! Thank you for posting them.
"Monday morning, city leaders sent out 55 pieces of equipment and crews worked through the night. Crews are focusing on arterials and residential hills."

We still have cold temps and intermittent snow. Rain is expected next. The current temp at 1:00 PM is 32 degrees F.
Your neighborhood looks so much like the neighborhood where I grew up, I could swear you live down the street! Very nice! Looks so comfortable and just like home.
If that's the status of snow for you right now, I won't complain ANY about late spring here! Thank you for the reality check!
