PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - As I've said so many times in the past, I love snow. I love everything about it, the cleanliness of it, the constant challenge it is to forecast, the eerie calm that happens after a storm and everything is blanketed in white.

What I don't like is snow in April.

I'm done, I'm burned out, ready for a change in seasons and new forecasting challenges, like severe weather. But this winter JUST WON'T DIE.

As I talked about all weekend, a quick moving, but potent system raced across the area while many of your were asleep.

The result, several to as much as a half foot of snow greeted you on this day after April Fools. Certainly no joke...

The National Weather Service Office in Moon Township says the storm officially dropped 4 inches, smashing the old record of 1.5 inches set in 2005. Higher totals were found in a thin strip of northern Allegheny County through Armstrong and Indiana Counties.

Even more snow fell to the east of Pittsburgh....

Even though I'm a little tired of the snow, I will say it was absolutely gorgeous out this morning, the whole region looked like it got frosted...

Here's some more beauty shots...

This is the type of snow most people enjoy...where it sticks to everything BUT the roads. I call it postcard snow, because that pretty much what it is.

Check out Central Park in New York City...Amazing...

I hate to say it...But we're not done with the snow. There could be more by the end of the week and more next week.

But we'll touch on that later, I'll leave you with a kitty playing in the snow...
