We've got some rough estimates, but we need your measurements.
There's no doubt about it — the recent blizzard left quite a bit of snow for Burlington to clean up. But how much snow? Although the National Weather Service does not have an exact total for Burlington, snowfall amounts have been recorded for several surrounding towns, including Winchester, Billerica and Waltham. Did you take snowfall measurements in Burlington? How much snowfall did town get? Tell us in the comments section below! In the meantime, here are the snowfall amounts for some local cities and towns (provided by the National Weather Service):
Photographs of the 2013 Blizzard from Burlington Patch and readers.
This past weekend's blizzard was quite a doozey. Over two feet of snow fell on Burlington, closing school on Friday, limiting traffic over the weekend and generally causing disruptions. However, the snow storm also gave some great photo opportunities. We asked Burlington Patch readers to submit pictures from their windows and on Sunday Burlington Patch editor Rich Hosford went around taking some shots. Check out our image gallery of the snow in Burlington. Have photos of your own? Add them to the gallery by clicking the "Add Pictures" button above and share your pictures with the community.

You tell us, are you soaking in these spring-like temperatures or hoping to see snow in the forecast?
Let's face it - Burlington hasn't been truly walloped with a snowstorm in quite some time. At least not one that left a significant amount of snow on the ground for more than a couple of days. On top of that, the National Weather Service is predicting that local residents can expect high temperatures to stay in the mid-40s for the rest of the week and the New England Patriots may end up playing their rematch with the Houston Texans in sunny, 50-degree weather. So, we have to ask: Have you been loving this break from typical New England winter weather or are you in serious need of snowfall? Let us know in the comments section below.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch; do you think we'll see snow?
The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm watch for our area, including Burlington, beginning Wednesday afternoon and continuing through Thursday afternoon. Snow, sleet and freezing rain are possible. Accumulations of snow could be four to eight inches of "dry snow." NWS said snow will begin Wednesday afternoon and continue through Thursday night. The heaviest snowfall could fall late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. NWS said travel may be impacted, especially during the Wednesday evening and Thursday morning commutes as snowfall may be fast enough to affect visibility.

Snow will fall during most of Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
Burlington may see 2 to 4 inches of snow over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
