Watch Snow From This Epic Winter Storm Accumulate By The Inch

And the snow is still falling.

How much snow has fallen on the East Coast so far? It's actually hard to tell.

One family in West Springfield, Virginia, has been keeping track of snowfall the old-fashioned way ... with a yardstick.

And so it begins.

Two hours: about 1.5 inches

Four hours: about 3.5 inches

Six hours: about 6 inches

Eight hours: 7 inches (and some change?)

It kept snowing overnight obviously, but the family chose to catch some Zzzs.

18 hours: about 15.5 inches and counting
