    I once was interviewed by a TV news person when we got the first significant snow storm of the year. She asked me what I thought about the snow. I told her that it was only the first storm and was only 3 inches. Then I said that if she came back and ask me in a couple of months, my attitude would be different. We would have so much snow and nowhere to put it. Climbing snowbanks to deliver packages is no fun. That winter was one of the worse I remember. We had snow and ice storms every other day and late air meet points twice a day. What made it worse was that the city was near bankruptcy and wasn't plowing side streets. You had to drive down them in frozen ruts. It was like driving a train, you didn't have to steer.

    Good luck driving through that. Looks beautiful but hell to work in.

    That is probably 6", maybe 9" at the most, and that is nothing. Keep in mind the street hadn't been plowed at that point but still what you see in that picture is no big deal. Now, 2', maybe 3' is a different story.

    I don't want to even experience 1/2 an inch....that's why I choose to live in SoCal.

    Growing up in N.E. Ohio, winters could be bitter & miserable........especially standing and waiting for the bus to go to school across town.:rolleyes2:

    Looking at the snow depth at the tires, I would say you're in the ball park.

    I remember that ice storm you guys had about 10 yrs ago. I'd rather have 2 feet of snow.
