It depends upon where you live. I live in an area with a lot of hills. I've heard people in some areas would call our hills mountains though. Also, because snow is not that common around here and the population density not that high, the roads are never plowed. Again, because serious snow only happens about every five years or so, most people around here don't have 4-wheel or all-wheel drive. The nature of snow can also be different from place to place and time to time. Here it tends to be a wet, slick snow. In fact one year when we had about eight inches of snow, someone staying at our place who usually lived in the cold/snowy part of Alaska jumped in his truck expecting to be able to get around and was embarrassed to get stuck less than a quarter mile away. Trust me, not all snow is the same.
I now have over 2 ft to deal with. Weather man was way off the estimated accumulation
That's a lot of snow!
If winds are under 40, I don't call it much of a storm. Just a good snow. I love the way it threatens to cripple commerce, and gives me an excuse not to drive anywhere.
But that rarely seems to happen. Even 2 ft gets plowed and I have to go to work in the forking cold.
2-6 inches is an annoyance, over 12 it becomes significant, at 18 it's massive
our winters are cold and dry, so 2 feet is huge storm
If it would be polite and stay off the walk and the street I wouldn't mind it at all. However I have yet to see snow over 2 inches deep with any manners.
so you're in mass too right?
yamon. Looks like neither one of us lost power though. E-cheers!
I'm in a no-weather zone. I swear I never lose power when everyone else does. Hurricane, blizzard, random tornado, I'm good at home watching Louie or somethin while everyone else is sink-showering at work.
Just waiting for Spring
2 ft of snow is "Off Work for at least a Week"
Where I live it would mean total chaos.
