Neighbor's across the stree to the side of my house.
Her white car is buried. At least on that side.



My backyard neighbor. It's piled pretty high on the table they have back there.

WOW! That is a ton of snow! All the insides of me are incredibly envious at the moment. I love winter time and days/weeks like those!

Yikes! That is a ton of snow. We have about that much but definitely did not get it all in one go.

Wow! That's a lot!! Happy shoveling!!

When I was young we used to get snows like that. These days, we're lucky if we get a few inches!

I know the snow is pretty but as a truck driver who has been in the snow, I don't like it. How much have you gotten?

well, I'm not going out and taking various measurements around the yard. I'd say 2 ft. When it's blown around you're supposed to take several measurements and average them.

Kim, that blizzard you got stayed close to you. All I saw was 3 flurries. Unreal!

actually, some of what people remember is probably not quite accurate. Our memories are malleable (and things seem different when you're a kid besides) so if you really want to know you'd have to look up the weather history.

Anyway - went out to do some shoveling and the drift outside my front door came up to my knees. Over by the cars at the top of the driveway the drift was about waist high. There's still have the driveway left to shovel.

Here you go Tam, Indiana blizzard of 1978. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=india na+blizza...

My parents have pictures of our overhead garage doors open, but the snow was up to the roof. All you saw when you raised the garage door was snow. I remember my dad digging a hole out of the house so he could climb up the snow to the roof. No ladder needed. He was afraid the weight of the snow would cave in the roof, so he shoveled the roof. Crazy!

I'm not talking an occasional storm. I mean regular winters. My husband swears by the 'we used to get so much snow' but I really think it's a case of nostalgia mixing in with the perception of a kid.

That could be. We always perceive things 'larger' then they really are when we're younger too. Everything looks big when you're little.
