We finally broke 3"  Grin It only took 2 years! I was nice to actually have a storm, and not another 1-2" clipper. here are some images...





I also made a timelapse of my brother and I clearing the driveway. You can see it on facebook, or on vimeo (when ever it finishes uploading)

Phew, only 3"  Grin Our record this year was 31cm (12") - the same as in 2006, but far from ~60cm (~25") in 2000(?).

Cool photo, I like it  Smiley

Thanks Roman, Actually we had 7" on this storm. Our record (at least since I have lived here) is 15" that all fell in 6 hours! back on March 2007

I think our record for snow on the ground is 28" in February of 2004 after three snowstroms. But the last two years have been really really boring not getting more than 3" until now

Wow!  Shocked

Last two years ('07-'08) were very poor with snow here too.
