    When it was a foot, it was nice and pretty, and I wanted more snow.

    When it was 2 feet, I said cool, that will make for some good skiing for a while.

    When it was 3 feet, I said, well, that will take a while to clean and it's over the top of my snowblower.

    When it was 4 feet, I was thinking, uh oh, I've got to find some place to put this. And I'd better get the roof cleaned off.

    When it was 5 feet, I was saying, you kids go play over there and stop knocking snow back into my driveway. And this is the last gas I'm putting into my snowblower this season, I mean it.

    Any snowfall greater than 7 feet in 4 days. That kind of set the standard about two or three years ago here in the Buffalo area.

    Anything more than the threat of possible snow or sleet shuts this town down and the grocery stores get mobbed by people buying a weeks worth of rations.

    We do not get too much at one time here. So when there's anything above 5 or 6 everybody starts thinking it's the end of the world.

    Being in Florida, any snow that sticks to the ground is a lot.

    I live in Colorado and the more snow we have the better. We need to build up the snow pack so we can have a good water table. The amount of snow doesn't cause too many problems here. It is the drifting when we get blizzard conditions that becomes a pain.

    We got this much.

    Each board is 8" wide (not 7 1/4"), so you do the math :)

    Anything over 2 feet in 24 hours. I am so sick of weathermen action like 6-8 inches of snow is a catastrophe. I work in a grocery store and we get these panic rushes every few weeks when snow is forecasted.

    I live in the mountain west, so even when we get snow, it's usually light and fluffy, especially compared to the hernia induction snow that you get! I don't even own a snow-blower, I kinda like to get out and shovel, anything less than a foot of fresh powder is a pleasant morning workout!

    Took my scout troop up to the summit last week, we all built snow shelters and spent the night. Even up there we had less than 2 feet total. It was about 5 degrees outside, but we all slept well in our snow-caves.

    For me personally, I don't really mind the snow. I actually enjoy shoveling snow. I don't mind 3-4 feet of snow myself.

    Most people in the area, freak out at an inch of snow. Which happens 3-4 times a month in Central Ohio.

    Mee too! I'm liking it being March 1. We got less than 20" TOTAL this year of snow. Baltimore and Philly got FOUR TIMES as much snow as we did. :rofl:

    Hey - GW (the first one - the VERY first one) froze his butt off in that general area 200+ years ago waiting in the snow and cold. 'Bout time you guys found out what that's like. LOL

    Yo know, when you look outside and you say, look, it's starting to snow!
    There's no snow on the ground yet but, that's when there's too much snow!! Notice where I live...

    When we had 19 inches of light and fluffy snow it was ok..it was pretty. When we had six inches of heavy snow it was a pain in the ***. When we had two feet and no power I wanted to go "nuclear". :rofl: When we had another two feet I was ready to move to Miami. Now I despise snow.

    Earlier this month we had 4" in the Myrtle Beach SC area.
    Snow at the beach is just too weird, and snow really freaks out the gators.
