How much snow...

...have you ever gotten where you've lived?
Doesn't have to be now, just curious as to the largest amount everyone has seen or lived with! If you have pics, show them!

In 2006 we had 12' snowdrifts in my backyard...and ended up with 4-6' piles of shoveled snow, from 3' feet of snow in our three car driveway that lasted from Jan.-June.

3' in the driveway

4-6' of shoveled snow in the process of being stacked up...

Haha! I'll trade you! I was snowed in for 3 days on my 16th birthday in '06...I was NOT a happy person. I've lived in the snowy states for 15 years and I am sick and tired of snow...wouldn't half mind moving back to Florida!!!(lived there for the first 4 years of my life)

I don't know the official statistics but I estimate the thickness of snow cover is around half a meter (around 1.6ft) here. Sorry I don't have pictures because it's too dark to take any now, but I try to add some later.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

The most we got was 18 inches last year!!! It was the most snow I have ever seen in my life. I'm from Tennessee, so we normally only get 1-5 inches a yea!!!! That is normally divided among at least 2 or 3 snows. Our entire city was pretty much shut down for a week because we had to wait for farmers to dig us all out...lol. We have no real snow plows. They brought out their tractors to clear the roads and check on everybody on the way to be sure they had heat and were ok.

*rephrasing her question*
I was asking, how much snow have you ever seen in one place, whether it be on vacation, or where you live? And if you have pics, post them.

3 feet. There was a state of emergency, no one could drive on the roads unless it was absolutley necessary. I was in elementary school then, so about 16 years ago.

Springtime in Calgary brings record snowfall

Being in Canada we get feet and feet of snow each year. It just adds on and on all winter.
