A few years ago, we had a roadway cut out to our shop and the snow was as high as the truck box, but that's pretty rare.
I always consider "heavy snow" to be that really wet, sticky stuff, because it IS heavy! Great for snowmen, forts and snowball fights! Then we get that lovely "powder snow" that's awesome for skiing and sliding in!
Ah! You reminded me of my night shift last week. We had a heavy fairly heavy snowfall near work so we ended up making a snowman behind the hospital
