    I think the most I have ever seen at one time was 22 inches. On average though, a snowstorm here will dump about 5 or 6 inches at a time.

    About a foot or so is big to me; here in Delaware we don't get too much.

    The amount of snow we get doesn't bother me to much other than the fact my current vehicle does not like it. It's the ice that bothers me.

    Well, we can't compete with Finland or Iceland... Let's see, up to about 4 inches, we all drive more carefully. If we get 6 inches in a hurry, we might cancel school buses. Maybe... A lot of snow would be a foot at a time. That's rare. But over the winter we will get about 6 feet maybe. It doesn't seem like that much because it all gets packed down. 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

    Over here, anti-skid tires are required in law when the weather turns too wintry (I don't remember which was the due date of anti-skids but I remember that it was in November).

    Driving in winter is still pretty horrible sometimes. Like in the last week when all roads were frozen/full of snow/slush.

    In France it's also the law to put chains on. The funny thing is that they do it when it just starts sprinkling snow. Here there are no laws. You will people drive regardless of the weather.

    In this part of North Carolina, 2 inches means "Stop everything, the end of the world is coming."
    In Cleveland, OH where I grew up, 2 feet means "It's almost beach weather."
