COldNH: Very nice place you have there. Man oh man that seems to be a decent dump!
Fuelfarmer: I love it! LOL. Quite ingenious way to snowboard on flat! lol
4-5' in 3 days Jan '10. Our average yearly snowfall is around 250". Big storms are pretty common here in the belt. Just another day for most when they hit . Most are equiped with serious snow moving iron
Plow on this loader is 40" high.Pushing snow well over the top.
I aint got nothing impressive like most of those pics. Our biggest recent snowstorm was in 2010, February of that year we got hit with a nor'Easter one day (around a foot and a half or more), then two days later another big one hit (around another 10" or so). That's been the biggest one in the last 10 years. The winter of 2009/2010 was a pretty good one. We even had a big one in mid-March of that year (around a foot). Here's some pics of the Feb. snows from 2010...
Scotty those are still pretty impressive pics! Like I mentioned before, it's all relative to your "normal"....
Where I currently live we normally get 30cm (12 inches) in a storm. We start to say "hmmm..it's a lot of snow" when we get 45-50cm. lol.
Winter 2010/2011 This was early Feb 2011. The first pic with the red arrow shows some of my rear deck where we have a hot tub buried under the snow.

Wow. That is a very decent pile of snow! And it does not look to be fluffy at all. AKA heart attack snow!
My ol girl Cheyenne (Lost her this summer) followin me across the deck
I don't have alot of pics from the 09/10 winter. It was storm after storm after storm and i don't think i ever got out of the plow truck. lol
We just received a sad 8 inches yesterday. I only enjoy 18+ inches! lol
That is a very picturesque house! And a nice storm to boot!
Tom: was all that snow in ONE storm?
Here are a few shots of southern Iowa, December 2007. Being in the utility business ..... don't ever want to do this one again! Weeks of damage repair, poles snapped, lines down, services ripped off houses, then it got cold.
That was 2010, we had 4 weekends in a row where we got between 5 - 10 inches. At the time it was crazy. I miss it now. Since that year, we have gotten very little snow in the past 2 years.
Ice is one of the prettiest sights however it is the most devastating. In Quebec we got one heck of an ice storm in 1998.
That is what happens. LOL. We complain when we get it but then we miss it if we don't. I guess it's human nature!
Same here . . . we were personally without power for 14 days. I lucked out though and was able to get a generator three or four days into the power outage which was a life saver since it was in my pre-woodstove days.
Jake: The same storm that hit quebec that hit you guys. What a mess it was. I can say one thing: a wood stove in this province, especially in the rural areas, is an asset. That is why I really wanted one in the first place. I had never heated with wood but I know that since 1998 lots of people in Quebec want wood stoves so I decided to put one in my basement. And I have not looked back since nor will I ever go without one again!
Front and back yards. This is by no means a big snow but it seems that this is all we can get around here. This came Wednesday night and Friday afternoon. I have seen it to the top of the fence thought one time. Living along this road is like living along an interstate at least when it snows traffic is moving more slowly thus reducing the road noise. New Creek is on the other side of the road
Blizzard of 78' was big but I was 16 and there were no iPhones and digital cameras
so I don't have pictures but here is winter 2011 in my town.
Now that looks like a real winter. I love it!
