I just got off the phone with my brother, he lives in WI, I asked him how much snow you got? he groaned, said he lost count, just too much-LOL, of course I think its kind of fun laughing at him, especially when he complains of shoulder pain from using the shovel- :lol: :lol:

At this moment their is no such thing as to much. Snow has about an 8 hour lifespan here so 16 foot would give us an average rainfall measurement for the year. :shock:

When the mail carrier leaves a nasty note in our mailbox because she can't drive right up to it, then I know we've got too much snow. ;-)

In an hour? 24 hour period? Week? Month? or for the season?

My break down point is at around 18+ inches in a 24 hour period.

Good post. It seems to have require more work for me over the years. Schools out so you get to help feed the cattle.

Back then it was a juvenile thought and now it is just one more thing that needs to be taken care of when it happens.

You got to love it.

Up to about a foot at a time is nice. Up to two feet is tolerable, anything over 2' is a pain in the ass.

Snow around here is much like bigfoot. You really don't believe it, but on a rare occasion, it is spotted and gets everyone excited.

Bro said that he had a 6 foot snow drift in his driveway, he had to work the night shift, so he walked to work. When he got home the wind had blown it even higher, so he spent an hour just on the snowdrift, and went to bed, then in the morning the driveway had to be tackled, that took him another 1.5 hours. He said they have chance for another 6 inches of snow on Christmas Eve.

I'm gonna suggest he buys himself a Christmas present--A snow Blower- :lol2:

The joys of living in WI.

Those are exactly the reason my family migrated from WI in the 40s. Having to dig tunnels from the house to the barn to milk and having the snow plow refill the driveway after it had just been shoveled was getting old to my dad.
