  • The most I have seen was about 3 foot when I lived in WV as a kid. I remember they declared a state of emergency and the power was out for about a week. Of course, when you;re a litte kid that's awesome, lol.

  • I'm here in Northern IL and we are getting snow as I write. We are supposed to get over a foot today and I know we have gotten more than that before but I can not recall any numbers. MY DD's school just called and canceled today so winter break comes one day early:) If it is not too bitter cold out we will be out in the snow later!

  • Babylove that's about what we had here in Ohio back in FEB. I wish I had pics to share but only video taped it. Of course schools were closed and it happened over the weekend so after hubby was done plowing and making extra money from people flagging him down to help we went to Kalahari. LOL, that place is awesome! We had a couple inches here this morning but now it turned into rain which is going to be a big slippery mess.

  • It never snows here in GA anymore, but one time back in 1985 ish, we had 13 inches of snow. It was so much fun. Then, a few years later, we got several inches of ice. It was solid ice but you couldn't tell until you stepped on it and slid. I haven't seen snow in many years.
