I hope the roof withstood it ok, otherwise they have even more problems! Must have weighed tons.

Isn't it law out there that residents have to keep the sidewalk in front of their property free of snow?

Why Americans don't walk anywhere. Because the Americans have space they spread-out, even in ski resorts, so you have a cluster of buildings separated by several 10's of  yards with no paths (sidewalks) joining them. When we have walked we were getting hooted at be the locals as the silly Englishmen walking.

Which is equivalent to 6.5 inches of rain in 24 hours.

That really is an incredible picture artmo - thanks for posting.
So it looks like the yanks (am i allowed to say that without being accused of racism?) are going to get a white christmas. Why can't we have one too? - I've never seen a white christmas in all my years and i'm fed up of it.
I want a white christmas just like the christmas cards and films show  Sad

The friends who sent this to me are currently in Florida but plan to go to Buffalo for Thanksgiving on 27th November. I wonder if they are going to make it. There are going to be floods once all the snow melts Sad

They should have less flooding. 6.5 inches of rain in 24 hours flooding. 65 inches of snow in 24 hours thawing out over several days less flooding.

Be careful what you wish for 7up. The bad winter of 1963 started on Boxing Day. Our village in Buckinghamshire was cut off for three weeks.

I've only seen one White Christmas when it actually snowed on Christmas Day. They have been rare in the south.

And you're quite a lot older than me (in real life not on the forum lol). If you've only seen one I have no chance!
