My sister used to live in Alaska, and she said a snowfall like this might be somewhat commented upon, like a heavy rainstorm, but they don't really notice anything until about six feet fall. The drivers of heavy trucks just go through the roads, pushing snow down for the smaller vehicles.
Well, it was definitely dramatic further south! We're all cozy in the house with plenty of food and heating oil. The power didn't go out; neither did the roof spring a leak, so we're good. Too deep for sledding, but the kiddos have fun trekking through the deep snow.
These are nice memories.
