Mike l've had no experience with snow, living in the tropics kind of thing. However that sounds like an enormous amount of snow, and hard work clearing it if required. As l said, please all take care if you go outside and especially if you intend to drive your cars in it. It's 11.20 P.M. here in Townsville, 29 degrees Celsius and humid like you would not believe, should be raining with these conditions. Seems like it might be our third year in a row without our required rainfall, we are hooked up to a extremely large dam down south, but it costs to pump the water here, therefore water restrictions are in place at the moment. Different worlds you would have to say, similar interests so it seems. Thanks for your post, and l repeat myself once again, take care.
