40-year weather

We've had snow.

Yeah, I know you think we're wimps. But most people live here *because* we don't have either extreme: we don't get humidity with heat, and we don't get snow. Maybe some sprinkles of flakes that are gone by the next morning, but not 3 to 8 inches of snow onto frozen ground, followed by freezing rain, followed by another 3 to 8 inches of snow, all within a week. No time to dig out in between. Most people don't have chains or snow shovels; some people don't even have boots and warm coats. We just don't need them!

Until this happens.
