The snowfall at my parents' house reached record levels in January. They started keeping records in Cd'A around1885 or so. That means that ever since they started keeping records, they've NEVER had as much snow on the ground as they did this winter.
Now, to keep things in perspective, back in 1993 we had so much snow that we had to shovel it off the roof to keep the house from collapsing. We used a ladder to get onto the roof. But by the time we were done, we walked off the roof, onto the piled snow, walked down the staircase we cut into that piled snow, and through the tunnel we had to dig to get to the front door.
They have more snow than that this year.
Seems like quite a bit of the globe is experiencing the same thing. But I've got $10 riding on the fact that someone will blame it on global warming.
