    Between 3pm yesterday and 10am this morning we got 22" of snow here in Lyons CO.

    Here's a few pics. The back yard, my wifes Sentra and my Titan.

    p.s., I saw on Lyons facebook page, this girl is stuck in Boulder and needs a ride back to Lyons.
    I told my wife I was going to go get her, and she said, No, your Not!

            No..........a lot of snow is Cheyenne Wyoming in 1972/3 (stationed there). The guys living in the barracks were able to walk out of the 2rd floor windows down to the ground (walking on packed snow). All the floor lever doors were totally blocked off by snow. That's a lot of snow. I was living off base and was told to stay home....that never happens in the military.

                    That photo is taken somewhere in Eastern British Columbia. The snow shed tunnel and the mountain in the background don’t exist in the prairies or North Dakota.

                      I used to have pictures of our locomotives with snow up to there roof from North Dakota. There were "cuts" that they went through that would fill up with snow. North Dakota is not all prairie.

                      The elevation difference in North Dakota is 2,800ft (from lowest point to highest point in the state). While North Dakota might not be as flat as Saskatchewan, it’s not a mountainous state. The photo you posted above was taken near the Rogers Pass in British Columbia. The average annual snowfall in the Rogers Pass is 30’.

                      It appears that the record snowfall for North Dakota was around 28” so perhaps in some areas where the wind was blowing it might have doubled to 4’. An AC4400 is just over 15’ tall so it would have to be the mother of all snow drifts to reach 14 or 15’ in North Dakota!

                      We drove into Whistler, BC and it was raining until the last 5 miles then it was SNOW. The snow was already up to the tops of the stop signs in town and they had already plowed and dug them out so you could see them. Sidewalks were tunneled out in the drifts. We're expecting 6" on the grapevine pass north of Los Angeles from this Thanksgiving storm. Snow down to 2000 foot level here. The nice thing about snow is there is always someone who has seen it deeper than you.

                      Yup, Whistler gets a lot of snow which is why it’s a great ski destination. The crowds are brutal and the snow is a little heavy but it’s nearby Vancouver which explains the crowds. A lot more snow falls there than the plain, plateau and valley areas in North Dakota.

                      Of course most know that I built a 76 Club cab long bed Power Wagon for my son and drove it to Colorado and gave it to him last year so he could properly transport my grandchildren in such situations... This morning's text message as I was driving to work...

                          And this is after it all settled and warmed up. Most years you could ride over the roof of my house. The entrance was a tunnel. I use to call ot the fortress of solitude.

                          So glad i dont have to deal with the white cold stuff anymore!

                                I spent 20 years living in deep snow. I will never go back. Its terrible.

                                I like the snow, it can be beautiful. Ive seen snow crystals as big as half dollars but working in it. When the wind is up and you are up in a tower trying to wrestle a 5,000 Lb section of tower while lining up the pins and screaming at the ground guy over the walkie. No thanks.
                                Or clearing my driveway before work with the 1 ton plow truck just to get my daily out of the garage, then work all day, co.e home and see a 3 foot berm of ice and do it all again just to get my car inside so i can wake up at 4 am and start over... no thanks...


                                That game has lost its luster for me...

                                I want fast cars all year, sitting on the beach flying kites with my lady and the dog and not worrying aboit my roof collapsing, thank you very much.
