So you want to live in the Ohio snow belt.

This is what I woke up to this morning, and it still falling at rates up to 2'' a hour. So you guys in Californa and the states and areas that rarely get alot of snow I envy you.

You're lucky. We can't even get out of our drive way we got to walk out to the road. They don't even have plows running just one front end loader with a plow. :facepalm1:

I wouldn't say California don't get snow.  About 70 to 80% of the state don't usually get snow but up in the Sierra's it's no uncommon to get 12 to 14 feet or more of snow.  So far we've had so little that the ski resorts have had to make snow to stay open.  So send some our way.

Here in northern germany is absolutely no snow.
