Wow,6 inches are unheard of?A few years ago in my home state of New Hampshire,they had 144"........ Yes 12 feet of snow.Not all at once of course but a winter w/out at least 1 or 2 feet of snow on the ground for the whole winter season is unusual.

In this part of Texas we might see 1-2" a year. Last year i believe we ended up with around 10-12" and that was weird. Yall guys that get a lot, PLEASE keep it this year.:D

Australia and NZ don't have a land mass connecting them to Antarctica so any cold winds travel across the Southern Ocean. Hence we don't often get the cold extremes that you guys can get. But NZ is colder than Australia.
Here endeth the lesson...:happy0030:

We have had sleet in Brisbane, but rare as a F*rd lover on this forum.

Snow? Saw it on TV.
Seriously, I was a teenager the first time I saw real snow- It was on a school field trip. I guess since we don't have to deal with it, we love it - and take an annual winter trip to Yosemite just to play.
I assume no one was injured when the roof collapsed - that could have been pretty horrific if there was an event going on!

Hi Jeff
Boy that was/is a storm, we don't get snow up where we are, we missed most of the brunt of that storm, just a bit of wind and squalls.
I guess that the city and building code authorities will now have to include snow as a loading factor for roof design! I see another building's roof collapsed as well, lucky it was the weekend.

Haven't seen snow here in the south since I moved from Indiana 7 years ago, last winter we were in Indiana and it snowed here in Florida, we missed it LOL. They said it was the first time snow was on the ground in all 50 states in a long time.
