Snow Feet

From the BBC:
"'Historic' US storm returns to snow-covered north-east"

 A fierce storm is bringing more snow to parts of the US north-east, with officials warning residents to be prepared for 3ft (1m) of new snow. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called it a "historic event", while a local official dubbed the storm "gigantic". Some places, including the city of Buffalo, are already underneath 5ft of snow, and eight people have died in New York state. Weather-related deaths were also reported in New Hampshire and Michigan.  Freezing temperatures have continued in many parts of the US, with heavy disruption to travel. The new storm blast spread across New York early on Thursday, bringing thunder, lightning and the spectre of several more feet of snow. "It's a force of nature, a massive force of nature,'' Deputy Erie County Commissioner Richard Tobe told reporters. "We're prepared, but the storm is gigantic and persistent.

^ I've seen the pictures of the feet of snow that the Buffalo area has received in a few days. All I can say is I'm glad I don't live in the Snow Belt. Living on a mountain gets me a good amount of snow as it is. ^
