You're probably not too far off the mark. We get a few decent snowfalls in my city a year. However, go outside the city and they'll get piles of it. I'll try to dig up some pictures from a long time ago that show the snow as nearly taller than me. The snow that's been posted has been pretty impressive though!
Here are a couple of photos from last spring at my uncle's, about an hour away. The snow is melting, but you can see the height in the front:

This is above Yosemite Valley on Saturday evening. We did an overnight snowshoe backpacking trip out to Dewey Point.

I hope you're serious, because I think that would be incredibly interesting to see what everyone posts!
I really enjoyed my day today. DEFINITELY overspent. I went to stores where I was forced to pay 3x more than usual, but I think I came out with some killer stuff. It is all available, but I am in deep. So, that means, to those of you who I am in trade talks with, lets get that done quick because Thursday listings are coming.
First find with a story. I am in a consignment shop and looking for obviously extraordinary things that I can't find in thrifts. So I feel something that is quite amazing, pull it out, and bang Kiton...but not just any Kiton. I take it to the register despite the $88 price tag because I want this bad boy right? So the lady at the register is like, oh you stumbled across the Burberry suits, that were priced at $150-250. And I say no, just this. And she says, well Neiman Marcus is still a good brand right? 14 Micron, Super 180s, $9000 retail. Boom.

I removed your photos from the quote, but awesome haul! Really, it just kept going! Well done and congrats!
