We ended up in Monroe, WA for Xmas day and the snow was in the 3 feet deep range like Prismo's pictures.  It has been a long time since I have seen that much snow.  I didn't take the 4Runner, but it would have been great fun to play since there were several tractors ready to pull me out if I had gone to play in the fields.

It is now raining on the snow so I dug drainage channels, this area was up to my chest. When the snow and ice slides off of the garage roof it will probably smear my f250  :yupyup:

Prismo you got the whole storm.  We just got the very edge of it.  The rivers are flooding, but we didn't get the amount of rain they predicted.  Thought about getting some pics of the flooding rivers, but I was too tired.  Was up and at work @ 3 this morn.  :yawn:

Yes we did Mr. Big Cheese. This is what snow turns into in Western Washington. Almost all of these were taken while I was driving so the quality is blah.
First one is a guy by the creek down the road. He didn't build his levee high enough.
Second one is the main river valley, it is 2 or 3 miles wide now.
Third is the normally tiny Pilchuck River.
Last one is one of my roads to town, no I didn't try to cross it.
