I've seen an abundance of this lately and it's stupid.

People posting "we have 2 feet everywhere" and "we got at least a foot and a half from this storm" So on and so forth is getting terribly annoying.

I'm referring to the storm that hit Manitoba last weekend. Yes it snowed a fair bit. Did it snow one and a half feet? Not even maybe. General reports from official weather reporting stations are generally 8 to 14 inches max. 14 is the highest number that was officially reported.

I know everyone wants lots and lots of snow, but after it falls and settles down a bit it's nowhere near what people are reporting.

Especially now that it's been 36+ degrees for two days, that's not helping either.

I am sick of the the exxerated totals also. The chambers lie up in Northern Wi. I come here and try to give as accurate totals I can. Sometimes I provide pics so people can come to their own conclusions.

Indeed people exaggerating is kinda pointless. Yes, there may be 1.5-2 foot DRIFTS, but that's not the amount of snowfall...[:I]

I could easily find .75" in the deep spots in my backyard. .5" ??? You must be one of those glass-half-empty people. I'm not lying either.

i agree with got mud, yea it gets annoying when people exagerate a lot but oh well there just a little excited, just have fun and go out and play with it, what you get is what you get, if you only get 6" theres no point in lying and saying you got a foot

we got almost 4ft of snow in the month of december but then we got to negitive 30 degrees and it was too cold to ride, then it got warm enough to ride but all the kids being out on break from school our snow is beat up... there are still alot of untouched mountain areas though... even though the snow settled it is still deeeeeeeeep.
