Well, here in the Detroit area, we haven't had enough snow at one time
for the last few years to do much more than make commuting a pain. I
would love to get a foot of snow at a time, but all we've been getting
is two or three inches--just enough to make me shovel the driveway but
not enough for a snow day from work (allowing me time to cruise in the
Quattro just for fun!). It used to snow a lot more here. 

I imagine it snows more in Needham (Mass? NH? Can't recall). 

Besides, 38 characters is too long for a plate here...and no asterisks
or exclamation points, either! :-)
