    I live in Wisconsin, snow storms don't phase me. Wake up one morning and there may be two feet of snow, next day there is nothing, when worst comes to worst school might get canceled, thats when you know its bad. Two days in a row, well then you got your self a snow storm...

    I haven't been in any that were too bad while traveling or hiking,  and never lived in a city where there were snowstorms. Since we retired to the Sierra Nevada foothills, we have experienced a few moderate snowstorms at our  relatively low elevation of 3500 ft. 
    We have had  roads and driveways blocked for a few days, and had  some power outages due to downed lines, etc.
    At those times we simply enjoy the beautiful silence and revert to century old technology of woodstove and candles.
    City snowstorms are a whole different thing.

    I'm in Michigan, and last month we had to endure what was called the "Snowpocalypse" or "Snowmageddon" TWICE. The whole state practically shut down, and that is saying something, since we obviously know how to deal with snow.

    We lived in North Dakota, near the Canadian border.  The wind blew constantly and snow never fell straight down.  Our first year their we were getting ready for church (husband was the pastor) and we could barely get the few blocks to church so church was cancelled.  In the morning the driveway was stacked high and iced in.

    1996 there was one of the biggest snowstorms in Philadelphia. Out of school for days, thankfully. My and my friends made this huge igloo and played in there for days.
