Beautiful harrisale! Although we (at least, I) have no idea where these shots are from

I'd take a picture from where I am, but there's zero snow at all. Just grass on the lawns.

EC's summary put KW at 20-25cm, I'd say we ended up closer to 25cm but made no measurements. We never really lost the 30-40cm snowpack from the 8th and we had a couple decent snowsqualls between storms, so the snow piles are huge. One on my street is at least 6 ft high. I'm 6'5 and it's almost as tall as me. It's the best snow pack we have had in a long time. The sidewalks are like hallways with all the shoveled snow.

I'm not sure. I'd say 4 or more feet.

Sorry forgot to mention those are from Guelph!

This last only about 2-3 hours as soon melting and a bit of wind blew everything down. Looked great while it lasted.

Must be a lot more than that - we had 3 feet in February.
