Growing up we always had at least one decent size snowstorm a year but no more. Now it's a big deal if we get more than a couple inches once or twice a winter. I LOVE snow (at least until sometime in February when I start getting pretty sick of it), so you can imagine how excited I was for the "blizzard" we got last weekend. 1 whole foot of snow! Wait...since when is a blizzard only a foot? What happened to the 5 foot snow drifts that used to block my front door? Oh, global warming what have you done?
