I'm amazed you get so little snow that this is considered to be a lot. Seems like a nice place to move to for a mild winter :)
Yeah :) This amount of snow is quite uncommon, I believe the last time it was in the 80's. You wont believe how much trouble this kind of weather gives over here. Maybe next year we will be a bit better prepared. :D
10 years ago I moved from Pennsylvania to North Carolina (USA states), my home town in PA averaged 2-3 meters of snow every year, my new town averaged a mere 2 centimeters.As such I left all my heavy winter gear in storage and two months later NC had the worst blizzard in over two decades with over half a meter of snow topped by 4 centimeters of ice.The entire state of NC had half as many snowplows as my home village of only 2000 people had. We had to simply wait 3 weeks for everything to melt.There's my winter story to make you feel good about your own situation :)
Just got 18cm of snow :) A day late but close enough for me to count it as a white Christmas.
