I'm from Eugene, Oregon and snowfall is something we don't see much of in my hometown, until last month when we received the 5th deepest snow recorded.
The number one biggest snow ever documented here in Eugene was in January 1969 when I was just a kid. 47.1 inches adorned our eclectic college town. I don't remember much about the difficulties it caused, I only remember playing in it.
Last month the official recording was 19.1 inches. And since I wasn't alive for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th deepest snow, you can imagine how excited I was to get out and enjoy the white stuff.
