That would be 2 1/2" of snow on average.

Around here we call that an overnight dusting

Ya, quite sketchy.

I got the picture from my brother who got it from whoever saw it.

I asked if it was a DIY bonus room. He heard it was more like mental illness or problems.

I made a banquette out of 2x4 supports recently. They're good for at least 16" spans.
