NOAA is always full of shit, you get the amount of snowfall they say will happen maybe 20% of the time. Usually it's always less.

You're pretty much right, I'm just biased because of the times I've woke up in the morning expecting a foot, and actually getting 2" of crap.

I disagree, around here it is always pretty accurate.

And yes, those numbers are the maximum possible, obviously.

I'm dying to hit up the PNW one day though, just can't get one of my friends to ever go on a plane. Need to knock them out with some zanny bars in some milk like the A-team used to do to B.A..
