    This was the scene I woke up to this morning in my apartment parking lot. We've had right around 70 INCHES of snow, and they're saying we could get slammed with the worst of it yet Monday night. So, if we get only FOUR MORE INCHES of snow, this will have been the worst storm in the HISTORY of Reno. Yeah... I'm real glad I moved here... :wtf:

    These pictures are reminiscent of some of the scenes we got in a blizzard last year. Car ports were destroyed just like this.

    Wow!!!!!!...... I think I'll stay where I am. Snow is pretty but I don't think I could handle that much snow. I've never experienced a blizzard and don't think I want to after looking at those pictures. brrrrrrrr

    I love weather like that. Blizzards, hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, etc. It is awesome to watch the power of nature.

    Thank God no. I was listening to the evening news, and they were doing a piece on car ports collapsing under the weight of the snow. So I decided to go out and check mine, and when I did, I saw that two others had ALREADY collapsed, so I moved my van. I was lucky. My car port had as much snow as any of the others on it, but it didn't fall.

    I find it odd that the building codes would allow for flat roofs (or is it rooves) in an area where snow can accumulate.
