When we had 24 inches of snow one day and another 12 inches 4 days later...this made for great sledding conditions! We used a big dirt pile in an empty lot in our development that hasn't had a house built on it yet. We had a great time but the snow was so deep, it was really hard to navigate through. Adam couldn't walk in it at all. FYI...we are supposed to get more tonight and as I write this, the flurries are starting to fall.
