We have had quite a lot of snow over the past 5 years. After a long period of autumn-like winters, we have been getting quite a few real winters, now.
This year the south has had the worst of it, mostly between 20 and 40 cms, but in 2005 and 2006, the north had over 60 cms of snow, and we only had 15 to 20 cms.
And this is the second layer of snow we got. About 3 weeks ago, we also had a few days of snow. I cannot remember ever having snow as early as the first week of December...
