Today finally the snow hit our place and how it did:
Yesterday when I went to bed it was snowing only a bit having about 2mm on the streets. When I woke up today we had a cover everywhere of at least 15 centimeters. The streets were not prepared or cleaned and down the hill from home was quite an experience with the car. On the highway my highest speed was around 65 to 70 km/hour (except in the road tunnel, where I drove 110 km/hour).
It's always impressing how much too fast I see others driving under such conditions...
