*TRUE FACT - ND has different engineered weight restrictions for their roofs when building a home to take in the snow accumulation on their roofs.
In '91 we had a 14 inch snow storm that took down the roof of one of our sheds. It was on May 3rd. Super heavy wet snow.

Yeah, not uncommon for building codes/restrictions to vary based on region. Another requirement in a lot of northern regions is the 2x6 studs on exterior walls to allow for more insulation material. Southern regions generally still use 2x4 for exterior walls and most any interior wall will be a 2x4 frame. Also coastal regions have a lot of requirements around windows and such to deal with the tropical storms and such.

Man what a beautiful day here today. First day of spring! Almost all snow melted in the last two days. I have one tiny pile left.

Well were back to Winter once again. It has been like Spring here almost all week, in the 50's now it is dumping tons of snow outside. :(
 
Winter of 96 we had 50 some below around parts of the state around the first part of Feb. "Too Tall" Tom Szymanski @ channel 11 threw hot water into the air and it froze in his
weather section of the news. I believe it was picked up by the national news.

Well it looks more like winter now than it did in winter. We got about 6 inches and it was a wet heavy snow. Suppose to be in the 50's though this weekend.
