It lightly snowed all day yesterday and much of the night ending up with about 5 inches of accumulation. Just finished shoveling the snow from behind the garage and down the ally. Took about an hour.

I spent most of my growing up years in Texas and when gaming I remember the unrealistic view I had of snow as a hazard (or cold, more appropriately) and how much snow slows one down. Even something as thin as 6 inches slows one down and once you get a foot or more it starts to be like walking on a very sandy beach. More than that (several feet) and it can be a serious obstacle. So today, think about snow in your game and how much a pain the butt the pretty whiteness can be.
