THIS is news?? that's hardly covering the ground!! Why....when I was a kid, we had REAL winters. Plows would pile up drifts 8-10 ft tall, because didn't have enough places to keep it. Global warming must be making winters easier now.

To the bumper on a car would be knee-high, unless you are vertically challenged. I had that outside my garage door this morning, but we only got 8" of snow, it just drifted that high in places.

O ya right. No one really cares about your so called childhood memories.

If I'm not mistaken, you opened up and read this article, fully understanding the scope of the article as the title is quite direct. Next time, dont read it then.

Actually that snow does look pretty deep because there would be a curb there and you can obvisious see the increase in the depth of the snow going toward the cars.

Please respect others stories! I know the snowfall amounts are large, but when we were kids, there WAS alot more snow than today! They ARE NOT "Tall Tales!!!"

Does no one realize that if that was actually waist deep-- the tracks you see would not be tracks-- as the midsection of the walker would be in the snow as well? You would see 2 holes with a depression connecting them. Logic prevails once again!!

No says ... on Saturday, Dec 20 at 9:44 AM

No if it was waist deep you wouldn't see two foot prints in the snow, you would see a big hole from a persons torso going through. There is no way this is waist deep snow. What a crock. Great fact checking again KCRG!

This post is like throwing fresh meat to a piranha. Nobody has a chance.

Sorry, that doesn't look waist deep to me and I'm a really short person!

Yeah Peosta made the news! says ... on Saturday, Dec 20 at 1:27 PM

Way to go Peosta! Sundown ski is doing well during this weather. So don't complain and drive to Sundown.

if it's waist deep why is there only footprints and not a plowing look like having troubles walking through it. there would be more marks in the snow than what there is showing in the pics.

oh terry says ... on Saturday, Dec 20 at 5:03 PM

spare us your "back in the day" stories. people tend to exagerate things that were in their childhood or past, and the 8-10 ft tall piles can be seen in any parking lot every whinter. but i agree, this isnt really news-worthy

Dr. Logic says ... on Saturday, Dec 20 at 5:52 PM

If it is waist deep then how are there just footprints....

cody says ... on Saturday, Dec 20 at 5:55 PM

u call that snow!!!

No, not waist deep. Try again tomorrow.

Last year, we had snow drifts higher than the school bus in places. When the wind blew we were snowed in.

kids now days are cream puffs

TheTruth says ... on Sunday, Dec 21 at 10:35 PM

I live in Peosta, and there are waist-deep snow drifts, but they are also in lots of areas this time of year. This person did not chose a very representative picture to support their statement.

annonymus says ... on Monday, Dec 22 at 8:31 AM

This is hardly knee-high! 70% of the persons living in this subdivision dont work, so why are they complaining of how high the snow drifts are? Besides they get their sidewalks and the street plowed by their landlord. They dont lift a finger!

It Will Keep on Snowing says ... on Monday, Dec 22 at 11:10 AM

Why not take the photo with a person standing in the waist-deep snow? Yes, I agree with TheTruth, it appears to be taken from the wrong angle.

It doesn't snow any less today than it has in the past. The facts are: http://climate.agron.iastate.edu/images/DataArchive/Snowfall.png
