13 Feet Of Snow In One Storm??!!!

As I write this, we are getting a really serious storm.  No surprise there. We often get really serious storms. But when I checked the National Weather Service forecast, I saw verbiage I've never seen before.
"Localized amounts up to 13 feet."
Yikes, Yowser, and Holy Cow.

The next paragraphs are from the NWS website:
"...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM PST TUESDAY... Heavy snow occurring. Travel will be very difficult to impossible, especially today and Monday. Tree branches could fall as well. Total snow accumulations of 5 to 10 feet expected, with localized amounts up to 13 feet. Winds gusting as high as 50 mph Sunday afternoon into Monday with gusts to 100 mph over ridges. A period of blizzard conditions is possible Sunday night into Tuesday morning."

You pretty much won't see forecasts like that anywhere else. I guess Y'all better plan your ski trips to Tahoe.
