   Hi Bashy, we had snow here as well, with rain bucket heater on it melted the snow & showed 3.0 mm, I did not measure how deep the snow was but I would say a guess of about 10/15mm.

Sorry chap, didnt see your reply, by rights 3mm of water content should equate to about 3cm of snow :)

  Not sure about that, 1:10 approx. i.e. 1mm of rain = 10mm of snow approx. have a look on the net there's a lot about it.
