What a record year for snowfall meant for a friend's backyard

Global warming notwithstanding, it turns out to be a record year for snowfall in many places around the world.

T sent along some before-and-after pictures of his backyard.

June 2006 (a gentle bank descends to a tiny creek, which is hidden by the foliage)

March 2008 (after the most recent 20 inches of snow melted and the resulting flood tore out a good chunk of the backyard)

T wanted to know whether he could sue the town for some out-of-control runoff. I helpfully suggested he go after Al Gore. John Edwards may be available.
