I wanted to see deep snow. I drove (6 hours) two of my kids to Erie, PA. The TV news said that Erie had over five feet of snow. We really, really wanted to see that.
We played. We slipped. We slid. We stayed; the hotel lost power. We had to get tires rotated since I found myself driving in reverse on most of the downtown streets of Erie. We never did find a place that had five feet of snow.
