How do you decipher a storm system's intensity, wxman57, wxdata, srainhoutx, Ptarmigan, Mr. T? Are there certain numbers that indicate how strong and weak that it is?

Aunt called from Sanger (Just north of Denton.....which is north of Dallas Fort Worth) said they were getting snow again, big flakes.
She calls every time it snows up there now since our December 4th snow event.......just to rub it in, and she's rubbed it in a lot this winter. :roll:
For the love of everything decent in this world please bring on SPRING.
I truly HATE cold weather now.
