Forum rules

Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

You can estimate it by calculating the weight of the same amount of water.

50 square feet x 20 inches = 83.3 cubic feet = 2360 metric litres (see Capacity & Volume conversion).

One litre of water weighs 1 kilogram, so if it were water, it would weigh 2360 kg or 5203 lbs (see Mass & Weight conversion).

You amount of snow depending on how wet it is would be more or less ligher than the same capacity of water, i.e. no more than 5203 lbs.
