Where are you surveying?

If you live in an area with frequent snow fall, you might like to see how deep the snow is where you are working before heading out to survey.  This is a handy Google Map Mashup for checking out snow depth which will make this task easier (found via).

The map uses colored map markers to show at a glance the depth of the snow at different resorts. If you click on a resort's map marker you can click through to view a full snow report for the selected resort.

The same site also provides a Google Map of the current weather conditions.
