SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- If have ever wondered what 19 feet of snow looks like, the National Weather Service has the answer.

It sent out a side-by-side picture featuring Mammoth Mountain in the southern part of the Sierra. One picture was from right now, the other was taken when there was no snow on the ground.
