When I almost crash landed in the snow!

Sitting here looking at all this snow and thinking about the time that I truly almost lost my life. We were bringing back a helicopter from New Hampshire to Indiana, we were along the lake so we ran into some lake effect stuff. We go to a small airport and it's closed and we can't even get in.

We had to get somewhere warm and safe, and didn't have time to sit and burn out all our fuel, so I made the decision to land in a nearby football field. I had landed in the snow many times before, I guess I misread the depth and fluffiness of this snow.
