Snow!!!

The forcast here is once again calling for large amounts of snow. I've always shoveled the snow off the boat in these circumstances, but I'm gettign old and shovelling the snow off of the boat is getting old too. That led me to wonder, just how much snow can a boat have on it before there's risk of sinking? In my case, the cockpit scuppers are about a foot above the water line. Seems like the weight of the snow ends up pretty well distributed, so I'd guess that it would take a lot to lower the boat any significant amount, but I wondered if anyone here had any practical (hopefully not tragic) experience.....
