A few weeks ago we had an ~12" snowfall here in the Baltimore area. I didn't cover up my boat (1975 Newport 28) at all, and when I went to check on her a couple of days after the storm she was riding high, waterline not appreciably down and only the cockpit had snow in it. There was also a bit of snow inside the cabin where the wind pushed in through the gap between the washboards and the roof.

I'd say I'm therefore not worried about the storm we're about to get (~24"), but that would be tempting fate, so I won't. I'll check on her ASAP after the storm, and she'll be in my thoughts all day long.
