CookingWithGas, the sentences you gave as examples have clear meanings but are grammatically incorrect. The sentence in the OP is grammatically correct. I agree with Gary T that the meaning is: "the snow fell and continued to fall," but I like the way the original author said it better. The explanation that I gave was just an example of situation in which that sentence would make sense.

You are not the only one who prefers the more common way of saying it.
