After a winter with almost no snow at all here in Massachusetts (2-4" total until the storm last week) we received 30+" (a few towns received 36") last Tuesday and another 10-17" yesterday. This exceeded the average normal total for the entire winter from just those two storms.

More on the way: another 6-10" predicted for later in the week.

No Snow Here

In the Washington, DC area we missed another bullet, glad to say. We simply had a warm (for the season) & wet day. I remember living in Boston more years ago than I care to say, & you get used to snow by the foot there.

Remember, spring is just a few months away!

glad I moved from the Chicago area to southern Tennessee last year. Don't miss the snow or the taxes.

You are welcome to all of it, 4 feet yesterday and more on the way Thurs/Fri Temp is -40F with the wind chill are you sure you want it ???????

TEXAS

We rarely see snow here and when we do we just look out the window and say how beautiful the snow is. No need for a snow blower or shovel. We just wait for the great Texas weather to change in a few minutes and melt it away. If we are lucky we get the lovely scene for one or two days.

I can not imagine a foot of snow, little lone what you are getting..... Everyone stay warm and safe.

They were saying on the news yesterday that Tucson normally has about 1" of rain in January but we had 2 1/2" this year thanks to the 1 1/2" we got on the last two days of January.

This week we are back to mid 70's and sunshine and the top down on the converts. smile

I moved here from Minnesota back in the early 80's and have not been back there even once since the day I left.

Another Monday and another storm here in the NorthEast. It is truly crazy how this winter has turned. Started good and now it's one after another.

Looks like more examples of the pros and cons of "adjusted/biased" averaging.

I too prefer steady, constant and predictable weather. confused

Sounds like another un-monitored tax is needed here to correct or even eliminate this un-natural/un-predictable problem of weather, climate or even life itself.

No snow, but lots of mud from all the rain here in Ocala.

When I was Stationed

at Amarillo AFB, (back in 1960 when it still existed), going to Fighter Maintenance School, we had some young men from California, who had never seen snow before. When we got several inches of snow that year, they were like 6 year-olds out there playing in it. Then I went to Goose Bay Labrador, where they get about 120" of snow annually.

Spring can't soon enough for

Spring can't soon enough for me

There are some real problems that begin to compound each

other. Roof ice damning generates problems of water leaking into living quarters, the colder it gets the greater the risks of water pipe freezing. Potholes and road hazards accumulate, vehicle materials become brittle. And of course people themselves become both emotionally & physically stressed. These are all common factors that involve life anywhere there is a meaningful winter. Then again when I was a much younger man I actually regretted the passing of winter.

There are consolations:
1. Despite the sensationalized media coverage, what has been anomalous thus far has not been any particular records around these parts, but how late this weather cycle has appeared. This is really mid January NE weather occurring mid to now late February.
2. There are real environmental benefits to seasonal cycles.
3. The season always ends, although sometimes w/some unwelcome consequences like flooding.

I don't know any region in the U.S. that is without seasonal, weather, or environmental challenges. Then again there are all those other factors like economic opportunities and services that influence, if not determine where one chooses to live.

Snow in Mid Atlantic

Got about 5 inches last night. Nothing like the New England area. Spent 5 hours shoveling it off driveways this morning. Warm bathing martini took care of sore muscles. More snow expected. Too bad there's no way to teleport it to California...

It's Not just The Snow

The relentless, persistent cold is pretty bad.

The snow that fell weeks ago is still dry and powdery. Never thawed and iced up, still blows around. That's cold.

Icicles tinkle like crystal when they fall, no thud.

Shoveling is pretty easy, the snow is light and powdery.

Snow

I remember being stationed at KI Sawyer in upper Michigan back in the 70's - The base averaged over 400 inches (four hundred) every winter I was there. I recall one storm that lasted several days. Snow plows were dispatched to clean up the roads in the housing area where I lived. I looked out to see what the commotion was all about and realized that a bull dozer had been called to pull the snow plow off a drift. Somehow he had managed to get high centered and couldn't free himself. The drifts were as tall as the house we lived in.
Living in Texas now, don't miss the snow one bit. I feel for the folks in NE.

You can say that again and again, 7 inches last night and more for sunday, let it rain, let it rain. About a mountain of 10'+ at the end of my driveway, all for free to anybody who wants it.

KI Sawyer

was stationed there from '62-'64.
KI Sawyer was a county road commissioner.
saw 40 below before wind chill.
then went to Nam. 120 in the shade.
and they had the effrontery to ask if I wanted to re-up. My answer was not very civil, to say the least.
don't mean to steal the thread. apologies.

I finally fixed the snow blower, so the snow's probably done for the season. smile Parts were backordered for weeks.

Another 8" Yesterday

No big deal, just another 8" in Connecticut.

My neighbor never shoveled his deck this season, and he has > 3 FT on his deck right now. The snow is up to the hand rail.

Many years ago, people would put a tennis ball on the end of the car antenna so the presence of the car might be seen above the snow piles. But cars don't have antennas that enable that any more. Now we are having plenty of accidents because cars are pulling out from snow canyons.

Temperatures are above freezing today, rare these past 4-6 weeks, plunging back to single digits tonight, and another relentlessly cold week coming up.

I live in Chicago and we've had quite enough. Winter started out promising in December, it was pretty mild then next thing the snow and cold weather blow down from Canada. I wanted to move to Tennessee because it's warmer, but it's been bad down there last few weeks. At least up north we are ready for it, down there they just don't have the equipment and planning ready for it, as evidenced by all the downed power lines and frozen roads.

Howdy neighbor.

I guess you didn't live here 5 years ago when we got back to back multiple feet of snow. That was enough to last me the rest of my days.

In the DC area....

its actually been a relatively mild snow year, but the weatherman blew their forecast last week (10 inches versus a projected 4-6).
