It can stop snowing any day now. We've got 40 cm already, with another 20 cm to come tonight. Seriously getting sick of snow.


Plus, our snowblower kakked out this morning.

LOL, I know the feeling. And after visiting my gf in Ottawa and seeing almost all of it gone, from the rain. Then I come home as it is snowing some more and I look in the back yard and soon enough my boat will disappear under a pile of white.

On the flip side, we've got zero snow on the bald butt prairie here southwest of Calgary . . . . in fact, I took Abby & Keeper on a 13 km hike in Kananaskis County in the full bore Rockies today and mostly the dust was rising around my boots on some trails that would normally be heaven for cross-country skiers.

I think it was the mildest January here since 1941.

Sorry!!!

Rick C,

Yeah I have heard. I was talking to a friend in Calgary on the phone earlier today and she was making fun of me in the land of snow. If you want some, I am sure I could make you a deal. For free even, ;) .

Just wondering why we had to have our entire ration of winter snow in 2 days. Now, don't get me wrong, if we can ski on it, I'm okay with that, but it's the drivers who insist on barrelling down the road like it's 30 degrees celcius and sunny that a: make my job very secure, and b: scare the hell outta me.

We're getting the first blossoms here and my camellias have been blooming for a week! About 65F and sunny today. I'll be crying when the temperatures hit 100F. The next 4 months should be pretty nice.

SNOW DAY!!! :D :D My son is totally stoked, since Friday was a PA day and the busses were cancelled today - he got a 4-day week-end. We had bought him a body board during the last snow fall, and it all melted before he had a chance to enjoy it. I'm not a real fan of winter, but I am Canadian :ca: so I'm of the firm belief that you can't call it "winter" unless you've had a handful of major dumpings like this (and their accompanying school bus cancellations). ;)

Well, the snow pretty well stopped as soon as I wrote that it started... Just a dusting.:(

We're a bit snowy these last two days, but in general this has been and amazingly mild winter. If this is the result of global warming and holes in the ozone, I'm gonna go burn some plastics....Kidding, kidding. Don't let melanie read that.

OMG, if Mel were here she'd go into premature labor.:eek: :eek:

No, isn't it el Niņo? I thought el niņo came and then la Niņa came after (cooling after the heat). There was no mention of el Niņo, but la Niņa is coming this summer (it's going to be a cold summer they say). Seems like el Niņo to me.

LOL, Prin now it's El nOnO. The little lesser know brother. ;)

If any one wants some snow, they can come here and take all they want. Every time there is a big dumping (every other day), they pile it up in front of my house and then take it away just before the next dumping.

Did someone say they want snow? Hubby had to shovel his way into the house last night because of the drifts that had piled up in front of the front door.

Since I'm only allowed one pic per post, I'll have to do this the hard way. Here's a shot from the front door...

Yeah, Phoebe loves the snow. :love: She rolls in it, burrows in it, lies right down in it...she's really funny to watch. Hey, you're more than welcome to come up for a visit. I think 2 feet is just about what we got up here! :eek:

I LOVE the pictures of her, looks like you guys had as much as we did. Was dying this morning as I let our boys out into the back yard, Bear disappeared up to his neck and Kaos disappeared completely!
