Monday it was gone almost immediately when the snow turned to rain and the only snow left here now is what the sun hasn't hit yet. And people talk about Global Warming. =))


I am seeing Facebook status messages saying "Snow Day!" It is soooooo funny to see down here!

I am enjoying the snow. It has finally dropped enough in my area that has begun to stick! Hurrah!

I'm in Ireland. It's raining here - again. It's not called the Emerald Isle because there's not emough precipitation to keep the grass watered. In fact it's been raining steadily for about a month now. Lots of places are flooding! Very sad lots of people flooded out of their homes and lots of buisnesses and farmers loosing their livelihoods due to flood damage. Everyone's rallying around trying to help out and fund raise though. It's nice to see everyone rising to the challenge and helping their neighbours.

So, I live in south east TX and we got snow today!!!!! I've never seen it come down this hard, and I've never seen it happen two years in a row!!! (It snowed about this time last year) So anyway I thought I would share some pics of the snow, and my dogs and I in it. Patches in my Australian Shepherd dog, and Honey is my Golden Retriever mix. Enjoy!!!

I'm in England and it is pouring down with rain, very windy and cold, extremely cold at night and at dawn. And as usual it only gets worse at this time of year(But other than that I love December)......

Well, here in Alberta we are currently having our annual horrendous snowstorm, so I thought I’d stop by and post some pictures and stuff. It blew in last night - a bunch of roads are closed and there’s a severe weather warning out and stuff. There's a minor highway that’s just behind our property, and just beyond it is the major highway. This morning the snow was blowing so much you couldn’t even see the minor highway, never mind the major one.

ImageImage

The view from our front door. That drift on the right is at least a couple feet deep. And our back door window. My mom was laughing that people buy window stickers to make their windows look like that. We can’t even get out our back door, there’s so much snow.

Image

See that huge mound of snow behind the swing set? Yeah, there’s a bright pink car under there somewhere.

Four of us were going to go pick up necessities such as milk and water, but our driveway’s chock-full of drifts that not even our hulking Suburban can get through. It cleared up a little this afternoon, so my uncle called everyone who lives near him and asked if they needed anything and he’d pick it up for them. (He’s nice.) My dad went with him. My brother has two steel drum gigs to play tonight, and he got stuck when he tried to leave for them, but I don’t think even the worst storm of the year can keep him from his drums. ;)

That's what I imagine when I think about England: rain. :)
hyaline12, that's a lot of snow..! I wish it looked like that here, but no, just some powder here and there.

I tend to think of England as a rainy place too...

And, it is with a bit of pleasure I announce the season's first winter storm warning. (Though I think we're getting soft, when they issue a warning for a mere 4+ inches of snow - it is December, after all. ;)) )

And as is typical for this time of year, the storm will be followed by cooler temperatures (lows around 0F/-17C and highs around 10F/-12C) through the rest of the week.

I think we'll have a white Christmas. :)

We're having similar weather, stargazer. Our beautiful "fall" officially ended on Friday with an absolute avalanche of snow that had me shoveling my driveway and sidewalk most of Friday night, and a big chunk of Saturday afternoon.

It is very, very cold right now.

*contemplates a trip to Alberta to see some snow* ;)

Actually, the snow arrived a couple hours ago, and though it's only an inch or so thus far, it's the winds that are making things interesting outside. To the south (southern Minnesota and Iowa), blizzard conditions are already being reported. The storm is currently centered in Colorado, so areas to my south and west (like Kansas and Nebraska) are getting the most action right now.

It'll rapidly move to the northeast, bringing over a foot of snow to southern Minnesota - and it's so flat down there that the accompanying winds (exceeding 40 mph/65 kph) will blow it all over the place. It'll then pass through Wisconsin (over 15 inches of snow expected), Michigan, and Ontario.

Temps will drop below 0F/-17C for the first time here this season, with windchills approaching -40F/C. Sites in Montana are already reporting windchills below -40. Those are respectible readings. ;)

The odd thing is, while we can have long stretches of severe cold, we don't get nearly as much snow as other parts of Canada. But, it usually happens this way. One or two huge storms a year, with a whole lot of nothing in between. It's good, though, because the summer was severely dry. Since we get very little rain, we need the snow to hydrate the soil.

The best part was standing in my driveway, watching the people who are too cheap to buy snow tires trying to navigate the ice-covered streets with their all-seasons.

New Englander here...and the snow is REALLY coming down. :( It's supposed turn to rain later, which could mean ICE. !!! We are so not looking forward to a repeat of last year, when we had an enormous ice storm causing the power to go down for several days...Hopefully it doesn't get that bad again!
