Ugh, it is snowing as I write this. Normally we Might get snow. This year we have had 5 measurable snowfalls already. This is why I don't live any further north.

We had 4 inches last week. Melted by the end of the day except in the shade. We are close to the mountains. Downtown or the Strip did not get any snow.

Real big pretty flakes slowly falling to the ground. I had a cup of tea and watched it fall. It was fun while it lasted but one day is enough.

I agree with sharon one day is enough. but I want to add if its going to get this cold the least it could do is give us a show with a bit of snow to make the landscape a bit nice to enjoy and not just dormant brown trees and shrubs
we got our 1st dusting last night and now we are getting the second round of the fluffy stuff. I just hope it snows enough to make it worth the fuss

We've had enough to make the ground white for part of a day - twice this year now. Not enough to really even consider as moisture.

Local Kelly, I was out to Phoenix last weekend. Flagstaff had their share, but very little left at 5000 feet and nothing below 4000 feet. The same storm went through dropping snow North of us but mostly bringing us cold. Cold and dry is hard on the plants.

I think we may need to add more "All of the above", "None of the above", "More than one of the above", and "Other" options. Everything except no snow and living south of the equator was true for me. We don't usually have snow. It happens here about once a decade and then only a light dusting. We had some flurries already this year. That was about all we normally get and more than I care to think about. Thus I have almost all of the categories covered in this poll.

Our weather has been running some 10 to 20 degrees below normal for a month or more now. Winter here is usually like spring w/o flowers. It's usually a time for me to do all the garden maintenance I missed in the sweltering heat of summer. This year it has been too cold to do much of anything. I'm definitely ready for this to end.

We have been hit with a winter storm here in Georgia on Sunday evening that we would normally not have. The counties are pretty much shut down. It is official that places will be closed again tomorrow.

I am enjoying my begonias inside. I normally would be at work 6:30 am and home by 7:00 pm. I would miss seeing the morning and afternoon sunlight hit the plants around my home. This time has given me a chance to move some around that need it, pot up plants, water, inventory what I have, clean dead heads and look for more on the web.

We actually got snow (5 inches ) for Christmas day only the 4th time in history here.
This weekend we got another blast of it. 6 & 1/2 inches of pure powdered snow and just got an inch of sleet on top and more sleet expected tonight and tomorrow. Enough already!
I like snow since we never get much but this is extreme now. Mother nature must have stumped her toes.

We started off winter as normal with our first snow before Halloween followed by some small snows. Then comes this pineapple express for about two weeks! No snow below about 9000 feet, but BIG snow above in the mountains with rain in the valleys. Very unusual for us, I thought all my tullips were going to wake up.

Lots of snow now so everything is good. -12F tonight which will probably be the bottom of Winter. This year has been a cake walk so far. Hmmmm I haven't seen any Robins yet sooo this winter thing isn't over yet. What's that I hear in my head? It is a song reminding me not to be so complacent!

Click on the picture and listen to the song! It will probably be -30F at my workplace this morning :O!

Snow, snow, snow, day after day. This is the third day of this storm. Maybe up to 8" on top of the foot or so on the ground. Some melted a couple weeks ago. I don't even know how much we have had this winter. Only people that keep track around here are the weather liars. The rest of us are to busy shoveling!
Would be nice to live farther south where it snows one day & then all melts.

Worst winter here for decades - December was the worst for 110 years. Pic below from the end of November.

Finally turning milder now at last, the snow has gone for the time being, there's even a nice mild 10 forecast for the next few days.

Mid West Michigan, by the lake and such...not too much snow, it goes
about an inch or two and then kinda sinks down, and maybe a few
days later a little more. Now, by the lake, they have lake effect,
like Buffalo NY, but even that is not as bad.

I think Michigan is part of global changes and there is so much less
snow and rain here, its almost desert like sometimes. too many
droughts.

Well back to work for me tomorrow. Report in at 11 a.m. With the school break, weather and everything else in between. I haven't seen my desk in a month. They do predict freeze tonight so who knows. Only the "Shadow" knows.

I feel for the person that has to use vacation days. It's an act of God the weather. We are not in control of it. So, why not declare it a snow day. That's really to bad. i hope they fair out better than using earn days for that winter storm.

I chose "No snow here, but we usually get some by now" because it is the closest to correct for us in Central Texas. We usually have a little ice or snow during the winter to spring, sometimes in December and sometimes as late as April. But, so far this year, none. We finally got some rain, about 3 inches in the last two weeks, and for the moisture we are grateful.

I hate snow and ice, or just cold weather in general. I had to insulate the fish pond to keep the fish from freezing solid!!!!!!!!

This is Thursday morning, and it finally got above freezing this afternoon after three days hovering from 15-28 degrees. Had about 6-8 inches of heavy wet snow that turned to ice, and hoping what's left leaves ASAP. The oak limbs were touching the ground Sunday, Thankfully none of them broke this year. Lost a couple big one's last year in front.

Snow at Christmas is nice, snow during vacation is OK, but SNOW DAYS! Ugh. Not to mention all the HP spots are where they park the snow, the wheelchair doesn't have snow tires, whine whine whine!

We had 6 inches here, about 5 inches more than we usually get on the rare occasions that it does snow. As of this AM we still had 4.5 inches on the deck. The top 1/2 inch is ice. There's been no school all week. We were just able to get out of our subdivision yesterday. 1st time since Sunday. I know 6 inches isn't much to northerners, but they have equipment to handle this situation and we sure don't. They are using front end loaders to plow the roads!

I've only lived here for six winters--and I don't remember this much snow ever before. When I comment on this fact, the old Cape Codders snort and say "This! This is nothing! You should have been here in the winter of 2004/5!" But it started earlier (Dec. 10) and the ground has stayed covered since then, which it usually doesn't. Probably good for the garden as snow insulation.
My vote was for more snow than usual.

Way too much snow and it will not go away! It has been over 3 weeks since the current snowpack on our streets and parking lots fell. We have been blessed with light flurries every few days since, so that everything stays nice and white. The city is only clearing the primary and secondary routes, so there are only ruts to drive in on the neighborhood roads.
I hope that summer is not as bad as this winter has been.
