Pretoria, South Africa

I'm south of the equator. Lovely warm weather, and lots of rain...

Mooresville, NC(Zone 7b)

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.

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

Everyone who flew home for Christmas couldn't leave because of snow ... we can't make vacation plans because of snow ... I'm not in favor.

Augusta, GA(Zone 8a)

Much more than normal. Snow is rare here, but with this exceptionally cold late fall and winter, we are bogged down in our second winter mix .

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

No snow in the desert, though a few outlying areas at higher elevation received some flurries during our New Year's cold snap... Grew up in Maine so I know more than I really need to about snow;o)

Las Vegas, NV(Zone 9a)

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.

Poughkeepsie, NY(Zone 6a)

We've had nearly 30 inches so far with 8-14 more coming Tuesday night into Wednesday. I have had enough of this stuff.

Tulsa, OK(Zone 6b)

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

Albuquerque, NM(Zone 7b)

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.

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Cold and dry is rough! Some of my plants don't look so hot right now but all should be fine once spring comes;o) Lost some tomatoes as I was too lazy to cover them - lol. They were holdovers from last spring anyways. Already started seeds for new ones!

Charleston, SC(Zone 9a)

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.

College Park, GA(Zone 7b)

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.

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

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.

College Park, GA(Zone 7b)

You are right. Mother Nature did stumped her toes. LOL

Glenwood Springs, CO(Zone 5b)

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!

Voting more snow than I care to think about


Wishing I was south of the equator and it is summer!


Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

I agree, there should be a choice for "MORE snow than normal" or one for "More than expected or wanted"
OR " Do you even like snow?"

central, NJ(Zone 6b)

There should have been a selection "more than usual and LOVING it"

I LOVE snow, so glad we've had a few snowstorms already and more to come!

Madison, IL(Zone 6b)

The New Year's Eve tornadoes as a result of the unseasonably warm weather makes me glad that the winter weather is back.

Biggs, KY(Zone 6a)

It has been early, often and abundant. I hate the stuff.

Franklin, NC(Zone 6b)

I hate snow.....Just received word our work place is closed for the 2nd day. Means I will have to use vacation days if I want a decent paycheck.

Perth, United Kingdom(Zone 7b)

Britain had its coldest December for 120 years, with snow right at the start of the month all over the country. Snows gone now in the south but some northern areas have had snow on the ground since start of Dec and still not melted.

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

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.

Jasper, AR(Zone 7a)

A few flurries, normal or less than normal really, not a lot of accumulation, about 2" this go round. Way better than ice, but still more than I like or want

Acton, CA(Zone 8b)

It does not snow here...and I HOPE I never live long enough for that to change!

Sparta , TN(Zone 7a)

They Holler for Snow and miss it every time . when they say we are not going to git it we git a bunch and 5 to 6 inches a night for 3 to 4 days . man they must be gittin their degrees out of a Cracker Jacks Box lately for the weather folks .


Northumberland, United Kingdom(Zone 9a)

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.

Queens Anne's Lace covered in 2+ feet of snow.

Hastings, MI(Zone 5b)

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

Pensacola, FL(Zone 8b)

Well Im sick of the snow we have over 30 inches of snow and we are expecting more here in ny.....

(Zone 4b)

42" of snow and counting.... -20 air temperature tonight. think Spring! (a slow thaw)

Newburgh, IN(Zone 6a)

No school again today. Grandkids sledding on the hill until they were frozen. Snow angels. Hot chocolate, movies and popcorn. Whats not to like about today's snowfall?

OK, melt so they can go to school tomorrow!!!!

Lewisville, TX(Zone 7b)

We normally don't get snow but with global warming & being in Texas anything can happen. We are getting a lot of freezing temps at the moment & did get an inch or two of snow on Sunday Jan 2!!

Plano, TX(Zone 8a)

A little snow remains on the ground here in Dallas after a nice storm over the weekend. Nothing like what we had here last winter...thank goodness. Although, snow on Christmas for the first time around DFW in 80+ years was pretty fun last year!

Beautiful, BC(Zone 8b)

Just snowed last night 6" and all the schools are closed and everyone's complaining.

Pensacola, FL(Zone 8b)

Well here is a picurture of all the snow we have gotten here so far!!

College Park, GA(Zone 7b)

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.

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

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.

Hanceville, AL(Zone 7a)

More than we want, and it has been here since Sunday. Today is Thursday and the weatherman says it might get above 32 today. I hope a lot of bugs get killed!!!
