Woke up to this, this afternoon. It was bad before I went to sleep, but then it got REALLY bad!

This is from the balcony of my apartment.. The snow on the railing wasn't there at 9AM, and I took this pics around 1PM.

We've had about 16" so far since yesterday. At least living in an apartment you don't have to shovel it yourself. ;)

Haha this is true.. I don't have to pay rent, Internet, phone, or utilities either ;)

At least you won't have water shortages this summer. We're done for the year with our rainy season, and got less than 10". :(

And it is still coming down quite hard.

I actually think I am going to go shovel for a little...no real reason, seeing as we are looking at getting another 5-6", at least.

We missed that huge storm, luckily.
Although maybe it would have been nice to get loads of snow so it would cover up all that ice on our roads...I have to walk about 3/4 a mile 2 times a day, one in the morning one at night, well thursday I fell 11 times. I'm bruised, it's painful...We need to dance around in circles with sticks on fire chanting Spring rituals, anything about spring, anything relating to spring, ANYTHING!

I seriously hate the snow, and winter time for that matter.. It's almost the middle of March and we keep getting dumped on! It sucks, especially since I don't have a car and have to hitchhike to/from work.

Tanner,

I'm moving back to GR in like three weeks from the west coast, you may not not want to hear this but I really miss a good Michigan winter! I am definitly out of practice when it comes to driving in the snow. So if you see a red pontiac on the highway this winter do us both a favor and keep your distance!

Man, I know what you mean! I live in Alabama and we had about 1/2 inch on the ground! J/K! We really did have the snow on the ground this morning but it was gone this afternoon. I can't imagine what it would be like living in your part of the world. I hate snow!

It snowed from about 8 am yesterday to about 5 pm today. I came home for spring break yesterday in it. I didn't think it was bad, but apparently everyone else did. There were quite a few people spun out on the median of I-70 and 75. Yay for a snowing spring break

More pics! Sorry for the over-exposure! Most of the yellowish-ness you see is very fine snow particles blowing everywhere.. Gonna go back and take some better ones after I post these.

EDIT: Okay, so most of them didn't turn out right.. Trying to get the right settings on my cam.. But I did manage to get a good one.. You can actually almost see the snow blowing around.

I missed the one good snowfall we had this year.

If we get that kind of accumulation, everything shuts down and stays home. I love snow. It's beautiful, and it gets me off work. Please send the stuff down here, we'll take care of it for you.

Sooooo it's gotten even worse out.. More pics! Should've used the tripod again, but was too lazy.. Haha

I loved that - thanks MHC! Didn't realize dogs actually liked playing in that stuff. Every dog we have had in the past avoided snow at all costs. That dog was having a ball.

I'll take some of that snow :)

I love the snow - South West England is not a good place to live if you like the snow (big kids included)!

I'd love to live in Canada - looks great!

My brother-in-law lives in Québec city and they had it pretty rough this year too. He has a two story house and the snow comes up to the second floor windows !

He sent us pictures a few weeks ago via email. And it has snowed a few times since then !

They're predicting another snow storm this Wednesday.

Here's one of the pictures he sent... Keep in mind that it has snowed since at least a couple of times and that it will snow again this Wednesday, more than likely.

You can see a chimney and part of a roof on the upper left side. Not sure if that's one of his neighbour's house or his though.

In any case, that much snow is scary... :Oops:

We just got even more snow last night. I too am utterly sick of the snow. Somedays I wonder why I moved from East Tennessee which got maybe 2 inches of snow a year, all the way to Nova Scotia where I will see 7 or 8 foot of snow fall a year

I am a big kid - to me this is great - I can't believe people get sick of the snow :P

I guess you get sick of the white stuff after a while huh?

I know a lot of people that have moved away from nicer parts of the UK (my self included) and then noticed what they no longer have - i.e. beautiful hills or the moors or a nice coast-line. It's only when you don't have it that you actually miss it.

You are reminding me that I should not have passed up my annual winter trip to the Big Island, for one later in the year. Of all the times I have been to the Big Island in the winter, I have never had the opportunity to photograph Mauna Kea, or Mauna Loa, with their snow caps in place. Now I wish I had not put the trip off... :(

For us, snowfall this winter season has been below average, in the DC area.... so anyone wanting to get rid of some snow, feel free to send some our way... :) I love the stuff.

I have sunny and 82F.

It always gets warmer in the Valley and LA. In August when it's 90 down there, it will still be Sunny and 73 up here. Mind you "down there" and "up here" are less than 75 miles apart too. The high today is set to be a beautiful 72.

Hey I'm in Ontario, too =) LOTS of snow lately, eh?!
It's been crazy here in London... I was up in St.Catharines and that was even worse.
You really need to take up snowboarding, then you'll appreciate it =P
It's really been cold and blustery though... I'm sick of it, too!

No snow here thank God. I was in this in late January (Lake Tahoe). Soooo much snow!
