Winter Wonderland: It's Snowing

Well, for the past two days, it's been snowing here. It seems to come later and later each year. I remember when we used to get snow in October. Then, as the years went by, and the decades, we wouldn't get snow until November and now it doesn't start falling until December. One thing I don't look forward to? When it gets so cold that even when you have the heat turned up, it's still cold. Better yet? When the inclement weather is so bad that it knocks out your power, or the neighborhood's power for days on end. Then, there's the obligatory winter storm, or blizzard, that blocks everything in and you have to wait from anywhere from a few days to as long as a week or two before country officials decide it's bad enough to send the plow trucks out.

What about you? How's the weather? Better yet, share your experiences. Turn this into a real discussion topic. :blushing:

Sheesh! It's been snowing here in Michigan all day and we already have at least 3-4 inches and it's still snowing. It's going to be one of those winter seasons. I'll post pics tomorrow.

These past two weeks have been absolutely miserable for me. Here in Michigan, we've had sub zero temperatures, the worst ever. Ranging from two below zero to as low as 15-18 below zero. This has been about a week straight. The only good news on the horizon is that we're supposed to get warmer temperatures from 14 degrees to as high as in the 20's. Definitely a lot better than it has recently been.

Now that brings back memories…I grew up in Michigan. Visited the family for two weeks in February one year and it didn't get above 10 F the whole time.

Hey, I didn't say they were GOOD memories…

Yeah, I was born in Detroit but I've lived in Flint all my life. Trust me, I've seen all kinds of bad weather here, most of it in the middle of winter. But, these brutal below zero temps are something else.

Here in Cleveland its been snowing practically since the beginning of the year.  It took a break for a day, just long enough for all the snow to melt (almost t-shirt weather), then promptly went back to rain, then freezing rain, and back to snow again.

Here in San Diego it was a little over 80 today, with a few clouds. :tongue:

For the last week, the snow melted and it rose up to the fifties where I live.

 

Then over the weekend, the snow returned in full force.

@HotelKatz, same thing happened here and it's still snowing. This year, I don't think the snow is going away as fast as it did in previous years.
