No need to tell my back. I just shovelled 7-8 inches off the driveway.

Oh well, this gives me an excuse to catch up on paperwork.

Haven't seen bare ground since early December! Next week more frigid temps. No thaw in sight.

I've got about the same amount outside. We don't get anywhere near the snow we used to get in the 50s and 60s. My Parents (jokingly) insist I was shorter then [Linked Image] , but I remember waking up to find the snow drifted up against the house to the second floor. I don't think I've seen snow drifts on Long Island in decades.

Anybody got any good snow pictures?

Northern Maine got close to 3 feet of snow in 2 different storms earlier this week. It was topped off by 30 to 40 mph winds during and after the storm. In case you have never been up there [Linked Image] its potato country with huge fields very condusive to drifting snow. Snow banks besides the road are so tall in places one could touch the phone lines on the telephone poles.

We had some snow here in eastern England last week. About a half inch settled on the roads, so as usual the whole region ground to almost a standstill.

It's all thawed and gone now though. The last real heavy snowfall which drifted and stayed for days must have been over 10 years ago. Even that wasn't much compared to the winter of 1977/78 -- I remember walking to school through about two feet of the stuff!

That is what I see when I look out my kitchen window.
It is Tyree mountain in the clouds.
Being from Wisconsin originally, I love the snow, though glad we don't get as much here as in Wisconsin. I think I have shoveled snow here twice since *99, and that was for the fun of it, cause the snow had melted by late afternoon.
