I've had enough of the snow now, shovelling, wheelbarrowing, slipping, skidding, freezing, soaking, gritting and salting - and even photographing. I decided not to take ANY more snow photos. But I can't avoid it. Went out today to get a snap for the weekly comp. Nearly got the car stuck, then slipped several times and almost fell in a puddle, and couldn't get a shot without some of the white stuff in the photo.

4-8 inches expected here today. So far, about 4 inches. Anyone want to help me shovel? :P

We've had continuous cover since mid-November, with more falling to top up any that managed to melt. Another two inches the night before last which I spent most of the morning clearing, and woke today to find another 2 inches has undone all my good work. Just going out with the shovel again now...

This is what I'm facing Tues/Wed. They say it'll be the worst storm we've had in the last 3yrs. I will be out and about in my 4 x 4 (long story) and will take the camera, hoping something interesting comes my way.

Saw on the ABC News last week, that the east coast of America have had record snow falls, and many states/cities are running out of money to clear it.  :o

I hope we do not get more snow, because I feel so unsafe walking and that means I stayed in doors.

Yes, they've taken a pounding, but until now, those storms have all passed south of us, across the great lakes to pick up a large amount of moisture. Buffalo NY has been pounded a few times. Our CBC tv network is now reporting "near paralyzing conditions". Windsor Ont. is looking to get up to 40 cm. I've been emailing a friend who lives there, who's been laughing at me all winter about the fact his lawn is still green. Initially he said that the forecast was a mistake, but he just telephoned me to tell me that the Detroit radio stations are in a panic, while the local Windsor station is reporting nothing.  :o

Forget the snow. The ice is more of a problem now! It was freezing cold then it was sleeting and freezing rain for about a day - day and a half. LOL

It took me almost 2 hours to drive home yesterday when it usually takes about 20 minutes. There were downed power lines, tress, debris all of the the roads and a thick sheet of ice everywhere. Took me 15 minutes to clear the thick layer of ice off my car before leaving for work. Then I ran into 2 road blocks and had to help remove tree limbs and debris from the road or I couldn't get by.

Well before the storm hit, they were calling it "Snowmaggedon" after it fizzled they called it "what was all the fuss about?" We got off lucky it shifted south apparently and my area only got half of what was predicted. Nice thing about it, people stayed home and so the roads were pretty easy to navigate despite the snow.

Went well south of you.

The US is calling it Snowzilla. Texas had rolling blackouts after the windmills packed up and demand soared because of the cold. My eldest daughter in Oklahoma City is making snowmen.

Yes, there has been snow falls here in the US where there usually is not. But in the NE (where I live) there is mostly ice and a lot of winds. To make it worse, it melts during the day leaving puddles everywhere, then freezes again at night. LOL

Yeah, luckily, it's been getting up in the temps during the day lately even though it get pretty cold at night. Hopefully, the worst is over but I doubt it. LOL
