    We started with sleet yesterday, and started snowing and is snowing now. Jeff measured the top rail to our deck. We have 6" of snow. Anyone else getting the white stuff?

    I'm surrounded by a sea of white (well, dirty white now) here in Ottawa, Ontario. Please Lord, may we have Spring?

    We had a white Christmas... again! I'm thankful that this winter the snowfall has been light, at least so far. The last couple of winters we've seen about twice the amount of snow that we usually get, and it is a lot of work for me clearing the snow from around our home and plowing the road and driveway. So far I've had it pretty easy. We gotten about 3 feet of the white stuff so far this winter.

    Snowing here in eastern Nebraska since 8pm, wet heavy snow and a few hours ago has changed to very light snow, and still snowing maybe 4" so far, and very slick to drive on with that packed slush base.

    Today is my granddaughter Raven's 12th birthday. Unfortunately, due to the weather her party was cancelled until further notice. I am sure a lot of people will be watching the Chiefs game today which starts at 3:35.

    Just drove home in it. Snow started here around 11am was bad enough to close the office and all the branches and have everyone go home at 3pm. I had to stop at the bottom of the hill and switch to 4 wheel drive to get up the hill and into the driveway.

    Still only a dusting of snow on the ground here in Southern Ontario. It's highly unusual for this time of year. I wish we would have some snow so we could go cross country skiing...

    Update: We had 6", and now 8". We did have some nice sunny days even low 50's, but Old Man Winter has reared his ugly :eek: head!

    We got 10 inches between 2 pm yesterday afternoon and 2 pm today. Then it changed to sleet and then light rain.

    Here too, it (almost) never snows.:( I'm waiting for some of that global wa....er climate cha...or whatever they're calling it now to happen, so maybe we can get more of that strange white stuff then.;)

    We cleaned the snow off of the driveway, and all the rails you see. It looks much better, and went to pick up a few things at the store. The streets are in good shape which is great! Enjoy your Sunday, and week ahead.

    I'm leaving the latest snowfall on my deck for a while. If I clear it off it'll immediately snow again...

    Here in Michigan we are getting well below average because of el Nino. The precipitation goes along the southern tier of states. We have not gotten less than 1" in the last two storms that buzzed by us in the Ohio valley.
