How much more did you get? On Monday we received an additional inch of snow. Most of it has melted now but it was nice to have a White Christmas.

We must have close to a foot now and it is not going anywhere for the next few months.

We had eight Inches yesterday and last night! a lot for this area. It probably won't thaw this week but will be great insulation for our plants if it gets as cold as predicted tonight...we're gonna take a walk with dog and cat and camera.

I would love to see more of your winter pictures. The weather forecasters are predicting 6-10 inches today. I have the day off and I am enjoying watching it come down. I will take some pictures later on. Cheers to all!

Here is a picture taken from my tent at the end of October when I went to the RMH Workshop in Missoula. Unfortunately, I don't have a good picture of the tent itself. It was pretty funny to see it covered with snow.

What an adventure! Was it like that the whole weekend?

Actually, only the Saturday morning. I think it all melted during the day.

We got back home on Jan 1st after 10 days away and that is how we found our front door. We got 45 cm (~15 in) of snow last week while we were away. Fortunately our neighbour had taken care of the driveway. I think I would still be shovelling if he didn't...

Sorry about the image quality, I only had my cell phone.

This video about a bad morning in the snow has been out there 4 years already, though if you haven't seen it, it's worth a watch. Too funny.

40 inches in Hamden, CT. That sounds like so much fun! The ski and snowmobile country north of me was rocking yesterday from the snow they received.

Though I am itching to get outside and garden now...

Wow! And I thought we got lots of snow this winter when we got the 45 cm (~15 in) of snow over the Christmas holiday.

Rion, I hear you, I am looking forward gardening too!

We are having a really strange winter. It was above 0 C (32 F) yesterday and it is supposed to rain by the end of the week. The good side is that it makes room for more snow next week!

About 50 inches over the average for the year in snowfall and winter isn't over yet!
