Life: Snow report for the weather-obsessed
It's been snowing since midnight last night. Currently on the deck (which is a bit sheltered) 13 inches.

Here, have a picture.

Last I heard, it's supposed to slack off a little but keep snowing pretty much straight through New Years. Yay for balmy BC weather! ;-)

As for myself, I've improvised draft-stoppers, I have a pot of tea, and I'm going to go now and watch Terry Pratchett's "Hogfather" (Thank you! You know who you are!)

I've got a friend near Seattle who's sending me updates and pics like this. This really isn't normal for ya'll, is it?

Actually, it's done huge one or two day dumps before, but it's the exception rather than the rule. The golf courses have in the past been open year-round, and there have been years the ski-hill could not open.

Snow was so rare around here when I was a kid, my folks would drive up a local mountain to get to actual snow. If we got anything lower down it was wet slop, and schools would close for four inches or more because the city works crews couldn't cope with clearing the streets.

Now it's a foot deep at sea level, dry, powdery, and has been snowing on and off for a week. It's extremely atypical, and causing serious transport problems.

It's also totally cool and I love it. ;-)

Wow. That's a lot of snow especially for where you are.

It truly is. It's caught everyone by surprise, really, and last I heard they're saying some form of snow or other straight through to Christmas, but they seem to change their minds hourly on the forecast.

Eee, I wish some of that snow would find its way to Helsinki! It's all drizzly here. :/

*sends some of the snow your way*

Sounds like you got our normal weather instead. :-D

yikes....that's a fair amount more!

Really? I thought points south had gotten something like a foot and a half?

*knocking on wood like a mad thing*
we're closer enough to the mountain that we seemed to get the -19 temperatures rather than masses of snow this time. I'm actually ok with that at this point because we still got ~4 inches on top of the 24 or so we already had....
