We've had about 4 or 5 decent snowfalls of 6 inches or more this winter so far. I think the most at one time was about 10 inches. So maybe a little more than the average I'm used to, definitely more than last year. I only had to shovel a snowdrift behind my car once...it actually felt kinda good. Nothing has really melted this year other than on the streets, so we have an average of close to two feet of snow everywhere, although it blows around so it's mostly piled up in some places, and not much in other places.
Sadly, still no snow days for me :( 33 years and counting...
Peter, I'm practically your neighbor, and we haven't had much snow this year at least according to AK standards!! LOL
It's been bitter cold here though, just 17 below last week. I hope we get more snow, we're suppose to. Last year we were dumped on hard!! I don't have the figures....but last year was record breaking in many years!!
Poor Brian is truly quite blue
Im mad at all of you
Here I shovel with no relief in sight
Nobody even says BRIAN,WE WILL HELP YOU.SEE YOU TONIGHT
Im up to my can in the white out blues
Is this really good news?
Dont laugh,sneer,and jeer
I will be lucky if Im done next year
So,with Lent coming up,please give me a hand
Bring rock salt,shovels and loads and loads of sand
Yesterday the storm started out with freezing rain, which after several hours turned to snow but the snow only lasted less than an hour before turning over to rain again
And out of all the days it has to do this, I drove from Hudson to Chippewa Falls yesterday and halfway through the trip is when the freezing rain started and when I started noticing cars in the ditch which meant that I need to slow down before I end up in the ditch. I made it safely to my destination but now I have to be up and ready by 5:30 a.m. to go to work (I start a new job tomorrow ) but the street that I am on is at the end of the road, is the last to get plowed, and there is a sheet of ice on the driveway and I really hope that the ice wont be there in the morning so I can make it to the street and to work.
Other than the freezing rain, little snow, and very cold winds out here in the Chippewa Valley, it is nice, though I am ready for spring to be here.
