    I found an old pic from the winter of 02, I think we had a good amount of snow that year.
    That pile is about 3' of 4' high.

    Blizzard last Christmas - I think we had 18-22" on the ground and 36"+ drifts

    Does make the Christmas lights look pretty, though

    Does contrast a bit with right now...I wonder if wood dries with the real temp or the 'feels like' ? Either way, it should be getting pretty crispy!

    Thanks. This thread reminds me of why I like summer so much! But it's a sunny 74 outside.

    This is what a real winter is..where I live, 3 years ago on Easter weekend (which happened to be the first weekend in April) we received approximately 98 CM of snow (38 inches). Needless to say it was a kick in the teeth to spring flowers!

    We normally receive 350-500 cm of snow per winter.

    Swede, those pictures remind me of Michigan in the Houghton/Hancock area. One winter in the 70's I was doing some work near South Range, MI and was told to stop at a particular house but after telling me it was a yellow house they then said that would not do because I would not be able to see the house although it was in town. I had to count driveways. I got there and could walk into the garage and then knock on the door. You definitely could not see the house! They kept the short driveway open so they could get into the garage. To shovel snow off the roof was a big job because they still had to throw the snow up to get it off the roof! That is the most I'd ever seen.

    Dennis,

    The pictures I posted of the storm is a "typical" storm. Now if we don't get over 1 foot of snow per storm, it's nothing. Like I said, we normally receive between 350-500 cm of snow per winter.

    The pictures where you see my car coming up the road and the one beside the snow bank were taken Easter weekend of 2007.

    I have seen more snow than in those pictures posted but from your story, I think you beat what I have seen in my lifetime (I wasn't around yet in the 1970s....lol).

    Well, I most certainly don't have the same temperatures as Carmacks of Faro but it gets cold :)

    The winter of 2009-2010 was warmer than normal throughout Québec, especially in the eastern and northern parts of the province, where it was extraordinarily warm. Last winter there was barely ANY snow and very mild temps. Some months, the temps were 10 degrees warmer than average.

    Normally, in Jan-Feb we see 3-4 weeks of daytime highs of -17 to -22. At nights it will hit -27 to -30.

    However, where I live is a Maritime climate. The low pressure systems (with snow) warm us up. We get our biggest storms at -5 or so.

    More pictures from the winter of 2007/2008. These ones from clearing the driveway during a storm in March 2008. I forget if it was coming in like a lion or going out like one.

    Uh, maybe it's just me . . . but I don't see anything here . . . unless I'm looking at a photo of a wicked bad blizzard causing a white out . . . or maybe I simply have snowblindness. ;) :)

    Edit . . . never mind . . . after I posted this the pictures popped up!

    Maybe you were not logged on when you saw nothing, you had to log in to post that you saw nothing, and then it was there.

    Okay, the truth be told, I was trying to be a smart aleck and post some Calvin and Hobbs snowmen comics, but they wouldn't open once posted. So, I had to go back into the archives and actually post some winter pictures!
