What's the snow like in your area?

All I can say is Brrrrrrrrrr! after reading about all of the snow not so far North of where I am located. We haven't had much snow this winter -- only one storm two weeks ago that "dumped" a meager 4" on our area resulting in the last of our eight Winter Weather days at school. Two weeks ago, we had the second of our two ice storms that resulted in three Winter Weather days at school; and three weeks ago, we had our first ice storm that resulted in four Winter Weather days at school. This week, we had 14 inches (yes that is fourteen) of rain in 24-hours (Monday into Tuesday). We are on Spring Break this week, but the schools that weren't on Spring Break missed another two or three days due to high water/flooding. I am just hoping that we are able to resume school on Monday -- the two primary highways that lead up to our school are absolutely surrounded by flood waters and the river to which these smaller streams are tributaries isn't expected to crest until the middle to end of next week. It seems like this winter has been a season of either extreme storms or almost nothing at all!

Happy Spring Blizzard!

It's the second day of Spring, and we're expecting somewhere between 8 - 12 inches of snow before tomorrow.

Winter 2008

We are North of Spokane, Washington. This is what the 22' 67 Safari looked like after a snow storm in January. We had 5' of snow on the ground. Today we had 7". This winter was the third winter on record for the most snow in the area. I'm tired of it. And all through it I have been restoring the Safari. I'm almost done with the inside. Will send pictures when the inside is finished.
I have never sent pictures before so I hope you get them.

Custom67, for a newie at picture posting, you sent us two beautiful snapshots! I can only imagine how hopeful 7" of snow must seem after 5 feet. Here in Missouri we will have a cold Easter, but at least we'll not be driving down snowy lanes with towering walls of snow surrounding us. Here's to a bright warm springtime for everyone...soon Happy Easter, forum! ~G

If it snowed here, people would be crashing into each other, abandoning their cars, animals would starve in the fields, people would commit suicide from the angst, water pipes would freeze... I couldn't imagine what would happen if any of it accumulated...

Most of the mini marts and gas stations around here sell "snow cones", but that's about it. 70's in the daytime, 50's at night.

Yeah...definitely location matters! Spring-like temps will be with us soon and we will be just reminiscing about this winter mess before you know it!
