    My feeling on snow (which I no longer believe exists) is that either none and balmy, or bury me. Oh, and after I get done playing in it - it needs to go away.

    Strange as it may seem - this does exist. It is called live in the tropics and an airline ticket.

    We're supposed to be getting 10-14 inches by the time the storm's over. At least we've got big tractors to shovel/plow us out and industrial generators to keep us running.

    Be Prepared!
    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.

    We're getting buried as well. The storm moved into South Western Ontario sometime last night. By the looks of it we have around 8" of accumulation so far, but we're just getting into the heavier snowfalls. It's absolutely gorgeous! Great to have snow for Christmas. I live in Cambridge, ON where we don't get too much added amounts from lake affect snow, however for those who do you are in for a massive amount of snowfall. My guess is that it will shut down Toronto again like it did a decade ago. Enjoy everyone. I know I will.

    Thats awesome. For once I do not feel jealous. We have such a wicked blizzard going on here you can barely see across the street. I just wish I did not have to study all day, I am missing some rally nice weather.

    I haven't seen the news for a day or so, are they still calling this a 'noreaster?

    Great pics Tom! Got to love how clean everything looks after a fresh snowfall. Tomorrow it's going to look like a brown mush ... at least on the roads.

    Things are tough all across America right now weather wise. I had to contend with this ice while getting my morning paper off the front walk.

    The Pacific Northwest must be the only place not getting walloped. We're supposed to have rain all week--still haven't seen any though. No snow...yet...

    No they're not. If you didn't experience well defined, extreme seasons you'd never appreciate them individually.

    I almost feel bad for people who do not get to have snow storms, or who can see their lawns in the winter. Winter is my favorite season, there is so much to do in the outdoors. Of course we like to tell southerners that it is terrible that way we have more of the land to ourselves. Winter is awesome. Days when there are wicked storms are the best to go Christmas shopping, you don't have to worry about crowds, unless you live in the eleventh province.

    Come on, you live in Regina. I'm assuming you own a snowmobile or something for winter fun? It's at least a good excuse to go drinking afterwards.
