In North Vancouver here in Canada, we already had snow but it was at an unusual period of time when snows should not be coming out yet. But the amount of snow was unprecedented ( well, in Vancouver ), lots of trees were falling because of heavy snow. It was a strange snow season for us! :thinking:

We have a ton of snow here in southwestern Ontario. It's been snowing everyday for weeks it seems and really bad for the last week or so. Kids haven't been to school all week in our area. The snow is piled so high everywhere - it's definitely a winter wonderland!! No fun for driving though!

We have had the strangest winter in Michigan. It was soo mild for the longest time. It was almost 80 degrees on Thanksgiving this year! When we went to Texas for the Christmas holidays, we were suprised to find that the weather was exactly the same as back home...wet and in the 50s. We had one freak snow storm in early December, but it melted the same week and warmed right back up again.

And then, all of a sudden, maybe two weeks ago, it got COLD. It started snowing almost every day, all day. Yesterday was the first day I have seen the sun in awhile.

We've been at 0 degrees (or below) every day for a week.

After only two weeks of winter, I am ready for spring!

Same thing happened in Indianapolis. It was freakishly warm all through the end of 2006 and January, but about 2 weeks ago it started to get really cold. We had our first big snowfall on Tuesday. I work on a college campus, and they cancelled classes for the first time in 29 years.

It looks beautiful out, and although it's cold, the wind isn't howling, so it's actually not bad. It's -1 right now, but I'm nice and toasty inside my office, and can look out the window and see the campus covered in white. It looks gorgeous!

None here in Cornwall! We did have a dose of hail this morning but the sky is now blue with big fluffy white clouds.

I just got home from work - I work in a university that has a lot of international students, today all of the first years from warmer climates were having soooo much fun building their first ever snowmen and playing like children.

It was so good to see!
