Ok, this isn't funny!
Whomever commissioned it to snow here had better hide! I went all winter without anything but one little spit of snow a couple months back and then this started around 3 pm yesterday. I think we got around 6 inches. Thank goodness it is going to warm up today and tomorrow and it will all melt. I moved south for a reason, ya know! (oh and that is the container of deicer for the deck I told dh to bring up close to the house in case the rain we were supposed to have might get icy because the temps were supposed to drop, year right!)

We have had almost 6 feet of snow this winter and it is by no means over .. we have had blizzards in June before ..

Sorry but no sympathy from the frozen Tundra ..

We got a couple of inches of snow on Monday. Then, it warmed up to the mid 60's by Thursday. And by Thursday evening, we had nine inches of snow on the ground. And today it is supposed to be near 60 again! I wish the weather would just pick a season and go with it!

How gorgeous is that? These photos are wonderful! We don't get pretty snows like this and seldom get any at all....just slush when it does snow and only about 1/2".

We're going to have another 30 cm here this weekend. Uggh. We didn't need that. The city's budget for snow removal is all spent, and there's no more space to dump the snow. The city is a bit chaotic right now, Monday is going to be a total nightmare!

This being said, I can't really complain too much. I work from home most of the time, so I don't need to get out of the house much. And since I live in an apartment building and I don't have a car, I don't have any shoveling to do. Not to mention that there are worst places than Montreal... Quebec city received more than 13 feet of snow this Winter. And they will receive a lot more!

It is pretty!! Once dh was home safe I could enjoy it more...this part of OH we don't see much snow...usually mom in WV has more...but this year I guess it's making up for it and we just haven't seen the ground that much at all...so basically it's just me dealing with cabin fever...

Sorry you guys are having such crappy weather, but I'm happy that for once, it's not Wisconsin.
