I agree with @Ryansgirl:   This is normal Canada weather from October-April & to be honest I don’t know anything different.  Yesterday it was -57 F (-45 C) where I live.  Talk about horrendous weather! 🙂

My daughter is sledding on the ten foot tall snow bank in front of my house.

@MrsCarnival: haha my dogs too. And it snows here A LOT. We’ve had over 70 inches since Christmas. My daughter has already had five snow days and I’ve had to call into work for snow related stuff five times as well. It is HORRIBLE.

What most people called a “blizzard” is a regular winter occurrence in Alaska. I never think to use that word. All this snow storm hysteria makes me giggle a bit when people start freaking out.

Instead of mass hysteria over a “snow storm” we just say, “Well it’s gonna snow tonight so make sure and wake up a little earlier to brush of your car and plow the driveway cuz the commute is gonna take a bit longer.”

In Utah, you have to get an ABSURD amount of snow and ice for anything to shut down. I lived there for eight years and even in 2-3 feet of snow, with a layer of ice, we go to work.

@MrsCarnival:Giiiiiirl I feel ya on this Minnesota weather. It has gotten to the point where the sunshine makes me think it’s a decent day outside. 🙂 I’m up north of St. Cloud but I haven’t noticed how bad it is this winter because my neighbor plows my driveway with a bobcat so it never seems like it is too deep. Except they barely ever plow my road so I’m constantly skatin on ice. haha It had to be -20 degrees in order for me not to have to go to school. I think that MAYBE happened once the whole time I was in high school. I saw a bunny running around in my yard the other day and I could barely believe it.

Here in Houston we are having problems with the power.  No ice on the roads just in water puddles. But schools have sent kids home because of no power.  It’s suppose to snow here on Friday but it usually melts away.  But it might stay a little while since we have 2-3 days of cold weather.

I did talk to my customer in Canada and she said that the snow was a tall as the top of her fence and that her dogs just walked right on over the top of the fence to the neighbor’s yard!  Too funny!

@MrsCarnival: It wouldn’t be bad if PENNDOT was on top of shit, but they use all of the salt at the beginning of winter when we get snow flurries but when we really start to get real stuff, there are no salt trucks in site. And if you have been here, you know it’s hilly and some of those houses are on like a 5% grade. lol

I live on the NC coast and if it snows ONE INCH everything around here shuts down…schools were closed a few weeks ago for 4 days and it snowed at most 6 inches in several places.  We just don’t know how to deal with snow at the beach…Right now, its 65 degrees and sunny 🙂
