Like ya said...WOW! Less than a foot is forecast for the High Sierras (above 9000') today; probably less than half that for most locations.

I was at over 11,000' this week and it was shirtsleeve weather during the day. Currently a little cooler but they're sure not getting hammered like you guys.

Far out. We've had quite a bit less snow all winter here in sunny northern Alberta, Canada than you guys got in one dump.

I think I have maybe 12" worth of snow in my front yard. I'd bet it's a lot colder here and our snow arrives earlier (most years) and stays longer (most years) than it does in PA. But still, it's never fun digging out from a big dump.........Lord knows I've done that more times than I care to think about.

Here in not so snowy Buffalo, we have less than a foot on the ground. I think we've gotten something like 3 ft since the 1st of the year but haven't had any significant snowfall in at least a week.

I just checked the local weather site & we've gotten a total of about 6' for the entire 09-10 season so far. But areas to our south in the so-called "snowbelt" have received over 21'.

When you grow up with it, you just learn to deal with it...it's no big thing.

Right. I grew up with it too... We don't get as much here as Buffalo and Syracuse, that's for sure. :)

I lived in Plattsburgh for awhile...ground was white from November until April.

We just got 10" here in Eastern Pa, but south of me in Philly, I heard they got 28.5" Like Jam said, when you grow up with it, you get used to it. I live in the middle of 700 acres of woodland and it's beautiful to see. I like the season changes.

I spent a year at USCG LorSta Port Clarence AK, 60 miles north of Nome.

Ground was white from September to June...sort of.

On the open tundra you could see the vegetation year round, but we used to ski off of the roofs of the buildings (all one story) after they got buried by the blowing snow.

For water we'd wait for a few of the local ponds to freeze over and then pull 4' snow fence over them to create drifts. Once the snow fence was buried, we put more fence on top, and so on until we had a 16' mound. Come spring, the snow would melt, refill the ponds, and we'd pump it into the station and store it in huge concrete tanks - after dragging the snow fence out.

That's right, the Philadelphia region got around 28.5"; That's on top of the 25 inches or so at the end of December. Most of the time we're lucky(or unlucky, depending on your point of view) to get one snow like that. And more is supposed to come on Tuesday. They used to make a big deal on the news about 2 inches-maybe they'll stop doing that now.

I lived in Flint Michigan for 2 years in my teens and Pittsburgh Pa from 99-04 y'a'll can keep the snow. It was beutiful to look at and fun to play in but after spending hours digging out the car to go to work just to get sent home early I feel I have no need for it now. And wouldn't ya know it they say we may get snow here in NW Florida tonight and tomorrow morning. Granted if we actually do get real snow (more than a dusting) it would never be like what you guys are seeing uo there but, the people here even the ones from up north can't drive in it. I'll get some hot chocolate and sit on the porch and watch the crashes. Sort of like going to a Nascar race lmao.

I want to go like my grandfather did. Peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming at the top of my lungs like the passengers in his car.

Oh man I forgot abouth this thread. I live in NW Florida not far from the Gulf of Mexico actually and on the 12th we got over an inch here. My daughter took video of it to show her mother who was visiting older daughter in N.C.. She was upset that she wasn't home to see it snow here. lol

"to show her mother who was visiting older daughter in N.C.. She was upset that she wasn't home to see it snow here."

Well, if she was here in NC and just wanted to see snow, she should have just visited us over here in the western part of NC. Still 8" on the ground and another 4"-7" inches due over the next 2 days (Feb. 25-27)...

Personally, I've seen enough snow earlier this winter to do a lifetime. Over 60" this winter as of Feb. 14th and we've still got March to deal with (often the worst month of winter)...

My wife was upset because after leaving Pa she thought she would never see snow again. She saw plenty while she was in N.C. just upset she didn't see it at her house here.
