    It ain't Boston

    but this is pretty unusual for us... the weather guessers reported about 7 inches in our area.
    The wife took these this morning.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Here in NE Ohio, it's been the coldest winter since 1976 so far, but we're actually 'behind' on snow. Only 59" so far this winter. Average is closer to 100". It's only been above freezing (32F) three times since the first of the year, and snow that we got in December is still on the ground. At this rate, it won't melt until June!

    We'll see this gone by next week... it's supposed to snow again tonight, but then rain starts on Saturday and all next week.... it's suppose to reach near 50 degrees by this time next week. In the 9 years I've lived here, I think this is the 3rd ground covering snow we've seen.

    Remind me not to move there Although I'll bet the cross country sking is pretty good - sort of miss being able to walk out the back door, drop the skies and head out for 10 miles like I could when I was a kid.

    Balmy 50-60F here all week. You guys back east got all the weather this year, the glaciers are already melting on the mountains which is not good for the water situation this summer! We've also already had fire risk warnings in the area.

    Bout what we got up the rode Chuck. We got around 3" on top of the inch or so of ice and snow that we got last week. We have 11 days built into the school calendar for weather. They've already called off tomorrow which will make us using 10 of those. We've been out nine straight days. I'm not complaining, it's just more shop time for me!

    Looks like a good day to sit by the fire and have a nice cup of coffee.

    Yeah, your weather and ours have been about the same. We do get some colder nights, due mainly to the 'lake effect' cold coming off the totally frozen Lake Erie. We saw -20F one night last week, and again on Monday. Luckily, though, we've not had any major power outages this winter. One was about three hours, but that's it so far.
