Doug, it's always nice to get a nice, new white coat this time of the year, to cover up all that ugly looking dirty stuff, right?

All that "blue" stuff is heading due east. Ours is coming on Tuesday but it looks like you are in for another multiple day event. Sorry!

Thanks for cheering me up John  :'(  We had guests over last night and my friend stated that my entrance path to the house looked like a luge track. High 5ft walls and a layer of ice on the walk. BUT.....we are fortunate....no leaks. The Ice dams look like Ice bergs, they are huge. The icicles scare the birds off the feeder when they come crashing down. I haven't seen the neighbors cat lately that cruises the bird feeder like a snack bar. Hope he didn't get to close. Cat kabob.

Just a winter wonder land. Spring is coming!....Doug

Yeah, I heard Spring is a week away! I wouldn't know about that. Today was 88 degrees and sunny. Rain now & tomorrow too.

I can help you keep cool. How many truckloads of snow do you want?  :)

Today is sunny and above freezing, which is actually pretty warm compared to what I've felt these past few months! All I can hear outside is birds chirping ad the steady 'drip, drip, drip' of snow melting. My room is located just under the roof, and I can occasionally hear a quiet rumble, and then a thud on the ground a few seconds later. It's melting snow rolling off the roof!

42 Fahrenheit here in the Twin Cities. I went for a little walk today and it felt very warm; I am definitely happy to see winter is going away.

48 cm of snow so far in this weekend's blizzard on PEI. Roads, most businesses, and the Confederation Bridge are completely closed, and the storm continues on with very high winds, snow and blowing snow, and plows are off the roads due to lack of visibility. Once again, our car is gone, and our truck barely visible. Arggh! I love winter!

Doug,

The local news in Wisconsin this morning said the Boston area has received more snow this year than any other year since dirt was created. And, they added, you may still get more.

What's up with that?

Global warming is apparently stuck on the west coast for now.
 
Fortunately, the snow pack seems to be melting slowly in our area, so we don't have local flooding issues.

Still snowing, blowing, and no sign of a plow. The Confederation Bridge is still shut down. We are in it for the long haul, I guess. The PEI Golf industry is hoping they will see grass by August! Island Health Services are restricted to Emergency use only, and people still are being told to stay off the roads. Oh, what a fun day!

Latest update (15 mins ago) from Stormwatch:

"Snow plows attempted to go out at noon in Prince and Queens but due to poor visibility, they were pulled from the roads again. Confederation Bridge is still closed to all traffic"

A little better here during the weekend.
15 deg C in the sun, so I had to make the dinner at the veranda:
