Not so cold, 2 C (36 F), feels like -2 C (28 F) and it's snowing. We are expecting 15-25 cm (6"-10") of the white stuff. I think I'll avoid driving tomorrow. Every year some people forget how to drive on snow, and it's not fun driving with them on the road. We sometimes get people who panic and just leave their car in the middle of the road.

Pretty warm here. Around 30 I'd say. Wettest snow I've ever seen.

We are around 30 degrees this morning. We had 4 inches of snow when we got up yesterday then it rained all day. We were supposed to get another 3-5 inches but we only got about an inch overnight. I don't know if there is more snow coming or not.

A great deal depends on your tire brand. It has been my experience for some time that Bridgestone tires absolutely suck in wet/snow conditions. On my previous rear drive car, it was like magic when I replaced the Bridgestones that came on the car with Michelins. All of a sudden I had traction!
Andy, not being a driver, I once asked a friend what was the difference between front wheel drive and rear wheel drive. His answer was very educational.

"If you had an elastic and was climbing a mountain, which would you rather do? Push the elastic up the mountain, or pull it up." I understood immediately.

Our temps are in the 50's. But it is raining really hard.

When I got up around 6 am, it was 68 degrees; now it's 45. Been raining most of the morning and it's supposed to continue raining most of the day. The temperature will continue to drop and we might have some snow this evening. Time to get my baking going.

Yeah, that snow is very wet and heavy. The 12 cm (~5") that the Weather Network says we got looks more like 7 or 8 cm (~3"), since it has been packing down and melting. It's been above freezing by 1 degree C since 02h00 (AM).
