We have 23F here along the river. No wind, but a damp cold.

This is what it looked like yesterday:

taxy, that looks so picture-perfect! Of course I'm saying that as someone who would be on the inside looking out.

Oswego, New York - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rocket, I'm not denying that some areas get lots of snow, some over a short time. Upper VT in 2003 had over 20 feet on the ground during winter and they were still skiing into June. I remember that because my SIL came up in late March 2004 to head to Killington...and we ran into Mud Season. Michigan's UP piles up to the clouds almost any winter. But what I found to be rather incredulous was the comment that one town got 27 feet of snow in 24 hours. It didn't. The Oswego total you just quoted was for just under 11 feet accumulated over two weeks. By my Catholic school math, that averages to less than one measurable foot of snow in any one 24-hour period. But no matter how you look at it, that is one heck of a lot of snow!

Sure, SB is having a heat wave and out temperature is at 13F. with an expected snowfall of two to four inches of snow tomorrow. So much to look forward to. Our temperatures are too low for December. This is January/February weather for us. Mother Nature's hormones are running amok!

New England had its own blizzard in 1978.

Northeastern United States blizzard of 1978 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I was working for the Boston Police Department at the time. I was the only civilian that reported to work every day. It took a lot of walking on my part though to get there. But the police did provide me with transportation home each night.

It's 35 degrees right now. We got a couple inches of snow overnight. Our temps are predicted to be in the high 40's over the weekend. I'm getting out my shorts and sandals.
