Its not actually. There are some drifts going on there but still it is at least 30-40 cm's. Like the church sign says, Im done for this year. Need to see some colour again

Notice how high up the school crossing sign that bank is

This last batch was wet heavy snow. One more degree and it would have been rain. Thank goodness for snowblowers and nice people with plowtrucks that drop by at random

Nice pics!

Took this a few months ago:



This, not that long ago:



There's a BBQ in there somewhere.

We have a decent amount of snow, but over the years we have not been getting as much as before. We might have about 60cm on the ground right now, if that. Normally we'd have at least this before Christmas. The danger now too is our winters are so sporadic. We can have one week where it's like 0 and snow is melting, and then have another week where it's -30. This constant hot/cold pattern is bad for ice daming. Hopefully the increased circulation in my attic wont make me a victim of that this year.
