Weather forcast: A chance of snow!


I don't understand why I can see them and you can't. I'm clicking on the website the same way you do. Hmmm

I'll try sending them through photobucket.com.

Atlantic - Is it possible for you to erase the areas where the pictures are suppose to be?

Sorry again.

I don't know, maybe it is something on my end.

I hope this works. There should be 6 of them. I'll post the other 6 too.

Yep, I see them now. They did get a little more than just a "dusting" of snow didn't they?

I'm technologically challenged. I called my daughter and she walked me through it. I can see them this time too. Maybe I'm just seeing things.

It makes you wish you came from a large family, so you have something to eat until spring.

RIP, Mr Donner.

.....

It is a polar bear you see, and if you turn up your speakers, you'll hear him reciting that poem.

Well, I'm embarrassed to say this, but apparently a few of these pictures are not from the same storm in Orillia. They're from a section of the Trans Labrador Highway in Canada.

http://www.ns.ec.gc.ca/weather/severe/2 ... 004_e.html

I guess a few of these pictures have been credited to different storms from parts of the U.S. and Canada. I'm just guessing, but someone must have added them to the other pictures as the email was passed along over the past few years.

http://www.snopes.com/photos/natural/oswego.asp

As long as it's not in this part of the state, I don't really care where the snow fell , but my information was wrong so I wanted to add this other info. Sorry about that.

I wonder if they found any cars when they were plowing.

Imagine how that car would have gotten there: A weather man knows the storm is coming and says to his wife, "Honey, here's some money, I want you to go shopping and buy yourself something nice. But take the highway, it'll be faster".

YEAH!!! Them 15+ foot snow drifts were in Labrador in Canada. We Canadians retain the title of "most snowed in people on the planet". Can you imagine making snow caves in them #$%&ing drifts?

For those who don't know where "Labrador" is, it's the extreme eastern coast of Canada above the St. Lawrence seaway. Essentially, it consists of fishing villages with small populations of less than 1000 each.

http://atlas.nrcan.gc.ca/site/englis...map_image_view

Labrador is part of the mainland, but it's considered "part of Newfoundland" even though Newfoundland is an island south of Labrador. That's because the population of the island of "Newfoundland" is large compared to the very sparsely populated Labrador with less than one person per square mile. The largest population center in all of Labrador is the combined towns of Happy Valley and Goose Bay (which used to be an important airport during WWII) with a combined population of just under 8,000 people.

http://www.happyvalley-goosebay.com/

I still can't imagine how they got that John Deere excavator to sit on top of that huge snow drift on the Snopes web page Gma2rjc cited. To my way of thinking, that excavator should have sunk so deep in that snow drift, it woulda been stuck there till spring. But, the picture doesn't show any plywood or anything under the tracks to distribute it's weight. I can only surmise that the picture was taken several weeks after the snow fell, and then on a very cold day. (Snow drifts tend to harden up with time cuz the individual snow flakes freeze to each other making the whole drift more solid and sturdy.) The only thing about that picture more amazing than the size of the snow is the fact that it could support the weight of that excavator. Chris Angel could do something with that.
