Where I work, we have had to schedule people for field repairs and the earliest we can schedule for is 02/11, and today is 02/08. Installs of new services are being moved from today to 02/18. Have already had two people angry at the long delays, but nothing can be done about it.

We got slammed as well, at least 2-3 feet. Now we're about to be hit again. OH, JOY! It was horrible just getting out from under the first blizzard. What made this really bad was that it was Magifest weekend!

We are suppose to get another 18 inches of snow tomorrow night. My refrigerator is full, and the propane man (fire place) is coming tomorrow.

Here is a timelapse that someone did on Snowmaggedon.

Looks like we only got around 4" here in Southern Illinois. I am scheduled to be in DC late next week - I hope you guys are dug out by then.

You'll get more snow in a week than we get in the whole of winter. I'm jealous Smile

CNN just predicted 10 to 20 inches, from DC to Long Island. You may get off light.

We never get this much either. Global warming you know.

I'd love to see the precipitation here. 30-year drought and all...

I'm in the province of Alberta, just east of the Rockies.

There is a lot of snow in the mountains, but once you get to the lower ground, there is much less precipitation. When I was a school boy, it was explained that as the clouds rise over the mountains they release most of their moisture, so that they are quite dry when the lower again.

We probably have 1 1/2-2 feet of snow. It hits the ground in November or December and just sits there until spring thaw.

The thing is that the snow is very dry. You can often sweep it off the sidewalks with a broom. Your 20 inches of snow probably has 10x the water content of what's on our ground right now.

Even though you get very little snow I'll bet it gets real cold in Alberta.

Heck yeah.

-30C is guaranteed every winter. -40C in the exceptional years.

Today it was a very pleasant and sunny -4C (24F).

Enjoy your warm wet snow.

John

PS the city schools haven't closed for snow or cold in about 60 years.

I just heard that my sister's home in Kennett Square, PA, lost power for several hours today, has received 18" of snow so far, and has had a state of emergency declared in her region.

Which is worse? Extreme snow, or extreme heat? I'd have to go with extreme snow, so long as the temperatures are just a bit below freezing.

I just saw the following news story on Drudge:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20100210/wl_......10212011

"RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) – The worst heatwave to hit Rio de Janeiro in 50 years turned the city into a pre-Carnival furnace Wednesday, and killed 32 elderly people further south, officials said.

According to the Inmet national weather service, recorded temperatures in Rio were well above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees) -- and felt more like above 50 degrees.

"The heatwave in Rio is seen as historic. February right now is the hottest month for the past 50 years," meteorologist Giovanni Dolif told the O Globo daily.

It's actually been a great winter here in Alberta where I live (couple hundred miles south of John). Sunny and mild (-2C) right now, blue skies, fresh air, dry streets, a little bit of snow in the front yard.

When I moved to Alberta nearly 20 years ago, I used to bundle up every winter with a hat and scarf and boots and gloves, and I was still often cold in the winter. Over the years, the first to go was the scarf. A couple of years later, the hat. I pretty much stopped needing winter boots (except for maybe 2 or 3 weeks) for when I am out walking, about 2 or 3 years ago (I foolishly purchased new winter boots a year or two ago, and I've yet to wear them). And I recently realised that I have not needed gloves anytime yet this winter.

We had a couple of weeks of -30C or so temperatures back in December, but that came and went and it has been nice ever since.
