Wondering if rhubarb actually grows in Osoyoos......we've had a "blanket of snow " since a little before Christmas ( nothing like the photo above ) along with some colder than usual weather and not too many chinooks ( just short little ones - not enough to melt the snow away ). But now we are nearing the end of Jan. we really should be getting more chinooks - enough to get rid of the snow .

You wanna talk snow, go chat with the Yoopers.

Take a look at this scale from Keweenaw County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. All time low was 161.1" in the winter of 1999-2000, high was 390.4" or 32.5 ft in the winter of 1978-79.

Jim, there's still hope. We went from a predicted 14" 2 days ago to 5-8 yesterday and less then 1" this afternoon.

Shortly after New Years we were visiting one of our daughters in the Matsu valley when the diesel overheated. Darn it, time for a new thermostat. We cut our visit short so we could limp home before it got dark. Halfway home I realized I had the winter radiator cover on, pulled over opened it up, problem solved. 50 degrees early January in Alaska, gotta love it. Scott

No rhubarb though.[/QUOTE]

Just checked mine, just the barest hint of a shoot starting. The race is on with Baglo to see who can make a rhubarb pie first.

Six feet here, six feet there, and before you know it you're talking some pretty serious shoveling.

Time to gas up snow blower and tighten down BlackJack's hatches.
My local news said that the storm passing through here now is the storm that will dump all that snow on the mid-Atlantic region over the weekend. Sorry!

I remember being on the receiving end of these when I lived in Maryland. The storms would come up the coast and hit cold air from the north, turning all that rain to snow. For that reason sometimes D.C.'s Virginia suburbs got more snow than the Baltimore area, which is farther north.
