I think there are going to be a lot of happy campers when this winter comes to an end!

Snow, the Pacific NorthWET needs snow (on our mountains, not in the city). We're running a good 20-30 degrees BELOW normal... but, no moisture... dang.

The news reported that this was the sixth coldest January on record for the area, we had 19 days with temps below freezing - some years we don't have any.

Well fine. I asked for it, looks like we're going to get it ALL AT ONCE!

Record cold could lead to 6 inches of snow Saturday - Local News - Portland, OR | NBC News

You have to remember, we don't have snow plows. Two inches of snow shuts our city down. We have hills everywhere too! I live where they're talking about the wind... brrrrr.

We are in a deep freeze here again. It was -28°C (-18°F) when I headed to yoga at 6AM. I have a few guys framing a house today, methinks they will take the day off.

A question posed on the radio here yesterday, would you prefer cold with lots of snow, or real cold with no snow. I prefer the snow option.

I will go with the snow option for sure. At least then I can get out snowshoeing or CC skiing and enjoy the winter. And I get all that exercise snowblowing our 1/4 mile driveway!

I am with you, Eric. Give me snow any time so that I can do winter sports. If I can get out, I can enjoy the winter with little regard for the temperature. All that said, I seem to have pulled a tendon or two while skiing a couple of weeks ago in the -10 f temperature range, so have taking the prescribed rest. But there is only so much rest a man can endure.... :-)

Leon, I did nearly the same thing - strained something in my leg trying to break trail with my snowshoes in the deep snow. This aging body sure protests work more than it used too...

Are there any warm winter in Winterpeg?

And that calendar came claim any day it wants as the first of spring. That does not make the snow stop falling, let alone get it all to melt.
