Yea, shoveling sucks, especially when you have a long driveway. Thankfully we have a snowblower on our lawn tractor and unless it is really icey or slippery, it does a good quick job of removing snow.

Our place out here has that. Its just heated coils in the concrete. Just turn it on and wait a while...bam....no more snow. We also have heated coils in the patio around our hot tub and pool area, so you can still use it in the winter. :D

The thing about Seattle, and the entire Puget Sound Area is that for it to be cold enough to snow, usually it has to be a clear day/night. Very rarely do the winds come from the north or east, bringing the cold air, and keeping the cloud cover required for snow.

However, according to stories by some of the older residents of Whidbey Island, the area used to get dusted often, with usually 6" twice a year. However, that was only for a period of about 10 years, in the 30's and again in the 70's, during the earth's cooling periods over the last century.

It is a good thing too, because the Californians in their big SUVs always have problems in rain, snow, wind, sunshine, overcast, etc. And the Hills in Seattle would be hell in a lot of snow. Heck, Jan 2004, 6 inches of snow shut down Washington and Oregon. In fact Portland had so many problems, that they required chains to drive in the city, and I know Seattle is not Portland, but they do have similar population makeup, and ability to drive in the weather.

----
Here in the Ugly Ass city of Flint, the snow has fallen, and most of the ugliness has been covered with snow. I wish is was more than a dusting, but at least at this level, I can clear paths with salt, instead of shoveling my way around my apartment complex.

Fun Isn't it! At least MNDOT is getting better at NOT plowing in peoples driveway approaches , (well at-least in Carver county).

To Add to this,

We finally got some snow that justifies me having Snow tires, and de-icer juice to add to my washer fluid (from Audi :) ).

It is strange living in a state that has snow EVERY winter, how many local people seem less and less prepared for it every first snowfall. Here I am driving (quite cautiously) with my properly equipped VW, watching SUV's and AWD Subaru and Audi products slide around on their "summer only" tires.

The nice thing is, most of these drivers can still somewhat handle their cars, and get around, but it is odd being able to out accelerate (without trying) a new S4 or WRX on the wrong tires. Lets not get into stopping or turning, needless to say I didn't want either of them behind me!

Many people don't even know that there are summer and winter/snow tires. allwheel drive or not summer tires in the winter is a big no no.

Sadly my Quattro is down, It will be on the mend before January, but I don't have the time or money to get my 4000 back on the road. I bought it as a winter beater, but fell in love with the car, and started to take really good care of it, and go to local Quattro Club events with it. It has had snow tires every year since I bought it in 99. Great fun!

I hope to buy an A3 next summer to enjoy as a daily driver (provided I don't have to sell my Passat :) . Hope to see you on the roads! I rarely worry about Audi pilots running into me, though I wish more of them had snows installed!

I have ended up falling into snow on one occasion. At a chalet in France where we were skiing with the school. The girls snuck out, climbed down the balcony on the bunk bed ladders to the boys on the ground floor before an alert the teachers were coming came up. Two of us who couldn't get back up to our beds again ended up (supposedly in the bathroom with the shower going) but actually behind a snow-drift in the snow-filled swimming pool ;)

Oh I wish they would teach winter driving here, we have enough trouble driving in the rain.

The areas where our ski resorts are (mostly National Parks) require us to carry tyre chains in the vehicle when passing the entry gates to the parks and it's illegal not to fit them when asked.

I didn't see a single set of chains in Canada and everyone drove so well on the snow - just goes to show what local conditions will do for your abilities. We get so many europeans and north americans complaining about having to rent chains but all we can do is tell them that it's the law and must be obeyed.

It's snowing again in Bellingham. Started 9p.m. last night and just started up again. It was not cold enough for freezing to happen so most people were alright in the roads.

This is why I love living in the PNW. Occasionally snows and only a few times a year, nice sunny weather in the summer and how can I forget the rain. If I have to move to some dry, sunny-all-year-around place I would miss the rain/cold weather.

Coming from Vermont, i always laugh when people are amazed at snow! Here if you don't have studded snow tires, it can get ugly, quickly. I like snow, but shoveling sucks! Pict of me sliding/sledding (another pronunciation thing) The walk back sucks:

Our place out here has that. Its just heated coils in the concrete. Just turn it on and wait a while...bam....no more snow. We also have heated coils in the patio around our hot tub and pool area, so you can still use it in the winter. :D

You dont want to know the amount of jeliousy going through my veins right now.

For the record, it's even colder than it looks:

Blimey!
Some of the pictures are unbelievable. We can only dream of snow like that here in the UK.
We're luck if we get an inch or two settle :(

Are all you Brits serious when you says you dont get any snow?!? Why arnt you guys closer to the artic circle??? wow im confused.

In michigan we got ~2-3 inchs tonight it was pretty bad driving home. (incase you were wondering)

Edit: dornoforpyros that is fricken rediculous! I get grumpy when its colder than 15degrees out. I think I would go crazy if it was like that for 1/3 of the year.
Oh is that celcius or farenthhight?

Right now we've got the gulf stream which draws warm water across the Atlantic from the south. This water is warm enough to keep the air temperature here nice and mild in the winter.

But it looks like this might be changing. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=164628&highlight=stream)

OK, those snow photos just make me hate you now. After last season's debacle I'm so jealous of you right now.

Ah well... Here's the view from my favourite pub about 20 mins away...

And just for good measure - although it doesn't really measure up - a bit of home cooking...

I got up to college the other day and was hugely excited to see this. It hadn't snowed in town, so maybe it was the altitude.....:D

That kid has a T-shirt on... is he mad?
Yeah, thats a tee shirt! But, here in New England, most of us wear Ts in the winter.

We're use to it. :cool:
