It seems that most of the country got snow this week with more on the way so its a good time to ask how much snow is on the ground near you. We are expecting another storm in the northeast tomorrow.

We have about 1.5" of icy snow. We didn't get hit that hard from the storm a couple days ago. And next week its supposed to get in the 50s again.

I'm hoping we get a big freeze after that so the lake behind my house freezes over again and we can get some more skating in this winter...

I live in Alabama. Could someone please explain what this "snow" thing is I keep hearing about in faraway foreign places like New England?

I thought about the other night as I snow-blowed (blew?) the driveway. I'll try and get some tonight.

And I had to shovel :mad:

The CFO doesn't see why we need a snowblower yet. Shes not the one having a coronary while shoveling. Although to her credit, she did help me yesterday. :)

I live in Kentucky, haven't seen snow in almost 3 weeks. With temps in the 50s and 60s I'm about to go crazy! !:mad: :mad: :mad: I like cold weather and snow. Today temps were in the 30s so I was a little happy, but the temperature is going back up. Hopefully the meteorologists are right when they say the temp is supposed to drop back to normal next week :) :) :)

Snow in Los Angeles City? Never. Well, rarely. I think I read that it snowed in the middle of L.A. once in the 1930s.

But it did hail in some parts of the county this week. We've had rain almost every day for a week, pausing just long enough for the Rose Parade to show the world how nice Southern California is, and then it went back to rain, and we have another week of it ahead of us.

It's only an hour's drive to mountain ski resorts, and I'm going skiing at the end of the month! :)

Issued at: 6:03 PM EST 1/7/05, expires at: 12:10 AM EST 1/8/05

Winter storm warning in effect from 6 am Saturday to 6 pm est saturday,
The winter storm watch has been converted to a winter storm warning for much of interior southern new england including the immediate boston metropolitan area.
A fast developing but rapidly moving low pressure system will bring a period of heavy snow to a large portion of southern new england saturday.
Widespread 4 to 8 inch amounts are forecast.
Temperatures will be at or below freezing during the snow and an hour or two of visibilities near one quarter mile will accompany nearly one inch per hour snowfall.
The most likely target for heavy snow appears to lie along and about 30 miles north of interstate 84 from hartford to sturbridge then eastward to along the mass turnpike to boston and northward to the merrimack valley. High terrain will probably have widespread 6 to 8 inch amounts and 6 to 8 inch snowfall is even highly probable for the city of worcester and near boston.
Springfield, fitchburg, leominster, and beverly in massachusetts as well as hartford and putnam in northern connecticut, and woonsocket in northern rhode island are also within the target zone for 4 to 8 inch amounts. A little sleet and freezing rain may occur for a short time in northern connecticut and northern rhode island.
Those traveling into southern new hampshire can expect several inches of snow there and an advisory has been posted.
Heavy snow will accumulate on roadways and significantly hamper travel. Those that have to be out on the roads will need to use extreme caution and allow plenty of extra time.

No snow in here in Northern California, except for the highest peaks at times. But there was/is snow near L.A. in the Grapevine with was closed earlier this week by the CHP. I actually just got back from Anaheim and saw plenty of snow on the moutain peaks in Southern California and in the Grapevine - a welcomed site :)

with the temps being 40 degrees or better in the DC area, I am wondering if we see any snow this season. :(
DC is weird with snow...some years nothing, then *WHAM*, two feet in a day and the whole city shuts down.

Then it rains two days later and its all gone.....

Here's a pic of the lake in the back yard after the snow a while back....its not frozen right now after 40s and 50s and rain....

Amen! That is why I am thinking that we might just see 3 to 4 feet of snow when the "big one" hits.

We've got 13 inches of snow here in Iowa. We got hit hard by a storm on Wednesday and Thursday... I'll take some pictures and post them tomorrow... Pretty cool. I've got some pretty high drifts in my backyard against a retaining wall.
