This is a normal winter for us, and we're so grateful for every precious flake, inch, and foot that will nourish the land in the spring after last summer's heat :)
Haha I wish I had pictures. I am 5'2 and most of the snow banks earlier this winter were over my head. I was waist deep taking the horses out a couple months ago.

I'm in Canada though and am beyond used to this weather. I love that we have this snow which means no droughts. But the opposite is looking to happen, to much water. Which means for yet another wet sloppy hay season. Hay has been bad enough the last few years. I really don't want it any worse *sigh*

where I am, we get on average 27 feet of snow. We haven't had our cold snap yet here this season. Last year we got 90cm in 48 hours over night of -39c windchill -47c

When we get a snowfall warning, we wax the fat skis. There is a reason why the hwy through town is known as the powder hwy.

Right on, BCtazzie! Nice. That's the kind of skiing/snowboarding our boys do - that video reminded me of Mount Bohemia in MI's Keweenaw... :)

Yes all of Canada is on the metric system, I was trying to say it means you ain't got much snow if you are getting inches of it, when you got several feet of it, then it's a problem! More of an inconvenience really, but nothing we can do about the weather, except complain.
