We had snow today - yay! Two weeks ago I let Bandit out for the afternoon without his rug on as it was so mild

Alas, the country is in turmoil and drivers have lost all sense of reason - prepare yourselves now for the incredible snowfall we have had, which had brought the country to darn near a standstill:

I don't even have running water cause it's frozen Seriously.. it as like -5 last night, why must the water freeze?

Mom, it's cold out here LET US IN!

OK, seriously, stop with the camera and let us in!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Caught to feed, not a flake to be found. The 12" from last week was gone. Shortly after dishing out feed five mins later. Ended up with darn near an inch in a half hour. Then it just stopped.

I am so very, VERY jealous of all of your beautiful snow photos!!
We don't get any here, minus maybe a couple of sprinkles in the coldest winter mornings in the tops of the hills. Then it's all over the news, literally 4 or 5 flakes ;)
Our winters are yuck, coldest day temp is usually no lower than 11C and that's on the REALLY cold days. Nights will VERY occasionally drop to 0 or -1C, then it's a cause for "Ahhhhh I don't have enough clothes, crank up the heater, electric blanket, hot soup, wood fire and huddle together!!!

I would so kill for -1*C temps and no snow right now! It's not too cold right now, -8*C ( -13* with the bit of wind), but I could be rid of the snow!

I'll trade you a week of your snow for a week of dust bowl!! Hottest and longest summer on record here, very much over the idiots lighting fires everywhere.

Well I actually don't mind the cold, or the snow, it's the icy roads I don't like. I won't trade though, hot weather and I don't get along well.

It is just a sheet of ice everywhere here at the moment, very pretty and shiny but just lethal. Rain and then freezing rain yesterday on top of all the snow, it is just NASTY, and now they are calling for another 6" of snow in the next 24 hours

Us Australians, Kayty :) we didn't even realise our car had a frost warning light installed until a few years ago (car was six years old then) driving at 5:30 am up the Blue Mountains.

Only seen snow once, in Switzerland. It was AWESOME! I'm so jealous :(

And yes, all those fires...and floods in Queensland again...I would trade but nobody deserves to go through that. My cousins got evacuated because of fires :(

Sorry about the fires, I would hate that!
But ya'll wouldn't want the weather we're having right now either. We've had so many deaths this year from driving accidents, it's insane! It's because the roads are so slick. Today I left work at 11:00 am because the roads were bad when we were heading in at 8:45 and they were getting worse. I was sliding around a lot coming home, and I was going slow.

Winter

For those of you that are envious of our snow, you are welcome to come to my place and pick up a few megatons of the rotten stuff. We have been getting hit with a storm for the past week that is scheduled to continue for another 5-8 days or so. In the past 72 hours, over a foot has fallen. It looks like we could see another foot in the next week. Temperatures are also unseasonably cold as it was -17 C when I went out to feed this morning. Today's high and tomorrow and the next day, won't see over -11. Winter snow first fell here in early October and hasn't left since. We are getting pretty sick of it. It's March for crying out loud!

Picture of my back yard where my outdoor firepit and furniture are supposed to be. For reference, the table and chairs are full height and the barbecue is quite large. A week ago, I had the deck, the benches and the barbecue cleaned off completely.
