That is exactly why I moved from NY and PA! I hate snow. We've been down south for just 9 years now and, except for the freak snow "storm" last winter that gave us 4", we had a total accumulation of 2" total for the 8 years prior. The 4" we got crippled the town for days. We don't have plows or any way to dispose of snow.

In fact, they close schools if there is even a prediction of snow. Oh, and your attendance is required at the Bi-Lo grocery store to stock up on toilet paper, milk, and beer - next stop is the video store for games and movies (hopefully you have a generator in case the power goes out. The generator is for the TV set, not the refrigerator). It's like they expect to be snowed in for weeks.

Snow ???? What snow.

My neighbour has told us that 30 years ago we would have had snow from December until March - would have had at least 2' by now.

My horses are out in their paddock with no rugs on - my grass is growing ( actually better than it was in June ) and the snapdragons are still in flower. Yesterday I was outside in a T shirt cutting up wood for the fire ( getting a bit cold at night ) .

Bizzaro weather to say the least ( but I'm not complaining ) .

You guys are always welcome at me place between mid November to the end of April JDI, Fehr and I will always have lots of snow to pass around. I may even let you shovel my sidewalk

You could shovel it, load it and then ship it here. I love snow but like I said earlier, we haven't had our yet.

Two years ago we got a little snowstorm and got around 40-60cm during one night. Normally it's few ten centimeters during winters.

I had a freak snow storm last year where we got 10 inches!!!other than that we normally only get about an inch or two in a sitting, and that is enough to cancel school. It only snowed about an inch and our school buses got stuck trying to go down the bluffs to get people to their houses down by the river.

Yeah no kidding. I haven't been outside since yesterday afternoon, and I'm NOT looking forward to the not-so-pleasant surprise of very cold!!! It's been this way for about a week now off and on...
Oh, and here's a pic of what it's like out by my house, although I'm currently on the other side of town.
