    Here it's -8 F without counting the 50mph winds, with the wind it feels like -24 F. Haven't felt this cold since '98.

    Yay! It's finally snowing here!

    On the other hand, they forecasted that it can be around -15*C in the next week.

    I don't mind the snow, but the cold, biting wind gets me. You can't do anything productive in it. Plow the driveway? Pfft. Why? It'll just drift in again before you're finished the road to the barn. But, if you don't, it'll crust and you'll never get through it.

    Once the snow is all parked in it's place, it's so clean and bright. Winter without snow would be truly dismal. And COLD! I remember a few years ago we had hardly any snow and the house was so much colder without drifts and banks up against it. Even two feet against the walls makes a huge difference.

    Edited to add current temp: -10C / 13F. Same all day, but feels like it'll drop to at least -15C tonight.

    Thankfully it all went north of us. (this time) We just had the 50mph bitter cold wind gusts. With hyperthermia warnings. The sad part is, it's only just beginning!! UGH!!

    The snow trapped my car on the street =[ a snow plow came a dumped more on it, you can't really see the car at all, just looks like a pile of snow !

    Snow Scrooges! Lol, just kidding. I wish we could get snow here. Those first pic are soooooooooooo snowy! Wow! Do you mind me asking how tall your corral fence is? So far its been freezing here( 14 degrees F), with frost everywhere, but this is only in where my dad lives. Its been a balmy 28 everywhere else! I bet I could go out and get a tan! Ah........tan.......summer.......warmth.......... but I love the cold, too! It just started raining here, so it's not as cold. We are supposed to get a bit of snow soon,though just on out mountains.

    I think the gate is around 5 feet or just under. That isn't the deepest drift we got, they were much deeper in the driveway. One of the drifts there was well over 6 feet.

    As for current temp it's -36C here, yesterday it was -44C (-47F)

    I almost cried because of sympathy when I read that. It's something around -17 *C (a bit over 1*F) here and I already feel I'll freeze.
