How's this winter been where you are, so far?

I've been hearing there's been much less snow in the usual wintry American snow zones this year. Gays don't seem to like snow so I guess many of you are happy about it.

Oh, nothing worth mentioning.

by Anonymousreply 1January 22, 2023 7:41 PM

Very quiet where I am, OP.

No measurable snowfall at all, which is exceptionally rare.

by Anonymousreply 2January 22, 2023 7:43 PM

Too long already. Too many huge snow dumps too early. Two months of several feet of snow is already old. I'm not even kidding when I say we haven't had more than 5 or 6 days of partial sunshine in the last two months.

Could you say where you are, R3 - roughly?

There has been no shortage of snow in Minnesota.

So far, no major cold snaps. It’s gotten a few degrees below zero but not much colder.

I have the worst ice dams I’ve ever had on the roof, though.

What gets me through at this point are the slowly lengthening days. That and a good stout beer after sunset.

80s, a bit cloudy, lots of crazy people on meth.

It's been mild here in Chicago. Temps haven't been bad on many days. We've had some snow but it hasn't been much and has melted fairly quickly. And it's almost February, so the end of winter is in sight.

I'm in northern Wisconsin very close to western border of the U.P.

It has been nice and cold , for us, here in the fetid hell of the south. I am loving it.

January might as well have been November, so far.

Sorry, hit return too soon. I am in Toronto. It's been very mild. Christmas was white and fairly cold. ( A wokester child told me from now on I should say Christmas was snowy.) We are expecting a good snow storm Weds and Thurs, apparently... 20 cm (almost 8") but forecast snowfalls are alot like internet dick inches, you never know how it will measure up until it's out in front of ya.

While I am enjoying the rare cold spell here, the tornado that touched down in my county nearly frightened me to death. It was a very close call.

Glad you’re ok, r12.

R13- Thank you. Tornado's are simply terrifying and we have a lot of them, unfortunately. We have been extremely lucky so far. This was he closest call we have ever had. I was shaking, the sky turned an ominous color of green. But the sound of a tornado is the most terrifying sound there is, imo.

Tornado’s what though?

Holy shit, you were close enough to HEAR it?

Awww, HELL no. Pack our shit, we moving.

Lots of beautiful snow the past few days here in southern Germany, with more on the way. I absolutely love it.

Idk why everything is double posting today.

NYC here and I can't say I've seen a single flake of snow yet.

Just a few years back we had our biggest snow storm of the season on the day before Halloween, remember?

R22 Beautiful photo. How I wish I could be there. I love snow. It is comforting to me. Idk why but it probably because I love it but live in the south.

by Anonymousreply 24January 22, 2023 8:21 PM

R23 Thank you. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Well, trump. McConnell... Let's just say every right wing republican, lol. This stuff makes you feel absolutely evil.

I’m in Southeastern Wisconsin, OP.

You’d hardly know it is winter here.

A brief cold snap and windstorm in late December and since then dried-up brown grass as far as the eye can see.

A few dustings of snow or an inch here and there, but it has melted soon thereafter.

How anyone can deny climate change has me stumped.

by Anonymousreply 26January 22, 2023 8:31 PM

R26- I have no idea. All they have to do is look outside their window to see the obvious. It must be nice to be mentally capable of denying reality when it is frightening. I wish I could do that.

Cape Cod. Mild. Pleasant. Not at all winter-like, besides a few episodes of snowflakes. A few very windy days.

by Anonymousreply 28January 22, 2023 8:39 PM

Southeastern VA, and the winter has been typically mild. The people, however, have gotten meaner and fatter.

New York City here. Unseasonably warm. No snow so far and none predicted through the end of January. Ridiculous! Where’s my snow???

Thank you, R24 — I like snow, too. It makes everything so quiet and peaceful.

where is you, Dutchie - you don't say.

[R21] I remember that! That was my idea of perfect snow. It came down in buckets, was pretty for a day, and then melted away. I lived across from CP, and the cops were chasing people out. The trees still had leaves, and with the added weight of the snow, they were afraid branches would snap and hurt people. I'm in New Orleans now. We had the same really cold snap most of the country had over Christmas, but it's been pretty warm since. In the 50s today but has been in the high 70s too. I love it! I moved from NYC partly to get away from the cold.

I did mention it in my R17 post, R32: Southern Germany
