The coastal northeast, especially Long Island is expecting 2-5 inches of snow tomorrow. Here we go :(

Here in good 'ole Northern Idaho we call that "snow flurries".  :wicked:

Last year we had continuous snow on the ground from about a week before Christmas until about the last week of March. I got a LITTLE worried when it reached about 18 inches on the garage roof. Never heard of a roof rake until we moved here... :frantic:

You talkin' to me? Well I'm the only one here.

Just because we can't obtain perfection doesn't mean that we shouldn't strive for improvement.

Yikes - now that's a heap of snow. Most we had here on the island the past few years was a bit over 36 inches in 24 hours!

Everybody says “Oh, it’s so hot in Arizona!”

Yes, it’s hot. But I never (ever) have to shovel hot out of my driveway, or scrape sunshine off my windscreen. :)

Matt

It's either white fluffy stuff or as heavy as cement. Add some nasty winds and the fun is just starting.

Some how Matt, after following the horrendous forest fires in your neck of the woods, snow doesn't seem that bad. 

Just be safe and how are you making out.

Jennings ... good point but don't the snakes offer a bit of a challenge? When I was in Arizona a few years ago, I saw a few signs that said: stay on the pay - snakes. I never stopped looking down!

At least Canada and USA do snow properly without all the moaning and head in hands drama which happens over here in the UK.  On average we need a slight flurry which settles and all our major transport systems stop, schools close and the politicians all try and blame one another.  It's wonderful to see - like a bizarre British ritual.

Here the temps are pushing into the high 80's.  People go to the beach for Christmas.  I lived in Michigan for 30 years.  I don't miss my snow shovel at all.

Depends where you are in Canada. My daughter lives in Victoria, British Columbia now, after growing up in Ontario. She laughs when they get snow out there. The city panics with a couple inches of snow that she says wouldn't even stop school buses back here. Even at that, it's amazing how with the first snowfall everyone forgets how to drive. Part of being Canadian I guess.

Aw, this happens every year. 

The people who love snow sports revel in it and the rest of us shrug and ask what can we do?

I grew up in Chicago. When I moved to SW Connecticut I thought we had hit the tropics. I'll stay right here.

 

Macho story time. The IT guy and the boss/owner of the company and I were sitting around in his office one day chewing the fat and the boss remarked that when it snows he gets up at 4 AM and starts up the truck with the big plow and plows out his home and his neighbors and then the entire factory area. 

The IT guy said he has a walk behind snowblower and he gets up at 5 AM and plows his house and driveway and the 1/8 mile of unpaved road leading to his house.

They looked at me and I said I pick the phone and call my plow guy and then I roll over in bed and go back to sleep. They just looked at me.  :whistle:

You might try the St John's, AZ area-by the end of snow season (which begins in October and does not end 'till March), all the snowplow trucks are broke-down.

Driven through many blizzards between Flagstaff and Holbrook as well.

Been here for close to a year (!?!?), and I've seen exactly one snake (non-venomous) in my neighborhood, and none anywhere near my house.  No scorpions either.  Coyotes, bobcats, and javelinas, but no creepy-crawlies!
