I've never seen snow fall by the sea before.
That's gorgeous.

Guys...I hate to sound all frostier than thou...but that kind of snowfall wouldn't even get the kids a day off school!

It must come as a hell of a shock when you come visit us in the Colonies, and see what we call winter.

The following pic was Dec 11...about an hour north of me. Shows a cop trying to clear off their truck.



Now that's SNOW!!

Self edit to send along this bit of doggerel I found in my email this morning...

WINTER POEM

It's winter in Canada!
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.

Oh, how I love Canada
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave my Canada
I'm frozen to the friggin' ground!

How can you possibly function in that?
That's insane.

Well...then that accounts for much, doesn't it!


It is not typical...but not that unusual. That was 66 cm in a day...and I'm guessing there was some drifting in the photo. Here's a link:

Oh my god, that's what you Brits are complaining about? By what you hear coming out of the UK it sounds like you're up to your roofs in snow.

Here in Canada, we call that a light powdering


When it snows so much that you can't open you're front door and neighbour's roof caves in, then it's snowed.

Come on now, that's like some sahara desert people telling canadians "oh my god, you suprised about how hot it is, look how hot it is over here man!!"

The point is the UK is not prepared for such weather, and is not used to it, so ofcourse we are gonna talk about it etc.

I've seen comments like yours too many times lol, we get the point! haha I just had to say something.

Peace.

That's very real, where I live in the Rockies it's not uncommon to get 2-5 ft in one night.

I've stood up to my waist in snow many times.

The thing is, even that kind of snow won't get me off work....

Damn snow plows....

---------------------------------------

Why do we do it you ask?

Well that is an easy one. The snow is worth waking up for this..



And after the snow goes away and all is good we get this,

You've barely got enough there to make a snowman! What could even go wrong with that much snow? An epidemic of broken hipped old ladies?

Jeez, put on a jacket, it'll be ok


My regards to the Queen.

Ok, like we've said before we are not used to it or prepared. Canada like many landlocked countries in Europe have to be prepared for this kind of weather as it's part of living there. So, just because this is a light scattering for you there are far more remote areas in this world which would make Canada look like britain. However, I'd love to visit Canada one day as it's one of the most beautiful places on earth and it would be great no matter what time of the year. In return I offer you big ben.

My only issue regards "land locked"...we say "from sea to sea to sea".

And wait until the Newfies check in...20 feet in a season!

You'll be delighted to know that an inch of snow will shut down New Jersey...it's all what you're geared for. Picture, though...all those immigrants coming here with a driver's licence and facing their first real snowfall.

It's like ballet...at 100km/hr!


Edit to say, please visit. We have summer too, though I had a snowball fight in Labrador on July 1st this year!

This is quite a shocking image, to see the whole of the UK covered in snow, you could mistake it for somewhere like Alaska or Greenland!


For those that think a change might be happening in 2012, do you think this could possibly be the start of a pole shift?
