Personally, i *love* the snow!

I hoping we get a lot more of it, so i can take the kids out sledging again!

At least if you're cold, it's easier to get warm...if you're too hot (I don't like the heat), it's much harder to get cool.



I would have to fully agree with you on that statement. I hate being to hot. The cold i can manage. I prefer it to heat any day.


I would love more snow too, i got my kids a sledge last year and they loved it!

Well, that will certainly make you stop and go "hmmm...." Although where I am it really hasn't been that much colder. We have had a few vicious cold snaps, but overall it has been pretty warm for winter. It was raining in January for goodness sakes... In Montana. Which is weird. It has however, been a very, very wet year. Alot of precipitation. I don't know if this is par for the course for everyone else though. Does anyone have any data analysis on overall temperature and precipitation for this winter?

I remember this phenomenon. It used to occur when I was a kid. The northern hemisphere would be covered in snow for about 2-3 months out of the year.

Back then, we called it "Winter".

Glad it's back.

Well........
I am in the blue strip in the mid Atlantic and can tell you for a fact that the temperatures where I am have been colder for longer this winter, and the rainfall/snowfall from May of last year until now has been very below average. We experienced/are still experiencing drought conditions and below normal temperatures.

Its this thing called winter, happens once a year. If the icesheet would last well into spring, I would be worried. The icesheet reflecting much of the sunlight will make for a long winter.

I'm quite aware that it is winter. I'm not worried about anything.
I just wanted to share this amazing image with the people of ATS. Its not something you see all the time.

I kinda feel left out as my part of the UK has zero snow

It is mighty windy out there tonight, blowing a right gale.

Makes you sympathise with the folks of Queensland more with their 120mph winds, i think the worst we have had here (in my lifetime) was 100mph back in 1987, I remember seeing the caravan that was on the driveway doing somersaults across the lawn, lol.

Dave, I think the point of the story is that most of the Northern Hemisphere is covered, including parts of the UK, if you look at the map on the first page it's quite white, more so than normal from our perspective, maybe normal in the grand scheme of the earths history..........

Yes it dose make you think how lucky we are here.
I remember the 1987 storm very well. Total destruction, i think the southeast was one of the worst hit areas.

That is a response to your OP it just happens to be one you don't like because I don't think it snowing in Alaska is an amazing event

We have a mini Ice Age on the way.

Three winters of snow and ice in the UK and much of Western Europe, after nearly a quarter century of no snow during winter.
