I used my snowblower so little last year that it didn't need a new sparkplug or an oil change this season, and may NOT get much use this season, either.

    I bought a pair of snowshoes on sale late the winter before last, and we haven't had enough to try them since!
    My wife and I got ourselves our first ever pairs of cross country skis this fall. Like you, I wonder if we'll even be able to use them.

    I just approved the first of what I suspect to be several $1500 bills for winter watering. We are starting to see - across the country - the cost of man-made climate change: weird weather.

    Must've scraped a half-inch of ice off my windshield this a.m. Freezing rain is no fun.

    It was in the 50s here yesterday... And they say that we will not get or first real snowfall Thursday late, and it will continue into Sunday.... I leave town on Friday!

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    It's raining here and about 40. Sunday it was close to 50 and yesterday, it actually hit 50 I think. For December in these parts, that's downright "balmy".

    It's hard to believe, but I don't think we've had measurable snow in Jamestown in December, just a dusting. We've had 6 inches or less for the entire 2012-2013 season so far. The ski resorts are hurting. Snowplowers are hurting. Snowmobiling is a big, big deal around here since Chautauqua County has hundreds of miles of marked and groomed snowmobiling trails, and numerous businesses from bars to bed and breakfasts to snowmobile dealers depend on the sport, and this is the second year in a row when there's been NO snow in an area that averages 180-200 inches of snow a year.

    No snow in my neck of the woods. And it doesn't appear to be any in the 7 day forecast.

    I think we are supposed to get 1" - 2" Friday morning.

    I guess it does appear that way. Channel 4's website doesn't really say so, but other places do. I'm not a fan of snow by any means, but a light dusting does help to cover up the dirty, ugly brown.

    25-35 cm (+/- 1 foot) of snow coming between tonight and tomorrow...looks like it may be a white Christmas after all. Not leaving town until Saturday thankfully.

    We're not supposed to get a whole lot of snow here, but I can already feel the wind blowing through the wall of my 52 year old office.

    We have no snow now, and it sounds like it will not start until mid morning tomorrow... I am happy that it is arriving in force today north of here, in hopes that it burns out before we hit the road tomorrow.

    70 d. here today, but expect to go into the low 30's and high 20's over the next few nights. Early for a freeze on the panhandle.

    Well, we got < 4 inches before midnight, and some more since, so we probably have 6-8 inches so far here in Jamestown. However, the winds are really whipping, which means that all that snow got pushed into drifts like the one in front of my garage, and the Jamestown DPW, bless their hearts, snowplowed my street within an inch of its life overnight which means I have about 2 feet of snow across my driveway at the street.

    I gotta have breakfast before I bundle up like the Abominable Snowwoman and fire up the snowblower. No early doggie play date at the park for Tucker this AM. Too cold and windy for his Mom!

    I hear Grand Rapids has no snow, but the UP has a good amout. Roads were ice and snow converted all the way here yesterday.
