    I was wondering how much snow tempers get where they live. I'm in Woodbridge, Ontario and this is what I woke up to.

    We had a few inches a little over week ago but the rain got rid of it a couple of days ago.

    We don't operate too well here with snow.

    Well, it has been melting twice now, and I have around 80 cm snow on my lawn

    There was sorta some snow about a week after Hurricane Sandy I think. There was a nor'easter (not usually news-worthy but considering half the east coast was still living in the post-apocalypse, it made things worse). There was supposed to be 6-8 inches of snow a couple days ago but that got downgraded and it snowed maybe an inch or two. I was at a friend's house when it started and I left his house when it ended, so it wasn't that long or that much.

    Really no big snow storms here. It has been brutal cold though. Below 20*F for days, with wind chill it's in single digits.

    And there's snow fucking everywhere.

    Britain: Get some snow and the country stands to standstill.

    Build an igloo.

    Closest is a barrage of hail which demolished the windscreen and made the other parts look like the surface of a golfball.

    Just got a bunch of snow and rain last night, creating a nice amount of ice.

    It's quite surprising this year, we haven't got as much snow as previous years where I live and Michigan is generally known for it's somewhat erratic shitty weather. Ah well, I'm not complaining. I hate snow >.>

    Was pretty snowy past 3 week, but since yesterday night (Saturday on Sunday) it really melted.
    It was 15 cm at some point, and often there was new snow or quite cold temperatures (-5 degrees Celsius) so it really stayed a while. But it's all over now, beautiful day today and everything is just melting away.

    There was some snow to about ankle deep around here but a bit of rain and some sun got rid of most of it as of yesterday. I had a great time digging/shovelling/sweeping in it even if my lack of doing much groundwork lately means I worked up a bit of a sweat, though it seems many of my neighbours were less inclined to do so and after it all partially melt and refroze as snow covering ice it was fun getting down the hill on the pavements.

    What was less amusing was seeing people a) either pointedly avoid or otherwise ignore the nicely shovelled tyre tracks and wonder why they were not in control of their vehicle or b) drive around in a Chelsea tractor without flicking the switch/moving the tiny little level to engage four wheel drive mode and also wondering why they were not in control.

    My brother was at the supermarket though and he remarked on the amount of people effectively panic buying for said dusting of snow.

    Seems to be fairly snowy here, I took this picture last time I was on campus. I'd say ankle deep once it stopped, though there was more snow this morning.

    Snow in Texas means absolute hell. Nobody knows how to drive on it. When it sits long enough it coats the roads in ice. I absolutely abhor snow now that I'm out of school. >.>

    It's like 46 outside and raining here.
    I honestly wouldn't mind some snow, freezing rain just sucks.

    We've gotten a fair bit of snow this year, though as of a day or two ago, it's actually sticking around -1 to 2 C

    Not really sure how much in actual numbers, but we do have some pretty massive piles all over the place. When it snows, it snows a ton. Usually huge snowflakes for hours. I know a few times i've gone to work at 10-11am during heavy snowfall, and will go home at 6-7pm, and it'll still be snowing a lot.

    It's snowing a bit now, but it's just a bit powdery, so it's nothing serious. The ground looks like the set of Scarface, though.

    15 ish cm layer of snow covered the hood.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
