"Well, you don't have to shovel it!" In regards to this rain and warm weather, I think I am going to punch them in the face....

Lol

Seriously though, I hope Jan 1 it goes to twenty below and stays there for three months. Seeing all this rain that could be snow breaks my heart!!!

at least you can see the road surface. I had 45 minute drive on unploughed roads this morning trying to guess where the road finished and the ditch started. Hoping our drive has been been cleared by the time I get home. Best thing we ever did was signing up for snow clearing.

Well, at least we don't have to shovel it.

There comes a point where enough snow becomes a bit too much. We're having the wettest December on record here, but it has been all rain.........It's pouring cat's and dog's as I'm writing this. The local rivers are flooding and I've been out canoeing last week.

If this was snow, we would look like parts of Buffalo, NY looked last winter.........that's a bit much.

That looks like what we have road wise ..about 4-6" of snow on the ground and -6c and dropping

We have snow and cold here in the Northwest US, and we are very grateful. It was a hot dry summer and minimal snow last winter.  ;D

Thank you El Nino!

So this is your fault!!!

Send some snow this way then! It's gusting to sixty knots here, and raining like crazy. No snow, no ice, no nothing...

To anyone who implies this warm winter is a good thing I tell them in no uncertain terms to pack their things and move south and let us enjoy a real winter. No mercy for those people.
