Holy Cow! More Snow on its way!
« on: January 05, 2017, 01:30:02 PM »
In one month we have already had 79% of what we would normally expect for the TOTAL winter here in Manitoba. The snow piles in my yard are over 2m tall. Now they are talking about a "Pineapple Express" weather system heading for the Northern Great Plains Region somewhere between the 10th and 15th January.

Help, I'm gonna need bigger snowshoes!

I have had reports of major slush on the lakes and swamps still running.  Ice was min 12" on the lakes.

We all need to be out in the Sierras as they are expected to get 20 FEET of snow.
