We just had another six inches of snow today, on top of a considerable pile of snow already there. The snow off the roof outside my study is reaching up toward the tops of the windows. My snowblower just broke down.
Ouch. I wonder what Punxatauny Phil had to say in 1816?

Man, where are you. I spent the day in shorts and T-shirt...it's cooled off this evening some though.

Yeah, we were supposed to have 4-6" of snow. It started late last night, and by 10am, we had about 2 additional inches over what we'd gotten the previous week. Then it started snowing steadily, and in less than 2 hours we had an additional 4"! Our son plowed the driveway and I took him out to a LAN party. When Sir SuziQ went out to get him at 8pm, it was STILL snowing, and there was an additional 8"!! That makes over a foot in total for this storm!! Our son will have to plow again tomorrow!
I'm so sick of this white crap!

We live on upper yukon, it was 48 above today; but will probably be zero nx week. Had about a month and a half of minus 50-60 this winter.
Know some people that live downriver and live about exclusively on what they grow & catch. That means they eat beets, carotts, and lettuce in about everything along with moose and salmon. Maybe every other year their spuds make it. No complaining from them though. Summer snowfall common here and you plan for it. We always get 1000 lb potatoes, and use plastic for frost.
Cold summers are like Y2K fears.
