Right now, in Cincinnati, the weather offically sucks. There's maybe, I don't know, a foot or so of snow and 6 to 9 more currently falling. I mean, it's not like places where they expect this kind of stuff, so I know some people will scoff and such, but it stills kinda bites.

Luckily ( ) I live close enough to work to walk (and in weather like this am the only one who makes it in). But anyway, enough about me, how's the weather where you are?

(And feel free to gloat if you are in one of those wonderfully weathered places around our much damaged planet or on vacation or something)

The weather here is warm enough I did not even need a jacket full stop when I went outside. The sky is slightly cloudy but not at all overcast, and the only thing my wife and I have used the radiator for all winter so far is to dry clothes.

Well Florida has had a strong winter this year. We had almost a week of low temperatures in the 20's F at the beginning of the year. And this is the second week where we have lows in the 30's for more than 1 day at a time.

It rained all day Friday, but has been sunny most other days. Not bad, but definitely not typical!!!

Wow, 6 to 9 more feed of snow??? Oh... nevermind.

We had a rough Christmas through New Years around here, with ~3 ft in about a week. Its been mild since then, with only 6-8 inches one time and a few other incidents of 2-3 inches. Its snowing now, but doesn't look like we'll get much accumulation.

This season did spur me to purchase this microbadge: mb

The sky was clear and it was about -5 degrees celcius earlier(now it's -8 degrees) with very little wind. We have about 50-60cm of snow and I think we're supposed to get some more on Wednesday.

And I'm loving it! Snow and sunshine!


Well, it depends when you read this thread as to how bad it actually is...

Okey dokey, a picture of Lagos, where I live:




To be fair, it's very cold (by Portuguese standards) here atm. Really cold (minimum < 10C).
Although obviously not as cold as other places, and due to our usually good weather, most houses/people here have very poor heating (I lived in Pittsburgh for 5 months last year, and got -25C; although it was freezing out, I never felt even remotely as cold indoors as I do over here).

As I look out on the vista of dirty 3-foot piles of snow in my neighborhood, I hate you with every fiber of my being.

Actually, here in Toronto, we're having a fairly mild winter. Certainly a lot less snow than the last 2 years.

Ok, I was very wrong. We got 4-5 inches, which I snowblowed out this morning before taking a shower and heading to work.

We're having a lot of snow. We usually don't get so many snow storms in such short order. The porch has about 2 feet of accumulation on it and it is still snowing. Lots of blowing and drifting too (worse since we're on the top of a hill). Overall accumulation in the last week is probably about 3+ feet.

This is the 3rd snow storm we've had in about a week's time. We usually have no more than 2 in a week. It's certainly not as bad as when I was a kid, but it's bad enough - especially since we live in a very rural area with lots of hilly terrain. When this all melts, we're going to have lots of flooding with the runoff and the typical spring rains.
