We just get less snow than surrounding areas. Every few years we will get 4" or over, other years ranges from a dusting to 1" - 3" some years don't get 5" if you add all the snow together. Once every 20 years we might get 8" or so.

    No snow in the center of east river South Dakota, all brown and dry , and the dust blows on windy days. I only received 5.5 inches of rain since June 1st, but we still harvested a decent crop of beans and corn, but next year will be bad ,unless we get snow, or spring rain.

    About a foot of snow here in NW Montana. Put the snow plow on the truck a couple of days ago and plowed my driveway (150yds) and the widows next door (200 + yds). Took about 45 minutes. Kind of fun playing in the snow in a heated cab.

    As of yesterday, I have had two feet so far. I should buy stock in U-haul, lots of newbies will be bailing out this winter.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    We got about 3" the weekend after Thanksgiving, then another 3-4" a couple of days ago.

    Temps have been perfect with lows in the teens and highs at just below freezing. I love having a nice layer of snow.

    Driving in it is fine if you have good tires and common sense. On my way home last week...

    We had a couple of very light snows here in SWPA, which immediately reverted back to rain.

    In Oxnard, CA where I grew up, it snowed in 1948 and people still talk about it.

    We had -41C a few days ago, then up to -3C now down at -12C.
    And there is 2" of snow.
    The wildlife and farmers will take a beating if there is not at least 12" of snow soon.

    Warmed up into the low 40's and turned the snow to slush. Still, dad wanted his place plowed, so I obliged. No use arguing with an 82 yr old former Marine.

    We had our first snow last week. About 4 inches it lasted a couple of days. It snowed last night around 2 inches, but wet and slippery. I was glad my wife made it home before the temperature dropped back below freezing. I loved winter in Alaska, but hate it here. Too much hovering above and below freezing.

    Out here in sunny California we got 5 feet in the last storm. Wind gusts on the mountain tops of 165 mph.

    In snow country you wear out snow shovels, in Truckee you wear out snow blowers.

    We have been getting a lot of snow here, started in October, and many are starting to shovel the roofs. It has been above 34F this winter, and it makes river travel not safe. Will get to -15F in a few days. Wife said lets put on snowshoes, and break trail to our wood cutting area. We snowshoe pack, then take snogo into the woods two days later. The deep snow, and heavy machines of today need all the help they can get. The weather is a changing. The Arctic is not liking the new weather.

    Va mnts;

    Was mowing grass a few weeks ago which is perfectly normal. Big honkin finish mower hanging off the back of our hotrod tractor got cleaned and put up. Replaced with a custom built log dragging/grading setup.

    Sayin,we go from shirt sleeve bow hunting weather to freeze your buns off within a months time. Our snowfall is cyclical...last 3 or 4,maybe 6" total. Then we'll swing into a period of ice systems for the same 3 or 4. Then a snowy pattern.

    I do like snow here,makes chasing varmints with cast a funner event.
