Looks like we got even more snow than you did Dale.  Somewhere between 5-10 cm overnight.  Roads were crappy, normal 55 minute commute took an hour 45.  Blech.

It looks nice though, actually kind of surreal.  Thick layer of snow everywhere, roads are all wet now as that snow has melted and we have steam rising from everything that is not still covered in snow.  They expect it to all be gone by tomorrow.  Your rain also appears to be headed our way.  Since I work in agriculture though, this is all good in a sense.  Precipitation definitely needed.

BDW, just wait until you live in it.  Oh sure, it's fun for a while, but six straight months of this junk?  Blech.  I keep looking for a job in Australia.  I've had my fill of snow, whether it's the -50 wind chills or sliding sideways down a highway at 60 mph.  Give me sun and heat any day.  Grass is always greener, doncha know? ;)

Wow. You got way more than us. Lucky you.  ;D
We had a rain shower last night. More like a 5 minute downpour. The wind picked up & look out. Some ugly clouds too. We need the rain though. I did notice that the grass is starting to turn green & the Gulls are back.  >:(

Bleh, I hate heat...

I could stand 70 degrees all year round, that would suffice for me.  Lows in the high 50's/low 60's would be great then for the evenings.

I'll miss winter in a way, but Spring/Summer does spark you to get things accomplished, so I'm enjoying Sunny Pittsburgh. :)

It's dipped into the 50's now here though as of 3:12 I believe.  That's how it feels anyway...  So much for those 80+ days we had to start the week.  And now my knees hurt!

Yuck. What a miserable Day. It's cold, raining & to top it off, its mixed with snow. Look out Brent, this maybe heading your way.  ;D

They say its going to get to 11°C today, I don't think so.  
Currently 1°C.  >:(

Will it never end?  I was going to switch back to summer tires tomorrow, but maybe not now.  Sheesh.

Heavey wet snow. 2 to 3 inches so far. Yuck!

Same crap we got a couple of weeks ago (slushy wet stuff).  Rained, hailed and snowed today, fortunately none of it stayed.  Enough! :o

Well, no snow here in L.A. (of course), but we are getting quite a surprising rainstorm this evening.  Glad I didn't go by the car wash earlier today as I had planned.  At least the rain will rinse off the couple large bird craps on my hood!   :P

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg!

There is almost a foot of snow & more to come. It is wet & heavy. The drive home today was a nightmare. If you hit a rut, you get sucked into the next lane.

Great weather forecast we are having.  >:(

Today .. Snow. Amounts 5 to 10 cm. High plus 1.  
Tonight .. Snow. Amounts 5 to 10 cm. Wind north 20 km/h. Low minus 1.
Wednesday .. Snow. Storm total 20 to 30 cm. Wind north 30. High 2.
Thursday .. Cloudy. 60 percent chance of flurries or showers. Low minus 1. High plus 3.
Friday .. Cloudy periods. Low minus 3. High 7.
Saturday .. Sunny. Low minus 1. High 11.
Normals for the period .. Low 2. High 16.   ::)

We are getting more than they are forecasting.  :o
Spring came for 2 days, Summer was what, not even a week long & winter is back with a vengeance.
Its the 6th of May, give me a break.
My rant for the day.  ;D

The title may change to More Damn Snow! in April but there is always something magical to me about the year's first coating of the white stuff.  The world looks so different...

We are set to get 3-4 inches today..good thing I don't have very far to commute!
