A hair over 30" (77cm) of snowfall today and winds over 60mph (100kph). Can you imagine?

    Pix

    Whiteouts never photograph well for some strange reason. ;-) I really wish I could show some of the news footage that I saw last night.

    No offense, and I wish no such luck on anyone, but glad it was you and not us. So. Maine escaped this one and I, for one, have had enough of winter....bring on green grass, worms, fishin' and sunshine....please!!!!

    Offense

    I'm not from Halifax. I'm near Toronto.


    I'm not sure if anyone here posts from the Maritimes and if they do they're probably far too busy to be looking here right now. In between hurricane Juan in the fall and the what was described as a weather bomb, Halifax hasn't had it easy lately.


    This past summer my family and I walked into your fair state of Maine like the Von Trapp family for supper one night. Unfortunately the town was closed by 8pm, so we had walk back hungry. L

    I've visited your beautiful city many times...

    the latest was for the "Tall Ships" in 2000, and I can't believe the pix! This has been quite a winter here in "Joisey", but nothing quite that bad! Looks like heavy, wet, "rubber snow" too. Take care while shoveling, and treat yourself to a couple "schooners" when you're done!

    Great city you have. I and my wife were there just after 9-11 and visited the CN Tower...amazing how many people just stood there and looked up...too afraid to take the ride up. Also visited the Hockey Hall of Fame......really enjoyed our visit. Don't judge all of Maine by one closed up little town.....Portland is alive and booming (cold, but nary any snow this year).

    Rec'd these pics from a friend in Labradour. Makes the 2 feet of snow in my yard a sure sign of spring! Pic number three is from the west coast - just a bit of fun!

    Amazing shots Glen

    What part of CA are you in? I've seen drifts almost like that just north of London, Ont in the Lucan snow belt. They'd have to start from the far shoulder and start dropping the 15' drifts with the wingtip plow or on the bad ones pure payloader dig some out a bit at a time... Those help explain why nobody lives there! L

    CN Tower

    The best part of the CN tower is the glass floor on the lower observation level. It's a great leap of faith for many people to walk on a window 1122' above the ground. That's the SkyDome to the right of the shot.

    Al, no knock at all on Maine as long as you stop exporting them shed like Husky cats!!! It was just a funny evening made possible by using the ancient two feet form of transport.

    High in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains - Cranbrook B.C. The pic posted is the snowing clearing on the Trans Labradour Hwy - population density of about .2 person per 100 square kms.

    I'm in Hazel land. You must need to cover a fair area there. This is the land of gas and scorched air. FAG is the real estate term for it. L

    I moved to Prince edward Island two years ago from Kentucky. I've never seen this much snow in my life. Twelve foot drift covered the car on thurs morning.
