just saw the forecast for today and we can expect 6-8 inches, this winter has been brutal on us, most snow in history, coldest temps in history. Last year I used my snow blower 2 times, this year 6 times and It does not get pulled out of the garage unless their is 4 inches of fresh.... It is also too cold to ride the snowmobile

I so remember the '78 blizzard. Where shoveling became a huge issue because one would have to toss the stuff 5 or more feet up to get it on the side of the walkway. I keep telling my kids that winters back then had tons of snow and bitter cold. This is the first really cold winter my kids, nieces and nephews have seen. I'm still loving it! I love my wool socks and sweaters. A few years back we had a record snow fall for the season 100" +. I have a very long sheet of paper marking each snow fall. It starts at the floor and goes up onto the ceiling when we hang it up. At least that year it melted between storms. It has been such a pretty winter. I really haven't seen dirty snow this year. IMO if the trees are bare and everything looks dead, you might as well have snow. It makes it not look depressing.

IIRC, we got 26" of snow one day and the Moline police dept got on tv and ask for all snowmobilers to go out on the streets and get stranded people and take them home. We (20 of us)patrolled the streets for about 8 hrs and had a blast going down the main drags 60-80 mph after taking folks home. We were out all night and until about noon the next day before the police ordered us off the streets.

I'm a freak though I love the cold. I'd much rather have single digit temps than 90+ temps. I predict that spring is going to pop up out of nowhere. It's going to get warm, the snow will melt as the crocus' start to push out of the ground, and all in two weeks time.

I hope you're right about spring in two weeks. We have had cold temps and a snow storm every 2 0r 3 days since the end of November.

We've got a bunch here in Meadville...that darn puddle about 30 miles to the north (Lake Erie) thankfully has frozen over so that helps with the lake effects, but we're getting this crap up from the south, that just keeps coming! This winter has definitely been one of the more intense in recent memory, possibly since the great blizzard of 94, but I was 9 when that happened, so my memory may not have been attuned to that...
