9th snowiest winter in 135 years

February 19, 2008

I don't remember the last time we have had such a snowy winter!  Yesterday I heard our area is breaking records for the snowiest winter. Russ sent me the newspaper report that said, "Seasonal total to date is 54.8 inches — good for ninth on the list of snowiest winters in the 135 years that records have been kept. An additional 8 inches — which seems eminently doable in light of the more than 20 inches that have fallen so far this month — would vault this winter's snowfall into third on the all-time list, eclipsing the 62.4 inches that fell in 1959-60."

Which is why I don't remember the last time we have had this much snow...The last time we did was the year I was born. :-) 

Here are some more pictures of our snow.

    I'm so jealous!

  2. At this time in the year, I'm glad it's with you right now. I've had all I can enjoy this year. :)


  3. I'm jealous, too; and what, may I ask, is in that first picture? It looks like a frozen child! :-o

  4. That would be my garden angel. A friend bought it for me when my momma died. In the Spring, she will be surrounded by daffodils. :o)

  5. Oh phew! Look at the picture closely, and see if it doesn't look like a child's face peeking out from under all that snow, to you!

    Not that I seriously thought you'd buried one of your boys in the snow! ;-Þ

  6. I am join the ranks of the jealous.
    I can only dream of having that much snow. If we ever get that much..the entire community would shut down. Actually I would like purely for selfish reasons..I wouldn't have to go anywhere and could just stay home.

  7. Oh, it is fun...Once or twice in a season. Now?? It's getting old!

    I'd be happy to share!

    Russ is ready to go on a vacation to somewhere warm. I'm all for that!! :-D
