just a light sprinkle on the 25th - approx 1" in our neighborhood, but the poor folks in Pennsylvania - 34" in one day, and a total of just over 5 feet since Sunday

"White(out) Christmas"? - careful what you wish for

It was -26C this AM here. Not much snow in the past few days, it tends not to snow much when it is below -10C and it has been daytime highs of ~-15C here for a while. We have got a couple inches in the past week or so, and road salt does very little at low temps, so the roads are pretty slippery - sensible highway road speeds cut nearly in half.

At risk as the cold water from the melting icecaps and floods into the Atlantic Ocean.

Headed for -30C tonight
The coldest I can recall was about -37C

We hit on average (1900-2016) in Celsius:
-35 or lower once every 10 years
-30 or lower once a year
-20 or lower ~20 times a year

In the past 20 years
-35 or lower once every 10 years
-30 or lower ~every other year
-20 or lower ~15 times a year

Here's what is happening to RonE and me and much of the lands along the Canada/US border. Someone left the door open to Hudson's Bay and all the Arctic is spilling out. Has been since Xmas and will continue past New Year. Not record-setting cold but setting records for length of a cold-spell.

Coldest we've had here was -27C, that was 20 odd years back. We get -12 or so every winter though, coldest is usually late January. Only -8.3 so far this winter, it's been colder and more snow in England & Wales!
