Default Snow anyone?

On Christmas day, just a 2 hour drive east of my house, Erie Pennsylvania received a 53 inch (135cm) snowfall in about 18 hours, when all was said and done it was 60 inches. Meanwhile the ski area just 25 miles father east only got 32 inches. This was a Lake Effect snowstorm. When very cold air crosses a large lake with warm water and the wind is blowing fast but not too fast, Lake Effect storms can dump huge amounts of snow in localized areas.

An inch or two around Seattle on Christmas, enough for a convincing display, without the hazards.

Four inches on Christmas Day, we did not expect it to stay, but unseasonably cold weather delayed its inevitable demise.

It is -12C here right now, and it only got a few degrees warmer during the day. (Not recording setting, cold down here on the water with the wind chill.)

Yesterday we had enough to make the ground white for a couple of hours. 30 miles south of us it blocked a road up.

Cold snap in Calgary. -31 C last night. Not a lot of snow, though. About 25 cm of accumulation in my backyard. Most of that fell about a week ago.

Now that is cold! I can't remember anything colder than about -27C here, and that is pretty rare. The ~300cm of snow we got over January and February a few years back (2015) wasn't too amusing.

Folks in northern lands are sending their spare cold down here.

> I can't remember anything colder than about -27C here

I hope -17F is very rare for Boston near the water.

I designed this heating system for -5F. I have open ocean/bay a mile both sides; here is 10F warmer than inland. That first winter we did touch -9F and indoor temps sagged.

Snow was called for 6-10" and barely made 6" (because the first dump was wet slop instead of powder). I blew and shoveled because we had kitchen cabinets coming. NaCl salt stopped working. Today I kept running outside to saw trim as temps fell toward 3F. Will be several below for the next few nights. That snow is not going anywhere.

It's pretty rare, but has happened in just the past couple of years. Temperatures in the low negative numbers at night are probably a yearly occurrence in January and February, I generally don't pay that much attention..

Crikey, that's cold. On Christmas day was just shy of 40C here, South Australia, and has been a much nicer set of low 30s since.
