it snowed here last night. it was the first time since 2 months. it technically snowed on New Year's Day, but that wasn't really much, about an inch or less, so... The metro area here got about 3 - 6 inches of snow, depending on county/city.

It hasnt snowed much, only a few heavy falls. I love the snow, but also hate it. In the winter I will complain about it, and in the summer I will complain about the heat.....

You're complaining about... what? lack of snow?
In sydney these couple of days the asphalt is hot enough to fry eggs! not to mention popping ants...

"move to alaska"

I laughed at that comment like no other...I'm currently attending this fall semester at UAS in Juneau, a largish town about smack dab in the middle of Southeast Alaska(AKA that strip of land that lays along Canada's coast).

It snowed last weekend, stayed for two days, and now all that remains are graying lumps shoved in the ditch. It's been so warm here I've gone with out a jacket a couple of times! High 40's, low 30's......the temperature is so bizare one almost shivers with a feeling of why.

Here the temperature is around 40 Degree Centigrade.... And the coldest it gets is 18 Degree Centigrade...

It hit 44.1 degrees Centigrade here the other day.. or for those that use Farenheit.. 111.4 F

In Melbourne it was reported to get to 47.0 Centigrade last week.. or 116.6 F - I wish it snowed here.. I have NEVER seen snow.

Britain gets a raw deal with snow. We have enough that it causes havoc on our transport networks but nothing like enough that it actually becomes 'fun' with snowball fights and snowmen and stuff. Also with our wet and mild climate it very quickly turns to sludge which creates even more problems.

Yeah, It has been snowing here as well for a couple of days but
then the snow froze and the roads where nearly unusable, You
had to drive 40kmph on the high way!

Come over to my place, I have to much snow!

It took me the whole morning to dig the car out of the snow! Good exercise though!

But right now I have so much snow on my frontyard, that I don't know where to put it, but if I've understood this thred right someone is in desperate need for snow, so my question is:
Do you want my snow, and in that case where should I send it?

you austrailians shouldn't be complaining about no snow. i would be so happy if i could move to a warm climate where i never got to see snow and ice. the cold sucks people.

Snow rules, jessie. If only we could have the snow with out the cold...

when i say snow, i mean real snow, you know, where its over a foot deep, so tightly packed that you can walk on it in sneakers w/o problems. Then you go nordic skiing in the woods, ahh. Thats the life. Snowshoeing is also good. You can actually see the roads now, not just hard-packed ice and snow. I used to nordic ski around my neighborhood on the roads.
My spandex bodysuit is saved for races, when i can look at all the girls in spandex bodysuits. But the prob is that the can, ahh, tell.

And yes, spandex keeps me warm, even when it was a -15 deg F windchill.

Yeah - but I just don't operate well in heat... I am living in the wrong country for an affliction like that. ;)
