Its a windy and unseasonably warm 13°c at the minute here in the UK, as you can imagine that means zero chance of a white christmas..

It looks like that in Montreal (and in Quebec in general):





We had a white Christmas. On Christmas eve, it was windy with a good -20C°.

And we're waiting for another 20cm (~ 8 inches?) of snow tuesday night. So it will look like this on my street. It's always the same thing:

We've had an un-seasonably warm December in Pittsburgh this year. High temps have averaged in the 40's and we had a couple days that hit 60 degrees. It's also been raining alot, and we've gotten very little snow. The biggest snow fall we've gotten so far was nothing more than a light dusting.

I personally love cold temperatures. No snow during winter = no ice rinks outside, no alpine skiiing, and no hand breaking with my car.

Not saying its totally good fcm,especially for New Hamp ski areas. Hasnt really been cold enough consistantley for ski areas to make snow. All of our huge resorts like Waterville Valley,etc,are hurting. Sucks for the kids also,they want to go skiding,tabboggining,skateing,etc. But it is what it is. You must have to travel to ski in Quebec,especially in Montral,eh? Stowe in VT would be a little over an hour from you,where the hell do you downhill ski up there? Again,enjoying my milder than usual winter here in NH,even though the snowmobilers hate it.

Ehhh... we in Canada have our own mountains that we can ski on. Orford, Sutton, Tremblant, Ste-Anne, Le Massif, etc. In the US, I only know Jay Peak (Vermont).

Same here. We have had zero measurable snow which is unheard of in Buffalo this late in the season.

Sometimes I wonder what it'd be like to live in a place that actually has a "real" winter where snow stays on the ground for several months. Then again, I can golf in shorts pretty much year round. I lived in Alaska for a year so I got a taste of it and wasnt a real big fan of 20 below with 50 mph winds.

High today was in the mid 60's but it was a gloomy rainy day, same tomorrow but not quite as warm.

I had heard of Thunder Bay before but really didn't know much about the geography and such until it was on Mantracker recently. Some really beautiful, rugged, isolated terrain.

Aaah Pilots rub it in eh? But seriously,the ground has to freeze for snow to stick and accumulate around here. Which it hasnt. We've had two major storms,close to a foot on each,but because of warm temps,its vanished. Except for the plowed snowpiles. Usually about now you see people ice fish on our frozen lakes,but they havent frozen yet. Strange,i will say. But im not complaining,i hate winter!
