    I got my own first snow shovel as a "gift" when I was about 4 years old, a little kid-size one, and I've been shoveling ever since. My last few years in Florida have been a welcome change, though, a break I'm glad to have.

    In North Dakota I would shovel in nothing more than my shirtsleeves down to about 0 degrees F, unless it was windy. And when it got windy I didn't shovel at all, because the snow would blow back as fast as I was removing it, a wasted effort.

    Actually most of eastern North Dakota doesn't usually get really big snowstorms, just an inch or 2 at a time, but like 50 or more of those a winter. What's worse are the ground blizzards or white-outs, when high winds for a day or more blow the powdery snow like a sandstorm, and bury things. It's funny how the wind works, cause you'll see a field where the bare ground has been exposed, while next to it a whole house has been obliterated.

    That happened to me once at my Fargo townhouse. Packed snow was blown against the front door to the eaves and it couldn't be opened, the back ground floor "garden" windows were completely under, and I didn't dare jump out the second floor windows because the snow beneath was deeper than my height.

    So I was trapped for 3 days, fortunately not losing electricity, and with enough food on hand (and booze, thank gawd) to last me. Finally my BF had a plowing service open his 150-foot driveway so he could get out, the streets also passable by then, and he drove over to rescue me.

    He shoveled his way to the door (my own shovel was outside in a detached garage I couldn't reach) and finally got it open. I spent the night at his place for a change of scenery, and rewarded him for his brave deed. icon_wink.gif

    Yeah, snow's a bitch. And I've also been buried when my snowmobile sank through soft powder into a ravine I didn't know was there. Took me hours to get out. Again, the wind plays tricks with the landscape, like a giant spatula spreading white icing on a cake. It covers & conceals the depressions, leveling everything, and if you don't know your way around it can be like quicksand.

    Snow is awesome! Shoveling it can be if it's powder. Other idiots driving in it is not!

    We don't usually have snow until after Christmas, if then. Some winters I don't have to shovel snow at all... BUT..

    Now I know who to call when it does snow, Shan, the OP. Sounds like he'd do a great job.

    We don't have any snow yet, and living in a huge-ass city I don't have to shovel anything. I'm looking forward to getting back to the Northeast in the New Year so I can see some real snow!

    I've got a retired neighbor who gets out his snow blower in the morning and does the sidewalks and driveways for a bunch of us. I love that guy.

    We just have freezing rain and winds, but no snow for now. So I guess that a good thing.

    In PEI we have been setting record highs every day for the past week or so. It was 14C a couple of days ago. We have no snow on the ground at all.
    Today is 4C . Winds have been high for a couple of days though.

    The rest of the Maritimes have no been quite so lucky though - there is huge flooding in parts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia .

    PEI's weather is shielded by the Northumberland Strait which forms a warm air mass that deflects many storm systems.

    I really don't miss the huge snowfalls of Eastern Ontario.

    I recall growing up where we had a small lawn tractor with a plow for the snow. I'd go out and plow our driveway, two neighbors and my grandmothers, just to return and find ours filled with snow again!

    Oh there is something definitely worth having moved to California. I don't have that problem here! Although there is a slight chance of some sprinkles today icon_lol.gif

    Translation to AMERICAN English: ...till im at the store buying Tylenol and Bengay.

    I live in Pennsylvania. Sometimes when we have a large snowfall and the wind is really blowing the snow will drift up against the side of my house and I can walk right out the second floor window.
