They don't even start plowing here until it's 2 inches.

They'll never plow here as there are no snow plows!

Plowing? Who plows?

Not us this year, that's for sure. The snow storms keep going by either north or south of us.

Where are you from?

Plows? What plows? If it snows here, We wait and it will melt, only the mountain communities have plows in California. And yeah beware the Black Ice, it's a monster...
Pluto is still a planet.

Well we got our black ice, 6 inches of snow on top, a slight thaw then a re-freeze! It's hell out there! Snow has caved in the roof of my conservatory (weight of snow) and has brought down one of my phone lines.

Had a minor panic attack earlier as the power went out. All electric here. No gas & no chimney for an open fire.

I do have fuel for the generator so wouldn't freeze, just not ideal losing mains supply.

Ooop north, specifically Oldham. The weather people were saying we'd gets loads of snow, but we've ended up getting zilch.

Of course now I've said that a blizzard will begin in three, two, one... :)

Winning after work (again).
3-day weekend after all.
Not missing snow at all - snows here about every 5 years, for a whole 15 minutes. But I remember Idaho in the winter of 1974, and the two years in Charleston SC where it snowed for 3 days in January both years - thanks, Dad, for teaching me how to drive in snow. And Scotland (Dunoon/Holy Loch) during that same period (1979-1981), sweeping snow off the afterdeck around the shore power cables......
