    Ok where I live in Dublin is lowland so we really don't get much at all. A dusting maybe. A couple of inches would be 'significant' but only if it 'sticks'. We had nothing last winter or the winter before. In winter 2017-2018 we had storm Emma which dumped more snow on us than we'd seen in about a decade but thats unusual. It shut the country down for about 10 days!
    The North and west and the mountains get a but more.
    The main city councils would have snow ploughs but they don't get a lot of use! We don't do snow tyres or anything like that. Snow is too rare!!

    Speaking of snow, we're having it today! It's not accumulating because the ground is too warm, but it's been snowing lightly all day. Pretty early for snow for us in Missouri, although it snowed on Halloween last year about an inch.

    Not ready for cold and dreary. The trees have been pretty but it has been mostly cloudy for several days so you can't really tell how pretty they are.

    Oh I love snow - its lovely and autumnal here this week but I'm locked in the house until I'm done with the covid -19 dose which won't be until Saturday! I hope it stays nice so I can get a few walks in at the weekend.

    I am a summer gal. Love being outside feeling the sun, going to the beach, etc. I just wish it wasnít so humid in CT. Would love to move somewhere dryer but then Iíd miss the ocean. My second fave is fall. The foliage is beautiful, the air is crisp, but bearable and the deer are more out and about in my yard (I dig watching them). And I love pumpkin flavored everything so bring it on! Spring is a distant third. Itís just extended winter, so it seems and then rainy chilly yuck. And winter is so distant it doesnít register on the list. While the snow is beautiful and even the ice on the trees is pretty, i just canít get warm and I just hate being inside all the time. I think this week will end with rain as well NKIT, but the weather peeps love to talk snow so who knows.

    I agree with you, spring just gets long waiting for the warmth of summer.

    I get a kick out of the weather peeps. They are almost gleeful when something bad is coming, such as a hurricane or snowstorm!

    Georgia weather in December is unpredictable. It's very common to go from shorts and t-shirts weather (70s-80s) to some of the coldest temperatures Georgia will get for a winter season. Just the week before last, we went from highs near 80 to a high of 45, practically overnight (the low the following night dropped to 25). For now, the weather seems to have calmed, with the next seven days having lows around 40 and highs in the low-mid 60s. I enjoy cooler weather, and this is my ideal weather- warm enough to enjoy the outdoors and to not make my joints hurt, but cold enough for there not to be any gnats or mosquitoes.

    We had a Nor'easter yesterday into today(ended about 8am) ! I got around 8 inches of snow. This is the first big storm in at least two years. Last year I only had an inch of snow all winter long. My two sisters who live in So. Jersey just had rain the whole time. My one sister who lives at the shore said they had appx. 40 mph winds and massive waves - 4 to 7 feet, which is huge for this area. It has been cold and sunny since this morning and supposed to be the same tomorrow. Winter has arrived !

    Hi KW ! How ya doing ? It was very cold at night the last couple of days here too. Today is supposed to be a high of 33-35 and tomorrow is supposed to be 39-40 with slight rain. It is supposed to be 50 degrees on Christmas day !! I saw on the news last week that they daid Jan. & Feb. are supposed be wet and warmer than normal. Guess we will see... Summer is a long way off, hopefully by than most people will have been able to get the vaccine and can really be able to enjoy the summer.
