The forecast says winter comes on Thursday :-\  First rain, then snow and then clear sky and bitterly cold (-6oC  ;) )

But it's true, Cohan, it is much better to work when the snow is dry and it is so cold that it doesn't melt on your clothes.

Hopefully that sequence of weather does not leave you with too much ice, Trond!
Wet pantlegs and gloves aside, I did not complain much when we had above normal temperatures for most of December and half of January  ;D

I thought that we would have a warm winter in Seattle, but it seems like that is not the case. It's been snowing for a couple of days and is supposed to get worse... This picture is from yesterday and there is lots more snow on the way...

From the beautiful Pacific Northwest, USA,
where summer is mild and dry but winter is dark and very wet... USDA Zone 7b or 8 (depends on the year)

Nights below -30C/-22F; this morning was supposed to be down to -37C/-34F; days below -20C;we've just been lucky in the western strip of the province to be out of the severe windchill zone that most of the province  has had-- we had windchills in the -30'sC while other places were in the -40's and -50'sC; today at a high of -24, no wind here.... a couple views from the drive to work Monday and Tuesday.. not as poor visibility as it looks, it's exaggerated by the telephoto lens.. we had very light snow for a couple days- only a cm or two after a couple of days- otherwise drifting and blowing on the roads would have been worse...
The first 3 shots are Monday, last three Tues, when it was bit less clear; the last shot is a spot that normally has a mountain view..

Full albums if you are a sucker for punishment ;)

I can only imagine such cold!  We have dropped as low as -13 C this winter..which is still quite mild.  As I type this, we have no snow but expecting 20 cm tomorrow.  Long range is for rain and 7 C next week so with any luck, this next snowfall will melt again.

We got 1 inch of sleet today! Still a degree or two above zero so it does melt but the forecast says more rain and thunder! The predicted winterly weather is postponed to next week on Tuesday and lasting for 12 hours ;)
