True. The ocean makes a big difference. But, take a look at a map of Canada ( Google ). Toronto, Ontario is south of Minneapolis, Minn.

The temperature buffer is about 400 miles east of Vancouver. Cities in the interior of BC do get more snow than Vancouver and lower temps in winter but nothing like the snowy land images that people south of us seem to relate the whole county to. Most of the interior cities have been free of snow for awhile now and seeing temps up to the high 60's this week. Its not until you head east and get close to or east of the rockies or much further north do you start to see a lot more of the white stuff that I suspect visitors from the south are expecting to see.

Carl, I drove by today... figured you were still in bed, no lights on. That backyard Snooze looked mighty nice!
Hi Mike. I was wondering what happened.
I was up at 7 am. Had one light on. My den lights can't be seen from
the road I guess. I don't burn a lot of electricity.
I left around 9:30 am to check out the damage in Spavinaw.
Sorry I missed you.

I feel your pain, I live in the snowbelt up here just North of Duluth and we are getting dumped on again. 3rd major snowstorm in the last 5 days! Hopefully we'll be able to get plowed out tomorrow but this snow is so wet it sticks to everything. Luckily the Casita is in the garage or it would have been buried until the middle of May or so. If it wasn't so expensive I would consider retiring to the great Northwest- Vancouver is looking mighty nice right now!!

Yikes! My sister plans on coming up to Bemidji to camp next month! Hope it'll be spring by then! We spent our childhood summers there. Of course, if there's still snow on the ground, there won't be MOSQUITOES AND DEERFLIES!!!!!

Our neighbor just blew 6-8 inches off our driveway. Should melt soon though.

OH ! Oh!

Pack it good in one of those insulated boxes so it will stay hot too,oh and those white packing peanut things so it want get all mushed up or broke or anything.

P.S. I will add my own homemade ice cream...so don't worry about sending that to go with the pie.

Ok I'm going to my room now to hide and watch for it to get here............

I was in Alaska in the Cook inlet. It was early December. The weather was above freezing. Much warmer then Calgary at the time. That Pacific ocean is quite warm.

Well, I sympathize with you Kevin. After having a fairly mild winter we have now had snowfall for 12 days in a row in the Black Hills. We are grateful for the moisture, though. Last summer was one of frequent wildfires and rangelands not growing much grass for wildlife and livestock. Our forecast for today was for rain. But I got up this morning to one more inch of snow and it is still coming down.

Yesterday the propane driver got stuck trying to get up to my house and didn't make it. Sure hope the road dries out before my furnace runs out of fuel!

Dave
