Time to post here. Not liking the look of things for the next two weeks on the GFS...feels like every storm, including the one now affecting us, is too far West. Of course this was always the risk, but it's getting old now, I want to track a proper snow storm rather than something that turns everything to mush.

I hear you, Lake effect. This is the third rainy event here since Christmas. Oh how white it would be if temps had been cold enough.

It's white here...still got 25cms of white cement even after the past 24 hours, but not so pretty. Hoping for a nice 10-15cms from tomorrow and Thursday to freshen it all up.

I can't fathom how you could even be complaining with those conditions. I would take that and run to the bank and never look back.

I'm likely heading up there next month, hope there's plenty of snow around.

Nice that it is still white where you are even if it's not so pretty. Hopefully you cash in on that LES tomorrow and the next day.

I think I'm becoming desensitized to green grass in winter. Seriously I would have lit this page up a few years ago with all these rain storms and zero snow on the ground. Unless a lake squall sneaks down here this week we will be 5 weeks into meteorological winter with no snow on the ground for 3 of the 5 weeks, and 0cm in January. Perhaps the 30cm in Dec has more than satisfied me after last year?
Hope to see some snow before mid month otherwise I may become a frequent visitor here. 😀

Sorry, no crickets at night, and in the day they are pretty quiet. No cicadas either. Birdsong is good though!

I guess it's all about what you are used to and expectations. Twice now we have got up to 45cms, and twice we have had it washed down. When you live in the snow belt you are not expecting the crumbs that fall off the table, but the whole feast smile.gif

Should be about results vs climate normals and expectations which are in line with reality and not off in the clouds (so to speak), with less emphasis on things which haven't actually happened yet IMO.

Then again, this isn't really the thread for rational discussion anyway so I guess it really doesn't matter here.

EDIT: Might as well go for some and just point out that YYZ averages nearly 120mm of rain through the Dec - Mar period. That's the average, keep in mind.

Fair enough.

One day who knows when, all the suffering and frustration of not living in the snow belts will be eased when I get myself up there smile.gif

120+cm on the month doesn't seem like crumbs really, at least to me huh.gif

I guess it's more just aiming for some better tracks and less chance of mixing out which is pretty fair. Some winters have more of their fair share than others.

Precisely. For all the 120cms, we only have 25cms to show for it. It's been frustrating....you have had less snow but a deeper snow pack. We have had 3 thaws now. Getting on my nerves.

Yeah, I see your point. It's sort of like being given presents and then having them snatched away a bunch of times sad.gif

Seriously, the 12z GFS is taking the ****. Apart from a few flakes from a clipper next week, every storm goes West delivering rain, and only after it has passed through does the cold arrive. This is now prime season, short days etc, now is the time we want at least one decent storm to perform...no sign of that at all though.

I'd say February is still prime season, some of our best winter weather over the years has happened in that month. Maybe not for you though since you will be leaving towards the latter half of the season.
