Undeniably snowy

It happened this past weekend.  It really snowed on the Crystal Coast.  I think it is safe to say that many places got six inches.  Some got more and a few received less.

In Bluewater Cove I think the total was right in line with the four to six inches. At least that looks like what was on my boat.

Last night I talked to some Canadian friends who were unsympathetic to our snow plight.  Knowing first hand how much snow Canadians have to shovel, I can appreciate their position.

However, this morning I read an article on Accuweather that showed a blocking high sitting over eastern Canada. That is what is driving the cold air towards the south.  The result is that our temperatures are much colder than normal.

This morning I was thinking of retaliatory moves, but I know that "normal" weather patterns are bound to resume eventually.

Our friends who live near Dublin, Virginia have seen snow on the ground for a longer period this year than at any time in the over twenty years that they have lived at their home.  Their driveway would scare even a Canadian.

In a recent visit to our other home in Roanoke, Virginia we had to deal with snow that had to be cut then shoveled.

Fortunately the Crystal Coast snow did not last very long.  The rest of the east coast cannot say that.

For more snow pictures check out links that I have in a post on snow that I did on the Crystal Coast Life blog.
