are you sure for that? i think we have just forgotten how normal winter looks like. in Croatia we have quite a lot of snow, too, but this winter is so normal that didn't happen in last 10 years for sure! people here are making drama of this snow, but when i was a kid, winters like this were just average.

I think the winters on the northern hemisphere are in particular snowy, but I don't of if it is really cold. I know January 2010 was almost 3 C colder than average in NL, but the north pole was warmer than usual.

The U.S. East Coast sees record snowfall, and so are many areas of Europe where snow is less common (UK, Netherlands, Denmark) than in the Alps or Scandinavia.

Total whiteout in southern Romania at this moment. An important regional road was blocked, some drivers are still waiting rescue. It's a massive blizzard, wind speeds varying between 64-144 km/h (40-90 mph). A train got stuck because there's a snow drift more than 1m tall on the tracks. The motorways aren't doing much better, being mostly in open plains where the snow is drifting all over the place, visibility no more than 10-15m even with the best xenon lights. Lucky it's midnight and traffic is pretty low.

Chicago got dumped on yesterday as well. The snowstorm finally moved on (towards the east coast) but not without leaving its mark. When I walked out to my car this morning to go to work, I was almost knee deep in snow. So much fun digging out of that.

Well, it's called Global Watming, not local warming, so it can be colder in one place and warmer in another. Like Vancouver.

Vancouver rarely gets a lot of snow anyway. It's northern BC that gets the snow.

I don't know about snow, but I read that it's warmer than usual for this time of the year.

Our latest storm stalled and feed over the warm Atlantic which made us get more snow and it took a full day to leave , in fact it just ended a few hrs ago. Now the winds form the back side of this storm will come.

All write about 1,5 meter of snow blanket (about 55 inch) in Washington D.C., but all pictures that I see them on the internet don't show more than about 50 cm of snow (about the same as here in Slovenia). Where is all that snow?

The warm front that caused the last snow storm in Romania means that the snow has partially melted, so I had to do a lot of puddle dodging.

Don't forget to shovel off your roofs if you've got another storm coming. Sometimes too much snow can cause a cave in, and then you're royally screwed.

It doesn't look much snow (about 20-25 cm). I think shovelling on the roof is unimportant here. Here some roofs already gathered around 3/4 m of snow and no one even considers doing such dangerous work.
