Reminds me of the Colorado Blizzard of October 1997: a real record breaker. At least we never lost telephone service or electricity. At one point, a friend of mine called me up to say that some friends of hers were stuck at a gas station about 2.5 miles from our place in the country, and could they take refuge with us. I looked out at a Land Rover that had gotten stuck in drifts by our house, and told her, "No, I don't think so." ETA: And as grotesque as they may be, I don't think I've ever seen a Hummer stuck in a ditch. Hummer's are the volunteer vehicle of choice when hospitals are desperate to get stranded personnel.

We did here. It took until New Years Eve, but it poured that day and broke the record that evening.

The European Alps are getting more than their share of snow this season. Especially Bavaria in Germany and Austria are having critical amounts of snow fall. This weekend another load is expected with another 1meter aka 3+feet. Switzerland in its alpine region is also getting some of the white stuff, although not yet in the alarming amounts reported elsewhere. Avalanches are taking their way into the valleys.

Wow that’s a lot of snow! I like the bike picture. 🤗

One year out near Leesburg we had a blizzard with 20 ft drifts. Snow piled up against our doors, electricity out for 5 days. We climbed out the windows to shovel. Our friends and their neighbors in Lovettsville had to be rescued by helicopter, the roads were impassible.

I’ll take California, TYVM.

The river cruising industry in Europe will be thrilled with all that snow. The rivers were incredibly low in many places in Europe and caused a lot of headaches for them and their passengers, not to mention the river shipping industry in general. German rivers were particularly bad.

As long as I don't have to drive in it before it gets plowed, I like snow. We have often taken vacations to places like Alaska and Norway in the winter. We tried for Iceland last year, but I got sick and had to cancel.

The only place I really don't like it is in my driveway.

I guess not so much. The river and canal shipping industries require an average number of days with rain from spring to autumn to keep the water levels up. The thawing of the snow happens late March thru May depending on the temperatures. This means we can get flooding situations in those couple of months on rivers and lakes. Critical conditions can happen in early to mid May when spring storms bring lot of rain while snow thawing is still in progress. The rain aids in the melting process and we get too much water at once in the upstream river systems.

Yeah, same thing happens here with heavy snow. I live where there are lots of rivers, creeks, hills, and mountains. Spring melt after heavy snow can be very dangerous.

I was just thinking of it in terms of the river cruising because I'm on a couple of FB groups where people were talking constantly all summer and fall about cruises being canceled, changing ships, being bused instead of sailing along the rivers. Most took it in stride and most realized that it's just the way it is when you are traveling on rivers there or anywhere.

They've been busy trying to clear the snow from Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City where today's AFC Divisional Playoff game is being played at 3:30 CST. I'll have to watch the pre-game show to see how well they did.

:snippity:

A maximum 27,000 people will be running in the marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon on Sunday, according to the race website.
