    6 inches of snow and 40 mph ENE winds last night qualifies the storm as a blizzard. I found plenty of shingle bits as I was shovelling, so yes, right now you can count me as jealous!!

    Enjoy it, you lucky bastard! (In my best Monty Python voice.. :-)

    20+ inches of snow 60+ mph wind gust last night here in Chicago. I didn't have work today so that is good.

    This should be it though usually there is one big storm late in the winter and then the weather takes a turn for the better. Usually.

    We got a rather low (by Buffalo standards) accumulation of +/-8" from the storm... was expecting much worse.

    . Humping my snow blower is getting really old.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Well, in the past 3 weeks got about 60 inches of snow. Then to top it off today, and ice storm with 5 more inches. Looks cool though, it's like walking through trenches to get everywhere, and all the trees are icey.
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    Yeah, but the rent on a studio there would pay my mortgage (4-bdr house on 1/2-acre) for three months! I can endure a little flaky white crap falling out of the sky -- one flake falling for every flake you share the state with, dude...!

    No snow, just lots of ice. Trails are still rideable, providing one's bike has tires with "teeth". Plenty of fun to be had, no beach required. You SoCal wusses need to experience a greater variety of riding conditions...

    I was born on the east coast and spent two fantastic winters in Buffalo NY.

    I'll take the boring rides we have all winter long....... ;-)

    Unreal winter here in southern New England, thanks for asking. Ripped it up on my backcountry xc gear yesterday in some of the best fluff I've seen around here. Heading up north in a few hours for 2 for 1 lift tickets at Cannon Mtn tomorow to get some downhilling in. Snow is awesome.

    We could have used some of that snow around here in CO, all we got was the cold.

    It was -18 when I went in to work this morning; but it could have been a lot worse !!

    One of my nearby rides has an automated weather station that was showing - 44

    The snow here in Omaha was awful, the wind feels like tornadoes of needles as it hits any bare skin, every square inch of pavement is either snow or black ice covered, and it couldn't be more beautiful.

    Oneonta, NY. 6 inches (give or take) of snow yesterday, and a big of winter mix last night and today. Classes were cancelled today.

    I went XC skiing for 2 hours yesterday, built and sessioned some jumps on my freestyle skis last night, then went XC skiing for 3 hours today. Oh yeah, spinning last night for an hour as well. More skiing tonight and tomorrow, then making my first pilgrimage to Ray's in Cleveland this weekend.


    Idunno what y'all are whining about......hahahaha
    Go ride your bike.

    No kidding. It was -22 air temp, 47 below with the wind chill, when I went out to start my work truck yesterday here in Northeast Wyoming.
