There might've been enough snow last year, but this year, thus far, the snow cover has been light and inconstant. Still another three and a bit months to go, though, I suppose.

Here too, we've barely had a dusting. When I was little, it started snowing in late November or early December, and we saw the ground again in March. I have snapshots of the snow nearly reaching the eaves of the garage, where we used to build snowcaves. Okay, it's great not having to shovel the long-ass driveway we have, but the climate change is worrisome.

Do you get affected by El Nino and La Nina fluctuations? There is a La Nina event this year which is making our summer cool and wet.

Often, yes, although it varies somewhat depending on where the jet stream is.

Re: *laugh*

I remember childhood winters where, after shoveling the roof, my father and I would get down from it by simply leaping into the snow in the yard. It was THAT high. Granted, this was in BC and they've actually had a heavy winter last year, but, yeah, I don't as much snow now as I did in my youth, either. (I miss building snow tunnels...)
