We live in Atlantic Canada, to be precise, we live in Moncton, New Brunswick.
So far, this winter, we’ve received 340 cm of snow or 11.3ft of the white stuff… Most of it in the last 3 weeks or so.
As Emily says, we are not outdoor people. This winter, will not change that fact.
Anyone living somewhere sunny that would like to experience this lovely winter wonderland… Let me know, I am sure we can arrange something 🙂
I have to say I was shocked when I flew into Fredericton yesterday and seen it all first hand! It’s a little deeper then winters past!
Yes it is!
It’s lovely to look at, but I would love to live on an island! I was in Quebec many years ago in July and it was chilly. Spring is coming. Blessings!
Our summer are cold for people used to warmer climate. 🙂
Yes they are, but I enjoyed my stay.⛄😂
As much as the people here complain about this winter (including me) it has really been relatively mild. Sure it’s very cold right now but not cold compared to many places. And I fully expect that, by Easter, we’ll be seeing warmer days, perhaps even some of the bulbs growing and blooming. I would not want to deal with that amount of snow. I barely like to deal with what we have had (maybe a total of 18 inches this winter). And, as Dave Barry said one time, “The main problem with winter sports is, get this, they take place in the winter.”
:). I grew up skiing and I don’t mind cold weather but after Emily was born, her challenges turned us into indoor people. There are just so many safe things you can do outdoor with a child who can’t walk or a child who’s earning to walk at 4 and have poor balance. We adapted. I haven’t skied or ride a bike in years. Skating is not something we’ve managed to learn yet… Overall, we watch sports and hide indoor. So this snow can go. We’ve had enough…
We have had milder winter comparatively this year in Ohio. That sounds like a lot of snow dump.
It is a lot of snow. You should look up this video on you tube. Stormageddon 2015. It’s a guy in Dieppe(next town over) trying to find a way out of his house… It really shows the amount of snow we received Sunday. It’s a little out of control.
we were hit very, very badly last winter (in michigan), with both extreme cold and snow. this winter has not been so bad, though we’re going through a very cold snap at the moment. i’m looking forward to spring. c’mon march!
I’m looking forward to spring as well but meanwhile, the scenery is quite spectacular.
Just like last year it seems how the Maritimes get hit with so much more snow than we do in Quebec…but I don’t know about you Pascale, but I am finding the cold winters these past 2 years difficult.
Last year, we got 3 storms late March which felt like the winter went on forever. This year, its snowy and windy… Not too cold but so much snow. I don’t think we would have as much snow if it was colder… Still, my vote goes to hibernation or moving to Arizona.
Ditto…I could sleep all winter
“We are not outdoor people”. Lol, I don’t know how many times I have said that this winter! But Spring has to come, right??
Counting the days till spring shows up. We have so much snow. If it warms up to quickly before the ground is ready, we will have floods… Makes me want to move…
