    What's annoying is I went to Sauze D'Oulx (Italian Alps) at the beginning of Feb for a ski trip. We had an awsome time - parties - dancing - women ... you get the idea, but SE England had more snow!!!

    ddp the lake must be nice right now. Do you ever go ice fishing up there. You must really be laughing at Taz snow pics. Up were you are you usually get a foot when we get an inch.

    haven't been ice fishing in about 20 years & less than a mile from lake. i laugh at taz's pictures of snow as that is just a dusting here & in TO. the reason toronto doesn't have much snow is because of all the politicians & lawyer in the city full of hot air melting the snow away

    Very true. Today there was another major protest. Farmers complaining about the Green Band thing. Quite funny.

    I live in seattle washington and are mountains are having the worst snow fall year in history. It always rains here not this year, it has rained 2 or 3 times in the past month. I would kill for snow like that here.
