Even More Snow

Here's a look at last night....

More snow fell - roughly 8cm's more of the stuff, 32cm's total so far last week.

I thought I'd check out what others had to say about how much snow we get here seeing that this is my first winter in Victoria, BC.

Pretty unusual for Victoria where roughly one third of winters will see virtually no snow, with less than 5 cm falling during the entire season. When snow does fall, it rarely lasts long on the ground. Victoria averages just 2-3 days per year with at least 5 cm of snow on the ground.

  1. Wow, that's a ton! In the five winters I lived there I think we only had snow once for a couple of weeks and we had to walk an hour to lectures because the buses couldn't get through because they didn't have enough snowplows! :-)

  2. That is pretty much how things are looking here - snow, snow, and more snow. Enjoy the winter!

  3. Funny... while you're experiencing weather completely out of the norm, I'm sitting here thankful that we FINALLY get seasonally appropriate weather! It's cold and snowy here too, but it's SUPPOSED to be! +12 at the end of November was nice and balmy and all, but kinda hard to take when my internal calendar said it was supposed to be -12!

    Call me strange, but I think I'm the only guy who doesn't really mind this weather... it seems, at least here, that we're back to normal.

  4. It looks like you're off to a good start this winter, Jen! It appears this will be a GOOD winter for many cities around the world! I sure hope so. We need it.

  5. Wow Jen, looks like a beautiful winter wonderland there! Call me nuts but I actually kinda miss the white stuff. Here I don't like the white stuff, the city doesn't even have snow plows just in case we do get dumped on. So you can just imagine the streets.... Do you really want to hear that it got up to 61F here yesterday? Today, mid 40's.

  7. Hi, Expat! It was nice to see you at synch. I heard that Canada is supposed to have a white Christmas coast to coast for the first time in 40 years!
