    Very interesting facts. Glad to see that the snow drought is getting less severe!

  2. Flake Fan says:

    What I'd like to see is nation-wide wintesr similar to that of those during the little ice age! That would be really fun!

  3. TheMaineMan says:

    It would be… except we sometimes got so much snow that 75% of the deer population would die in a single winter! I love snow but I still have my limits (150 inches per year would probably be my limit).

  4. HoustonSnow says:

    I want snow in Texas please. Please mother nature lol

  5. glennkoks says:

    HoustonSnow, I live on the south side of Houston in Friendswood and we got pretty close last year in Feb. with a little sleet and snow mixed, more sleet than snow.  Maybe this year.

  6. HoustonSnow says:

    @Glennkoks I live in the Cypress area and last winter around the end, they hyped something up saying we’re in for 3 inches of snow…and we got just a LITTLE black ice…and and very sill ice storm not even a moderate ice storm…the ice was very minimal and I stayed up all night expecting 3 inches of snow lol 

    I really hope we get something this year. Even an inch will be satisfying.

  10. KatD-Mo. says:

    Now I know where my snow went!  I thought Co., Neb., and Ks. took it all.  not soo!!!!!!!

  11. snowlover says:

    Fatima good to hear from you!  Happy New Year!  Did you get any snow this past weekend?  A dusting perhaps?  I was in King William and we got a light dusting Sat afternoon, and a heavier dusting early Sunday morning!  My first flakes of the season!  Anyway does anyone know about this Sunday’s forecast for the mid-atlantic region?  The local met says 40% of rain possibly changing to snow later Sunday.  Hmmmm a little early to predict snow on Tuesday for Sunday wouldn’t you say?

    Thw winter of 2010-2011 was a great one. The total for my town was like 12 inches, which is a lot for here.
