@Lustig Andrei,
Here's Mauna Kea summit this morning (Monday), picture taken from summit of Kilauea, 4,000 ft. above sea level.

@Lustig Andrei,
You should see some of the piles of snow in Mass! Some around my house are easily over 10 feet. We had some snow, again today and may be getting more later this or the next week.

The village that got eight feet of snow in one day
Italian village has broken records after it received a dump of more than eight feet (2.56 metres) in 18 hours

A tiny village in Italy is claiming to be one of the snowiest places in the world after it was smothered under more than eight feet (2.56 metres) of snow in less than 24 hours.

An intense storm left the inhabitants of Capracotta climbing out of first floor windows onto great mounds of snow and having to get around on snowshoes and skis.
Other locals had to dig tunnels from their front doors in order to be able to leave their homes.

"It was a spectacle that took our breath away. In some parts of the village the snow was like a long white wall," he told Ansa, Italy's national news agency.
"It was tough but everybody pulled together and made sure that the old people who couldn't leave their houses had the food and medicines that they needed."

Strong winds created snow drifts up to three metres deep.
While Capracotta was worst hit by the blizzard, many other towns and villages in Molise were also affected, including Campobasso, Pescocostanzo, Pescopennataro and Vastogirardi.

Heavy snowfall also hit the neighbouring mountainous region of Abruzzo.

The snowstorm hit on March 5 and left some villages cut off from the outside world.
Schools were closed and roads closed after heavy trucks became stranded in the snow.

@Butrflynet,

[...]Two hundred fifty-six centimeters equals 100.8 inches. Yes, that's a lot for one day, but it's below the 102 inches that a ski resort in the Pyrenees reported in the same time period on Feb. 4, 2015. I personally feel there is *less* evidence for the Capracotta claim than the Pyrenees claim, it just so happens that the media (and social media) have latched on to this latest claim.
[...]
Ski resorts and mountaintops across Europe routinely get 100 inches or more snow,

Just FYI stuff. Temperature departure map for 2014:

Unfortunately for the central and eastern US, it looks like we've been hovering under a "cold bubble" for a couple of years now. It's nice in the summertime because we get beautiful warm (not too hot days), but it makes for a very tough winter.

@ehBeth,
I don't mind the cold so much as long as the wind isn't blowing. I hate the wind (unless it's a hot day in the summer) Smile

The long underwear has gotten quite the workout this year, and it shows.

@jespah,
Been a long time since exposed underwear has been a positive fashion statement.

Normally at this time of year we hear a chorus of Spring Peepers, but this year not a peep.

@Walter Hinteler,
Walter, you promised you'd have them washed, dried, ironed and delivered by this afternoon.
What am I going to wear to my zumba class if you're late?

A sign of spring ---- I found my mailbox!!!!!!

On the downside my daughter is supposed to start her high school softball games next week - with a foot and a half of snow still on the field - doubtful.

@roger,
Softballs are bright yellow so no worries with seeing the ball.


Funny - the mailman left me note saying Thank you - Joe the mailman. I think he appreciated he no longer had to deposit the mail in a bucket.
