London Ontario (where I"m originally from) is getting absolutely POUNDED with snow. For three days just non stop snow and they've gotta have over 4 feet now.

I don't know if they've actually declared a state of emergency or not but they took the buses off the road, the mail is not going out and they've asked businesses to close today so no one will be on the roads so they can try to get them cleaned up.

this is a photo from the weather channels facebook page

The strangest thing is... if you drive half an hour in any direction there is little to no snow. My mom lives an hour away and they don't even have a dusting or anything. It's crazy

When I saw the title of the thread, I thought it was about England! :p

Snow, snow, stay away - from my house anyway. We had enough last year, right Tanya?? :D

Wow!:eek: I can't even imagine! Most I remember was maybe up to 2 feet of snow and that's not common where I live.

:eek::eek::eek:: WOAH! That's WAY too much for me. Goodness. Does that mean you're trapped in the house? I remember when we had a blizzard here in OH - stuck in the house for two days because it was just too hard to get around.

Rachel, don't know if you thought I had 2 ft of snow, we're at about 7-8 inches right now.:cool: I remember some of the blizzards. We sure had 2-3 ft of snow then!!!:eek: You don't live too far from me.;)

The weather guys on Detroit's Channel 4 TV were talking about that on Monday. They said it was already something like 53 (or maybe 57?) inches deep! They even showed pictures a considerate (and probably stranded at home) viewer in London had sent in.

Yeah my dad said they've got 140 cm and that's about 55 inches so that's about right

and they are supposed to get another 35 cm tonight (another foot) and then possibly MORE on the weekend.

Actually, London, England has snow, too, and frigid temps. My friend Clare got her car stuck and she also slid on the ice. She doesn't know how to deal w/that stuff. I told her to come to Ohio for lessons. ;)

I know, but... where I live, I'm not getting slammed by the snow. We barely have what, 2-3 inches, if that. Seriously. It's nuts. If I drive 1/2 hour east, plenty of it!

Gary is in Hamilton.. about 80 miles from London.

Hopefully not getting all snowed in like that!

As far as I know Hamilton didn't get more than a
Dusting if anything at all

Oh good grief! That should be fun - not! I expect we will be getting power outages to go with it all too:(
