Last winter we didn't have any measurable snow, where's Al Gore when you really need some Global Warming!
Didn't the Polar Ice Caps go bye-bye in 2013... Oh! WHAT! They are still there!
I know the snow you are talking about... grew up in Vermont ...so not an issue at all for me. But, the folks down here have a time of it... I've been running around to the neighbors capping off their busted pipes. I had two go where the pipes are outdoors... they didn't burst ...but, like an idiot I used sharkbites and they separated. I'll be sweating in the new fittings tomorrow or Sunday.
