First real snow storm of the winter coming on Tuesday. 25-35cm. Will have to wait and see. All other storms they said we were getting never really happened. Hope fully this goes away too. Noel

Hi Noel. Yeh, it's been strange this winter. I see Env. Canada is finally giving snow amounts for this one. It's kind of frustrating that they now wait until like 24hrs before a storm to tell you the amounts when the weather network has them many days in advance of a storm. As usual, we are forecast to get possible freezing rain and rain with 15-25cm of snow. Here on the Atlantic coast of NS we always seem to be on that freeze/thaw line. I see it's good and cold this morning. I hope the ground has time to freeze solid before this mess gets here because yesterday it was so soft it would be impossible to plow snow without digging into the driveway. At least I won't have to drive in it tomorrow. Halifax is a real treat in a snow storm. It's a peninsula, at sea level and there are no routes out of town that don't involve big hills. So huge traffic jams are common on storm days during the commute home.

I've seen picture where they use front end loaders into dump trucks then dump it  the river .  At one time in Allentown Pa  they had some kind of machine that ran on fuel oil to melt the snow, can't remember if it was towed or self-propelled  , that was back when fuel oil was dirt cheap .

This morning we had 5" at home, then I drove down towards Fairmont, wv and the further south I went, less, less, less, no snow, rain.  It was weird.
