Saw Richard's pics of my old home town.
My standard line is "we lived there 4 years..... It only seemed like a lifetime."
However in the whole time we lived there we NEVER saw snow like this!!!
In fact you could see the grass pretty well all winter long.
It was TOOOOO cold to snow.
When we lived there the major snow storms were in Late Sep and Late April.
This is a real fluke.
I suspect that they were pics from Northern Quebec
