Winter's... odd. From my experience up here in Maine, we usually get one or two big snowstorms from late October to early December,
at which time the temperature drops dramatically. Then as you get used to it, mid January comes and starts hammering with a ton of snow,
followed by ice in February, and then slushy mush in March.
Course, some years vary from this. Two years ago, we were fine until mid-February and had our entire winter in ten days.
Last winter was odd, we had record-breaking cold late December, a warm and pleasant February, and then four (almost six) nor'easters in March.
(actually the nor'easters kept missing us so haha tri-state area.) Nothing like the Beast from the East over in Europe, but still.
I remember one year we just got snowstorm after snowstorm all January and February. A lot of people put up their homes for sale after that winter. >.>
Thus far, the year's actually going pretty much according to how I remember it. Maybe a little late for snowfall and a bit warmer, and less windy,
but this major snowstorm is a reassurance that things are back to normal. :P
edit: Forgot to mention, we actually had 8 wikipedia-worthy nor'easters in the span of a year. Usually there're only like 1-3. lol
I don't think I even remember it getting below 0°C a single time this year. Probably gonna hit us all at once in February again. Used to be we'd have reasonably cold winter with a decent amount of snow in December, now we have really mild winters and then blizzards.
Where I am, we've had the first snow yesterday and today.
While I like walking in light snowfall, when the snow underfoot is new and crisp (not sludgy), I hope it won't get too thick. I have places only accessible by public transport to go to over the next few weeks, and the whole system tends to become absolutely paralysed if there's more than a dusting of snow on the roads.
This makes me wonder if snow cyclists (bicyclists who ride bikes with super-wide tires straight through snow) have any special tricks. I have only ridden through snow once and it was barely below freezing. But I suppose you are getting more exercise if you have to deal with stiff lubricants, so good for you!
I use normal wide tires and I'm not using any studded tires either. You might slip sometimes but not too often. But yeah, some people ride those fatbikes and you can ride over hard snow in the mid or late winter as the snow gets hard (snowdrift?). I guess they are easier to ride in the winter time because there is more friction. Roads here in Finland are usually well plowed for cars and also for walkers and bikers (pun intended) in cities and where there are bigger centers of population. But of course when it's snowing hard it can be pretty annoying to try to ride your bike or in the worst case you need to walk your bike a looooong way back to home. Obviously I'm not taking my bike with me when I can see that it's going to be too hard or impossible to ride it.
But after winter summer really feels like summer. I like all 4 seasons of the year in my own way. They are all different and make you feel a bit different mentally also - Vibes and feelings.
