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

Ruinenlust wrote:It looks like we're going to finally get a real winter storm today and tomorrow across much of the Northeastern US. The snow comes so late these years. Once they get going, we usually get a lot of snow, but sometimes winter doesn't really begin until January or February, it seems.

here is summer :cry:

I don't think I even remember it getting below 0C 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.

Thats basically the weather in Toronto and southern Ontario. (I find March the worst)

Hi all! Hope you're all having a wonderful day ^^

Love and Nature wrote:Winter is nice, for walking. Riding a bicycle below -15 - -20 celsius is already kinda hard (just did that and got that blood taste in my mouth = sh1tty condition and not enough sleep) but below -20 C bike is kinda sluggish because grease and oil tend to get stiff in those temperatures and when it's -30 C you prefer not to ride a your bike at all. After winter (0-30 C) cycling feels so easy and nice, fast! But living in a city, so I ride all year around. Free, ecofriendly, burning my fat and getting exercise = so some you win some you lose.

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!

Winter is nice, and is better when I'm home in the second coldest city in the Lower 48 (the 1st is about 100 miles North) :P

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.
