Since late December we have been getting snow every day - usually (right here at my house) a little bit, but sometimes inches. Most of it melts the same or next day. Some friends have a build-up of snow as nothing has melted. Yes - this is nothing much - I lived in Canada at one time and it would freeze in October and thaw in April, and the roads had high snow banks thrown up by the snowploughs.* However, in this area, snow has not been usual. Yesterday it snew mightily and the resulting inch or two lay until today when the sun melted in exposed areas.
* As I always say, sometimes the thaw would uncover a car + (dead) occupants which had slid into the ditch during a snowstorm. I always talk about exactly the same things.
