    I understand that there are still issues in Australia, fires, and flooding. A very different situation on Canada's east coast. They have been dumped on with snow. Our niece in Newfoundland has snow halfway up her front door, will post a picture of that soon. In some areas on the east coast they have had up to 36" (93cm) of snow. I bet that TW and others in Colorado get snow like this sometimes too. This should sum it up for you.

    Haha. That's when I hit the garage door button and go back inside.

    Holy crap: Is that a snow blower sat looking at it? Must be thinking "umm; little help here please..."

    We get ankle deep snow here and the transport network is in chaos; that much would be an existential crisis for most of us!

    We don't get that kind of snow down here on the Colorado flatland but up in the mountains.... I have a friend who woke up one morning, opened his front door and could see nothing but blue, we had gotten 8 feet of snow in two days (2003, I think, Thunderwagn, cross-check me on that one).

    Bloody hell that's snow is! Lol
    My God when that melts its gunna be slippery.
    Yep I see a heap of Canadians have come across to Aus to help fight the bushfires I think they got a bit of a shock with how intense the fires are here. Sorta like how intense the snow is over there.

    Never seen nothing like it!

    We get some rather rough fires from time to time here in Colorado but nothing like what we've been seeing from down there. I hope the recent rains have been kind to you.
