    Yay, Montreal!!!! Sounds about right too! Yesterday I saw a busload of tourists getting out at Notre-Dame cathedral with tuques on. It was cute – if they think June weather is cold, good thing they’re not here in January. πŸ˜‰

      Let’s just say I am happy as heck that I paid for snow removal service this year. There were fewer snowfalls, but when it did snow, it was a lot at one time!

    Small potatoes! St. John’s –> 332 cm.
    Wait, why am, I proud of that? My back is still aching from shoveling snow :>(
    We had 648 cm in 2000-01. What a rotten winter!
