Driving on hard packed snow can be fun if you're prepared for it.  :wndr:

Speaking of using the outside of a fridge, there's a uninsulated store room in the basement of most houses here that's probably built for that. I usually keep my pop in there during the winter lol.
Doesn't he mind..?  :mrg:

I'll get me coat...

Got 4" of snow on Friday afternoon...obviously doesn't qualify as "severe" (hardly can even be called a 'storm', though it would be more than just a 'snow shower')
Can certainty use the precipitation, every little bit is good against the drought here.

Try riding a MOTORCYCLE, during a windy day. I've done it. It was not fun.

As for our weather here in Dayton Ohio, I generally don't care to talk about the snow storms unless it's really, really bad. I hate winter, with a passion.
We got about 3 inches of snow that fell while I was at the movies with a friend. The drive home was not fun, and drifting snow at times took place
while we were on the highway, making the drive a bit tough. I... guess I can count this as severe weather...?

Try riding a motorcycle in snow. I learned to ride a bike three years before I passed my car test. During that time, it was my only transport. Riding to work at 5.30am on country lanes with a mixture of sleet, snow and ICE was even less fun  @-@

To be honest, I thought most people put away their motorcycles for the winter but I suppose if you got the right set of tires it's doable.

Well if you've got a car, then yes, but some people only have a motorcycle, like I did at the time, so it was a case of ride in the snow or not get to work, and I needed the job..!

Over on this side of the pond, 4" of snow would count as a major headline news item.!  :poof:

yeah, though imagiane that as a tail wind while riding a bike! that'd be insane!
That would be a nice tail-wind for riding a bike...but it wouldn't be insane .lol. like I say, its really not that strong of a wind gust! Try doubling it (which has happened here) now that would be insane to be out riding in!

Yep! its all about location when talking about snow :)

------------------

Snowed again today, but less than 2", deff not even something you can call a "storm" .. here .lol.
Wednesday & into the night we had freezing drizzle, again not 'severe' or even a 'storm'... but nasty stuff. Everything was coated with a very thin layer of "glass" (ie: ice).
Honestly one of the types of weather I hate most.

there are some places in the shade of roofs that haven't not been covered in snow for like 3 weeks!
To me that doesn't seem anything out of the ordinary to me .LOL.
In a 'normal' year here the backyard(north side of the house / shaded) will get covered with snow/ice, and be like that for the whole winter. (same goes for other places that are in shade, north facing slopes of mountains/hills/etc)
Spots where the sun hits, the snow will ofcourse melt.

Last night's low was -1 . with a high in the single digits today, and forecast low tonight is -5 ....
Those ofcourse are temps in F, not C.

We’ve just had 3 named storms in the UK within 4 days of each other!, that’s quite worrying!, as it’s unheard of here!
