Just about nothing here, 2/3 of the ground is bare, very unusual for Saskatoon Saskatchewan this late into winter.  Supposed to be about +45 F here on Christimas.  -40 would be much more normal.

Ground is covered here in Southern Alberta.....but very unusual for this time of year as well :)

Should be blowing, colder (-25) and lots of snow :(

Kind of like it! In the pluses all week and looks like Christmas is gonna be warm but still have a white blanket down :). That is the kind of Christmas our family likes

Got some snow fall today here in Anchorage.  It is welcome because the warming trend and the ice buildup was getting to be a little too much.  The Wagon is a champ so never an issue in snow or ice.

Looks like Seattle is going to stay above freezing for the rest of the year.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

So far we've got about 10+" of snow today in my part of Denver, other areas have gotten more.  Pepe had no problems with the snow, I was even driving along the edges of the residential streets to play in the deeper stuff - didn't slow Pepe down one bit!

You have a good memory.  Pepe is my little Kammback, and that's where the name comes from, the Lil' Mule in Romancing the Stone.  Awesome scene as he's driving away from the other bad guys in Pepe.  Who knew the drug dealer like romance novels!

Good lord did we have snow today.  I left the Eagle at home and drove around in my Super Duty today... I must say the Eagle is a better snow vehicle than the Big Ford Diesel.
