  Ten days ago, we got a spattering of rain, and I was putting up metal with no jacket on.
  This morning, -27.7C.
  Got to love the weather here.  Never a dull moment.

Ready here...never shoveled so much snow...as this last winter...up to my shoulders in my driveway and back yard..roofs shoveled off numerous times.. Snow stacked up to bottom of the windows..have a sinking feeling it's going to be a wet cold summer..but I'm holding out hope for a good one..
just do it

   That's a lot of snow.  Here, not much really.  Had to use the tractor to clear the driveway twice,
which is less than usual.  Predicted warm for the next week, so it will be all gone.  Historical says
there is usually dump of snow mid April, but it never lasts more than a couple of days.
   When yours starts to melt in earnest, you will have a lot of water to deal with. 
   Time will, as always tell the story.
