    It has been a mild one for us so far here in Vancouver. It's 12 degrees celcius today. Not that i'm complaining, i saw enough snow yesterday at the top of Coqahaulla highway on or way home from gf's grandparents. I'm quite liking the warmer winter:).

    Well, by Christmas it finally started snowing normally... It did rain yesterday but it froze now.

    Still January and February to go though, still a lot to come (or not ?)

    Awful... The little snow we had is gone already due to the warm weather, and the winter rally season haven't even started yet :(

    Oh well, the weather here has been just as Roy says (btw, didn't you "go to bed" over a hour ago m8?). Today, 100km from where they are going to drive in Rally Sweden there has been heavy rain, and it's only 5-6cm snow left. But it is ice everywhere. It's so icy that it is hard to drive a car on a flat road.

    If I look away from the ice, it's been just as I want it. I hate cold weather and I hate snow!

    Absolutely no snow, it never snows here. I've only seen snow once in my life and it was because i was in the north. Winter weather here is like summer with damn cold temperatures.

    Too hot for the time of the year here. Average of 6-8 degrees Celsius. We expected the Terror Winter of Death but so far it looks more than the Fall :)

    Still a few months to go, so I hope for lots of snow :)

    Switching between snow and rain all the time here. The roads have been very icy and I've been driving sideways most of the time. Good times:D

    Been driving on my winter tyres since a while, but everytime i wonder why i changed them :D As Bram says, it's about 6-8 degrees celcius over here. Nevertheless, it was almost 12 degrees last weekend, so it's warm for the time of the year.

    Funny thing is that they predicted the Super Winter of Death but they are all wrong again :)
