Quote, originally posted by Sputnik Â»Welcome to Canada. Two years ago, we had over 13ft of snow over the course of the winter. By the time spring arrived, my shovels were broken, none were available in store, and the hubby was using a garden shovel to carve a path through the snow on the front walk. As a result, the front sidewalk, was almost level with my garage roof. I'm SO HAPPY that this year, we haven't had a significant snowfall in weeks. Freakin' awesome. You guys can keep it down south for once. If I lived in a place where snows like this were normal, I'd own a snowblowerfrom page three of this articleQuote Â» President Barack Obama, a snow veteran from his days in Chicago, didn't have a smooth day. He walked out of the White House midmorning to find the South Lawn, his backyard, looking nearly like an untouched wilderness.First, there was a small fender bender on the White House south lawn. Then a tree branch, overcome with snow, cracked and fell on a motorcade vehicle with press inside when the president was coming back from a speech at the Democratic National Committee's winter meeting in town.Obama thanked Democrats for being "willing to brave a blizzard. Snowmageddon here in D.C."
