There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I didn't see snow until I was 23 years old.

Pics seem accurate. smile

I didn't see my first *real* snow (more than an inch accumulation) until 17, on a high school field trip to Washington DC, Feb. of '85. Some places along the way looked to me like mountains of snow, and sometimes you could hardly see as it was coming down so thick.

==========
It may have even been record breaking to that point (even in Miami)...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter_1985_cold_wave

"Miami, whose average low in late January is 59 °F (15 °C), recorded a record low of 37 °F (3 °C) on the 21st and 34 °F (1 °C) on the 22nd, both record lows for the date."
==========

What I remember is that I'd never experienced a painful cold before. Wife and I couldn't keep our hands warm enough, even with wearing gloves. On that trip we decided that we'd never live in brutally cold climate (Baton Rouge -> Atlanta -> Jacksonville -> back to BR...very little snow and painful cold).

We've been to Fairbanks in winter and it wasn't as painful as that DC trip, although we probably had better clothes, hats and gloves.

Damp cold is worse than dry cold.

No but I did have some snow inside those little plastic or glass globes that you could shake.

:smile2

The snow in the snow cone is crushed ice with flavouring added.

You should take a winter trip to Lake Placid

it's so true, but now the schools cancel on 3-4" because they can't have the kids get hurt. My oldest son is a SR at a private school and one day last week they didn't cancel when 5-6" fell. 3 kids ended up getting in accidents and came to school via the police... Next snow fall "schools canceled"..
Granted, being a private school some kids drive up to 40 mins to school. If you're North of this school that could be a good 3-4" more of snow because this school is close to the coast and there's a drastic change in temps when you get 20 mins away from the coast.

Jackman, ME
I recently moved a few hours north from Windham to a small (~800) town in northwestern Maine called Jackman, and we've gotten close to 4’ of snow so far. We’ve also had a fair number of days with highs in the single digits. I’m loving it!

Part of my trail up a hill, even with snowshoes on I was sinking to mid-calf on every step and sometimes up to my knees. I was wearing my smaller mountaineering snowshoes that don’t float quite as well as my bigger backcountry shoes, but the BC shoes don’t have nearly as much traction. As it was my mountain shoes barely had enough, I’d slide back 1/2 step every time I put weight on my leading foot.

[Linked Image]

On the descent I was letting myself slide on every step, I fell a few times and it was very hard to stop even with snowshoes plowing. The snow was so dry & powdery there was no friction. On one of my slides this happened.

[Linked Image]

I ended up having to unbuckle the straps and take my foot out to get the snowshoe off the branch. Thankfully it went between the deck and binding and not through my boot or into my leg.

I think it’s gonna be a good winter, and I can’t wait to snowshoe up a local mountain! (3459’.) Cross country, not on trails, to make it more fun LOL

It is more than just the kids getting hurt. Teachers can't get there as well maintenance staff.

Depends on how cold you're talking. I'll take 30F and wet over -40 and bone dry any day of the week.

About 10 cm here in Kuusamo, Finland now, its finally getting bit like winter.



When its really gets lots of snow (1+ meters ) and cold (-30c - -36celsius ) = nobody care, nothing special.


I like snow, better than black and wet chirsmas :P

Half inch of water from a light rain grinds everything to a halt in Miami. You'd think that drivers living in Miami would know how to drive in rainy conditions. Nope.

Ice Cold in Alex or Eating in ...
Driving round the corner on the way to pick up my girlfriend and I was faced with a 3meter deep snowdrift right across the road with a car width hole dug through the middle of it, that was an interesting drive smile

We could get anywhere up to 6meters of snow once you moved a few miles in from the coast, the gulf stream kept the coast warm and relatively snow and ice free, but once you got about 6 or 7 miles inland you could be looking at 20ft+ of snow. there is a picture of some people standing in a field of snow waving at a helicopter, what they are standing on is the roof of the train that was buried under the snow. But over all the temperatures in the far north of Scotland were not too severe compared with how far north it is, our town of Wick is as far north as Moscow or about 2/3 of the way up Hudson Bay. I have experienced lower temperatures here in Belgium (-32c) than I did at home in Wick (-26c)

I'm more used to what NH2112 posted ,,Grew up in upstate N.y. lived on a dairy farm the last 5 years,,,Then Rhode island and Connecticut..New Hampshire is rough but down along the coast it piles up and near the mountains in N.y. it sure piles up...Here they get 1/2 inch and level 1 snow warnings go out ,,and schools get delayed 1--2 hours
