Wet snow and dry snow [In reply to] Can't Post

The winters around here used to be comfortably below freezing for long periods of time; those who've lived in my area for decades recall the local river freezing over so they could skate and ice-boat on it. Back then, the snow would be dry, easy to shovel, and good to pack down and drive over.

Now the temps hover around the freezing point. Ponds don't quite freeze over (we've already had one older person drown this year when he tried to skate on thin ice), and the wet snow melts, then freezes, then more wet snow falls on top of that. Which is what we're to get, tomorrow. Tongue

I agree - a heavier snowfall of dry snow is a lot easier to travel on!
