How to Measure Snowfall

Fifth Time Around

Jacob down in sunny Florida sounded a bit worried yesterday, wondering what had happened to all the snow here in Haninge. I assured him that the winter hadn't magically disappeared (although that would have been kinda cool). But I figured that the best way to prove to you that nothing has changed was to show you that by now very familiar winter chair that I have been using to accurately measure the snow depth with this winter. If you haven't seen it before be sure to check out the slide show below. I should also say that it has been snowing quite a bit since I took this photo.

Oh nice..maybe only one more month?

Jacob said...

Well, you've convinced me! Good grief. That's ridiculous! I guess some would call it a winter paradise?

Chuck Pefley said...

Glad to see that Jacob has been convinced! LOL!! I'm not sure I could envision this a paradise, though ... I usually think in much warmer terms for that!

Great seeing the various stages of your measuring chair!

You know, I know you like to bike when the weather allows, but do you ever put on the cross country skis? That would seem like a great way to get around right now.

Oh, and Jacob........trust Steffe next time. :-)

Alas, poor chair, I knew it well.

Saretta said...

Oh my goodness! It's gone! Have you considered taking a Caribbean cruise?

Lois said...

Poor little chair! It has completely disappeared.

Couldn't you just use a ruler or tape measure?

Steffe said...

One very long month. It's supposed to get colder in the next ten days or so.

Some probably would Jacob.

I'm with you on that idea Chuck.

I'm not much of a skier. But I'm thinking about taking the bike for a test ride.

We will have a few more problems when that happens Mr. Poet!

Sounds like an idea Saretta!

Ha ha, I will try that next winter Leif.
