We have had snow on the ground here in South Central British Columbia, at 700 meters elevation, for about a month. The fist time in decades that snow lasted more then a week. The accumulation is forcast  for clear skies and at this writing there are heavy skies with moderately low ceiling.
This gives a feeling of normal to local long timers.
