    I would not say 'dependent' -- just one on the many factors.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Just outside of NYC (about 20 miles north of Times Square), it's snowing again. We now have about two solid (frozen) feet of snow laying around; streets are very narrow and intersections are blind. Supposed to warm up after this so that it all can slide off the roofs and we can flood.

    As they used to say upstate, "another ten inches of flurries..".

    Yes. But I'll save myself some typing, this guy says it far better anyway: http://news.psu.edu/story/141165/200...manac-accurate

    The Farmers' Almanac's Web site explains that its forecaster (referred to only by his pseudonym, Caleb Weatherbee) uses a "top secret mathematical and astronomical formula, that relies on sunspot activity, tidal action, planetary position and many other factors" to predict weather sixteen months in advance for seven different U.S. climate zones.

    Sounds interesting and I use a similar formula to decide when to work in my darkroom.

    Can you believe this?--a week ago we had a foot and a half of snow, and now it's 75 degrees.

    I'd believe it given what we've had: 3 weeks above 40C, then 4months rainfall in 2 days, now a week of drizzling low 20s.
    If our weather's stuffed then so can yours...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    It's a nice sunny winter day and fairly mild here and although we have had a very wet winter so far and there has been terrible and massive flooding in some parts of the U.K. mainly in the south of the country.We have had no snow yet and I'm keeping my fingers crossed because if we don't have any in the next six weeks or so we've got away with it and it's the spring

    It's actually raining! Just started.
    It took me a bit to remember what that sound was...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    it's been very mild in the Norther U.K for the last few days with a decent amount of sunshine almost like Spring,although it's been the wettest Winter in Britain on record and there have been massive floods in some areas, but very little snow so far.
