Round here the snow has stayed as perfect powder since it fell on Tuesday - it's been so cold. Not good for snowballs as it doesn't cling, but lovely to kick up in great clouds. Yesterday it took three kettles of boiling water to unfreeze the chickens' drink dispenser.
This morning it feels positively tropical - only half a kettle needed for unfreezing, and walking the dog you could feel the snow compressing under the feet. It must be only around freezing or possibly a tad above.
