Econintersect:  There is a great slide show at (link at end of article).  For what has been a winter unusually lacking snow in many parts of the U.S., winter has been exercising more normal patterns in other parts of the globe.  The picture below shows a ski run at Mammoth Mountain California, which normally has several feet of natural snow on January 10, open only due to machine-made snow.  (Picture is from a slide show at the Los Angeles Times, link to full show at end of article.

Another photo from the LA Times on January 10, 2012 shows snowless Tuolomne Meadows in the Yosemite high country.  The Tioga Road, closed in winter, was still open in mid-January, a most unusual happening.


However, snow in the Kashmir Valley in India prompted a snow throwing interlude shown below.
