    yet (more, another...)

    I was wondering whether "yet more/another...indicates annoyance or joy?
    Also, can yet only be used with the two comperatives "more" and "another"?

    "We have yet more snow this year." ("Shoot, if only it stopped snowing", or Yeah, it's still snowing").
    Does using yet make it more emphatic than saying "We have more snow this winter" that we are happy with the snow or we do not want it?

    It could indicate annoyance or joy and is correct.
