Who else is getting snowed in right now?

    They have already cancelled school for tomorrow, and that is unusual.  Normally they wait until 6 AM to make that decision.

    So... this is our fourth or fifth snowfall since Thanksgiving, and it's not even winter yet.  Seems like the good old days.  I remember one year when we had an ice storm at the end of October.

    Our last snow (last weekend) hadn't quite finished melting before this one arrived, and they say it's going to be a doozy.

    How's the weather where you are?

      Yup.  Snowed in here in Indy.   Well, I am.  haha.  But my husband went to work as usual.  Not a pleasant drive;  roads still snow-covered and it's still snowing a little....
      Snow is one of those things that's beautiful but nasty at the same time.

    There's a lot of snow here. In the city it's not so bad, though, except that every time it melts the River gets higher. Looks dangerously close to flooding.

    Is it close to flooding because the ground is cold and won't absorb the melted snow very well - or has the water table risen the way it did here a few years back?

      When the snow melts, it runs into the river, which obviously causes the water table to rise.
      I was working on one of the ships a few days ago, and the water was already over the banks in some parts.

    It was 77 degrees earlier when I looked.  No snow for us in central Texas.

    In South Texas we are in that wonderful time of year when we often do not need heat or AC.

    Soooo, is Texas as great as it sounds???  'Cause no snow, no heat, and 77 degrees sounds awfully good to me, stuck here in Ohio, with blowing snow and 20 degree weather... lol

      I'd say about 5 months of the year, the weather is incredibly mild, and the utility bills are low.  The summer is long and hot, but in San Antonio the humidity is relatively low year round.  The summers are much more tolerable than places like Houston, or the east coast states.

      Well, you could always come up here to Ohio, and join the Polar Bear Club...this is their favorite time of year to take a dip in the water... lol

        Well tam cor, I bet that now in OHIO, Texas it will be just 6 degree celcius and 43 degree fahrenheit! I know it because i checked it on the weather channel...

          43 degrees? That or your Florida winter weather sounds wonderful! lol

          I just checked again--here it's a balmy 19 degrees--in the midwest part of the state...like I said, perfect weather for the Polar Bear guys--but NOT for me! big_smile

      Its raining at the moment here in Hertfordshire but you can feel the temperature dropping away and the snow is due over the weekend.

      It will be interesting to see how many of us actually get to where we are supposed to be at Christmas - snow and rail strikes do not make me feel optimistic!

    we don't get snow here, right now waiting for the sun to come up so I can see whether there's frost on the meadow or not.

    We had our storm earlier this week.  Have fun digging out, and keep that baby (and yourself) warm.  smile
