Now to you Northernors (and those around the globe that have mucho snow!)...even those in Dallas (PDH). That may be no big deal...but down here...especially this early (Dec. 4)...our winter is barely starting! The drivers will freak...the ground is soppin' wet...(so mucho ice!)...and our pipes don't like freezin' weather for long durations...like the freeze thats coming! The snow isn't sticking yet...but it is a flurry out there...and the temps dropping.
Waitin on it in Roundtown, believe it when I see it!
Wish I was there - I am a winter person and we are just going into our summer. I envy you
Envy? You have never seen Texans drive in this kind of weather. Its probably safer in Afghanistan!
As a displaced Montanan living in southeastern Arizona, I have to say: Tex got it right! We got snow on the 23rd, business and schools all shut down. No kidding. The amount never exceeded one half inch and was gone by 11 a.m. Didn't matter!
Me...I'm a summer person. I've done snow. it is beautiful...and the kids will have a ball (Great for them!)...But...I prefer to go visit the snow...myself...it is better in its natural place...the Mountains! Where you can ski on it! This town just lost it...just from them hearing the word snow!
I just won't drive for a few months. Stay indoors with a nice cuppa or a glass of red wine. Thick homemade vegetable soup.
Your snow storm (or its cousin) are apparently making its way to Massachusetts for tonight. I'm not too thrilled about it either. We had almost 70 degrees the day before yesterday. I was thrilled about that. Yesterday we had a beautiful, sunny, day (which I was happy about) but it was cold (which I wasn't at all happy about). Now - snow!!! I've been dragging my bloody, giant, hanging begonia plants and geraniums in and out of the house each night since October. I'm considering doing euthanasia on them, and giving up on trying to hang onto the illusion of decent weather. I'm sick of it.
That's funny...I'm in Canada and we haven't had any accumulation of snow yet
I know Lisa, I just got out the snow shovel, window scrapers, rock salt and all the other winter stuff. Most of the Cape should get rain, but I live near the Cape Cod Canal at the beginnning, and we often get snow with the rest of you.
Don't get rid of the begonias. There so beautiful. But I know the feeling, I finished getting the garden ready for winter too yesterday.
Well lets put it this way... whatever snow comes down in your neck of the woods I here in Canada do not have to shovel. I live in the country and somehow the wind seems to drag every bit of snow from snowpiles around and depositing them right into my drive way. So for once I rejoice in other having all the pleasures and me missing out. (sorry) Is it spring yet?
We just had a white Christmas after blizzard last weekend. We accumulated 2 feet of snow.
How long does snow last when it happens there?
Here in Canada, snow lasts all Winter, which is awful.
We have the Snowy Mountains in Australia and it is a very popular place to go for the skiing, which I can't do anymore.
Another place to go would be Thredbo, great snow country there too. I haven't been to Canada or even America, but I would love to go there one day just to see what the snow is like there and I don't know if I ever will, but it does look wonderful over there with all the snow covering everything.Texas must be pretty cold at the moment, Laura's soup sounds like a good idea to me., for all you very cold texans. Keep warm till next time guys BB

Okay, so after we enable someone to do something, the ENABLE them to bring it to the forefront, find out we all have just be duped, and then ENABLE them to makes us look stupid for believing in them....And, then What? They are enabled, once again by closing their threads to reply? ...

This is merely an attempt to divert attention away from the negativity concerning the Amazon.com in California debacle.My Stats are back, traffic sources, keywords, all of it. I'm very happy about this. Of course I'm also happy that Texas and Amazon.com. . . .are trying to work things...

I normally don't comment on the weather because, having lived in Wyoming my entire life, I'm used to it doing some pretty crazy things. However, at the moment I'm on foot, so when the temperature took a dive from 30 degrees and stayed in the -5 to -20 range for the last couple of weeks I noticed it...

How does the winter make you feel?For myself the winter offers a sense of calmness. I love the cold and the snow!!! I always feel that is seems more quiet and peaceful when there is snow on the ground. I would take winter over summer always!!!!
