I live in a part of the world that gets little or no snow for years at a time. We got 2-4 inches today, its going down into the low teens tonight and tomorrow. Everything is closed! Schools,government, business everything.
It will be back in the 50's by Monday....time to move back to the islands.

Well, just to let you all know, it's going to be in the teens tonight and the wind chill will bring the temperatures lower in some places. This is Orlando, FLORIDA! I really do miss the snow, though.

I've never been snowed in in my life.
If the storm is over 3 feet I might not get out until afternoon, but thats only because I don't hurry.
We've got probably 18 solid inches on the ground right now, good igloo snow, just got a dusting this afternoon to make it pretty again.
Its danged cold, but the diesel car gets plugged in at night. I just found out that the block heater is only 400 watts so now I'll buy a timer so I don't have to go out and plug the danged thing in in the morning.

There's really no such thing as snowed in around here (mountains of NH). Couple winters ago we had a storm of over 30". It took a while to deal with but what's the pernt of shutting everything down? Unless you're an invalid or something, you have no excuse.

Been a strange year for snow around here.

Friends in the central part of Vermont have snow up to their armpits.

I've got maybe six inches in the field up here about ten miles from the Canadian border.

Went to Montreal last weekend, the farther north ya go the less snow ya see.

It sure is cold though...

Expecting the January thaw this weekend...might hit +15.

Don't feel bad. The same thing happens here on the Shore. 2" will shut everything down. Did it last Thursday. Right now we've only got the cold. 20 and blowing about 25. Lows in the single digits tonight, wind still supposed to blow. I'd rather have the snow...

No new snow but not even close to a degree today -- our illustrious Mn gubmint has decreed that ALL tar roads will be plowed down to the road within 24 hours after a storm. Pretty snazzy - course it snowed those years and the state wasn't that many trillions in debt when they voted on that so now the plow gangs just report to work & play cards around the heaters all winter .. is paying people NOT to be productive brighter than unemployment? :)

Snow???
I haven't hardly even seen any since I came down here to Colorado. Had a thick soft frost last night though, today it is in the sixties.
Back home in BC they got a foot of fun over night. I sure miss it. But I don't suppose it would be the same here as the snow we get in BC.

Cowgirlj,

Where in Colorado are you? I live in Larkspur, CO. Between Denver and Colorado Springs. In normal years, we should get about 60" of snow. Last winter, I bet we didn't have 20" and so far this winter, we haven't had enough to plow yet. Just hope we get above average snowfall in February, March, and April!

Danny

Hey Danny
I am in Falcon, very close to where you are. I have been told that this isn't normal weather for the area, makes one kind of worry doesn't it? Back in BC the dump they had only lasted one day, not typical weather for there either.
If I had a horse here, I would be out taking advantage of the sunshine.
Cheers
j

No snow here. But might as well be. Got a COLD wind at 25mph.

Here in Plymouth, Ma we have had only a dusting of snow all winter. Ground is about bare. I had to plow once so far (actually I wanted to play with the tractor as there was no real need). I understand that 20 miles inland there are many, many inches on the ground. Go figure.

It's a little after 1 PM and it's 10 degrees at Plymouth Rock.

2-4?

I don't even plow the yard for that piddly amount LOL...Even the town only sands the roads till it gets to 3"...

Here in Corinth MS got only about 1-2 inches but you would think it was 18 inches the way people drive here. We don't get much snow. I lived in Maryland when I was in the Navy back in 88, thats the year the whole eastern seaboard got all that snow along I-95. Yea I was driving in it trying to get to Jacksonville FL to visit the in-laws. 12 hour trip turned into 24. Snowed the following year down here in MS pretty good, saw pictures as I was on Guam then. Got cold one night on Guam all the way down to 74 degrees.

Hi, I live in Townsend, Tenn. 2" snow and breezy. 12:20p, 17 or 18 degrees. Chill factor is awful. I'm warm, horses fed, truck starts. Not bad. Later


Scott Hansen    Posted 01-23-2003 at 09:24:01       [Reply]  [Send Email]
2-4 inches!!!! HA! We usually get snowed in when it gets over 18". This year, we have had one snowstorm. 50 degrees here today. We are worried about water.

Not snowed in,but we are really in the ddp freeze today. Nothing closes around here when it snows or gets cold. You just need to be careful.

Not snowed in, got dumped on Christmas and once after that but it is cold been single digits or below for almost two weeks now and we've been getting maybe an inch a day It is unusual for it not to warm up enough to melt most of it off inbetween storms.
