It's snowing it's butt off here. I know there are a lot of members around the Southeast part of the U.S. so if don't have snow yet, you will.

It's been snowing since about 6 p.m. and there is about an inch or so on the ground. They are predicting about 4 to 6 inches before it's done.

Last winter, when it was warmer in Alaska that it was here, on of my nieces in Alaska posted this little ditty on her Facebook page. The tune, I believe, is "Springtime in the Rockies".

When it's winter in Wasilla, and the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour, twenty-five below,
When it's winter in Alaska,and the snow's up to your butt,
You take a big ddep breath, and your nose just freezes shut.
Oh, it's lovely here in Alaska, I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave Alaska, 'cause I'm frozen to the ground!

I changed the words slightly, and called it "Winter on the prairie", for Iowa and Nebraska and Kansas and. . .

I heard that part of Tenn had around a foot of snow. We've had snow twice in the past week and now have over two feet on the ground and it's only 2f degrees outside this morning! I absolutely hate winter.

We have had snow on the ground since before Thanksgiving, but not nearly as much as usual. It has been extremely cold though. I dont mind the snow, dont mind the shoveling, dont even mind the cold, but man when that wind kicks up...that is painful. However by Feb I am looking forward to spring again lol. 3 months of snow is enough grin

Here in Erie PA,the snow comes off the lake until it freezes over.Unfortunately, it hasn't frozen over YET! It makes the roads snotty to drive on,and worse yet, it's supposed to warm up tomorrow night just enough to get freezing rain. YUCK!!!

"Offically", we got 9 1/2 inches here in Huntsville but it was only about 8 inches in our immediate area. Had me very concerned because roofs of the outdoor avaries were constructed to support the more typical 1-2 inches of snow that we see around here. Fortunately, nothing more serious then a couple of bowed ceiling rafters.

The birds were all indoors, of course.

We got snow too! At least 3-4 inches and we're supposed to get more Sunday night. Love it!


I gave up the best thing that ever happened to me.

We got an additional 8 inches today on top of the already two feet sitting out there that didn't melt during the rain the other day and now they are saying we may get a Nor'easter Tuesday night into Wednesday. All of you that love the snow so much are more than welcome to come to my house on Wednesday to help move the snow. The snowblower is broken down and the banks now on the driveway are over four feet. There's no where to put the crap!!! I'll make hot chocolate for anyone that shows up! I'll even spike it if you want!
My back is killing me from shoveling! LOL

Nancy -- that sounds awful! I didn't realize that you had 2 feet already -- there was only about 4 inches near the airport, so I thought my flight had been canceled out of Boston prematurely. So glad I was able to get out and not stuck there even longer.

Get a massage!

That storm we got 18 inches here. Boston always get a little less being on the water. We've been getting one storm after the other for the past three weeks. We were hoping that the rain storm that we got last weekend would have gotten rid of more snow than it did, but it started out snow and then turned to rain overnight. All it did was compact the snow. Logan is backed up again today!

I am so tired of the stinkin snow! I am flying solo at work because my coworker just broke her wrist, and my son had a snow day so I had to take him too, and my ABS brakes are out atm, so the stinkin snow was an adventure to drive in this morning!
There is no place for them to put the snow! The lawn has about 2.5 feet covering it, and there are mountains all over the place from the plows. *sigh* I guess thats what you get when you move to New England.... Darn MA!!

I'm a native New Englander and have always hated winter, even as a child. You moved right into the snow belt in MA! I lived in Worcester years back and the weather there was incredible year round between snow and tornados!! We're not suppose to get as much as you but this year we seem to be getting it all in the Boston to Providence Corridor.

I know it stinks! I lived in Worcester two years ago and Oxford last year It was WAY worse there, however this year we've just got more snow...
I am a native Coloradoan, so Im not new to snow, but it melts a few days later out there! Ive been here for the past 5.5 years, I am not a fan of the GINORMOUS amount of snow! hehe My son loves it tho!

Been there, understand and am glad I don't need to drive in it or shovel it anymore. You have my sincere condolences. As much as I loved Pittsburgh, I really have been glad about the weather in FL. Wish I could help...
