It's snowing! :)

146 posts in this topic

Living in Florida for so many years has made me really appreciate being able to live in a climate now that lets it snow. I know it's probably stale for some of you, but I love looking out my kitchen window and seeing it come down! :) The only thing I have to get out for tonight is Midnight Mass, so let the snow fall! :)

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]We've got nothing here. No rain. No snow. Even the snow we just got has already melted away.[/i][/font]

It will probably all melt tomorrow and Wednesday with the rain, but it's fun to look at on the ground! My husband works at 1:00 tomorrow afternoon though, and I don't want to think of him driving through it to get to the hospital. :( He's been a Southern driver for too many years now, so driving on snow is questionable for him.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Yeeeah... we're under a Winter Weather Alert.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]So, looks like Euclid's hammering of the southeast will only be bested by his big brother getting ready to make landfall on the west coast. Hopefully that one rips across the country as fast as Euclid did.. or will for the next 36 hours.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Another surprise Christmas party just popped up on my radar this morning... looks like I'm headed your way again. :P[/i][/font]

Nope...we're under a winter weather warning now.

I'm packing a bag of spare clothing and toiletries just in case I have to crash at the truck stop tonight.

Also throwing a cold weather sleeping bag and a snow shovel in the car.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Seriously... from a long-time Indiana native... don't go crazy. I think the grocery stores and news are in it together. People hear snow, and you can't find bread, milk, toilet paper or water in any store. It's actually quite funny after awhile.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Sleeping bag & shovel are good. If you can get some kitty litter or salt in the trunk, do that too in case you get stuck in the ice. ;)[/i][/font]

My fiance commented on my nervousness earlier. "You're from Pennsylvania. You should be used to this." My response? "I can drive fine in snow...but consider that, in PA, I didn't have to drive 18 miles a day to get back and forth from work!"

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]If you're driving the interstate, and I'm assuming you are, just stay in the right-hand lane and you'll be all right. Semi's do a wonderful job of breaking up the snow & ice. ;)[/i][/font]

I want to go to INdiana just to hear what all the fuss is about!

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]*LOL* It's really nothing. East Coasters should have no problem driving in this stuff. The NORTH Midwest... now that... that I would be worried about. Lake Effect Snow sucks. I've seen homes completely buried in a matter of hours, all you see is steam and smoke coming out of the chimney.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Shovel? Who uses a shovel? Put the car in reverse and slam the gas until you hit the street. :D

Stupid YouTube... still waiting on that video to finish uploading. It's only 40 seconds and it's taken almost two hours to upload. :P[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Even with a blizzard like this, we still say it. We had a co-worker, a real Mr.-Know-It-All and when there was a big snow storm back 2010, he said "It's not going to stick."[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]So, whether it's 20-feet or 2-inches... "It's not going to stick."[/i][/font]

They rarely closed schools either, at least that I remember. We lived in Hamilton, OH, for a few of my childhood years, and I can't remember too many snow days. They definitely know how to handle snow in the Mid-West, you're correct! :)
