Must be another sign of that 'Global Warming' we keep hearing so much about.

We're on our way to a record December. Last year we had 11 inches of snow, we've already got 14 inches.

Whoohoo!

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Have fun with that.

I'm spending my anniversary on a beach under palm trees this weekend...about an hour away from my house. :D

I want some snow here. Please. Just a bit. Well, maybe a lot. Then I can stay at home in the warm instead of going to work. Please Snow. Pretty Please. I love snow.

Strange weather for central Texas too! Night before last it rained, then sleeted, then hailed, and then snowed. Snow never piles up, but it was a beautiful morning blanketed in a 1/2 inch or less of snow :)

Very unusual!

You do that. I'll be sledding and having snowball fights.

And I don't need to travel an hour to do it.

It's 62 degrees and raining in north Georgia.

Pooh.

Isn't that a song? Another rainy night in Georgia?

No, that's the night the lights went out in Georgia.

I love a rainy night. I love to hear the thunder, watch the lightning as it lights up the sky. Ya know, it makes me feel good.

anyhoo--
rainy and in the mid-40s in Jersey. I saw the snow in Louisiana on the news this morning - enjoy while it lasts

BTW: Climate change can also involve extremes in temperature and weather

Cry me a river--I have 1/4" of ice on my car.

Oh that's right--you can't. THE RIVER IS FROZEN.

LMAO. There's my snicker for the day.

Everyone's making me jealous with the snow talk. Colombo has summer all year round. How miserable.:cry:

Try living in Scotland. Brass bloody monkeys, it is.

We keep getting snowfall and the only thing to equal it is the rain a few days later which washes it away.

Geez, I'm in New England, and it's only snowed once! And then rain (in disconcertingly balmy weather) washed it away!

I love snow; I can't wait for the "schools shut down" type of snowfall.

Damn global warming.

Shut up. I had to unfreeze my car door before I could leave work last night. :(

It's not even mid-December, and we've already had one of those days up here in Ontario. I pretty much lost a job last year because I had to take so many snow days to take care of my son while he was home from school.

Ice belongs in a highball glass, not on the streets or my driveway. :)

Which is to say: Snow would be fantastic (I actually love winter) if it didn't fall on the roads, driveways and cars.

Amen, brother! And not on the trees or power lines, either...

I guess that's why they have different climate zones to accomodate all the different people in the world.

I'm just outside Sheffield in the UK and we've had snow on the ground for nearly two weeks now.

I hate it.

That is all.

Very unusual!It is very unusual, in a good way. There might have been a little more than 1/2 inch here, like up to 3/4 of an inch.

My friend threw a snowball at me, and I saw 3 snowmen. Good times!

Anyone who wants it can have my snow. We've been blanketed since before Thanksgiving.

And we've come close to snow days, but not close enough. (As a teacher, I can't tell you how much I love getting to stay home and get paid for it... snow days are the ONLY time that happens! I want a snow day right now worse than my students I think. =)

I like snow when I can enjoy it out the window. I don't mind it on the roads so long as it's not all icky and slushy (which is worse than just snow). Though, I hate 90% of other drivers who can't be bothered to slow down when it snows. Icy roads, though, suck. Brushing and scraping snow, frost, and ice off the car also sucks. A lot.

A little bit of snow once every 5-10 years, priceless. :D
