With all of this talk about snow, you'd think that it can give you teh AIDZ or something.

snow sucks, but what can you do? If I hit the lottery, yeah I'd probably move someplace warm, but I'm stuck here in NY with our NY winters for at least the next 30 years. It blows that I have to drive 80 miles a day in the slop, but it all comes full circle when I get to drive 80 miles a day in the springtime weather.

After the fog of 4 Manhattan's cleared this morning, I looked out the window to see that the environment outside had changed and deposited a little gift called snow --- and a fair amount at that. I'll take it over ice any facking day!

It is still fall. Having snow around now (or not) is lucky

As I type this, I'm looking outside and there is a pretty decent accumulation already. I think round 2 is about to begin... BRING IT ON.

Based on what people are saying, I must have got one of the higher amounts here. I got 3-4 inches of snow last night.

It's been coming down at a pretty good clip here, too...I'd guess I've got about 3-4" or so, enough for several snowmen behind the building, though the neighbor kids usually just need about 6 flakes before they're out there goin' nuts in the stuff.

Isn't round 2 supposed to dump another 5-6" or so?

Meh, it's all subjective. Of course in areas where it's more of a problem there is more done about it. It happens here every year but not the entire season. Not to mention Missouri is one of the most fiscal states in the union when it comes to taxes so our plowing/salting blows more than Brewer.

I think we ended up with about 8" here when all was said and done. That's the most snow I can remember seeing in quite some time; during the big storm last year just after Thanksgiving, I was winging my way to Florida just as it hit, so I don't know what that was like. Pity. :)

I know, I just like messing with you guys. We definitely have better snow removal here I'm sure. We can have a huge snow overnight and I'll be heading to work at 7:30 AM that same morning and most places have already been plowed and deicer is usually on all intersections.

You're lucky...every time it snows with any kind of accumulation around here, you'd think the Apocalypse had just hit. People are either driving 5 mph or 70 (no real in-between) and it seems the salt trucks never seem to time their arrival correctly (here, I'm thinking of Christmas Eve, 2002). The office that I was in at the time had a full wall of windows, and we sat and watched people come flying down the hill and going sailing off of the road all morning long.
