We got about 5ish inches or so this past sunday. Which isn’t bad except that this area of Wisconsin is NEVER prepared for snow. The plows are always nowhere to be seen. My road still isn’t really plowed.
It’s also snowing again today.
It seems to me like no one knows how to drive in the snow. I got rear ended on Sunday, no big deal really just another dent to add to the many my car already has. I drive a beat up 94 Honda Accord with near 300,000 miles, and I have no problems driving in snow except on the absolute worst of days. But no one else seems to have any idea what they’re doing when snow falls.
I live about an hour from Syracuse. Its in the 20-30 range right now, and its been snowing pretty regularly, albeit the snow is not deep or heavy. It always surprises me when it gets really cold, since it makes me wonder how I could of tolerated it for months in the past. People must acclimate themselves to it real quickly without realizing it.
No snow here.
My little sister was really excited when we had snow her first year (she’s also from Hawaii). It was cute!
Granted, my first year I got really excited too and dragged everyone outside to make snow penguins and snow angels since I had never seen so much snow in my life, being from a desert and all.
Right now I’m not worried about the snow we finally got so much as the steady single digit temperatures for the week (not including the wind chill which brings the temp down an additional 20 degrees). And there’s more of this white death scheduled for tomorrow.
At least I can earn some dough shoveling (or snow blowing) the driveway, and I can follow that up with some hot chocolate and marshmallows.:toast:
I’ve got a couple of inches on the ground here in Buffalo, New York now. The weather people are saying there’s lot more coming this weeked…I hate snow, give me dry Vegas heat any day.
I’ll be alright as long as we don’t have another “October Suprise” like last year. Three feet of snow dumped on us in early October and knocked just about everyone’s power out for a week. That was the week from hell…after the third day I was like “OK, I’m done camping now!”
Motherfuckers didnt touch or parking lot, or our street. Fucking took me an hour to get to the end of the street yesterday. Came home, got stuck inches from my parking space, took another hour to get unstuck.
Had like, six inches of snow fall yesterday… on the day of my driving test.
Yeah, it kinda got rescheduled to the middle of January. Sucks. Oh, and real fun is deciding if you’d rather just walk through a three-foot snowbank, or backtrack five minutes to find more level ground to walk on.
So after having been awoken very early Friday morning (before sunrise) to give my driveway a blow job (or as much of one as I could afford what with the half-a-inch or so thick layer of ice beneath about three inches of snow) I turn around to find out that more snow came down since then. Of course I have no intention of blowing the driveway again thanks to the -20 to -30 degree wind chill, but at least I don’t have to go anywhere for today (tomorrow, however, is a different story).
I’ll be fucking amazed if the snow manages to find some way of disappearing between now and Thursday.
I got up early today, brushed my teeth, and got ready for work. I said, “Hot dog! I’ma gonna be early!” Actually, I didn’t say that, and if I ever did I’d probably vomit shortly afterward. But you get the drift.
So I stride outside, and promptly get a mouthful of snow. Needless to say, I was actually fifteen minutes late.
