Ok, for those how don't know, I live in SC, right in the path of the storm that is threatening to ice us up again as well as dump some sleet and possibly snow. Hoorays.

Thing you have to realize about this is that people here in SC have difficulty driving when it's dry & sunny. Add a little rain and driving anywhere becomes a possible life & death situation. And I still have to work tomorrow (20 min commute). So pray for me to the god of your choice (I could use multiple forces looking out for me, anyway).

Anyways - its my sons bday on saturday - pray for no rain too while you guys are talking to god...gods.

Yeah, here in the better half of the Carolinas it's snowing pretty steadily as we speak, and i'm off school. Yay!

Best wishes, though, Homer. I know how scary it can be down there. :D

I got out three hours early today :cool: and I had to stand in the snow with the wind for nearly 40 minutes if that just for the bus alone! :mad: Most likely, we'll be off tomorrow aswell as it's suppose to be snowing until sometime tomorrow. I just love winter though, so I'll be enjoying it aswell. :D Fun times ahead, indeed! ;)

Ah, I just went for food & it is now sleeting! Yippee...

Oh yeah, and I'm still at work, so there is the very real chance that I may be stranded here or made to stay as it is unclear whether or not our 3rd shift person will make it in and since I'm off tomorrow.... :(

Ah, the fun results of the storm:
1) The upper part of SC (or Northern South Carolina) got a vast ammount of snow (to me), 8-10" or so.
2) My area got just enough to cover the ground
3) It melted before morning
4) As I was out when it was all coming down, I got sick for my 2 days off & lost my voice entirely on Fri.

So, overall, it was a miserable time and I don't want to repeat it anytime soon.

On the upside, it has been warm the last couple of days (mid-upper 60's), so my cold has passed fairly quickly.

Ahh, sorry Homer.

I got 15-17" at my house and two days off. Bad thing is, though, that i haven't played tennis in about a week and the season is supposed to start up tomorrow and even that is questionable. Everything else about it was great. Now i want it to get warm again.

You guys are lucky, its been a temperate 70-80 degrees the past week with some sightings of clouds if you can believe such a thing.

I can't wait for the monsoon season and the 110 degree weather here, let me tell you.

I don't know, 70-80 degrees and sunny sounds great to me.

I hate you.

You seem to hate me a lot, because the day after I made that post it rained like HELL and I haven't seen the sun in 3 days. Godammit

Haha, take that...it has been sunny & amazingly warm (mid-70s) for this time of year. It will supposedly get up to the 80s tomorrow :eek:

I guess all my crappy weather went to you and all of your good weather came here. That's what you get for bragging :p
