There's a large winter storm sweeping cross country (US). The snow just gave me a three day weekend from school! ^_^. Anyone else lucky?

Unfortunately we only got an inch by this morning, of course its supposed to snow all day.

We only have 4 or 5 inches here, but it's covering a thick sheet of ice, so the buses couldn't go anywhere.

I know your pain, Bongo. I was deprived of snow when I was a child, living in the tropics and all :D

I still remember the first time I saw snow :)

Seattle got it first. I got 2 days off, but it was Tuesday and Wednesday, still kick-ass, though. :D

I still remember the first time I saw snow :)I used to live in the California desert and we got like 5 inches of snow once in like '96. Probably blame El Nino for that.

When Mount Pinatubo erupted there was so much ash our entire neighborhood was covered inches deep in it.

My sister thought it was snow ^_^

Just to give you guys a good idea of just how much ash there was....

No.

There was a chance we would get snow but it didn't happen, it just rained a lot. All the trees had ice on them.

Which part of Michigan do you live in? The UP? Because I don't think the storm is reaching up there.

We got about a foot and a half of snow here...though it's up to the professors whether or not they cancel class...

'Course, my schedule as-is I have 4 day weekends every week :D

It was a snow day for the Jimbo/Jae household--too dangerous to even drive anywhere in the middle of blizzard conditions, though it's now finally calming down.

We got about 2-4 feet of snow this past week, at least and school still had no chance of being cancelled. And it was -42 F/-41 C last week and we still had to go to school. That's for living in Edmonton, Canada. >_>

Since I live in Houston, and am in college, even if we got any snow (highly unlikely), it would only be a tiny amount, so I would still have to go.

Nope, had to go to school today. Wish it would have snowed so I could spend more time studying for the SAT.

Yay last minute cramming.

That damned storm just missed us with snow, too. Accursed Tennessee. :p

I get a 3 day weekend too. But its just a PD day (A day of prayer where the unfortunate teachers have to go and sit around, do useless things like pray and such) Students have no school. Its just about the one time I appreciate being in a catholic school. Oh, and school mass days too. I just go downtown for the day on those days.

Whiner. Wanna trade homes? I freaking HATE snow! All I did was shovel today, and answer calls from work, who DESPITE the weather advisory AND cancellations, was busier than thou. And to make matters worse, after FINALLY clearing all the wet heavy snow off the driveway, the freaking snow plow has blocked the drive way in...again. So now I get to get up early and shovel again...

I got only a few minutes on Gears of War, and jebbers spanked me pretty hard...

I'm not in a very good mood right now at all. :mad:

I will further Groovy's rant against Tyrion's whining by stating that I know people who have been to both California and Houston, and have said that Houston is about a thousand times worse.

Once you live in Southern California, trying to accept anything less than a world made of silver platters is quite a grotesque thought.

Or something like that, anyway. What do I know, the heat's already has burnt out all those brain-think thingies away.

(By the way IG, I think the problem with Houston is less the absurd heat and more the stereotypical amount of rednecks that swarm the area like a locust hoard. It's like a House of the Dead movie, only it's illegal to shoot them in the head.)

I'm wondering if Ontario is going to have a cold winter or not. Where I live the winters lately have actually been pretty warm. It'd snow a ton one day and then melt/turn to ice the next. Winters in Ontario arent very good :/ (and pretty dangerous for driving sometimes. and I drive now occasionally. and I'll probably be taking my second drivers test in the winter on ice.)

No snow in the UK, we have had flooding. We won't get snow before new year, probably not before march.
