    It's the first time it snowed here this year and the first time I've ever lived where snows.

    Hate to hear that:eek1: Better get used to it way up there in Wisconsin.We only get about 2 real good snowfalls here in southwestern Ohio.I would much rather have the snow than the ice though.We get alot of sleet here.It still cracks me up though to see the "yuppies" in their SUVs that think they can walk on water then end up off the road or worse yet on their top.:haha:

    My mom got off the phone with my grandpa a little while ago and they were talking about it. So I thought that I would bring it up to you other Michiganders. The snow this early in the season makes me glad that I don't live out there anymore.

    I think the one thing I missed during high school out here were the fog delays. Those were nice except that I had already gotten up at 7 or so. I miss having a white Christmas and Thanksgiving though.

    Glad I'm not...

    In BUFFALO NY!!..they got TWO FEET of snow yesterday!:eek1: ..

    The "Farmers Almanac" predicted a "Wetter and colder than normal" winter for the northeast...completely opposite of the National Weather Service's long range forcast,that predicts a warmer than usual winter for much of the USA..

    I'm betting the Farmer's Almanac will win out..though I'd rather see warmer temps and little or no snow,like last winter...I HATE winter too--its six months of your life WASTED...
    (litterally!--nothing else to do but get wasted!):doah: ..:(
