    Okay, the snow was pretty but now it's COLD here and I want to move to a warmer state. I say that every year but someday I'm going to do it.

    Two more kids to get thru high school and on to college and I'm going to talk DH into moving to a warmer place like FLA, Calif, any suggestions? Bahamas..lol.

    I want a "low" cost of living state that is warm all year round.

    Leslie, I'm still here in Ohio, dreaming about being in the sunshine somewhere else though !

    The Salt trucks have been out all day and that makes me wonder what is in store for us ! Earlier in the month we also had temps into the 70's. I can live with that...lol.

    My husband is in Michigan today and he called to say that there were quite a few accidents on the slippery roads he was traveling on.. yikes !

    Good luck to you in Indiana ! Ft. Wayne was great yesterday, just cold, didn't notice any snow.

    We lived in Seattle for 4 years and only got one day of snow. I used to make my husband drive me to the mountains to trudge in it on Christmas. Then he moves me to Central NY. "See, you'll finally have snow!" Right. No snow, no mountains. Buffalo - you're hogging it all

    Everythign is fine, of course everything is shut down, driving bans and stuff but otherwise everything is fine, 'cept I'm out of beer and must venture out to find an open store, of course i'll carry my hospital ID incase i'm stopped .
    I don't let the weather keep my down, hate it, but i don't let it keep me down. My mother got pummeled with the 50", ahe'about 5 miles south of me towards the "traditional snow belt", we only have about 40, but there's more on the way. Snow bands can be pretty narrow, 4 feet in one area and a few inches only a mile or so a way, kinda weird, it great if your a weather geek. already went through 1/2 gallon of gas in the snow blower, thats a lot for a 8 hp engine, usually only use that much for the whole year.

    Gad Zooks! A snowblower is of no use, I can't fathom that much snow, since 1978 when we had a blizzard..geez. We didn't even have that much snow then.

    So you must have gotten some beer ? lol

    go ohio state buckeyes!!!!!

    oh yeah, we've got about a foot of snow in conneaut now!

    of course that's nothing as compared to what poor kewl is putting up with in buffalo.

    did i mention that i hate snow? and what kills me every year is that when the first major snow falls...all the area residents "forgot" how to drive in it and there are all kinds of accidents. plus the people driving suv's think that they are invincible and they are the ones that i see in a ditch sideways.

    ok, i'm done now.

    have a nice day!

    Sport Utility Vehicles... usually 4 wheel drive, like Jeep Cherokee, Chevy Blazers like the one that I have.

    Someone help me out I know there are so many more kinds. Lexus makes a really cool one that is really expensive but nice to drive.
