    Yup, a bit jealous here...

    Heard this morning we have a chance of snow towards the end of the week, saying a couple inches. But, I think it's going to hit Friday night into Saturday. Booo!

    We are normally not very nervous about snow at all, and rarely call off school, but the winds were predicted to be about 50 mph with snow falling at 9am. I imagine they didn't want to get the kids at school and then not be able to get them home safely. However, here I sit at almost 1pm with only a few flakes flying around. That's weather forecasting for ya!

    I grew up in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and if a single flake was ever sighted the whole darn city shut down and parents rushed to school to pick up their kids! Now that I live in the great white north it sometimes (literally) takes the governor to get schools to close.
    Hahaha, sounds right! Snow + Texas = Mass Chaos!! Driving in the rain is hard....don't even mention driving in the snow!!

    In Chicagoland, we have weirdly warm weather right now, but it's going to be in the teens by mid-week.
    I love snow. I hate rain with a fiery passion, but snow is delightful (to me).
    I am there with you in the west 'burbs of Chicago! The weekend was awesome- we got a bunch of yardwork done! Tomorrow it drops

    I love snow days until I have to make them up in June! I do enjoy a good snow storm now and then though.

    It is 81* in North Texas presently. I saw people in shorts and tank tops yesterday while I was Christmas shopping. We don't have snow days; we have ice days. Our temps, when cold, usually hover around freezing; just enough for the cars to melt the accumulation and then re-freeze. Makes for happy drivers.

    So jealous! We rarely get snow days here in Texas. They usually just close down the schools if there is a smidge chance there might be ice on the road because none of us Texans know how to drive on ice. Just watch the news! It's horrible!

    No snow days here in PA, just weather that's warm one day and freezing the next. When I was in 4th grade my best friend moved from OH to GA. She called to tell me that they had a snow day and she could not believe that they got miss school because of a dusting of snow. I remember her saying "There's not even enough to make a snowball!" meanwhile, in OH we were still going to school despite there being 10 inches of snow on the ground.

    You should see when it rains in Southern California, worse than any ice storm I have ever seen. Accidents EVERYWHERE!

    I know they need rain in the worst way. I was visiting and making the trip to LAX to fly out at 4AM on a weekday and it looked like demolition derby. Worse than anything I've seen on the East Coast.

    Yep. Now, back to our regularly scheduled December weather
    We got our Christmas lights up on Saturday, though, which was nice.
    I'm up north, but my family is all in the western
    'burbs- small world!
