    Hang tight - the stuff here is past knee deep. The 30 MPH wind is moving it around a bit, too.

    Fill the reefer and rent some movies.

    I haven't touched any snow this winter or the last one. I don't know if I should be sad that I missed the snowball fights or happy that I haven't been stranded on some airport.

    The biggest storm this winter is also coming up to Canada. They predict 25cm (10 inches) of snow.
    Today there was only 1cm of snow and I saw 3 cars skidded out of control and smashed to pieces. Their drivers were all from the same Oriental country (*****). The coming storm will wipe them all off the roads.

    It is currently 18°F out there, with a nice crusty glaze over everything. Looks like I'll be missing work.

    You Texans are wimps ;)

    Apparently when we used to live there everyone would be freaking out over the road conditions when there was an inch of snow :p

    The satellite pics show that most of the storm will miss me.
    A little snow then a little freezing rain then heavy rain.

    When I said glaze, I did not say snow. Freezing rain is the norm here, and it has not let us down. A lot of trees are dying tonight.

    There was about a half-inch of ice with a slight dusting of snow outside my apartment here in Grand Prairie. I spent the day watching the reporters describing all the accidents and such from all the sleet and snow.

    Seriously, people are dying in Dallas tonight. We do not have enough homeless shelters. This is once every 20 years weather, no one is equipped to handle 16°F (-9°C) in this part of the country.

    I get very depressed thinking about it.

    Were worried about the same thing, fortunately this happens every year or two here so churches are ready for it.

    I remember the ice storm form a few years back, knocked power out real good for a couple days, every little blade of grass had a quarter inch of ice on it
    Pretty and dangerous, funny how those go so well together :/

    EDIT
    cold doesen't surprise most people here, there are many mornings every year when it is sub-zero and i can go outside fter showering and freeze my hair :)

    Its when we lose power that things can get nasty

    We got about a foot total, that kinda wasn't fun to move out of the driveway and sidewalk. Snowblower helps a lot, makes snow an annoyance is all.

    Currently -4 (°F), supposed to get to a balmy 2°F above tomorrow.

    I'm glad we didn't get the freezing rain/ice storm, those are in spring/fall around here for a week or two and take down power lines. Any roofs that would fall in have fallen in a long time ago, so that's a minor worry,pretty steep pitches on roofs around here compared to, say, Vegas.

    I am smack in the middle of the pretty big snowstorm now. About 8cm (3 inches) are on the ground. The satellite photo shows that the snowing will end in about 3 hours.
