    So the first true snow storm is expected to hit the Northeast on Valentines Day. On top of the 10 ft that upstate New York has already had last week. I am looking forward to some snow, But I don't want the ice that is also expected.

    same here, cool that we are finally gettin' snow, but I don't want ice. It's crazy upstate, that is so much snow. Not lookin' forward to shovelin' either, but I don't have anywhere to go so that's good.

    Chicago definitely wasn't looking good when I watched their noon news.

    Good luck to all of you.

    Here in Floriduh, we had some mad thunderstorms that went away quickly and after the recent tornadoes, we feel pretty lucky now, I'd say.

    My wife and I are currently stranded at her grandmother's house in Seattle because of the snow. Now with all the ice around D.C. we may be here another day. We're praying that isn't the case as we are anxious to get back to our select comfort bed ... not that grandma's hospitality is bad.

    We got a little, but its the biggest we have had. Turned to Freezing Rain, so hopefully it will start up again, and I'll miss school

    Here in northeast Ohio, it's bad. I shoveled my drive just a bit ago -- there was a 2-3" accumulation -- and my daughter told me that she and my son had just cleared the driveway an hour before.

    My future son-in-law is taking a hotel room rather than drive the entire distance from downtown Cleveland.

    And this is going to continue through Wednesday morning, when I'm supposed to take my mother-in-law for cataract surgery. It's going to be a mess.

    Nothing yet here in beautiful Hartford.

    I'll believe it when it actually like, falls from the sky.

    I feel empirical. Fine.

    I know this is majorly different from your situation, but do you think you could knock some sense into our school board to cancel school because here in Southern Illinois, we had quite a bit of rain (all the way from 24 hrs ago), then sleet, then about 2-3" of snow. That rain has frozen over and they haven't canceled school yet. Hopefully they will change their mind.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Edit
    : Wow flyfish, did you talk to them or what because it's canceled now.

    Hartford? Beautiful? Where?
    Just Kidding.:D

    My dad got the snow blower ready this weekend. I am so excited. No school tomorrow!!! My road is already sanded and salted. I just heard TV it should be snowing in all of CT within the hour. For where I live, they said 10-14" + sleet + freezing rain. I'll believe it when I see it. They make the biggest deal out of nothing. Then again they said "chances of snow showers" ended up in 12" of snow last year.

    My mom still has summer tires on her SUV- probably not a good idea to drive it tomorrow.

    thedude110, tomorrow when you're shoveling, don't get shot.

    Sorry, us suburbanites of CT look down upon hartford so much. I can think of so many hartford stories to support why.

    Am actually in W. Hartford, though nobody knows where that is so I always just say "I'm from Hartford." I really do think Hartford gets a bad rap -- locally and nationally. Outside of the North End, it's really not a terribly dangerous city. White flight needed to build up quite a myth around itself, I think.

    I wish I were shovelling. All we have is ice. Lotsa lotsa ice. Off work today, though, so can't complain too much. :p

    Well you should have said West Hartford! Thats totally different. I really like W. Hartford. There are some really cool houses, cool neighborhoods, good mall access etc.

    I agree that hartford does have its nice parts.

    These are my good hartford stories
    1) My sisters BF goes to Trinity. He parked his car on summit street for less than 3hrs. He came back and it was broken into, the dash ripped apart, and the radio stolen
    2) My school "imports" Hartford students to create more diversity. Everyone jokes "if you go to hartford, you'll get shot". One of the hartford students little brothers got shot
    3) Three days later the brother got shot

    Ridiculous.


    Here we have 1" snow, 3" of sleet. Its weird.
