    You do sometimes. I was caught in a blizzard coming in on the ferry from France a few years back...

    But yeah, it's great. I was starting to get sad about the lack of snow--even went to the east coast last week and it was in the 60s. But now? Happy. :D

    Was that in the evening one night in January? (I think January) If so, I remember that, everyone ran out of their houses and had snowball fights in the street :D

    No, it was late December, as I spent two days in Picadilly and then headed up to Stirling for New Year's. Which was, I am pretty sure, 2000-2001.

    I need to get back over there sometime. Maybe for Truck Festival.

    Probably was the one I'm thinking about then, it's not like there have been any other blizzards to single out lol.

    Heh, probably. We waited half an hour in the snow and gales. My girlfriend burrowed into my coat so deep that my chest is still slightly concave.

    In Everett (north of Seattle) have snow as well. Snow last wed/thur and more today. Most of it is just powdered. Can't make great snowballs. Have to watch out for the ice left over from the weekend.

    Weather in New England this winter and last winter has been horrible. No snow this year in CT and does not look like we will be getting any anytime soon...

    Congratulations dude.

    Over here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada we've FINALLY gotten our first valid (I define valid as snow that stays on the ground overnight, this year more than 1hr lol) of the season.

    Our usually guaranteed days of snow as well as coldest nights of the winter season ...

    Dec 24th & 25th - both days were just above freezing temperature's & record highs over 22yrs +

    December 29thg & 31st - both set warm high records & warm lows. 31st we had dizzle and fog overnight - I worked overnight and could see going out for donuts.

    January 1 and up till 3 days ago we had record warm lows & highs over 30+yrs :D

    But January 13 - Sunday night it got really cold - freezing rain fell all night and although it LOOKS like snow - its not. It's more like frozen slush lol. But its cold, looks like, and brittle like packed snow. Man -6 with windchill feeling like -15degrees feels extremely cold. I've lived here all my life and it STILL feels like -30.

    Your snow is turning into rain here in Floriduh Wednesday and Thursday.

    Temperatures are expected to drop to about 53 degrees F. :D It was colder a few weeks ago when it dropped to the upper 30s.

    Good luck with your shovelling.

    Vancouver's been getting more snow than usual this season. It's all kind of slushy ATM, though.

    I would trade the cold in for some good beach weather.

    Lol. I love all you people oogling over snow. Here in MN, it's like grass or trees, but it's such a novelty everywhere else :D I guess that's why we really know how to drive in it, and everywhere else across the nation there are accidents left and right because of the noobness associated with these rookie snow drivers.
