    I like the snow as long as I don't have to shovel it. Have had snow on the ground since Christmas and the snow piles just keep getting bigger and bigger every time it snows. Will soon run out of places to put the snow that is shoveled away.

    I'm right by you in the Ashburn area. And yes, I am a 2009 graduate. Still looking for a job... This snow's not helping.

    This is exactly why I have geographic limits on where I'm willing to live. I hate snow and cold weather. This winter has made me think I don't live far enough south. Hmmm...maybe Key West.

    I love snow when it's falling and everything is nice and white. I hate it when it's been around for a few days looking dirty and the roads are heavily salted and sanded.

    Apparently this much snow is rare for the area (I'm in Arlington)? Sure hope so...

    Where I grew up in western New York we had tons of lake effect snow from the lakes. I could never take the cold very well, and still hate the snow.

    It's so dang cumbersome and anti-usable. Having to wear heavy coats, plan extra time for driving, blah blah. I never got into winter sports, though, which I guess if I had may have changed my outlook.

    And you're sat inside, all warm and cosy, next to the fire, watching it fall :)

    I just wish we'd have some sort of blizzard type deal, it'd be pretty interesting to experience I reckon. After that, I don't care what happens :D

    I live in Indiana and it is kind of bad. We got the whole day off school today, but I don't really think it is THAT bad out. I'd say there is about five inches of snow on the ground, but the roads aren't that icy at all. At least, where I live.

    too hot

    Last summer my wife was complaining about how hot it was. She said she was tired of the heat. I said maybe we should consider moving or getting air conditioning. We both laughed. We live in North Pole, Alaska.

    yeah this is very rare, the last time we had close to this much snow was in 1996... this is the most snowfall on record at dulles airport (the records go back to 1964)

    I heard that the D.C. area is set to break the all-time record for snowfall in one season, somewhere around 55 inches. A couple of years ago, we came close to our all-time record, but fell short of even breaking 100 inches. You guys don't know snow! ;)

    i hate the snow as well. I live in the "snow belt" in NE Ohio, so I guess I am kind of used to it.

    This year, however, I am the lucky soul that gets to shovel all the old people out of it. I work for a garden center that does snow removal in the winter. Tonight's going to be a long night... ugh

    This was from saturday morning. I $h1t you not, it was this deep for the entire neighborhood. 20+ houses. The drifts were up to my waist. It sucked.

    the difference is that we dont have an infrastructure capable of handling this amount of snow... I read earlier that 25% of the snow plows in the dc area are now broken... they were just pickup trucks with plows attached and couldnt deal with this much snow... so neighborhood roads are really messy, and most people do not have snow-worthy cars, nor do they have any idea how to drive... oh and then theres the whole issue of the dc area being one of the most populated areas in the country... all those things together make for a real mess.

    I could never handle living up there where this kind of snow is "normal"...

    Meh.

    Thanks for the weather update, though. It's too light here to call it anything more than flurries. I've been feeling embarrassed about working from home today. Good to know that something will fall to justify this.

    Well....I, for one, love snow. I'm pissed that we're getting such a whimpy winter here in Chicago. You guys in and near D.C. really hit the jackpot. Consider me extremely jealous.

    I even enjoy shoveling snow. *usually

    Snow, just... sucks!

    We've been really lucky in Salt Lake this year though. We have only had a few storms of consequence!) Knock on wood.:cool:

    When the snow was falling on Saturday, it was pretty and I enjoyed getting out with the camera. On Sunday, it was clean-up day, everybody getting the stuff off their cars, and yesterday was more of the same. I had fun gazing at icicles slowly dripping and trying to capture the moment with my camera. Today was dreary and the snow is not pretty any more, going out is a real hassle when dealing with slushy roads, both behind the wheel and in parking lots. I've had enough, I'm ready for this all to go away. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has other plans and even as I am typing it's snowing. Again. AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
