    Free!

    I'm trying to give away snow, but I have no takers! This is a picture of my deck. That is the top of the railing sticking out.

    That is a lot of snow to have to deal with! We would love the moisture but not necessarily the snow to get it!

    Great picture as long as you keep most of it up north. I believe we need a pipeline from the northeast to the southwest to relieve the northeast of too much snow and to relieve the southwest of too little moisture.

    Keep your fingers crossed that all this snow melts slowly.

    Nope, I've had enough myself. You can keep it. The only good thing about snow is that it waters your grass!

    Now that would be a good thing.....we need aqueducts like the Romans built!

    I'm from southeastern PA, we didn't get a whole heck of a lot of snow (thank the good Lord) but we did get the COLD.
    It seems that north, and south of where I live sure got more then their fair share of this stuff. I have a friend who has an Alaskan Malamute and she is shedding her winter coat like mad. He claims that this is a sure sign of warm weather coming. Even when they lived in CA she never shed before March. So I hope he is right and warm weather comes very soon!!

    I don't mind snow too much, I hate ice. We have had some snow, not a lot.

    Maybe you shouldn't offer it in bulk, how about one snowflake at a time.

    I just read in today's paper that a man is packing it up in blocks and shipping it off to area's with no snow. Even though some melts along the way he said you can still make about 5-15 snowballs. On that note I could supply this entire country with snowballs for a year with what I have just in my yard.

    I'm not sure it would ship well, but we could use it in Oregon.

    NO thanks !! Our Colorado mountains are getting more snow. We are only getting the cold but did have a day of snow this week. Depending on what city on the western side of the mountains as to what amount of snow (up to 2-3 feet).

    Is the freight free??? We could sure use it here in SoCal.

    Just read some guy is bottling Boston snow and offering it on ebay. You could make some extra cash to buy fabric.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I saw the "free" and thought, well, it will be gone when I get to there, but I see there are no takers! We don't need it either as we got about a foot last night. LOL
