    It is 7:03 AM CST, the ground is covered with snow. The snowflakes are huge. The trees are covered, there are leaves on some of the Pin Oaks yet and the snow is weighing them down. The wind is blowing from the North. It is 33.1* out. You just wouldn't believe that we hit a high temperature for November 11-- +68*. And now it is snowing hard! Gotta admit it's beautiful, for another 1/2 hour! Then I am ready for Spring! Happy Wintertime! Edie

    I am in Mich. It is on the way. I need to get the hoses put away and get a warmer for the water in the chicken coop at the farm. I know to expect this every year, but I am so not ready for it. I guess I can delegate the task to my son who lives there.

    I have lived in 'your kind of weather'. It is all so beautiful when it first snows. You live a different way of life than people do where it doesn't snow know like that. You don't realize how much of a 'survivor' you are until you live where it does not snow so much. I am glad you have the beauty to enjoy and I am sorry it has to be so cold and messy other times. I am seeing the glass half full. I would love to enjoy one more blizzard. Inside, looking out. I always enjoyed them so much because we knew precisely when they were coming and could button down until they were gone and the plows came. Such a different way of life. Enjoy the beauty.

    I remember what it was like when the first snow fell every year in MN and WI! We always had a "snow pool" for the first measurable snow! What fun! But I do enjoy not having to shovel winter! Now that I am retired, let it snow!

    I DO NOT want it to snow anytime soon...

    I just started driving a school bus and it's one of the HUGE ones... I'm not looking forward to driving in the stuff!!!

    I live at Lake Ontario, and we either miss it or get totally blasted!

    Why is it that most of us who live in the snow areas - Hate snow? I know I do. It's ok on the ground, just hate driving in it.

    Yes I hate snow. I have no ties to anywhere warm. I delivered mail for 33 years. Retired a year ago and now I just hibernate. If I don't have to go out I don't. Plenty of projects lined up, and food in the pantry.

    It was 72* here today, the most snow we have gotten in 9 years was 7inches and it was gone in 3 days. I would love snow for Christmas and Christmas Eve but then it can go. In 2002 the first year we lived her it was 82* Christmas day and being from Maine we were so uncomfortable and it seemed so strange to be wearing shorts and t shirts.

    Well, it is still snowing out - the city of St. Paul has declared a snow emergency starting tonight. We have gotten 9" today. It is heavy wet snow, breaking branches on a lot of trees. I went out and shoveled and had to do it bit by bit - too heavy! OK, that's it! I'm done. No more snow!

    Just found out the kids are going to be here for Thanksgiving. Oh, that made my day!

    If anyone likes New England Clam Chowder, let me know and I will write it out here. Perfect dinner tonight with lunch meat, cheese and Kaiser Rolls! Pumpkin Pie for dessert. My husband loved the soup. So simple - Crock Pot. I would be more than glad to share - you will not believe how easy it is!

    Keep warm, girls!!!!!!! Edie

    None where I live in New Hampshire yet, but it will be here soon enough. I like the cold, but if the snow and ice could just not fall on the roads!

    Roads, sidewalks and alleys scare the bejabbers out of me. My husband fell last year and ended up having surgery and three pins and a plate put in his arm.

    I love snow and cold weather, temps in about 75 everyday last week, very disgusting. Turned colder this morning and I like it better. I retired June 2nd and won't have to drive in the snow, unless it snows on my shopping day. I have a 4WD pick up and it drives very well on the snow.
