    I heard this morning on the news (Lynchburg, VA) that it would be snowing in Houston today. If the weather guy can get it right for Houston--maybe he will get it right for us. We are supposed to get 1-3 inches.

    LET IT SNOW!!!

    lol, I just looked on the weather network and it says you guys are having light snow, but with a 'winter storm warning'.
    How much accumulation would you need for it to be considered a snow storm in the south?
    I went to a city in the south of France a couple of years ago, and their city gets totally paralyzed for a few inches of snow. Snow plows and things like that don't exist over there, so aparantly the whole city shuts down...

    The county schools shut down with the threat of snow, but the city schools (where I work) don't. The county roads are unpaved and mountainous. They can be very dangerous and everyone is so lawsuit happy these days I guess the school systems knows to CYA.
    The businesses, etc. shut down with 6 in. or more. I am orginally from N. Indiana where we have "real" snow plows. I joke the ones here in Va are made from Tupperware! When the blade hits the road it doesn't even spark.

    If is snowed here, it would be the end of the world!!! No one has plows, most have never seen a real snow shovel in their lives. The 5 billion cars on the road In Los Angeles would all collide into each other. A true disaster!!! LOL

    Forget winter tires, too, I guess?

    They're mandatory here, you HAVE to have winter tires on your car from december to april, and you HAVE to put summer/all seasons on your car the rest of the year, or they WILL give you tickets.

    I always pray and wish that we won't get any snow til at least after Christmas. I could do without any snow or ice or 20 below weather but we live in Iowa and that is just plain crazy to expect to not have any of this winter stuff!!

    The irony of it is that right now we have 25 to 30 degree weather and we are freezing. After it gets below 0 and stays there for a few weeks we will think 25 -30 is warm!!
    Happens every year!

    As of now it is all gone. It might snow more tonight and then it will be colder so I should be able to get more pics. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Looks like your kids were having a great time...We didn't get as much snow in League City (it didn't stick anyway). The kids teachers let them go out and play in it (JR & HS) I thought that was funny. We just moved to the Houston area from Amarillo so really this was nothing compared to what we are used to, but I guess it is a rarity here :)

    At least the wind doesn't blow 90 miles per hour here...makes the cold weather and snow A LOT more tolerable! I tried to take pics but they didn't take. It was interesting seeing it snow with the palm trees in the background....LOL

    When I was living in Nashville, TN one evening they predicted snow for the next day. They called off school and the snow never showed up. Being from Massachusetts, I thought this was quite funny.

    It's snowing here tonight. My boys [avatar] just love playing in it. The only problem is my Bichon gets all curly and it's hard to brush him out. Oh well!
