    I feel your pain. I hate snow. At least, down there it should melt pretty quickly.

    It's headed our way--should start in the next few hours. We are ready for it---grocery shopped yesterday, car is full of gas and we have firewood in case the electricity goes out.

    Just think... there are people up north that would kill for that little bit of snow (compared to the blizzards that dump feet on us) :D

    How far south did you move?

    Also - love your quote ....power tool! My son in law doesn't 'do' power tools and has told my daughter that there is no fear of him touching her sewing machine because it "IS' a power tool LMBO

    She is the one who works the power tools of all kinds in their household - he does the cooking!

    In the blizzard of 1978 my husband (before I met him) was working at a gas station less than 300 FEET from his house (Massachusetts). It took him two days to get home and he and the other two guys lived on candy bars and soda. Now that is a snow storm.

    (I was living in Nashville at the time. Got about 2 inches)

    Isn't it the truth? I stayed here in Jacksonville (past 35 years) for the beaches, the warm weather, and not having to shovel snow anymore. Trust me as I tell you I will NOT be shoveling snow this time either. BUT I've not had to wear a winter coat in all these years until now. It's NOT fun!

    Our weather is achanging.

    My mom always tells the story of when she was in high school in Iowa (late 60s I think) and there was a snow storm so bad, she got stuck in the house with TWO guys she was dating at the time. Guess the snow was completely covering the doors and no one could get out. Now that's a place a wouldn't want to be!

    I love the Jacksonville/Wilmington area! If I could figure out a way to get my husband a job there, we'd move in a heart beat!

    believe me when I say - I SURVIVED THE BLIZZARD OF '78

    snow "tunnels" on the roads - when they finally got some roads open - DH was stuck in the factory, then my sister's for four days - I was home with three kids - (this was in Ft. Wayne area)

    so far we have about 4 inches and it is really tapered off - just a few lazy flakes coming down now and it's starting to melt - it's 38 degrees! it is sposed to freeze tonite....
    the elec has been off once already...

    Jobs are tough to get in this area, there are so many military spouses to take up the jobs. But I do love the area........MOST of the time!

    I am not like you all at all. I say bring on the snow. I would like to see a** deep snow atleast once out my front door. We have gotten about 6 to 7 inches twice over the last 2 and a half weeks. Loved every minute of it even when I was stuck inside with the 3 kids. My DH wont let the weather keep him from going to work. I say let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. LOL

    I remember the blizzard of '78! I was 6! I remember being stuck in the house for what seemed like weeks at a time! I remember my dad climbing out the 2nd floor window to get on a neighbors' snowmobile to get milk from the store. I lived south of Ft. Wayne at the time. Those were the good ole' days! let it snow let it snow let it snow!!!

    LOL, I would just enjoy it if it doesn't happen often. You can use all those quilts you've made to keep warm.

    I have to say, when I was a little kid living in Alabama, I remember getting snow there. I remember my dad building a snowman with me. I figured you got snow, just not much of it?

    I remember that winter! I was in 8th grade. We had school only 9 days the entire month of January. It was an unforgetable winter. The snow was drifted so high that we could stand on the machine shed roof just by climbing up a drift. Then we got to sled down.................so much fun for kids!!!

    Every state in the US had snow on the ground yesterday, except for Hawaii, according to this: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100213/...states_of_snow

    Of course, that doesn't mean there's snow in every place in every state.

    I also survived the blizzard of "78 in Mass. I sewed by turning the wheel of my machine by hand to finish the bridesmaid dress I was working on. It saved my sanity!!
    My kids thought I was silly but daughter loved the dress.
