    We in the south do not have the luxury of having a lot of the white stuff falling from the sky. I am looking at the weather and we are under a "Winter Weather Warning"! :-D

    I am in West Tn and they are predicting 6"+ for our area and even more as you snake off into Mississippi. It is all supposed to start early Sunday evening and go through Monday afternoon. I went to the store to grab dog food and treats and it was a mad house. But we are ready for the snow and do not plan on going anywhere (my work is 30' from my backdoor) and are really excited about seeing the snow. :-D

    The best part is that the dogs will just love playing in it like kids!!!

    What a screwy weather pattern we're having these days! We had a little flurry today but haven't had the snow we usually do by this time of year. Good thing is that we haven't had the ice either...knock wood. Enjoy it!

    It's a winter wonderland here in western NC. So pretty out! Windy & cold, but pretty! Our dogs love it too! We have chances for more in the next 3 days too. Very unusual here too, more than we have seen in years. Just glad we are both retired & can stay home & out of it now,& enjoy the view!...

    Me Me Me!!! I'm hearing we are expecting snow possibly Tuesday(?)!! I love snow! We had 13 inches the day after Christmas, but it is all gone now. We had a few beautiful snow showers today, pretty to look at but didn't amount to much. Doing the snow dance for next week!!! :)

    I just called my son in Hot-lanta (Atlanta, GA) because he's not one to watch the news and weather channels and he rarely has food in the house. I told him to get ready... he WILL be snowed in.

    That is too funny..... I sure wish I could send some of ours your way, I have been hearing alot of the areas that are getting snow down south, How do you LUCKY southerners handle a winter storm, Do you have snow plows and such for your streets or do you just close up until the snow melts some? I would love to be somewhere WARM right now.

    We southerners are used to snow, contrary to what you may have heard! We have salt, snow plows, just like everyone else. I spent 30 years in middle Tennessee and my DH is native of there. I promise you we have seen our fair share of snow and ice. Some people think just because it snows they are going to be snowed in for a long time. I choose not to get out in it anymore, because so many people seem like they don't know how to drive in it and will NOT slow down. I don't want those fools to run into my truck! I have never been snowed in so bad I couldn't go anywhere if I chose to.

    I have my winter tires on my hot rod so I am good!! I run my Wide White Walls all year long until December then I put the radial tires on it until the chances of snow are gone, then the WWW's go back on.

    But I will say it is interesting to drive it on the snow and ice when I have over 400hp and a 4:11 gear I tend to slide around a lot! But I have driven hot rods all of my life so I am used to it.

    we got about 4 inches at Christmas but it melted quickly. we had a few flurries today that weren't called for. We know that if its coming thru Atlanta we are going to get it! If it comes from the west the mountains stop it and it never comes from the north it seems. Lets see I have the makings for a big pot of veggie soup, plenty of other groceries, toilet paper,wood on the porch, fabric and a treadle..........bring it on! Dh has 4wd and can get to work and the kids are homeschooled so we are good.

    Basicly we feel that God brought it & He will get rid of it when He's ready! Seriously, I grew up in Ohio~ I KNOW what real snow is; now I live in the Atlanta area & any snow/threat of snow closes all schools, churches, etc. Life comes to a standstill...for about 3 hours until the snow is gone. 17 years ago we had 8" of snow & they still talk about it.That being said, we did have a lovely white Christmas this year & some of the snow even lasted for a few days and now we are suppose to get 3-5 inches on Monday. This has been a crazy weather year.

    I live in Maine and we want snow. It really helps the economy. Lodging, snowmobiling,plowing ect. The storms keep going out to sea.

    I'm ready here in Mississippi! Got dog food and people food and lots of sewing to do. I just hope we don't get ice because with all the trees we lose power fast with ice and I don't have a machine that sews without power.

    We are ready to just hole up here in KS, if necessary. I'm scheduled to do the BOM at a LQS, but that may not occur. I promised myself when I retired that bad weather meant stay inside and enjoy looking out the windows, lol.

    We had a white Christmas Eve and Christmas here and a dusting last night, not on the roads, got new and haven't gotten to use the 4 WD yet. Snow isn't a problem here, we get it, in the 80s we had two 15" snow falls and no 4 WD back then, have had one for 10 yr.s and not a whole lot of snow since.

    This post made me chuckle. I live in Ohio but am from upstate New York so to me Ohio is not very snowy!!
    Actually, it's perfect for me. I love snow but not the record amounts that Syracuse gets lol :D:D

    sorry., but ALL of your posts made me chuckle...I grew up in South MS..on the Gulf Coast, when it would snow down there, it was talked about for years.....

    Then I moved to Alaska...not just anywhere in AK, but Islands like Adak, Ketchikan and the great village of Bethel....I got your snow..and the -70...temps...though must say that in Ketchikan we mostly ended up with rain.,..had more snow in PA...

    now when the call for snow here in OK, I just laugh and stay inside...cuz these idiots think if you have a 4 wheel drive truck (and they all do) you must be able to drive in snow...NOT....it is safer inside....our walking if you must go out...
