    This is our 7th snowstorm since Christmas! Pretty but boring, and it is costing a fortune for clean up!

    I just talked to my daughter, who lives in the Buena Vista, Virginia. She has lived there 11 years. Today is her birthday and she said it has snowed on her birthday every year she has been there. It is a beautiful state. I wish I was there.

    This storm, second half, is supposed to drop 10 inches and they sent the govt. home 2 hours early and the mall is crowded, no parking and the streets are running 10 mph over the speed limit. I will be shocked if we actually see the 10 inches. They closed our schools at 5am and the streets were clear.

    lol isnt that funny how they close everything before anything hits. When I first moved to Va they would call for 1 inch of snow and they would cancel school. I could not figure out why for th elife of me than it hit me.... Va is not prepared for weather like Iowa is.. I guess I was used to it in Iowa...

    We averaging around 1 snow a week since mid December. Todays storm was suppose to start as rain but we already have 6" on the ground, no rain in sight and expecting another 8-10". So much for predicting the weather. Think I'll just hide in my sewing room til Spring. I wish!

    I would love to have a snow day to stay home. I hope it is not too bad for those that have to get out. No weather caused days away from work hear.

    I have been watching on the news and I don't think I could take it after 40 some years in Arizona. it was 68 here today and my pansies are looking real good. It is to hot to grow anything but weeds in the summer.

    I too want to know why all the storms are going to the south and east of me in upstate NY. The biggest snow we've had all year was about 4" and it probably wasn't even that much. I would really like to have a snow day but it just isn't happening here.

    And we're getting nothing out of today's storm... :cry:
