Heck a couple of years ago, ONE HALF INCH of sudden snow here caused havoc.
It took my wife NINE HOURS to drive home.... a whopping 7.5 miles.
People were actually giving up just a couple miles from home and renting hotel rooms.
All the schools, universities and businesses closed at the same time and conditions were
just right for the roads to become slick instantly.

What a mess.

Wow. You win, Mikki. Barely ;^)
I had to clear my snow though. I just got done clearing things "well enough" for now. Heating up some creamed jalapeno and smoked chicken soup and taking a breather. I'm whooped.The sun is out though....
Give us this day our daily bacon.

We didn't get the snow that was expected here, only a couple inches. The did have to plow the roads though. They are calling for more tonight. My dd lives way east of us and she had a heck of a time driving home last night. She is more in the snowbelt than we are.

I posted this picture a few weeks ago in response to the fall color thread. This is what fall, winter, spring and summer look like, it never changes. Your winter pics are gorgeous to me. I miss the snow (uh but only for a couple of snowfalls) because here in Vegas the scene is the same. The snow pic of a scene of my RV lot in Michigan, this is the kind of winter I'm used to and I really do miss it: Click to enlarge

We have only had one little snow here that was gone by the afternoon. The ski resorts are getting worried about not having snow now. Out of the 26 big ski areas only 8 are open. Thanksgiving is usually a big ski time here in Colorado.

I don't mind the snow (a 4 letter word for me) as long as it stays up in the big mountains and not down in the foothills.

Send a message via AIM to mikki
one ski resort in our area opened yesterday and another is opening this weekend. thefirst its the 3rd earlies time its opened. The snow has just started again, I'm not looking forward to tomarrow morning. Wish hubby would let me plow but, he made every excuse of why I can't. I guess if he gets stuck again when he gets home thats his problem.

when I read this this afternoon I thought, poor girl, thank god it doesn't happen here...

and now?
it looks almost the same when I watch out of the window..
but it's fun driving with the car
