Calling for snow today, as soon as it warms up enough to happen.

I would imagine the people who live in the warm climates are glad we are not all clambering to move there. How crowded would it be???? Many who are born and grow up in the colder climates are like me.....I love having the 4 distinct seasons. I love seeing the snow. I have a good furnace in my house, so it's only cold when I'm outside. I am happy when it's over and spring comes, with all the spring rains and everything starting to bloom. Then I'm happy when that's over and look forward to summer, when I have to have the air conditioner cranking so I am not roasting to death. When I've had enough of that, along comes autumn. Cooler weather, colorful leaves. It means the Steelers get another chance.

When it's cold outside, I can always bundle up to be warm. But when it's hot, you're only allowed to take off so much! Fortunately, we are all different and like different things.

I'm like you, too, Carol.
No matter what season it is, I want it to be over

Just curious, where are your "frozen wastelands"?

I may be bitchin' but give me four seasons any day. Like Carol said, I can crank up the heat and bundle up for warmth. Folks like Kayelle can never look out their window and see beautiful snowflakes gently falling to the earth. She can't hear the crunch of snow under her feet. She can't see her breath coming from her mouth.

Grant you Kayelle has her own seasons. There is the fire season, flood season, mud slide season, etc. You get the idea. But she never has a snow storm as a reason to stay home and lounge about. Poor Kayelle. She is so deprived. Oh yeah, she is the one that is taking that fantastic trip, isn't she. Hmmm.....

That's what's nice about PA. One season is always ending and another one starting!

They are predicting a possibility of over a foot of snow for Sunday night into Monday. I believe that prediction was sponsored by Giant Eagle! LOL
