Yeah, we have had that storm for two days now and you don't see us complaining......

How many inches/cm did you get? And I don't remember complaining about it, though certainly much windging by the media here.
These are not northern peoples, they bring out winter parkas and head gear when I simply shift from shorts/T-shirts to pants and long sleeve shirts.

Officially our little town got 35 inches/89 cm in less than 24 hours likely because we are in a valley, so must be some localized 'drift' or Bernoulli effect on snow flake drop, but most other areas had about 24 inches. The infrastructure and budget is not here to handle that, they're more worried about crime and guns, and not doing a good job there either.

:shock:

Oh no!...white fluffy soft fun stuff has fallen out of the sky and now i have to not go to work and slide about with my kids in a rare "family" day which i would never dream of doing ordinarily....if it gets worse we will have to eat a reduced fat healthy meal and have a conversation in candlelight...just as well i am in all likelyhood living in society filled with overweight people and wont starve.

Jed, YOU know, jokes are only really funny when based in truth. A nice zinger there. Well played Sir. :grin: :lol:

That was to be the other half of my rant, but I thought it might make me seem like an angry crank, that feels that he's been slighted by God when He gave someone else the snow I covet. So I left it out. :wink:

Just saw this a week and a half late :oops: We started out with about a half an inch of ice followed by 10 inches of snow on Friday and into Saturday. So I had a snow day Friday but it was back to work by Monday.

Yawn... 120" of snow since January 1 at 9500' on the ski hill :mrgreen:

Granted, town is at only 6200', so much less than that for me to shovel. But the piles at the end of my driveway are tits-deep. Still, you don't hear much whining here. Just another January. :lol:
