Default Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

YEEEEEHAAAAA! Yipeeeee! We have at least 7 inches so far and it is still coming. The snow blower DH just bought is a blast.

Note to self: Turn the thingy around before going by the garage that is open!

Kids don't think there will be school Friday. I'm going back out and getting the sled down. It is great packing snow. Snow ball fight anyone?!!


P.S.- The first one that copies and pastes this post in a few months when I'm compaining is a dead duck!

Sounds like my kind of day. I have my nothing like a snow day shirt on in anticipation for tomorrow. We won't have that much but who knows.
Have fun sleigh riding.

T-Bug, maybe we join you in a couple of days, only not the heavy snowfall you have.

Sue is flying to Germany one of these days and they expect snow this weekend too

Maybe a little chance we have a white X-mas

TBug,
What a wonderful nation of diversity of likes and dislikes we all have.
If I was sitting in your snow storm it would be my personal version of Dante's Inferno.
I know you enjoy it and I enjoy being on the outside looking in.

Regards,
Ben

Come out and play you guys!!!

Karen, they said we were not going to get that much either. I'm always a day ahead of what you get. So you get the used snow.

T-Bug: I'm glad you are enjoying the snow. I'm sorry to say I do not share in your enthusiasm. I'm so sick of the white stuff and it isn't even winter yet!!!!!!! Calgon take me away.......or should I say "RCL take me away!"
. Have fun!

Agree with Tide Pride! Even though I persist in living in northern Michigan, I still HATE snow. It starts about Nov. 15th and annoys me until about April 15th.

Had to shovel myself out of the driveway this a.m. - bless the City for plowing so well, but do they need to dump it all at the bottom of my driveway?

It's not even winter yet and my tolerance is WAY down!

T-Bug, we're expecting a big one by tomorrow morning, up to 25-30cms.
I'm hoping for a Snow Day, so I can stay home and finish my Christmas cards!

We are getting it now (Friday morning). Not in time for schools in our County to close. it will be a mess tho' when it is time for the kids to go home. It is falling really fast, and is pretty wet.

Belqique: Yeah you really get the snow up there. We must have the same snowplow guy! By me if we get a foot of snow at one time that's unusual, but not for the UP. My son is thinking of going to Michigan Tech. I hear they get it bad.

Are far as not liking it. Well, we can't stop it so you gotta have fun with it. Life's to short, >>>throws a snowball<<<

Ben: Too funny!

Hi TBug,

We ended up getting just an ice build up. Yucky!

RDonna, I have to ask my husband to translate the CM's into inches. Sounds like alot. He just let me know. He says that is over a foot.

K

Ps I am still waiting for my 2 to 3 foot blizzard.
