March roars in


Wow. Looks like a snow day tomorrow.

Edited to add: Confirmed as of 9:40 p.m. Figured since the local school district closed we would eventually, I was just hoping it would be before 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. Snow is still coming down, and looks like it will all night. Calling for 7-10 inches for our area. Interesting...

It looks like everyone's getting one tomorrow - it's supposed to be nasty.

I can hope that the hubby gets a complete snow day... more likely to have a delayed start though.

I know Philly's getting it a little later.

::rolls eyes:: He got a one hour delay. Never mind that it's still snowing like crazy and you can't tell that our road was plowed this morning. The County Commissioners don't care... after all, they're elected officials - they don't have to come in if they don't feel like it.

Did that stick? I'm really surprised to hear that.

We ended up getting about a foot of snow. Apparently our area got hit the hardest.

I'll repeat what I said to brotherflounder (who is in SC) and evil_admiral (in GA) when they both reported that they'd gotten snow:

Wuss! :P

(I just threw a virtual snowball at Eric over Facebook. ;) )

I've had to go to work when we've gotten over a foot of snow. Possibly even two feet over 24-48 hours.

Honey, I was born and raised in Philadelphia - I can handle a few inches of snow, trust. :)

I know, but I thought that maybe you spent too many years in San Diego and got spoiled. :P

I just saw some footage from Alabama and Georgia on the news - it actually does look pretty nasty, but that's because it's windy and the snow is drifting, making visibility really poor. OTOH, Fredericton, NB has gotten 25 centimetres (about 10 inches).

Keep in mind that places like Alabama and Georgia simply don't get snow, let alone several inches. They get a cold snap and - GASP! - frost on the ground and they're closing schools for 3 days. Where I am snow is common enough, although we're looking at a foot tonight, which is kind of unusual (and more than we've gotten so far this winter).

I can't speak for Alabama, but this is the second time since January that they've gotten snow in Atlanta, though. (Or perhaps it was only forecast last time - I'm not sure.) They should be used to it by now. ;)

(I'm glad I bought Eric a toque when I went down there. I want him to keep his head warm. :) )

I may have shared this before - I'm reminded of the Gallifrey I went to about three years ago. I was outside with Alan Ruscoe, wearing shorts and a t-shirt and laughing at all of the Angelenos walking around in fur coats, hats and gloves. I'm sure they were laughing at me, too.

When I came back inside, a friend told me that someone had seen me and said, "What is he, insane?" to which my friend replied, "No, he's Canadian."

(It wasn't actually what I'd call warm, admittedly - it was maybe 10-15C, or 50-60F - but compared to the weather here, it was tropical. I did have to put long pants and a jacket on when the sun went down.)

As for getting a foot or so tonight, we've probably gotten that much all at once about ten times this winter. I wish we had your climate. (At least I don't have to shovel it.)

I didn't move to San Diego for the weather, but it sure was a nice perk. :)

I'll send it to you when I'm through with it. ;)
