Just started snowing here on Long Island. They are predicting 6 to 8 inches (metric folks can do their own conversions).

I love the snow as long as it doesn't stay around too long.

Ha - you are just now getting what we got on Monday and Tuesday. We have about 12 inches on the ground right now at my house.
Of course if I drive to work an hour away, they have only a couple of inches :roll: .
Have Fun!!

None here. It either went north or south.

It's snowing pretty hard in Pittsburgh today as well. Rush hour, which is never good in this town, was a complete nightmare, my boss still isn't in yet.
It seemed to catch the city completely off-guard(we have been spoiled by easy winters lately, I guess), yetsterday they said "a few flurries", well, we go that all right.

Yeah we got hit here as well. Since this is Maryland and they lack any ability to deal with snow, work was closed and I'm off today.

You sound just like my friend in Phoenix, she sends me an email every day when it hits 70 degrees, irritates me to no end

Good idea, I'll have to do that. I'm sure she will give me the typical, "But it's a dry heat!"
I don't care what anyone says, 115 degrees is HOT, dry or not.

I'm in favor of just about any strategy that involves a nap. I could use one right now...

Wimps! Naps are for the weak.
Seriously - "but it's a dry heat" may seem like a tired refrain from desert-dwellers, but it's still very true. A dry 115°F is much more comfortable than a humid 95°F, IMO.

Can't agree with you on the naps, but I'm with you on the desert, I love it there. I was there in July two years ago, I played golf in 113 degree heat, which was hot, but it was better than playing in Pittsburgh in August, which is typically about 85-90 with dewpoints in the upper 80s. Absolutely miserable.
I thought being in the the sun itself was much worse than the heat. We floated the Salt River, I covered myself with sunblock, still got totally fried!

Gotta agree there. Desert-dwellers don't whine about heat - they worry about (and protect themselves against) skin cancer. Good sunblock that doesn't wash off is very important.

Yeah I learned my lesson there with that little episode, waterproof sunblock is the key. I also learned never go anywhere in AZ without a hat, especially if your hairline ain't what it used to be!
