Hmmmm. I would send some snow, nl, but we haven't had any yet. Except for that bunch in November. :roll:

:D

But we will see what we can do. Maybe the transbolic coil can be temporarily converted into a snow-maker. 8)

Tooks, no snow but buckets of rain. Which has really cooled things down. Thanks!!

Welcome back Calma!!!

My older brother woke me up with a phone call asking me to record the NFL for him. (he's working today) Apparently he has switched from SF to Houston. Anyway, he wasn't aware there were "saturday" games being shown here today, they normally show sunday and monday games. Not an issue really, I was awake.

My car, unfortunately, has already proved to be pretty bad in the snow once already, so I am not looking forward to a blizzard. I've been stocking up on supplies.

Welp, the snow is falling right now. I suspect we will get about 6 inches here. Not too bad. I am not looking forward to the super cold weather on Monday though. :P

Is it Spring yet?

I hate ice more than snow. Had an accident on black ice that left me paranoid about driving in any ice.

Well, I'm snowed in! And I'm going nowhere, because my driveway is very long, very twisty, and on a hill - and it is also currently a very long, very twisty sheet of ice. Combine that with a car that has already proven it doesn't know the first thing about four-wheel drive, and I'm definitely staying inside today.

Most people don't have chains if they will only use them a few times during the winter. :P

I got to try out my new winter boots this week. I give them 5 stars! My feets stayed warm and dry. The wool socks helped. :D

Feel better, Calma! That's an order!

Well, the snow's mostly gone by now, at least on the driveway! But I must say, that if officially all the snow I need: any more, and I'm boycotting Winter.

Feel better, Calma!

As per the change in the thread title.... should we remember Star Trek this month? We used to do MoST during February, but it wasn't the same once rowan was gone. :(

I would love to have another MoST but, if it is Trek, I'm down with it. ... :wink: :D
