    We have collective amnesia up here. When March rolls around, people say, "Thank God, spring is just a few weeks away"

    And then on April 15 we get dumped on with 10 centimetres of the stuff. And every year we forget.

    Ou sont les neiges d'antan?

    There's a 60 percent chance of snow here today ... perfect time to work on a college baseball preview package. :)

    It's been butt-nipple cold here lately, too. Actually feels like winter, which I'm OK with. I was concerned a few weeks ago when I was playing golf in shorts in mid-January.

    Amen brother.

    I'd take six inches of snow over 1 inch of freezing rain/sleet, which is what we normally get down here.

    Centimetres? centimetres? What the fuck is a centimetres? We need inches, buddy, inches! /douchebag American who doesn't understand we're the fucked up nation who decided the world was wrong when it comes to metrics.

    10 cm = 6 inches. Give or take. You're welcome.

    Only really big snow I've seen was in 1993. 19 inches in 24 hours. Haven't reached the piont where I need any more. My kids, on the other hand, were crestfallen when they did not get a snow day today.

    Double J - Here's my reason for not taking all your snow away (above).
    My southern-snow-shoveling muscles have all shriveled up. Gone. Kaput. Hasta La Vista, Cest La View, shit.

    We have lots of icey-rain. And a little bit o' snow. When will it go away? Tired of it all ready and it fell this morning.

    I would like fuerte to head to the store and give us an update on the milk/bread stocking situation. Unless I miss my guess, there's not a jug or loaf to be found.

    Beer and cigarettes are probably running low as well.

    What is this snow of which you speak?

    There have been a few white particles falling out of the sky on two or three occasions this winter in the NYC area, but I don't remember what this "snow" actually is.

    ;D :D

    It's really a hair under four. (2.54 cm to an inch.)

    I have a buddy in Huntsville. He's Canadian. He e-mailed me yesterday poking fun at the news coverage of this. He said it was hilarious watching the news reporters freezing outside reporting on the weather.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention. He lived in Alabama when we were just out of high school. I went down to visit. It was snowing SLIGHTLY. His dad called and told him to "stay home and don't dare drive the car."
