    We are supposed to get SNOW starting mid-afternoon with overnight accululations of up to 3 inches! WHOOO-HOOOO! I dont' remember the last time we had "real" snow here! Will probably get to close the office & go home early as they are already issuing traffic advisaries and all of us have to cross bridges and overpasses to get home.
    I hope we get enough to build a snowman! This 53 yr old will be out there playing!

    (If you think this is pathetic to get this excited, I can tell you, last time it snowed enough to stick, we went & stood in the ditch in front of our house & took a picture so it' looked like we were standing in "deep snow", lol).

    It snows more frequently here than it does there... enjoy it while you have the chance. [​IMG]

    I lived in Lafayette Louisiana for one year and it was the year that Illinois had the worst snow storms! man, we missed out the fun!

    Enjoy the snow! I bet the fire ants would be digging deeper to get away! I am not sure how the snakes and crocs will handle this, depending on where you are at.

    Kids loved it. They were out at 10:00pm last night playing in it.
    I was in bed by then. My oldest daughter's yorkie didn't
    know how to react when we let her outside but then
    like the kids she did not want to come inside.

    Last time it snowed here was 1989... next expected snow according to local wisdom (correct for last 300 years) will be approx 2089 +/- 5
