How 'bout that storm!!!

That was a pretty good one. I like how much we got in so little time. A dusting last night then ten inches this morning! I know it won't be the last either. Work was delayed until 10 a.m. this morning. Snow may suck because we can't ride but going back to bed for an extra hour or 2 on a random Wednesday morning kicks ASS!!!!! I bet Florida and Cali don't do that.

How about you guys? Everybody make it in on time today? Anybody get a snow day? How much accumulation did you get?

Snow, Ha! Now that's funny.

Although it is supposed to drop into the high 20's tonight.

^ Hey Floridian, why are you in the NORTHEAST section! Stick to the Southeast where you belong!!! LOL!!!

I'd rather it be 29 and snow covered than 29 and not. You can't ride either way but in our case we get random days off and remarkable beauty. You just get cold.

I saw a weather map today depicting snow on the ground and Florida was the only state in the Union with out some snow even Hawaii had snow on the highest volcanic mountain peaks.Where's Al Gore when we need him? That was sarcasm ,I really don't care where he is.

Kanuck, that was spoken with the enthusiasm of a true Canuck!

are you sure you're not quoting the weatherman's girlfriend?

ZING! we got a light dusting when i was going to work (5 a.m.) and about 3 1/2 inches when I was leaving (5 p.m.). So I kinda had to do a double take
when I opened the door to leave. Now we only have about 4 inches but the roads are fine.
