    The U.K really makes me laugh when it snows, we've had 4-5 inches of snow in the town where i live and the place has all but ground to a halt! All schools and colleges are closed and most of the super markets are crammed with people bulk buying bread and milk "just incase" we get snowed in!!

    Dont' talk to me about this: I was meant to be flying to the US but the trains were too unreliable to use and I had to change my flight for $250 as US Air don't cancel flights. Just no-one can get on them becuase the trains don't work

    I should be flying to FL at the moment. icon_sad.gif

    The last time I saw real snow and touch one was in 1991. I cant believe how much I miss it. Hopefully I be able to organize a trip to those colder country and see winter wonderland again. At office someone is organizing a trip to South Korea during spring time. I flatly refuse simply because I cant see snow during that times, But I probably would have say yes if the trip is during winter time when the chance of seeing snow is greater.

    Hey Guys,
    Living in Montreal is a blast with thesnow. We have had over 9 feet of snow this year, and it just keeps getting better. Our snow crews have worked for seven days straight, and are forced to take a day off despite the fact that the work isn't done ! Gotta love MTL during the winter, the Old Port is beautiful and the skiing is amazing ! Not to mention La cabane a sucre!! YUM!

    I agree, I did not think it was one of Ang Lee's better films. icon_biggrin.gif

    Don't hurry, we're having a bit of a cold snap, temps in the 60s for a few days. This Sat, 7 Feb, begins a promised week of mid to upper 70s.

    BTW, anytime anyone is planning to visit Fort Lauderdale, please email me for tips & links. I love being an ambassador for our community. And meeting me and my partner is purely optional.

    Aren't you guys lucky? I grew up in a place where it required not only four feet of snow, but also a temperature of less than -19.9F in order to get a day off from school. icon_razz.gif

    I'm with flex89, 4-5inches of snow isn't even worth noticing. Nothing closes down here unless it's the apocalypse of winter storms. And it was -25 or less for weeks.

    It is snowing right now in Boston. I moved here in October, 2008. I must say these New Englanders get out and about anyway.

    Well this is nothing by our Northeastern standards.

    I heart snow.

    What a lot of you yankees fail to realize is that these places that close down at the first sign of snow, close down because they don't have the equipment and salt to manage the snow accumulations; therefore, the risk of being on the roads is significantly higher than in the northern US. Down in the South, at least in Louisiana, we have to use sand on the bridges as an alternative to salt. We don't invest in snow removal because it hardly ever snows.
