ObIhateyou: I hate you.

It generally doesn't snow in coastal Oregon, and the closest we usually get to snow is usually a round of freezing rain. I am green with envy.


That's beautiful! Living in a suburb of Chicago, we got around 7 inches of lovely snow yesterday! It has since stopped, but I was once again thinking how nice it was to have winter weather in December. Maybe we won't have it in April this year!


Your snow is a lot prettier than the sleet and slush we're getting here this morning. Wish I was there!


That's the kind of scene that makes me want to live where it snows. Not enough to leave Hawai'i, but nonetheless...



All we got here in Texas was ice. And car accidents. Lots of car accidents.

You'd think that having grown up in New England I'd be used to and enjoy - if not LOVE - the snow.

You'd be wrong. Especially if you had my commute home tonight (mostly on foot).


I showed my son this picture - I shouldn't have, he decided we should go back to MI for the snow there, so we could play at grandma and grandpa's house. At least we can drive up to the snow here - I got chains and the emergency kit, we go sledding this weekend. . .We went through the Columbia River Gorge last weekend and got within 100' of the snow elevation - he thought it was great but then decided we should hike up to it - that would not have worked very well where we were, oh the fit he had about that. But now we have chains. . .It was 47 degrees and sunny today in Portland. . .

Exiled in NJ

You bring back the day after Christmas 2002 when I came home to my mansion upstate and found 31 inches against the front door. Another 25 inches after New Years and we did not see the ground again until April.


That's beautiful. I thought you were in the Bay area?

res publica

All we got here in Texas was ice. And car accidents. Lots of car accidents.

To be precise, 2 square inches of ice on some overpass, and approximately 5,892,305 accidents. Or maybe that was just San Antonio.

What a gorgeous picture, Lance! I've lived in south Texas for 15 years now, and in general, I don't miss cold winters...but that makes me think about it for a quick second.

The Heretik

Ah, the monotone of a snowy day, the muffled silence, but for the wind. You would think this was a black and white photo but for the red of the stop sign. Snow growing deeper, good enough reason to enjoy the wonders of home.


Wow. And we gripe if it rains two days in a row....(I live near San Francisco)


Nice snowfall...I didn't realize how much I'd missed snow the last few years until I moved up to DC and we got about 3 inches the other night. It really is kind of nice.


It was time for him to set out on his journey to the 7-11 for some milk and TP. Yes, it looked like those chuckleheads over 't WRSN finally got it right: Snow was general all over New England. It was falling all over the consarned place. Snow, snow, snow. Falling. Everywhere. (Put something foofy in here about the dark mutinous Nova Scotia waves or something.) The danged stuff was falling, too, on the garage where his Plymouth Fury was in for repair, probably never see it again. He belched softly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead. And the squirrels. Don't forget the squirrels.
