    We have been enduring a winter blizard storm now for 2 days and also one day befour that of just moderate snow. For 2 days now its been zero visabilaty/white out, with high winds, snow non stop and temps that really droped quickly the teens to zero with the wind chill factor. JR went out and snowblowed our 2 track drive way the best he could, till he just couldnt see or breath anymore. We herd these conditions are supose to lastanother day then just have lake effect snows off and on. Yes we are very use to this sort thing durring winter as we are in the snowblet area. Has anyone else been getting blasted with this storm?? I belive it was headed the NY way.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    I know Oswego NY got blasted with at least a foot of snow.

    It was so warm here today I had the back door open. Tomorrow is supposed to be chilly but then its warming up to the 60s for the coming week. Normally I'd be rather disappointed because I LOVE snow. But this year with all the dire predictions about the cost of natural gas for heat, I'm relieved. I have yet to cut my heat on. Its been a little chilly in the house some nights but mostly its been tolerable.

    We had 3", just enough to shovel, and my mother-in-law on the northern border of VT was expecting a lot more than that. But I just finished talking with my brother-in-law in Seattle and he said WA's Mt. Baker averages 50+ ft of snow every winter and had ~100 ft one year. They win.

    Barracuda_45, your story about the blizzard brought back memories.
    I live in nice warm sunny San Diego, Ca., home of the Chargers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    I am originally from Detroit, Mich, where the Lions got beat real bad today, again. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
    Back in '78 my parents went to Las Vegas and left my older sister and I behind (real nice parents). Anyways, while they were out in Vegas, we had a real bad blizzard up there that lasted like 5 or 6 days with temps down in the -20 range. Snow up to the roof. The power and gas went out and we had no heat or nuthin. Lucky for my sister and I, I had a friend that lived on the next street over. He invited us to stay there until the power came back on. Their house had a fireplace and a huge pile of wood out back. We just sat there all bundled up in sleeping bags and piles of blankets by the fireplace for 4 or 5 days. A week later my parents came back from their trip and learned of our ordeal. They never knew about the blizzard until they returned.
    I have been contemplating moving back to Detroit, I kinda miss the snow, and the affordable cost of living, unlike here.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Wow CNCreefer, thats some ordeal you went thru when you was younger with your sis, yes Michigan is very cheap and affordable when it comes to housing and living. Although you were from Detroit which is alittle more costly than where im at and yes they have some pretty bad times durring winter down there its not like where we live, it can be sunny and 60% in Detroit and up here 40 and nasty out. We cant stand city life and all the hussle and bussle that goes with it we live in the woods far back in off the main highway road no city or anything which we love it here dearly and would never go back to city life no matter what yes we do have to put up with some very awful winters and some crazy summer weather as well but i wouldnt change it for the world. JR and i ever get rich enough we plan on moving further up the the UP in a even more remotely wooded area with NOOOOOOOOO neighbors.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Even though i hate winter the snow is absolutely breath taking in the woods and besides i hibernate durring winter. LOL!! The summers can be very very beautiful up here and fall with the pretty colors...
