    New Englanders, I have to tell you, I miss it. I love snow and winter sports. In Nebraska it gets very cold and windy, but not much snow. We are still in a sever drought. So although I get to stand out in -10 with windchill making -30 or worse, I do not get the fun. Oh, I remember the snow shoeing and cross country skiing *sigh* Well, a least we have the retirement land in Minnesota. Hopefully we get a cabin built prior to retirement. I have a waaaayys to go for that.

    I remember an 8' snow in Chelmsford, Mass.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Yeah, the Bay Area has had it good this winter. We've had a few minor freezes, but no big thing. I am from the Big Sky country though, and snow there drifts at 30' (in certain places) with snowfall burying houses occasionally, wind chills to -60 degrees. Glad I left when I did. We will be breaking dormancy naturally this year around mid-March or mid-April. It is good to have a long growing season, and glad I am not in Montana, with relatives in South Dakota, or Copper-land (Nebraska), though I love those states too.

    I'm ready for Spring now too. I like winter when we get snow, but these past 3 weeks of teens and low 20's highs and single digit lows and like 20 mph winds with no snow have made me ready for spring. It's 13 deg. out right now and it's 3 o'clock in the afternoon! It is suppose to snow today and tonight though. I think an inch today and 1-3" overnight. I haven't checked my cps in my bog outside for like a month since the straw on top has been frozen solid and i can't move it. I hope my plants in it aren't frozen solid too!!

    According to Accuweather the temps in the northeast will moderate toward the end of the week and should be slightly above normal the following week. In six months I'll be missing Lake Erie in my backyard acting as my refrigerator. In Reading it will be like my wedding day - 92 degrees with humidity to match it!
