    No snow right now for Dallas. It was a beautiful day today. About 70 degrees. It snows maybe 1 or 2 days, and like Eden said, only speckles. That's fine with me. That's all the snow I need to see.

    I live in Fort McMurray. I can tell you about snow and cold for long periods of time.

    It does get warmer here, though. Was it ever colder than -40 while you were in Antarctica?

    The coldest I've ever known it where I live was -42, that does include the windchill though.
    Without that I think it was about -30.
    Thankkfully that was only for a couple of days though, then it was back to -10 to -15 still cold but obviously not nearly as bad.

    We got about 5 inches today. It took me an hour and half to get to work and an hour to drive home (it's normally a half hour drive) because no one in Detroit remembers how to drive in snow from snow fall to snow fall. It's snowing again, I hope it occurs to them to plow and salt the roads tonight.

    We got about 5 minutes worth of sleet tonight.

    this made me laugh so freakin' hard! i was talking on the phone to my mom today and she said, "i hear that there is a chance of "weather" for either tomorrow or the day after. make sure you have enough food in the house."

    she's wonderful. i've heard this so many times in my life in dallas that it doesn't even compute anymore. until i read it in eden's post, i didn't even think about how funny it is!
