I'd rather live with a foot of snow on the ground (with power), than to live in 80 degree weather in january. :-t

So that's where all the snow and ice went to this year! :-B

Seriously though, I live right by Pittsburgh, and I feel like I'm in the South :-t

That's really neat. Hopefully nobody was hurt without power or anything like that.
And here I was, thinking that I had seen everything by living in Michigan :-°

I was in Florida for the start of that storm and when we returned to Montreal we were one of the last cars they let through before they closed I-87 through the Adirondacks. I was travelling with my girlfriend and her family and when we got back I had to go and break out my car - I literally was POUNDING on the windshield with a steel shovel to break the inch-thick coating of ice... Needless to say I was none too impressed with my parents for leaving my car sitting there the whole time without at least starting it up a couple of times and letting the heat keep the ice from building up to quite that proportion... :-°

Yeah, that is pretty cool. We get ice storms about once a year, but nothing this serious usually. They're calling it a 100 Year Storm. But anyway I've seen trees where each twig is surrounded by 1/8th inch of ice, and it's pretty cool. Neat, neat stuff. Too bad it's so destructive when it's this thick.
