But the big system that's gonna hit the east coast is supposed to give us 3 or 4 inches, which is more than enough to cancel school here. Everyone down here freaks out way too much about snow.


lol! I was in Norfolk, VA last week. They had a winter storm advisory on Monday and were predicting 3-5 inches. MInd you this was just a prediction. They closed all Norfolk and Virginia Beach schools on Tuesday and we didn't get 1 flake! Overreaction, but on their behalf they are not equipped to handle that much snow on their roads either.

Looks like a big ice storm headed our way Tuesday. :-P

Snow is fun, ice stinks. :~(

Two inches of snow, and school is canceled. And with sleet and freezing rain in the forecast for tonight, I'd put our chances of school tomorrow at about 2%.

Ah, I love our area's incompetence with regards to snow removal.

you must be on the Northwest side of STL. We have at least 4 inches of snow/ice this side of the river...a little east and a little south of STL. No school, no work (with the exception I'm working from home) ;-D :-D

Shoveled the freakin driveway twice to be able to get out and then back in...whoever decided to build this steep driveway should be commited ... :-P

338 car accidents between 3 PM and 9 PM tonight in Fort Worth. Put a little sleet/freezing rain out there and us Texans don't know what to do when driving on that strange, weird, unusual, wet, frozen stuff. :-b

Kiddo has a snow day tomorrow though as it's only going to get worse the rest of the evening. Supposed to get into the 40's tomorrow afternoon, so he will only get the one day off. :-b
