    how about you?

    Any snow at all is more than I want, but these grey, frigid days are sapping my enthusiasm to do anything.

    Here in Salem, MA we just hit 45 degrees -- positively balmy. But we're still covered in a blanket of snow and ice that's about 4 to 6 feet thick. It has been brutal, especially for folks who use public transportation (not to mention the homeless, people with disabilities, etc.). I've been in this region for nearly 30 years, and this is the worst winter I've ever seen.

    So yeah, I'm pretty sick of it :).

    Yeah, we're struggling with the weather here too! It's been in the '70's to the mid '80's. Clear as a bell! Southern California has it bad. :) Can't even get any rain. Basically don't even get a Winter!:eek:
    (Feeling sorry for me yet?)

    Nominally, yes. But I didn't grow up with football, so it's hard for me to get too excited about it.

    The Red Sox, though, is a different story.

    Agreed. My son was happy that he had no school last week because of the snow. The climate swings the past two days in the DC Metro area have been crazy. Yesterday, 8-10 inches of snow...cars stranded on the highway. Today, 43 degree temps, roads cleared. So strange. Two hour delay for schools in our county.

    Geez! To me it's a big deal if I ever have to put on long pants! Mostly have all shorts! And tshirts and sandals and that's it! If it ever got under 40 degrees, people would freak! It has, but only once or twice a year if that! :D
    I honestly don't know how anyone could deal with all that cold and snow. It's beyond comprehension.

    My daughter wants to attend a very specific college. It is located in NY state.... The average yearly snowfall is 88".... And the night time temps are about 5 degrees for 2 months a year.... She's not right in the head! #

    Yep you've got it good, living on a fault line area rather than snow and ice.:D

    I love winter and snow, but I could do without the bitter cold we've been getting recently. The main reason though is not due to me being out in it, rather that our old house is not proving up to the task. We are burning through heating oil at an alarming rate.

    Yup, I'd much rather deal with one episode that hits maybe every 20-25 years, and if and when it does hit, L.A. is so sprawled-out the chances of it affecting me at ALL are pretty low. Sweet! Yeah, I'll take that anytime, and all year EVERY year the weather is the best in the entire world! Not even an opinion, it's a fact. Everyone here laughs at the rest of the countries' weather and the meteorologists on TV feel guilty by saying day after day it's clear, warm, and beautiful! :D
    Life is good indeed! I'd never wanna live anywhere else!

    That would be nice to visit for a week, but I like the change of seasons.

    Here in Utah, where winter/snow usually starts in October/November and can last until like June (in the mountains snow sometimes remains until July), we've only had a few days of snow and some days that feel like summer. It seems pretty great until you realize that that snow is where most of our water comes from, so we'll have a drought to look forward to.
