    I just popped your member-map -- yeah, you're deep in Doctor Foster country (where I spent several hours stuck on a motorway in the summer). It's pretty mild over here in Essex.

    In Philly all we got was sleet, which takes all the fun out of it.

    I'm jealous of the snow.

    I was wearing shorts today, it was a record 86F.

    Personally, I never understand how people can like snow.

    It's cold, it's wet. It sticks to the bottom of my pants and shoes when I walk in it, and makes them cold and wet. Shoveling it makes my back hate me, scraping it off my car makes me late for work, and driving in it makes me even more late for work. And after a brief day or two of looking pretty from inside a warm a building, it turns to muddy brown sludge that is STILL cold and wet with all the same pitfalls.

    I grew up in Buffalo, NY. People always say to me, "Well you're used to it, aren't you?!" Hell no. I've had enough snow to last me my whole goddamn life.

    But I admit, when I walked outside and saw that last year, I just laughed. What else could I do? Mother nature flipped me off and kicked me in the tit with a healthy "Fuck you, snow can kick your ass so much worse, so stop bitching."

    So I moved across the world to a city with no snow . . . and no indoor heating. And I can still hear the bitch laughing. :)

    The skies have torn open here. Everything--school, work, streets--shut down. To my tired eyes, the clouds have an odd orange tint, perhaps from the streetlights. In the distance, a foghorn blares.

    Must get back to my Lethem book.

    I love that overcast look when the sky looks grey and the air feels orange from the streetlights and the air's heavy and closed in on itself. It makes the world feel heavy and depressing and beautiful.

    Now you yanks get to feel what it's like here in Canada. We're only nice because we've succumbed to cabin fever and believe we're in a happy place.

    we got shit here in Boston, It snowed like 2 inches and in now raining and turning to shit-slush that will make my walk to campus today annoying. it was great before the rain started. I'm hoping for some real snow when we get down into serious winter. December here always feels like a warm up for the serious winter month until January and February.

    I love snow and cold weather in general, it's like every time you go outside and it's 10 degrees F and windy you have to fight with nature, light a fire in your belly and get ready to kick some ass JUST TO STAY COMFORTABLE. maybe I'll move to Canada just so it's colder more often. I'm generally unhappy when it gets above 60F.

    My wife and I drove through freezing rain turning to sleet turning to snow on Saturday. 45 mph down the interstate, white-knuckled as crazy 18-wheelers blew past covering us with snow from the unplowed left lane. Got home and thought it was over, but no, Sunday I got to dig the car out. Thankfully I don't have to work today and can convalesce.

    I guess it was a good idea to dig the car out, it's currently 16F and the slush I shoveled would have otherwise entombed it 'til spring.

    It was nothing but rain all day yesterday here in Indianapolis, which then turned into rain AND bitter cold. So there's ice patches all over the place. No snow yet tho.

    Snow should only be seen through a window whilst standing by a fireplace supping brandy.

    Here in the winter wastelands of the northern tip of the mitten that is MIchigan its been blizzarding on and off. I feel like i've shoveled a literal ton of snow to get myself out of teh driveway between yesterday and today.

    All the schools in the area are closed...why can't my office be?

    I seem to like winter weather less and less as i get older. My theory is there's much more shoveling and much less sledding blast it all.

    The ability to enjoy snow is a luxury reserved for those of you who've never truly experienced it.

    Whereas I'm from Alaska, and I can say without fear of contraction: Fuck snow.

    And apparently nature is agreeing with me this year. I'm in Anchorage, and two weekends back all the snow melted. Gone. It's crazy and bizarre. And until today it's been fairly warm out. Now it's 16 F and a bit windy, and I get to freeze my face off waiting for the hourly bus to work that I already missed once.

    Portland, I miss you. The Old Country can suck it.

    Yeah we got some cold weather and some slushy snow here in south eastern Pennsylvania. It was pretty pathetic. Today was crazy windy though, I thought I was going to blow away there for awhile.

    My house is currently shaking from the wind. I think I am going to lose a window or two tonight. The rattling won't let me sleep.
