Sorry I opened my big mouth. We were suppose to just have flurries this AM but I woke up to about 3 inches of snow and it is still coming down!! Might have a big storm on Friday. We will wait and see. For once I am rooting for spring too. I usually don't mind the winter but this year it is too much even for up here in Maine. Anybody else having a snowy winter?
We are in the midst of yet another storm. We were suppose to just get a dusting to 1" then sleet, freezing rain, etc. Right now (6AM) we have about 4". School is a two hour delay which is awesome since it will count as a school day and we get to go in late.
Julie are you getting all snow where you are? Crazy weather in Maine. More storms this week.
UGH! You know it, Dorothy! Snow, snow, and more SNOW. I have to venture out into this in a few minutes....I have an appointment for a car alignment. Then I'm coming back home and just hiding inside all day!! Thank goodness I didn't have to work today! I'm so tired of shoveling this stuff.
Not sure how much we're up to now, but ugh! I'm surprised they didn't call your school off for the entire day, Dorothy, but I'm sure in the end the less days to be made up the better. My sister teaches the 4th Grade and she was saying that there has been talk at her school about making up the days on Saturdays....she said it's doubtful they would actually go that route but it didn't impress her that they even brought the idea up in the first place.

Well Julie, they did finally call school, so I do have a snow day, thank goodness, I hate driving on slippery roads. So far we have 3 snow days, not too bad. Saturdays, wow, I don't think too many parents would go for that. Interesting though.
Yesterday, Thursday, we had yet another storm. We got about 6/7 inches, all the schools around me had a 2 hour delay or a closing, except for the one I work in. Two more storms coming in the next 5 days. We may break the record for snowfall in one year!!
Julie how's it going where you are. Do you live in Southern Maine like me? You don't have to mention the town.
It gets better Janet, now we are freezing on top of all the snow. The wind chill makes it about -12*F this AM. We are getting more snow Tues. into Wed. I hope we do not have a snow day as my school is planning a field trip to see a play about Henry and Mudge, cute book series about a boy and his dog. Anyway I am home today since my daughter had the flu, burning 102*F all weekend. Take care of that leg and get better soon.
I heard NY got quite a bit of snow. I remember a big storm (about 20 inches) and the bank I worked at would not close early. We were open until 8PM, finally at 6:00 they said we could close at 7:00. I lived 3 blocks from work and it took me about 45 minutes to walk home because the snow was so deep and no one had shoveled yet as it was still snowing!!
Up here we are getting another storm Tues. into Wed. 4-8 inches, I have no clue where we will put it. In my area they do not remove snow because it is so rural but we have so much there is no room left!
This wk they said we were gonna get it thank god we didn't like last wk..whew..I HATE snow..thank god we turn the clocks next weekend and it'll be lighter later..just can't wait for spring..although still in this cast now and can't do much now anyways.. ...I just want the warm weather here..if I hit the lotto so buying a nice beach house somewhere:)
Well we get yet another snow storm on Sat. about 8 more inches. We are well over 100" of snow for the season, not a record breaker yet. I am so tired of snow. Normally I love all four seasons but this year for the 1st time winter is making me a bit blue. I think we will have patches of snow until June! It must be about 3 or 4 feet deep in my yard. I left Florida because........?
Yes, we may get rain instead of a wintery mix!! Never thought I would be thrilled about a rainy saturday. Many roofs are collapsing up here from the weight of the snow and ice. Schools too! Scary. Fortunately none have happened while people were inside.
