    We still haven't had any snow, to speak of, in Millinocket but we're up north for a couple of days, and there is snow here. Not a lot, though. We did have a dusting of snow one morning in Millinocket but all I had to do was turn away for a little bit and it all went away.

    The last two dire snow storm warnings we've received have amounted to little or nothing. So far, the only snow we've had that needed to be shoveled occurred while we were in Virginia, and my neighbor took care of that. We were supposed to have up to eight inches of snow last night, and we did get some, but not nearly that much. I'm waiting for someone to plow our driveway for us but was able to drive the car out of it without shoveling around it, so we got probably a couple of inches. Our house blocks most of the snow, so we don't get any drifting. Often, the worst problem we have is what the town leaves for us at the end of our driveway. We're supposed to have more on Christmas, but I wish they'd quit exaggerating every storm warning so that I can know what to actually prepare for. Usually, we get about a quarter or less what they say we're going to get.

    We're getting hit with a large snowstorm today. I woke up to find about four inches on my balcony, and it's still snowing heavily.

    Yes, but then it should melt.

    Snow on Christmas Eve accumulated about 2 inches on top of ice. :oops: I had just purchased two 50 pound bags of rock salt a couple of days before when I heard snow was in the forecast.

    When life hands you snow...make snow cones...and a snowman/snow person....make plenty of snow balls and have a snow ball fight. Make yourself and igloo, a snow fort, etc. Try to enjoy the snow....and ship us some. :)

    Not counting Canada (because, after all, who would count Canada), it looks like I win. The only upside to these temperatures is that it doesn't snow when it's this cold.

    Looks like this is going to be a Winter to remember for a lot of us! I'm going to the Library tomorrow and get plenty of books to read while it's so cold. We may even have snow again next Tuesday and that would be a record for us as far as I can remember.

    We are having pretty crappy weather here, with light rain, some wind and way to cold for us. IOW, it’s a Nor’easter.

    I will continue to say this..... this is FLORIDA and it’s suppose to be WARM with SUNSHINE here. What happened??? Bah Humbug!!

    You're still a lot warmer than the rest of the states! It's pretty darn cold in southern Illinois now too where my son lives...they usually have mild winters.

    They still have to wear coats etc but it's frigid there now.

    We're a tad chilly too but I went out to PT with what I had on in the house, didn't need to add anything..just slipped on my sketchers.

    I was wearing a lightweight hoodie and jogging style pants...after PT I even had to turn on the A/C in the car...I was sweating.

    All right! Who did it???????????????????????????????? Will the person who left the refrigerator door open and let all that cold air come south, please stand up. I want to give you a good smack. It's cold enough here to freeze the balls off of your Christmas tree.

    Well, he can just get his cold butt back up north where it belongs! We don't want his kind down here. :D

    I am SO with you on that, Shirley ! I don’t know who sent us all of this freezing cold either, but if you find them, I will sure enough help you give them “what-for”.
    It was barely above freezing here all day, and in the low 20’s at night. Our bedroom thermometer said it was 45 in our bedroom when I climbed out of bed this morning. I grabbed clothes and hurried into the living room and stood in front of the little electric heater to get dressed !

    We are supposed to get into the 30s tomorrow then 40s Saturday. Then not above freezing for a week or more. Do you suppose that it's @Ken Anderson 's fault? We could smack him.

    I think Chrissy should read these replies from the folks that live in southern states, like us. It’s not nearly as warm in these areas as she must think.

    Northern Florida is the coldest part of Florida this time of year, but a high of 47 or 51 is really ridiculous.
