    I Hate Snow!

    It's snowing so hard... the prediction is that we'll get 8-18 inches depending on where we live here in Anchorage, which means Kenai will get more (so glad I'm not there right now ha ha)

    my house will probably get over a foot of snow by the end of this yuck :sheesh:

    I don't like THAT much snow either, Toni. We got dumped on a few weeks back...somewhere near a foot....too much for me! Hubby can't shovel because of his back, had to pay $45 to get our driveway plowed, had to clear a spot on the lawn for my dog to potty in! Give me an inch or so at a time, with time for it to melt before the next snowfall! It's been rather mild here of late in NJ, hope it stays that way!

    I feel sorry for you, although you must be used to snow. I used to like snow when I lived in the north, but at times it got old. Now I live where it never snows except in the mountains. So I am very spoiled now, and I would probably avoid living where it snows a lot. I hope things get easier for you.

    Toni,

    I hate the cold white stuff too. The good news, though, winter is half over and spring is coming. Then we'll have rain and mud.

    Toni:

    I can appreciate how you feel. I have lived in Prince George as well as Calgary, AB and Edmonton, AB. Snow, snow, snow.

    Believe it or not here in Lotus Land, we had a "surprise" snow storm last week!!! The weatherman did not even see it coming. We do not get a lot of snow here, but it has been known to snow in February. Usually it hits on Valentines day. Snow always creates traffic havoc here, because most people are not prepared and do not know how to drive in it. We are much better off with our usual rain - which is what we have today.

    Hope your weather improves.

    I think snow is beautiful, for some reason I am really enjoying it this winter. It hasn't really snowed here that much though. I know I am usually tired of it by March though and ready for spring. 8-18" is alot to get in one storm, how did it turn out anyway?

    Tonichelle,

    I used to love snow because of its beauty and serenity but after I moved to Arizona, I have not missed it. You really should move to a warmer place (like AZ, for example), at least in winter. It's gorgeous here (40-70 deg.)!

    Vash... if I wasn't 20, attending college, and poor as a church mouse I might move lol There'd be more chance of seeing skating... but it's cheaper for me to stay in state and go to school... and besides, we get paid to live here. Seriously! Every October we get paid out of oil revenues for being State residents It's awesme

    Wow! I should consider moving there to get paid!

    I heard the salaries are pretty high too. It may not make up for the weather though.

    I don't know how our salaries compare. My dad made pennies when he worked in sporting goods (post some stupid political decisions that I have ranted plenty about lol) but makes tons now that he's got one of them gov'ment jobs

    if I'm not mistaken min. wage up here is $8+... but I could be wrong. In '03 it was $7.90, as that's what I was making an hour and I was min. wage. I am not working right now ( :sheesh: ) so I don't know what the exact rate is... I here some parts of the US it's still at 6 something

    I also like snow, just not ice. I can ski and burn off calories, or build a snow fort. Maybe I should move to Alaska. I heard there's also plenty of available men there, too.
