    Unhappy Oh snow...Where did you go?

    Anyone besides me frustrated at the lack of snow with all these brutal cold temps? I still have 2" or so from the last storm left, but this is nuts. At least if there was another 1' or 2' of snow on the ground this cold might be worth it.

    I suppose the plus side is free refrigeration...amazing how fast a six pack cools down when plopped down outside in 15-20deg with 20mph winds...

    Last year we have over 150 inches of snow....... So far this year we only have about 40 so we too are way down...... but its been darn cold...it has not gotten above 15 degrees in the last two weeks.....

    I think maybe the government should look into this global cooling problem. :)

    Agreed...I've been saying it for a long time now. If our pal Al can make a fortune off of Global Warming...why can't I make a fortune off of Global Cooling?

    I could use some global warming. I'll take new beachfront over snow drifts any day. It's just the prospect of bitter cold with nothing but frostbite to show for it that really sucks right now.

    We're in the deep freeze. It's supposed to get down to 20 degrees below zero tonight.

    And tomorrow, we're supposed to get another 4 to 6 inches on top of the foot and a half we got in the last 10 days.

    And to make things worse, some freakin' maggot stole both of my snow shovels.

    I am so pissed!

    I'd be happy to get some of that export business myself. Just shoveled off half the roof yesterday, because the drifts (3+ feet in places) were looking too heavy & we're expecting another half a foot tomorrow, w/ the possibility of blizzard-like winds.

    So if you'd like some more white stuff, your friends in Minnesota would be pleased to send you some!

    We have about 15" on the ground here in Cortland OH. My dad lives an hour up the road just outside of Meadville PA. They've had 44 inches on the ground in the last 3 days with 4-8 more tonight and more later this week. I talked to him on the phone tonight and he's had to shovel off his roof three times already this year. The snow gets high enough to cover your furnace exhaust and you can get sick breathing in the CO.
