SNOW???!!! IN NEW ORLEANS!!!????

What is this white stuff falling from the sky? I opened the back door and my cat came running in, covered in snow. The other two looked outside and ran back inside. What a sight to see here!!!

It is absolutely remarkable down here. A couple of inches of the fluffy stuff. The entire city has shut down, all TV shows have been pre-empted and the Voice of Doom head of St. Tammany Parish just said "It is extremely dangerous outside; do not under any circumstances leave your home".

I have lived down here for 16 years and this is the second snow that I can remember. It's pretty funny, especially after getting a message from Slicko talking about trying to find his car one day.

It's really pretty and fun to see snow on my roses.

We live below the snow belt, so if a flake hits the air, the general public flies into a dead panic, buys out all the milk and bread and spread dire warnings of messy painful deaths if their loved ones attempt to drive. I wish we got more snow, the kind that sticks around for a while - we just get the cold and little of the fun stuff!

I just checked - our official snow total (since November 1) is 46.7 inches. Nothing has stopped, no school cancellations, not even any delays. How do we handle it? Same way the Russians do - Vodka.

York isn't as likely to match Erie and the snow belt areas of Pennyslvania in snowfall.
But- how do I handle it?

I play more Sploofus, eat peppermint patties and tell my wife to shovel off the sidewalks and backyard path for our dog.

Doesn't make for a quiet house around here.

I'll try vodlka next time.

I can't drink so I am presently working on a few Peppermint Patties. Can those be infused with vodka like you do with oranges? Technically, to me, it wouldn't be drinking.

I think you just hit on an excellent new product for the folks at York Peppermint Patty. First candy you'd ever have to show ID to purchase!

Well, our day of snow is over. You would never know we had any. It was pretty but reminded me of what I don't live in Wisconsin any more.

Gary - 43". Geez. You know, we have teaching hospitals down here.....

Not only did we get a foot of snow, the buses and trains went on strike.

I'm so glad you got to "enjoy" the snow for a day.

We had 8" of snow in Amarillo once, and the next day it was 85 degrees, melting it all by sundown.

Snow is a wonderful thing ... when you never get it.

The greatest snow I ever saw was four inches in an hour ... in Myrlte Beach, SC ... in May of 1983 or 84.

Dangest thing I've ever seen. It covered about a 30 block (2-mile long) area of the Strand. Didn't snow (or rain) a drop elsewhere.

And if you're into Vodka, see if the sotre carriesr Firefly ... vodka sweet tea. Tum!

I understand that F.E.M.A. will have snow plows down to you by July. Every year here in Springfield IL the local tv stations go nuts at the first big snowfall. The way they act it's the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse not 4 inches of snow.

I bet there was a high ratio of native WV residents in that 2 mile area and one of them was missing the snow and wished upon a star or something. I think we WV residents have staked claim to sections of Myrtle Beach over the years. Seems like every time I go there the owner of whatever hotel/motel/beach house was originally from WV.

I live in a N.O. suburb, and got 2-3" of snow.Unfortunatly I was at work so didn't have my camera to take pics. I read in the paper that the N.O. airport has only reported measurable amounts of snow 11 times since 1947.
