It snowed here (Toronto and area) from midnight until about 2 pm... not as exciting for me as a have a fairly large driveway (10 car) and NO snowthrow machine .. ugh. I could use a treat now!

One of the ladies at my former church in the Las Vegas area showed us how to make snow cream - yum!

Had to go to the mountains to get the snow, though.....

We're awaiting a series of storms here that are supposed to dump between 5-10 feet of snow in the mountains - hope we get plenty on the valley floors, too.

Happy New Year to everybody! May all your hopes and dreams come true in 2008!

Sheri Ras.

Getting a hard frost and 27 degrees here tonight. Got all the bed linens draped on the more sensitive outside plants. Another one tomorrow night. After that, back to the 60s and sunny, with NO BUGS! Best time of year to be here.

It's pretty in pictures and fun for ten minutes but I don't miss snow one little bit.

We have a ton of snow. No shoveling or snowthrowing here. We have a Ford 9N tractor with a bucket on the front and a blade on the back or we'd never get out of the driveway. Some neighbors way up on the hill called us because the snow drifted in several places of their driveway about waist high. Scott went up to help them but almost buried the tractor.

My daughter and I went to the mall today and the entire parking lot was compacted snow and ice. I tried to get her to hold my hand but she said no way because I would fall and take her down with me. And she said if I fell on my butt she was going to laugh. About 3 seconds after that, she landed right on her butt. And heck yes, I laughed.

I'm ready for summer.

The wind chill here in Tennessee is 17 wind chill, and supposed to get to 15 without wind chill. It snowed big snow flakes here this afternoon, but not for long, and didn't stick on the ground. It was really pretty to watch, but glad I didn't have to get out in it. The snow ice cream sounds good, Vickie & Lodi! I imagine Kaleb would really like! I'm ready for Spring too!!!

I guess we're making snow cream. Thanks for suggesting it.

I'll let you know how it goes.

OK, made the snow cream. Daughter loved it, son didn't, husband said it was ok. I put some in a glass and poured rootbeer over it and it made a fab rootbeer float.

It's supposed to be below 20 here at night the next two days. I'm surprised the state is still open!

Snow cream sounds great. I never did the homemade ice cream thing. I keep trying to get mt niece to make ice cream in coffee cans. Maybe next summer.

Surrey, UK is forecasted for snow tomorrow.
Almost unbelievable - it just doesn't happen here any more!
Proves there's climate change of some sort afoot. We always had snow during the winter in my chldhood during and after WWII.

How much do you remember about WWII?

Surreyman  (Level: 274.8 - Posts: 2776)

A surprising amount, actually.
The continual bombing (and our ceilings cracking from some), dogfights, air raid sirens and shelters, barrage balloons, doodlebugs, bloody noisy anti-aircraft guns right outside my house, a POW camp nearby, my father coming home (invalided out), a German aircraft strafing our high street on one occasion, etc., etc.
I did a quiz on it a million years ago, if you can find it!

Lots of snow here in the Great White North (LOL) - In Montreal, we've had three big blizzards so far, and it snows just about every day to keep it nice and white. Shoveling is now part of my everyday routine. I am looking forward to May (only 5 more months).

My family visited us here in Orlando over the Christmas holidays and we all went swimming. Now it's freezing -- or at least it was last night and could be tonight as well. Feeling sorry for the orange grove farms right now.
