    We are in the middle of a winter storm warning. Got 6 inches of snow already and supposed to get another 6. We got 3 inches of sleet and hail first and this snow is VERY heavy. The wind isn't helping much either. People are getting stranded even on our city streets (I live in a small rural town).

    Getting 3-6 inches today and maybe another 1-3 overnight.

    It bites - big time! I was ready for warmer weather and SUN!

    Well, it's nice here - for now. Went to lunch with husband and while waiting outside, started to sweat - in sun, long sleeves! About 70 degrees. Came out 45 minutes later - very windy, humid. We're going to get a humdinger of a storm very shortly. It's tornado season here... We had an F1 somewhere in the state already.

    It was nearly 80 yesterday. We had the first tornado watch of the season - thankfully no storms here. They are predicting snow for the weekend. Ahhh - spring on the plains.:holymoly:

    16" up here and still coming down. I hit ice yesterday, skidded out, and hit a tree. I'm fine other than a bit sore, but my poor car got its passenger side front end crunched. I was gonna have a loaner brought out here today but my driveway is full of snowdrifts, my snowplow service is running late, and there's no way to get in or out of the place right now.

    Argh-- snow AND thunderstorms! I am so sorry for you folks. My little sister in MN had snow and a thunderstorm the other day.

    We've just been having thunderstorms, in between perfect weather and beautiful blossoms. No in-between, just one or the other.

    Severe thunderstorm warnings here, but I think it passed over us. 54 DegreesF here now. It actually reached 70 yesterday here in Ohio!

    It's back to being cold here, have heard mention of expected snow but haven't seen anything yet. It might well pass us by. Hope everyone else stays safe and warm.

    It's nearly April and we haven't hit 60 degrees yet. We got over 80 about 4 times last year. It's so flippin' cold!

    We're in the same boat as Wendy. It was so messy this afternoon that all afterschool activities were cancelled. They postponed the Science Fair until next Tuesday; Duckie is bummed. :(

    I am SO sick of winter. There has been ONE nice day in NYC/LI area since the day before Christmas. I hate it - I want to live somewhere that NEVER has snow and is about 70 - 75 degrees every day. Anyone live in a place like that or know of one?

    Ummm.... Hawaii? You'd have to deal with hurricanes, tsunamis, volcanoes, and tourists, but the weather is beautiful (so Dad tells me, he was stationed there for 3 years).

    Well, Florida is hot as Hades in late summer and we do have hurricanes every few years but...I don't now how you guys survive the Winters especially when they spill over into Spring. I just can't imagine. DDD

    UGH. Can we PLEASE get back to Spring?!

    It was 66 degrees yesterday. By 11pm last night, it was 30 degrees and snowing furiously. We only got a dusting that "stuck", though.

    And we had hail, thunderstorms, and tornado watches earlier in the day, too.
