My car's thermometer said -16F today.

Y'all don't know what winter is like.

Um, yeah we do... that's why we live HERE... where winter is only occasionally brutal, not 5 months brutal

See, that's the problem. What y'all are calling "Snowpocalypse," we call "Tuesday."

And my posting on here means we lose yet again. I think I need to stay away for a while.

We had almost 2 feet of snow in December and now it's almost completely melted.

What is this "melting" thing of which you speak?

We're at -25F right now up here in NCWI

I lived in a place where it was common to have 1-2 feet of snow and saw up to 3 feet as a child. I like a little here and there, but on the whole I am happy to live in a place like Nashville. I don't want to have to shovel my walkway or driveway. Lazy? Absolutely.

We had that stretch a few weeks ago when it was around 50 which melted a lot of it.

the only good thing about snow is it helps you for stories with the grandkids - like having to walk to school 5 miles in the snow, uphill, after doing chores....otherwise, the mason-dixon line is there as a guide to seeking a permanent location..

So I am stuck a Vanderbilt Hospital because of my father in laws heart surgery! UK plays VU tonight and the traffic is awful. On the plus side I finally tried Hattie B's and was impressed.

How about having to take a baked potato with you to school to keep your hands warm as you walked those 5 miles and that was your only food to have for lunch at school.

Sorry to hear about the surgery. Weren't you the anti-Hattie's guy? No matter how touristy it seems it's legitimately good IMO.

I didn't have to walk 5 miles but I had to walk a nearly 2 miles in the snow to high school.

We got wind chills of -50 out here last week! I feel like Fargo is essentially Winnipeg with less snow.

Considering what snow and ice do to Tennessee - especially in the hills - and how it's much more tolerable up here, I'm far more comfortable with this weather than I thought I would be.

I had to walk all the way to the bus stop across the road from my house. In a miniskirt. With boots with clunky heels. Or Candies.

It was brutal.

Okay, most of the time it was jeans and earth shoes, but it was technically possible.

I had a bus for middle school, which was a little over 3 miles away but not for high school.

We had to be at the bus stop at 8 because we were the first pickup on the route. We were also the last drop off, so we ended up getting home at 5. Since there was no recess in middle school, the only sun we got was in the morning.

The surgery went well, he is in intensive care but seems to be recovering well. Thanks
No I was never an anti Hatties guy. I had never had it before they became popular after I moved east.

I led a charmed life. I griped about it being early but quite frankly it could have been 10 AM and I'd have still been complaining. I've always been a night owl. Our bus served all grades and dropped kids off at all their schools. They all started at 8, so it would have been earlier than that, maybe 7? I don't remember getting home after dark even though I rode the second bus--I think we got there around 4. Now this was in Lewisburg from 8th grade til Junior year when we all got CARS. And then the fun began. When I lived in Richmond VA in elementary I did have to walk in deep snow to the bus stop, and it was farther away and earlier but I didn't care because we brought toys with us and played on the bus and before school. Skipper dolls, Hot Wheels and Creepie Crawlies were the hot items in Richmond VA circa 1966.

What sidewalks that disappear in winter? Murderous plow trucks? Wind that cuts through you like a slashing penalty and then stops to have a hobby as the 'world's worst weather on the top of Mt. Washington in NH?

I hope the milk and bread that everyone went out and stocked up on was good enough for the inch of snow we got Friday.

And hopefully no one had to be stuck inside afterwards with said milk and bread as the highs have been in the 50s and 60s all week.

I just walked to school for elementary because it was right down the street. No bus stop needed. All the kids in the neighborhood would get into snowball fights on the way home. One time a kid picked up what he thought was a snowball but it turned out to be ice. Hit me right in the face. Those were some fun times, the good old days if you will. Gah, now I'm reminiscing like an old person.

Let's face it, if I was 8 years old in 1966, I'm getting on up there. I know I don't act like it most times and I am as surprised by my advanced age as anyone.

I look at it like this, though--if I don't reminisce and tell how it was, it's going to be lost. I forget so much already. Someone has to have been told so they can remind me.

We have about a foot and a half of snow on the ground at the moment. Temps aren't going to be getting much over 12F for the next few days.

Driving to and from work last night was an adventure - and that was with the wife's AWD car.

It was 70 today. And probably will be tomorrow, too.

I mean, it's been cloudy and windy and it might even rain, so that 70 has a few drawbacks...
