Wel, no snow here, not a single flake. N.C. got it all. In a way I'm a little disappointed. I know some of you will offer to send me yours. But we don't get much snow around here & I love it. Just not all the time.

I'm also in NC and we had a little tiny dusting of snow this morning and it was totally melted and gone by noon.
Gayle, I'm also a little disappointed. I was hoping for some real snow, not the minor dusting that didn't even cover the grass. I love snow, just not for 4-5 months out of the year. The reason I moved south to begin with.

Gretta, you're kidding. We have a place in Robeson County, also--at least until we can unload it on some unsuspecting person--and we are there this week. We had about two inches, maybe a little more. We are just a couple of miles from the SC border and this is the second time we've had any accumulation since we've owned this place. It is beautiful. It should be gone my mid day tomorrow but for now it is too cool. It started later north and down east. They were expecting more there than here but I haven't talked with anyone to find out.

Ellen, how was the storm? Not too bad I hope. I know you guys just don't have all the infrastructure we have around here to handle the harsh winter weather.
Tonight, it is yet again crazy cold. It is 5 below zero with wind chills at 26 below zero. It is supposed to be 15 below overnight with winds bringing it down to 35 to 40 below zero. You know, I have nothing against Canada, but they do not have to send us their arctic cold every other week...
OK, there is one cool thing about the cold: I went outside with wet hair to start up the car today, and my hair froze solid between the house and the car (about 10 feet...we do not have a garage). My kids got a kick out of it, so I went back out to freeze my hair again! That was quite fun!

Servanne, you have to love the weather here. It is so unpredictable. It snowed in Eastern NC most of the day Tuesday which is rare. We got about 3 inches and all of it was gone by noon Wednesday. Today it was in the 60's.

My husband told me, I don't know if its true or some sick MN humor, but if you go outside when its 20 below or colder (I don't know if wind chill counts) with wet hair your hair can freeze and break off.

I loved the photo I saw on the news where a family put their wet clothes outside and it froze up to where it looked like they were waving. It takes 2 minutes for wet clothes to freeze up.

Well, you gotta have some kind of fun around here.

Hey Lisa, try the hair thing and let us know. Just wet the ends not your whole head because if it's true we don't want you walking around looking like you have the mange.

Hmmm...Sounds to me like it could be true. Hey, I'm not doing the hair research thing (which I am really curious about, BTW!), so maybe I'll try that tomorrow!
Yep, gotta have all the fun you can!

Ellen, your weather is out of whack!!!

Yes, Servanne, it is which is why we have many children with constant snotty noses. Something just occurred to me though. I'll bet all the people there with garages put their cars in them. We don't do that. We park the cars in the driveway and stuff crap in the garages. Unless, of course, one has a boat or a Harley--they get garage space.

My husband put the car in the garage just once this winter. Otherwise, and he's from here, he believes that one should just "deal with" the cold.

WHEN I was in high school, the last period of the day I had Phy.ED. That particular winter, swimming class was involved. There were many times right after class we had to wait for the bus to come, and our hair froze stiff as an ice cube. None of us girls experienced any problems with it breaking off though. We thought it was kind of neat.

I was talking to someone today and said "its not too bad out, only about four below". Now that's pretty sad, when four below sounds good.

I go out almost every morning with a wet head if my shop is an hour away. I have never had my hair break off. I don't like the frizz I get from drying my hair with a dryer so I just go out right after I wash my head. I have never been sick from a wet head at -20 either.

4 below and no wind!
Today is pajama day at school and the kids are going ice skating on the lake in their jammies! That should be interesting! (of course, they are all wearing long johns and sweaters UNDER the pajamas AND they'll have their snow pants on too !!!)
