Default Snow Again!!

I don't know how you all live in states with so much snow. Here in Tn we may get 2 rounds of snow, but this year it has been about 5 times now. We got snow yesterday and our roads are iced! I only have 2 dck's today, but I would rather have my other 2 too!
Dh took a vacation day so I would not have to take him to work. I use to love the snow when I lived in Utah, but the last couple of years I hate it when it snows here because we get snow but the roads become iced over.

Next week we are going to get some 50/60 degree weather. I can't wait to get the children outside.

Arkansas has the same mess. No kids yesterday or today. Very few cars going by and I'm on a main street. DH manages a local gas station and could not believe the amount of people there not for gas, just for ciggs and lottery tickets!

The states with all the snow do better than us, b/c they have the equipment and are prepared. 2" - 8" of snow doesn't shut down the entire town, like it does us. Boots, snowsuits, snowy sidewalks and driveways, and snow shovels are part of their daily equipment. Most of use don't even OWN a snow shovel!

Yes I seen on the news that you all got blasted, I would move to CA but then there is the earthquakes, then there is Flordia but I lived there when I was 17 and did not like it. So I guess I will stay where I am.

I just want spring to come!! I want to plant flowers! And spend our days outside!!

Get ready to be shocked... I went outside to get the mail yesterday when it was -1 and didn't wear a coat!

You do get used to it and after a few weeks of cold, it doesn't seem as bad as it did at first.
