    OMG, it's snowing out! My dogs do not know what to make of it.

    We never (almost never) get snow in Houston.

    My mom called to tell me it was snowing.

    We're waiting for a severe winter storm. We are told to expect power outages.

    I'm afraid it wouldn't last long here. Stupid mediterranean climate.

    Houston can't handle snow. It snowed twice while I lived there, 20 years apart. If you could call it snow. It was a dusting, but the roads iced up making driving treacherous. The last time it snowed was around Christmas. I have pictures of my rose bushes in full bloom covered with snow. About 20 years ago.

    That is the greatest snowman I have ever seen. Palm fronds for arms.

    DH, your snowman is hysterical.

    turbo, if I can get to my old upstate NY snow pictures, I can better your snow. I lived in an area of Upstate NY that got lake effect snow, one year, roofs caving in from snow were on the news every night. You would hire people to get the snow off of your roof, even though they were at extreme angles already.

    I know where I want to move. I'm so sick of summer 9 months of the year.

    More than the snow I need the cold. I used to live in Montréal some years ago and never left it for more than 2 years. That was before going where I am now. Here it snows once in a century and last time was 1 year ago.
    The picture of SticksandStones reminds me good souvenirs, I better not watch these kind of pictures! I envy all of you that have snow and cold. (I mean by cold temperatures going below -15°C).

    I haven't seen a temperature below 5 centigrade in years.

    Not a spot of snow here - even on the mountains.
    Unemployed consultant, ski's waxed, season pass purchased - nothing!

    We have a 70% chance of snow this weekend, and we reeeeeeally need it. The local and semi-local ski lifts still aren't operating.

    Go the the local butcher and ask if you can sit in his freezer; just for old time's sake.
