Need I say more?  How's the weather where you live today?

It's in the 50s and raining in Chicagoland today, Angie. Most of the snow is melted. Only a week ago we were in zero temps with windchills at minus 28 or so. The saying around here is if you don't like the weather wait a few minutes and it'll change!

We had a beautiful Christmas Eve day snow. Soft puffs of cotton floating down and coating the trees. Now it's a sloppy mess!

I lived in CA for about seven years and I missed the change of seasons, but you can have those frigid temps!

That is exactly why I don't miss the snow!!!!

It is a balmy 70 degree this morning here....I'll keep it!

And, that's exactly why I live in Florida too! Just look at my post for today and see my blue skies over my lake. (Ahhh...)

I'm with you Angela. That video brought back memories of growing up on Long Island, New York. Snow looks pretty when you're inside but driving can be very hazardous. I live in Phoenix, Arizona. If I want to spend a day in the snow, I can drive two hours north to Flagstaff for the day. The altitude is higher and so snow is common in winter.

And they laugh at us Southerners for not being able to drive in it?!

It's 72 down here in Texas, muggy, and headed for a high of 76.

Ahhhhhh, the memories of my car "ice skating" down the streets of Wellesley are still fresh although it's been several years. One of the most deflating moments in Winter Wonderland was how, after shoveling the driveway and going in for a shower, I would return dressed and ready for work to find a five foot pile of freshly plowed street snow at the foot of the drive. Arrggghhhh! We actually had a bit of snow in San Antonio a few weeks back, but this morning it's back in the 70s already. =) Clyde

The problem isn't the snow, in my opinion. I Never blame snow for anything!! I love it.
Blame the snow removal people. Or the people out driving in it who are probably just trying to go to Starbucks. LOL

Anyway, it's been very cold here, but not much snow. I'm terribly disappointed. It is a beautiful cloudless day - even the smog is at a minimum. Gorgeous. With a high of 32.

30 degrees and sunny. It's a beautiful and chilly day in Colorado. There is no snow on the roads, thankfully!

It's 78 outside. :-)

Personally, I love to watch it snow. It's really beautiful. Then, when I get tired of watching ... I just change the channel.

Lived in Great Falls, Montana for couple years. In the winter because people often got several, if you got a "fender bender" you called your insurance agent to make a note of when & where. Then in the Spring you'd call and say you're ready to get the car repaired.

I'll take the sunshine any time.

I live in Colville, WA - about 60 miles north of Spokane. We've received 46 inches of snow this month- so far. The good thing, though, is that it has been extremely cold - no melting and re-freezing, so the roads really aren't too bad. And everyone here puts studded tires on in November, and our city keeps up fairly well with the ploughing. We have 8 to 10 inches more expected tonight. Sigh. My kids love it, but I'm ready for spring.

Oooh-watching that video clip actually hurt! I feared some of those well-meaning folk trying to stop their cars by foot (I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it, though), or talk to someone would actually get hit.

Sunny and a crisp 60 degrees. I miss the seasons changing and WATCHING the snow. But not the shoveling and driving, so for this season of our lives, we make the choice of mild winters.

Happy new year, Angie, and fellow visitors!

Oh, Dazer Angie! We lived in western NY growing up...I hit my share of icy bridges...I slid backwards down my share of hilly streets...no more! THIS is why we moved to South Carolina!I love it here. :o)

Living in the northland has it's advantages, however. On some of the "bad weather days" it offers us a chance to stay home and read a good book, sew, knit, or just enjoy being inside with a hot cup of cocoa!

Okay, I'll give you messy, cold, frustrating, etc., but Angie, some of my best childhood memories are of waking up, peeking through the blinds and seeing fresh snow. Then the topper was hearing that school was closed! I love being able to call my staff and say, "The office is closed!"

As I watched the video one question kept going through my head--no one thought to drive up on the grass?
