Looks like we're in for a ship load (http://www.weather.com/maps/news/severenow/floater10_large.html) of it this weekend. Well, by the standards of the piedmont area that is ;) I'm hoping we get lots of it and that it sticks well. I've been looking for an opportunity to break out the snowboard I got last Christmas. Not really any mountains around here, but theres several decent hills I can build ramps on. :D

It snowed here on Christmas eve, but nothing since then! T_T

Btw, this is random, but I always thought the phrase "ship load" was "s*** load". I just realized I've probably been wrong this whole time. lol! xD

I remember Raleigh got like 20 inches (http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/2352960/) one year back when I was in high school. now THAT was epic FTW!

Remember that ice storm way back in the 90s? Now that was a doozy! xD Oh there was one here right before 2000 and man we had no power in our house for almost a week and trapped in ice. O_O Thank goodness we had a fireplace or we would have frozen. :O

I remember when it smacked my area in 91. I had just moved up here from DC so it was a bit of a shock for me.

I think it was back in 94' that Virginia got terrorized by ice. There was no snow, just pure ice!! Ice storms are scary because of how wet everything is and the dangerous conditions to the environment.

Many trees got killed in my backyard(and fell down too) because of it. :/

Now where do you live Trinity? xD

I've had a neighbor's tree fall across the road and very close to my parked car during an overnight ice storm. imagine the panic when I was woken by my mother whose first words were 'the neighbors tree fell down' :yik:

Yeah it was an ice storm we had, soo scary! :O I remember I cooked my meals over the fireplace lol. And I've lived in a couple of places, South Carolina, LA, Texas, Arkansas. Then in several different places within those states lol. The ice storm I was in was when I lived in AR though. ;]

Told ya ice storms are scary! xD

There is also a film based during one with the name "The Ice Storm"(released three years after we had ours). It is pretty shabby though but isn't a bad watch either way.

@Trinity:
Wow, you've been to a lot of places! I've never had to cook over the fireplace but I think that is something to do with all the starchy carbohydrate foods we have around like chips and such that don't need cooking. :/

Oh and the noise from all of the neighbor's generators is just unbearable!! xD

spikejones
29-01-10, 03:01
we had a generator borrowed from the neighbors construction site that ran a couple fuses on both homes :mis: (pays to know the foreman :p)

any rate, nothing beats ravioli cooked on the gas grill :tmb:

TheBloodRed
29-01-10, 03:03
I remember hooking it up to a powerbar so we could play video games for a while! xD

Power came on same day though and this was during Hurricane Isabel. The neighbor that let us use her generator's name was Isabel! xD

We haven't had snow since New Years which I'm very happy about lol. I hate the cold and I hate Winter, Spring needs to get here faster.

spikejones
29-01-10, 04:35
its almost here, yet the coldest month of the year (for us at any rate) is just coming upon us. id hate to see the winter season pass by without a decent coating of snow though.. its just wrong :(

I'll swap with any of you for a while right now. I don't like cold weather or snow, but I wouldn't mind a bit of change for a while.

It's been snowing like hell this winter. There's way too much snow outside. Oh how I wait for it to melt, the green grass to grow, the beautiful flowers to appear, butterflies and all... oh!

No more snow, please! It's a nevereding nightmare. I'll probably have a mental breakdown if it snows again.

They said we were supposed to get some freezing rain at/around 6:00 this morning, but so far all we've had is some snow. And right now it's about 9:30.

If we do get any ice - that's means we'll be busy at work... Lodging travelers trying to escape the dangerous roadways.

Okay so today we will get a huge blanket of snow. A lot of things are already closing early!! xD

It was snowing today, in school, but it was so incredibly sunny, so I really doubted (correctly, apparently :p) that it would stay :p

Our school don't close... The headmaster reckons the schools too 'Good' to close because of snow. My arse. :p

well, the snow has hit, been going on for a few hours now. I'd say we have around 3 or so inches currently. Looks beautiful :)

WTF! In Finland it doesn't matter even if there's 2 meters of snow outside. It does suck though, it would be cool to get out of school earlier every time it snows, that would be like 6 months in a row :p :D
