We have had about 16 inches of snow here in 3 days! Ugh! We can't go anywhere because our 2001 vehicle won't start :rolleyes: and the snow is covering everything! This is awful!!!

I love the snow, you are lucky to get so much. We never get so much where I live to do anything (ski, snowboard, etc..) :( Although I can understand why it could be fustrating ;)

That's really unfortunate Shandroid. I hope it stops for you shortly so you can get out and about again. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I'd love to see some snow here, still hoping for a miracle. :rolleyes:

Hi guys! Hey Doppie! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I am sorry to rub it in to all you folks who don't get much snow. If I could ship it to ya, I would!!! I am done with it!!!

Bet the little ones have a blast!! Ha! Funny you mention this! I thought I would be nice and take Grady out to give water to the poor goaties and well he fell flat into the snow face first!! He burst into tears, terrified for his life!! He wouldn't stop crying until about 10 minutes after I got all his snowy clothes and boots off!! Ugh!

All I can say is thank God I went to the grocery store right before all this snow fell! Oh that was a story too! My hubby had to jumpstart the car before I left and told me I would probably have to seek out someone to jump it for me again before I could leave! And he was right! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif It was awful!!!!!

I am in WINTER HELL!! Anyone know if Punxitauncey(SP?) Phil saw his shadow or not? I could use some GOOD NEWS!

Sorry to hear that Shan :( Winter is only nice when you're inside with the oven on full heat and the fireplace blazing :rolleyes: The situation here is rather nightmarish too, it started raining last night and all the tons of snow we had is slowly being transformed into sheer ice. I had loads of trouble catching the bus this morning: walking up the hill to the bus stop I went like one step ahead and then slipped three steps back again :rolleyes:

Oh the torment!!!! The meterologist just said that we are going to get dumped on again tomorrow night and all day Thursday!!!! UUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHH!!! We could get up to 8 more inches!!!! Where are we going to put it?! Roofs are going to collapse!!

Marianne, hey girl! Ice is the worst!! Please be careful out there, ok? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

We should be sure to keep this thread handy so we can refer to it in mid-July.

*pauses for a moment of reflection over summer* ;)
