It's not here in Michigan... I wonder if we'll get a real winter this year. There was barely a week last year where snow covered the ground, which is unusual, because isually it's 3+ months of constant coverage.

I thought this topic was about cocaine

That's way too much snow for this time of year...

It was 70 degrees yesterday, in Philadelphia.

I don't know what the fuck is going on.

What if I told you it is... :O

#8 Posted by BillyMethers (149 posts) -

I thought this thread was going to be about that cocaine or the rapper Snow.

Actual snow though is a nice sight for the holidays. Too bad we never get any here.

Enjoy it while you can. Soon enough this will be the stuff of legends.

SPAAAAAAAACE!

Is what first popped into my head. In Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada we probably won't get anything like that until January, if ever. We're pretty protected from most elements and possible causes of apocolypse, including the snowpocolypse.

It's been chaos here in Sweden. Takes forever to get to work with all this snow. We got about half a meter (2 feet) of snow

It snowed this morning where I am here in England (not sure about rest of UK, or even rest of England). Snowing isn't very common, and it usually happens for just one week near the end of January.

@Fruitcocoa: Where is that?

#14 Posted by DukesT3 (1917 posts) -

I live in Texas so the only snow I know is the stuff that'll make you party extremely HARD.

Yeah! And the fact that people are dying is not good at all.

Vara, Sweden.

Kinda funny since it is like 60 degrees on the East Coast.

We had snow but it melted. Your picture reminds me of Let the Right One In.

I'm so glad I moved to Florida, I'm fucking sick of it after living through long winters in western Maryland. Plus I'm glad I missed that shitstorm Sandy that brought several feet of snow in the area a while back.

Not in scandinavia! Also it's -20°C (-4°F) outside...

#23 Posted by TobbRobb (4652 posts) -

I'm all too aware. This is the only shitty part about Sweden, I want to get the fuck out of here and all this goddamn snow. MY BUS WAS DELAYED FOR 1.5 HOURS! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHAGH

#24 Posted by amir90 (2156 posts) -

I live in the very southern part of Norway, so we got some snow from December 1, luckily it has stopped for a while.
It got as cold as -11C at the worst, which isn´t all that bad considering the people in the north had -31C

#25 Edited by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

Here in Uppsala, Sweden we've just had one of the worst snow storms in years probably. First time in my life EVERY single bus in the entire region was shut down and the train company, SJ, just gave up on trying to get people to their destination on time. In Stockholm, some train trips that are usually 20 minutes or so took about 3 hours. 
 
Doubt I'll be making it to school tommorow at this rate. Hardly made it home today. 
 
Oh yeah, and it's still going outside. Amazingly, we haven't had a power outage today. Instead we had it yesterday and only for a short while. Very strange.

@Icemo: We should really start measuring cold temperatures in Kelvin instead. 
253.15 degrees sounds much better.
#27 Posted by fugie7 (1109 posts) -

@Fruitcocoa: it's not here in chicago...lol

#28 Posted by Icemo (642 posts) -

@MaFoLu: Yeah, but it's hard to start using a different measurement when you have used °C for your entire life. Although I do use Kelvin in my physics calculations.

#29 Posted by GeekDown (1170 posts) -

Sweden's kind of fucked at the moment. All the snow just came at once during the day and it's kind of chaotic outside, with transportation being pretty much shut down. I'm not looking forward to biking to the university tomorrow.

You snow apologists make me sick. DOWN WITH SNOW!

#31 Posted by JJOR64 (18995 posts) -

Got a tiny bit of snow here in Nebraska and it melted in like two seconds. There is a chance here on Saturday for snow again, but it probably wont happen...again.

#32 Posted by Christoffer (1823 posts) -

Yup, there's a lot of snow here but it's been sunny during the past days so it's like living in a Disney christmas special... complete with talking animals, sing-along-long and no sex.

Those Mayans might be right about the end of the world. I played golf yesterday, In sixty degree weather, in Michigan, in December. WEIRD.

#35 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5008 posts) -

At first the snow is pretty and gives a holiday feeling, but when it starts to melt, man, if the snow was a person I would stab him in the eyes.

#36 Edited by HerbieBug (4212 posts) -

Snow started here in Canada (Alberta) over a month ago. On the up side, ski season is already in full swing.

When I was in my Freshman year of college,it got cold at the end of October and people were freezing and wearing jackets on into March. I remember walking from the IT help desk, where I work, to my car at 7PM every evening and having to turn on the heat for a minute or two so I could warm my hands up. I didn't bother buying any gloves because I'm a cheap bastard.

Last year, my Sophomore year, I barely even saw my breath. I don't think it ever stayed in the 40's for more than a few days, and this winter it's barely dropped down that low. I hate it. I love seeing snow and love feeling the cold in the Winter. I guess I'm weird or something, but those were my favorite times of the year and it seems like we're not going to get that around here this year. It was like 70 degrees a few days this week, what the fuck is wrong?

@Icemo: Yeah, I know, but still... It sounds so warm! 
There is just something really depressing about first seeing the snow and being a little excited, then looking at the thermometer and seeing -10 degrees... Then realizing you have to go outside.
#39 Posted by onarum (2089 posts) -

you guys are so effin lucky.... fucking 35°C (95°F) in here, I HATE this stupid heat, much prefer cold weather....

Yeah, fuck snow! I like living in the north east, but I only find June, July and August enjoyable. I love the summer. I look better, I feel better and few things in life make me happier than the beach and the ocean. Winter: It's cold, everything is dead, the barren trees and bleak skies remind one of a post-apocalyptic movie, it starts to get dark at 4 PM, snow results in terrible driving conditions, having to shovel my walkway and deck, hiring someone to plow my driveway, losing power for days, lack of vitamin D, ice, having to suit up as if I was about to embark on an Antarctic expedition just to walk my dog, staying fit via running is a pain and having to wear socks all the god damn time! /rant

Remember, only the tan survive (or die from skin cancer)!

How many of you on this board have never seen snow in real life? Speak up you cowards.

Global warming? I don't know. It was 60 yesterday here in New York, but it rained in the morning. How am I getting rain and not snow? Soon, there will be no more winter.

Cocaine?

#45 Posted by ConfusedOwl (942 posts) -

Nothing here in Ontario yet. Had a few days with snow but it all melts really fast.

#46 Posted by vikingdeath1 (972 posts) -

It snowed for one day here in Boston then was gone the next day...

I can't Wait for more!!

WINTER > SUMMER

Weather forecast here is promising me snow.
 
I need to find a guy for the holidays and take long romantic walks in the snow again. I love the snow so much I'm seriously considering moving to a country with regular snowfall.

#48 Posted by pyromagnestir (4324 posts) -

I see a couple fellow Massachusetts snow lovers in this thread. This pleases me.

#49 Posted by Animasta (14692 posts) -

there is no such thing as snow here, so fuck all y'all

#50 Posted by BoG (5191 posts) -

We had a big snowstorm in Utah a few weeks ago. I hate snow and I'm going to move to Phoenix.
