We got 10 inches on Sunday, the highest in the state! I think they'll be ok. This can't be the latest snowfall on record. And it could be worse, we could live in North Dakota!!!

Spring in the midwest is often like that. Not that it's any fun, but after a while you become resigned to it. I've had snows like that, if they hit at the right time, make the daffodils not bloom. I bet it's a bit early to kill off the tulips, though. Try to remember that it's not too far from May and that last hard frost. :)

I have lived here all my life....One year we had a "frost" late and just about ruined the fruit trees for that year...it's still a drag:muah:

You know I have to ask you this: I have a niece that was born here(Ohio) and her Mom lives in Nashville now...According to the both of them, when it snows there (Tenn) people get really freaked out!!!! I guess if you live in a state where you drive in 2 to 3ft of snow, 2 or 3 months of year, snow doesn't bother you!!! I still haaaaaate it!!!!!!

Oh, Tennesseans are highly amusing in the snow. I was at Wal-mart last night & needed milk- they were completely out of skim and I was like "What?" Then I remembered the forecast.

They don't have enough equipment (salt trucks/plows) to deal with it, and it doesn't snow enough that people get used to driving in it. (like you have to slow down & control the car gently, but you have to get enough speed to get up hills.) My kids do the snow dance all winter long because our county is in the mountains & gets several inches when it just dusts the valley. They are out if there is any ice on the roads (since it is hilly, and people can't drive.)

And they had just readjusted the school calendar 2 weeks ago because they had used more snow days than allotted. :p

I am from upstate NY though so this amuses me. I love it here though. :heart:

Very pretty! I was in Columbus last week seeing my husband who's working there right now. It was cold during my visit, but I left Sunday & it didn't start snowing until yesterday. Didn't get any snow here at home this winter.

Since your signature side-bar list your location as Texas...


Ah ha! Finally something that isn't "bigger and better in Texas," SNOW. :)

Whoa! Where in Ohio are you, Cheley? Up north, Cleveland or Toledo or somewhere? Here in Columbus, we got a few days of light flurrying this week but no accumulation... and most of our flowers seem to have survived :)

I don't understand the problem? If it were not for late snows and frosts you would be getting up to flowers blooming, grass turning green, trees breaking out in lovely green buds, bunny rabbits bouncing outside your window, and bird singing. Who would want --- wait a second I think I've been at work to long today.

Cancel - Cancel Sorry you didn't get the sarcasm..it has been "cold" here.. umm let's say since late October...I do have "lovely birds"in winter.. cardinals, juncos, bluejays, woodpeckers etc etc... bunny rabbits, deer, coyote etc etc....ever heard of "Cabin Fever"???:wink:

This reminds me of the teachers closing the blinds and telling us not to look outside because we were all so distracted. (You could still smell the newly mown grass though, they can't take that away!)

Oh yea, if we get 3-4 inches of snow in one winter it's like a blizzard. :mrgreen:

March 6, 2007 we got about 2" & it was beautiful! Then on the day before Thanksgiving 2007 we got about 4" & it was fun taking our granddaughter out to play in it. See, we get so little of it I can even remember the dates that we get snow! :rofl:
