OT: It's Winter in....
 
Texas! We are having an ice storm. Been going for the last 4 hours and it's only 26 degrees. I don't have to go to work today....YEA!
Have a fire going, going to put in a movie and knit. Ahhhhhhh, time for cocoa too.

My brother and his family live in Plano. I was there one year in January and we got a little snow. Enjoy it while it lasts!

I'm about 200 miles north of you in Oklahoma City, and it's snowing here!!! They've pretty much shut down the city, and I, being "non-essential personnel," have the day off! (Isn't it nice to be non-essential sometimes?!) So far, I've been reading Harry Potter (finished Half-Blood Prince for the 3rd time), drinking tea and hot chocolate, and watching White Christmas - how about you?

It's 60 degrees here in Western New York. :teehee: But don't worry, we'll be in the 30's by midnight and the snow will start again. :roll: I wish DH would get home from Boston, then we could go get a tree before the weather gets nasty and we bring tons of snow into the house.

I'm really having HP withdrawels and will have to start book 5 again real soon, or at least before the movie comes out in July.

Yes, sometimes it helps being non-essential. That's why my boss said to not come in today, although he didn't use that expression. The library isn't so important I guess.

It's -20 here. Celsius. I think that would be -5 to -10 in Fahrenheit? I know -40 Celsius is the same as -40 Fahrenheit. It hasn't gotten that cold yet, unless you count windchill. Wow, I can't believe stuff just shuts down in other places. I have to trudge to work with snow up to my knees.

I will be so, so happy when it goes up to 0 degrees, because that will be a warm day.

Well it is in the 40s and 50s here today. Which for the desert is scarves and hat cold. :roflhard:

Around here, it's not the cold itself that's the problem. It's the peabrains who think having 4-wheel drive means that they can go flying down an icy highway at 70 mph. I can deal with cold; risking my life by driving near those nit-wits, not so much. [/vent]

A few years ago, we had a really bad ice storm, and one of the accidents involved an empty ambulance that had slid from another accident a block away. Yikes!
