I was reading today that as of yesterday (Friday, Feb. 12) - 49 out of the 50 states in the U.S. have snow!!!   :o   They don't know if there has ever been a time when all 50 states have snow at the same time. 

I have a former IL friend who now lives in South Carolina and she is thrilled that they have snow.   Perhaps I could give some of you her address if you wanted to send her some more??!!   ;D

Could be an interesting five more weeks until Spring.

:'( :'( Next week is Winter Break for Atlanta area schools... So what?  Our granddaughters (10&12) and daughter had planned to drive up today and spend a few days with us.

The grandkids kept asking if we had snow. Guess what? Atlanta had their own snow and squeals of delight could be heard as we talked with daughter last night and the granddaughters were running and hiding from their daddy who was throwing snowballs at them!!!!   SHUCKS... THEY?RE IN ATLANTA AND WE'RE IN FOOTHILLS OF SMOKY MTS AND NO SNOW ON GROUND HERE.

Now, sweet Bucky, you can keep all you got in IL as its due to start snowing here tomorrow night and snow some each day next week!!!

Positive thing about this forecast, at least I won't have to sit in bay window with  8) on to watch the birds... In other words, no sunshine in 'these here' hills for a while!!!!!  :'( NO GRANDDAUGHTERS, EITHER! :'(

Joy, you know it's really bad when the kids start complaining about the snow.  Our great grandsons were here last night and told me "Mimi I think we have enough snow, why does it have to snow more on Monday?"  He's 11 and he's sick of it.  His brother is 7 and he feels it was to much snow this time.  He said he couldn't even sled because it's so deep.  :(

I hope your granddaughter's had a really great time in it.  If they want they can come to PA and get some more. ;D

Take care all,

Hugs, Pooh

Hey Pooh, your grandsons don't tunnel?  Mmmmmm, shucks, that was the best part of snow when I was coming up, but then, there wasn't a whole lot to do otherwise (we had a tunnel city going one winter, connecting all the homes with kids.  The ones without, oh well, they didn't get the "shoveling".  ;) :)

Patze,
I remember tunnels and building snow forts, kind of like an igloo dug into a big drift...now parents would tell them it's not safe it could colapse on them...kids don't know how to have fun like we did! :Ds

This is so true! Kids don't know how to have fun. We were never in the house. Course mom probably wouldn't let us. We made our own fun. Snow forts and snowball fights.
We are just now getting pounded again. It is pouring again. 4-6 I think, We'll see if the weather man is right this time.  So far no go.

What on earth is going on? It has snowed more this year than I ever recall, this is like the three snow day already.We woke to about a 1/2 to 1 inch of snow this morning! Just enough to remind us that it's still winter.

We will probably be in coats come Easter if this keeps up! :'( :'(

Well for those of us that don't normally have cold winters one blessing is this will kill off some of the bugs that only seem to multiply during the winter, like flies and etc.. Years past it did not get cold enough.
