^fire would be better than salt!

 

I was surprised last winter (my first winter) to see that they use salt...it makes it take longer to melt...

 

The whole state of Maryland only has 2 plows...seriously! So not ready for snow here

 

I want warm nice sunny days :D

They keep telling me that too: this is the worst winter in many years...

 

I really believe that the "we have seasons here...pretty fall and pretty spring" is not really true. Fall lasts 1 month and the last week of that is sooo cold. Spring is all pollen and just gets a bit warmer until summer (the 2.5 short months June to mid August) rolls around and it's sooo humid. I started to have allergies and learned what "dry skin during winter" is just when I moved here.

 

I'm used to the 10 years I lived in LA: it's always sunny and nice 70's. Winter = rain for a few random weeks and that's it. But then there is the population and air pollution and the crazy culture and traffic.

 

/my rant :p

This really made me lol.

 

All the snow I've seen in the last week was just a few flakes earlier on, don't think I'll be seeing any more until next winter. Hopefully I can go out n enjoy it then... I seem to have missed all this 'worst winter in 30 years' crap.

 

I'm jealous diablo, I'd love to have snow like that! Although yeah I guess after a while it could get a tad annoying.

I love winter and it is wonderful that this winter is finally back to a 'normal' winter. Unlike the pathetic winters of the past 15 years.

 

I would never live in a location that did not have significant snowfall each year. Without the snow the spring/summer/fall seasons become meaningless and you wouldn't enjoy them.

Much of the southern states still have defined seasons but come on, there are thousands of people living in SC that do not have windows or doors on their homes (I've spent quite a bit of time in back-country central SC) How cold does your winter actually get?

 

FL and other gulf coast regions as well as most of the west coast are completely undefined from one month to the next. For me, personally, I have no desire to live in those places. I wish all of the people who dislike the snow and cold can go move further south and stop clogging up my nice state.

Personally, i'm enjoying the day off. Wish I could've made it to Ski Roundtop or Liberty... But apart from a stiff back, this is great! Gonna have to get a pic of my Sol in the driveway tomorrow... Snow banks will be 6"+ above the roof :laugh:

 

But now they're calling for a third storm early next week... I'm gonna need a back brace :crazy:

where in sc do we not have doors? lol

 

 

in winter it gets in the low teens on the colder nights.. normally its about low 20's high teens.. sometimes we have dipped into single digits.. had a heck of a ice storm in '04.. no power for like a week..more in some other places

 

summer its right about 95-100.. with horrible humidity.. fall spring are in the 70's

 

 

but WE GET SNOW TONIGHT!!!!! 100% CHANCE!!

 

downside: people dont know how to drive in snow here

 

upside: i dont have to drive anywhere

In Ninety Six, for one thing. Wife's home town. In the countryside around town there are lots of ramshackle houses with blankets for doors and windows.
