when i moved to tennessee i hoped i'd see more snow....being from southern (REALLY SOUTHERN) Louisiana i can remember it snowing twice where it stuck to the ground...both times there was MAYBE 2 inches .... once it was such a bad freeze that the salt water at my grandparents house out in the swamp froze to about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch...anyone who knows anything about thermodynamics knows it's pretty hard to freeze salt water...the advantage was once it thawed....all the fish were still frozen so you could just ride down the bayou or through the duck ponds in a Pirogue and just pick the fish up with a net that were floating around....in about 15 to 20 minutes they'd thaw out and flop around (if they didn't start flopping we'd use them for bait in the crab traps because that meant they were dead before they froze)...
ahhh the good old days when I use to live in New York it was like that. Now Here in Virginia it hardly ever snows that much
HOWEVER it's only really snowed a lot once or twice in the 8 years that i've lived here...the rest there's just been enough ice on the road to make me smash my truck up

Now some of you old geasers from the area might remember the storm of 1977. I remember climbing out my parents 2nd story window and on to the snow bank. That was January 28th to February 1st, 1977.
With wind gusting up to 70mph and snow depth recorded up to 7 feet of snow. To get out our driveway it was just a wall of snow. Of course you couldn't go anywhere when you did get out.

They don't call my region, "Where Fahrenheit meets Celsius" for no reason.....

It sure was hot today...
Feel free to send some of that snow downunder, it might help cool things down a bit.
James, -45 eh? Have you tried running a computer with no CPU heatsink/fan in those conditions? I know I'd sure find some old beast and try it!

Hey, we hit -50*C yesterday. Want to trade?
Ouch..lol well Canada isn't that far away from me (20 min drive or less) so i'm sure we'll get the remnants of Canada's weather soon. I'd REALLY hate to see your heating bill. Yikes!
