Ick. I know. I was really hoping for a snow day too! They predicted 15 inches for Louisville! How much snow is there on the ground…uh maybe two inches. No cancelled school or work. 🙁

We never have cancelled work here… but I also live in Pennsylvania lol.  I go to school in the mountains, they don’t even put salt down when it snows, just cinders.  Such a treat to drive in, let me tell you! 

I want to move south, and the winter just makes me want to go NOW.

Cinders are basically just little rocks.  A lot of areas use them instead of salt because salt is so expensive.  They give cars “traction” but they obviously don’t melt the ice like salt.  I’m not a fan. lol.

That is VERY cold for the south!  It’s 21 here, which is pretty normal.

I’m in central Alabama and when I woke up at 6am it was 20 outside….when I headed to work it had warmed up to a balmy 24!!! Being that I really like cold weather I don’t mind it but I’m really hoping for that dusting of snow so I can sleep in tomorrow!

Layla – I’m hoping the snow hysteria carries on in Jacksonville – I could use a day off of work!  And we’re from PA so we could drive if we wanted to.  Keep your fingers crossed EVERYONE out there in WB land. I need a day to do my thank you notes!

I’m watching the news last night and they’re closing schools and having early releases the night before? No actual sign of snow?

I’m from MD and they closed schools the morning of, you know, when it was actually snowing.  We would be already half dressed ready to go to school hoping to hear on tv that school is cancelled lol!

My daughter went to bed wishing for snow. I signed up for text messaging with the school system. They usually text around 5 a.m. if there is no school…needless to say, there was no text b/c there was no snow…LOL. I had a very disgruntled 12 year old on my hands this morning….LOL. She looked so cute with her nose all wrinkled up “You mean to tell me I have to go out in sub-zero conditions and there isn’t even any SNOW?!!!”….LOL

I’m kind of jealous. Chicago doesn’t shut down for anything!
