    I live in NJ and I’d go if it wasn’t a sheet of ice. But 3-5 inches of snow isn’t a big deal, I’ve driven to work in blizzards than once, but that’s the nature of the job. My type of car is fabulous in the snow which is one reason I keep buying the same brand – go Range Rover Sport. It sounds like you don’t want to go and you’re trying to find excuses. If you chicken out and don’t go, you had better send a VERY nice gift.

    3-5 inches soundslike nothing to me. In fact we got more than that Friday, when I was driving 45 minutes through the country to another town at midnight! But I’m Canadian, and that may not be normal for you. I say if you feel comfortable driving in it go for it! If not, don’t put yourself in danger. I’msure your friend will understand.

    pateacher:  sounds like you don’t want to go… so don’t. having a guest who obviously doesn’t want to be there is no fun for anyone. Send an extra gift for bailing after RSVPing in the affirmative, though.

    Seriously, if you don’t want to go, don’t. Enough with trying to legitimize it. Own it and just tell her.

    pateacher:  Yes I would.

    Another Canadian bee here. I got married last January, there were 2 HUGE snow storms the day before and day after my wedding. On my wedding day it was -35. Everyone still came, some travelling 5 or more hours.

    sweetloveaj:  “Woah, you’re trying to avoid the wedding of a “friend” because your ex will be there?! Was he deranged and abusive or something? What’s going on here???”

    He cheated on OP, but is not deranged or abusive.

    OP, as I said on thread five months ago, while nobody looks forward to being in the same place at the same time as an ex with whom things ended poorly, this is the time to be a civilized adult.

    There will be many more times in your life where you have to breathe the same air as someone you don’t like or respect. On one of your closest friend’s wedding days, and for her sake, make up your mind to suck it up for a few short hours.

    pateacher:  I grew up in Chicago, no chance I’d skip it. If we had stayed home any time there was 3-5 inches of snow in the forecast, we would never have left home from October through March, lol. You’ll be fine, drive safe!

    FantasticFawn:  it’s like some folks think asking a question five different ways will get different answers.  I award an ‘E’ for effort, though.  😝

    futurejewell2017:  Or that they can post something and have unanimous agreement/validation. I’m looking at OP’s past posts and this situation is so weird…is it about her ex? the snow? does she secretly hate this friend and is looking for a passive-aggressive way to communicate her hatred?

    The excuse of “my dog ate my homework” is better than “There is a couple inches of snow, can’t make it”.

    Sorry, but you should go.

    I live in QLD, Australia where 20 degrees (Celsius) is considered ‘freezing’ haha and that doesn’t even sound like a lot of snow to me. 

    A for effort though 🙄 But seriously, just don’t go.
