Snow? What's that? http://64.21.184.154/ubb/biggrin.gif

That's why I moved from Central NY, home of the 200" yearly snowfalls from October to April, to NC and then to TN.

Come on down - there's plenty of room for anybody who's sick of the snow. http://64.21.184.154/ubb/smile.gif

I feel the same way as the Bowers do. Here in the snowbelt that white crap isn't going away fast enough for any of us this year.

At least some of the day''s high temps are getting up in the 40's now.

The LX doesn't come out to play until the snow stops, and that dreaded road salt gets flushed away by our usual April showers.

Ha, ha... very funny - LOL!! http://64.21.184.154/ubb/tongue.gif Yes, I bet moving south was pretty nice after shoveling all that snow in NY. A trip south would be pretty nice right about now. http://64.21.184.154/ubb/smile.gif

I would do that gladly if I could! http://64.21.184.154/ubb/wink.gif I guess the good thing is at least we HAVE gotten to play in the snow quite a bit with our 4x4 Expedition. That thing is GREAT in the snow (not so great on ice, though). http://64.21.184.154/ubb/eek.gif

I took a vacation over Christmas break and ended up clearing my Mother's driveway with a snowblower 9 out of the 11 days I was there. Was I ever glad to come back home to TN. I don't miss anything about Winter in NY. http://64.21.184.154/ubb/smile.gif

Snow??? What is that? Man, I love my 12 month summer down here in New Orleans. Only problem is during July/August when the avg. day temp is 102 and I drive a black car! Good thing the A/C is upgraded!

No snow in Vancouver, just lots of sun and plenty of rain. Stangs in the rain is like getting the runs on the toilet.

I was just at the MN border (and Thunder Bay ON)this week and it was not too bad but it was real nice in Toronto when I got back. Hope its nice this week as I took a week off work to do a few minor mods to the car.

Here in Houston we just have about a week of cold weather. The only problem is that the temperature in the Summer (about 8 months) will likely hit 103+ more than once (it did last year) and with the factor humidity it will feel as if I was in **** !! Man I am glad my A/C is working!!
