Anyone think it will snow with this front...and if so do you think Monday or Tuesday???

I was not here for the 1985 18" snow storm and would not mind seeing a little of the white stuff!

Good Lord, I hope not. It's bad enough around here when it rains. When it snows, people act like the world is ending. I left Illinois to get away from this kind of weather.

That being said, if anyone needs to go anywhere after it snows/sleets/freezes, the Yankee Taxi Service will be in action for the duration of the bad weather =-)

I'm going to say "No, it won't snow." I would love it if it did--I moved here in May of 1985, so I missed that blizzard also. Two Christmases ago when it snowed in Corpus Christi, I briefly thought about driving my kids down to see it, but then figured it would be gone by the time we got there--well, of course they ended up getting a huge amount that lasted several days, so I should have taken them down! They've never seen it except in pictures. I think it would be so cool if we got some--enough to shut the roads down and we could all stay home! Probably won't happen, though......

I hope it does! There are so many kids here that have never seen the white stuff! Plus a day off from work would be super nice! I'm moving to CO next month so I could use some practice driving in the snow!!

OK...could someone please tell the TV stations to shut up already, and inform us when something important happens?

"We're going to stay on the air all night, just in case it starts snowing, you'll see it here first!"

While we're at it, let's get a few things straight:

This stuff is not going to "freeze on contact" as many of the stations have been claiming, unless it's on an overpass or deck railing or something...the ground is still 50 degrees and everything that hits it will melt.

And speaking of overpasses, how hard would it be to transfer some salt from the northern part of the state and put it on our overpasses? TXDOT is TXDOT, no matter where it is in the state, right?

Sorry...stepping off my soapbox now...

Aha ha ha ha ha!

Sound like Texas is a lot like Virginia when it comes to snow. Everything shuts down and people freak out! It's actually comical! The media is hilarious to watch. They take it all so seriously.
And yet there could be a drive by at a grocery store right now, and it would barely be mentioned.

I am NOT digging this!!! I can't believe I left beautiful, warm, sunny Palm Desert, California for this!!! I tried to get to the gym this morning and as soon as I backed my car out of the garage and tried to get up my driveway the car slid backward toward the house! Now, being from CA I can drive in rain and I can drive in snow, but this ice thing just freaks me out!!!

Default I'm willing to concede

OK...it's gotten bad. As bad as they said it would.

This is the kind of weather where even the northerners stay home...except that up north, they'd put salt on the roads and it would all be a moot point.

Now if we could just get a little more ice accumulation to weigh down those high dead branches in my oak tree...

OK...so maybe it isn't REALLY snowing so we can go out and enjoy it....but a day (or two) off with pay ain't so bad either!

Everyone stay WARM and DRY!
