I see the wink so I know you are probably kidding. But it snowed everyday this week in Portland!!! My kids were so bummed to hear that one they would have missed a whole week of school and two that would have meant a whole week of sledding down the awesome hill by our old house. I felt the same way! DH had said if we still lived there it would not have snowed.... Murphy's Law and all.

I just want a little of the white stuff.... maybe 6-8 inches. That's enough for a really good snow ball fight and sledding and snowmen!!! And it's small enough that it won't be around for long.

It's not much at all where I come from. That wouldn't usually close anything.

No, it wouldn't where I grew up either, however, this area is not where 'we came from'.

That amount of snow would indeed be a big deal here. We just don't have the snow removal equipment for one thing.

Have you lived here long? Did you see the last time people were stuck on the roads for hours due to a small snowfall? The loss of wages? (People in hourly jobs don't get paid when they can't get to work or their employement is closed.) How about the lives lost?

No, it really isn't interesting to see.
