    We may get a couple of flakes but we never get this much this soon. Two feet is too much.

    In the mountains they got about 4 feet in the last week, down here we only got about 1.5-2 feet, and it's been going like that weekly since the beginning of November. February/March usually sees the most snow so I'm kind of afraid of how much we will get then.
    We were still getting snow down here in June/July this summer, so I thought we'd have a late start this season, but NOOOOO... LOL
    Like I said, I am so TIRED of winter!! LOL

    Smoke haze! There are a so many bushfires in our state that we just seem to be constantly living with smoke haze. This morning the air quality levels in my area are more than double what they consider hazardous! As soon as I woke up all I could smell was smoke. Uugh. I don't think it has ever been this bad before. This fire season is certainly not off to a great start here and so many people have already lost their homes not to mention the poor animals.

    If you were in CNY, I'd under stand the two feet dusting but I have to agree- Rensselear getting two feet of snow this early is not quite common. In NYC, We got a light dusting. Me and several thousand affected migraineurs also had headaches. Gotta love bad weather.

    Yeah, I was watching this and cried :( They all would be living in my house if I lived there so so so sad. I watched Women take off their shirts, run in, wrap up a koala and take them out :( So Great to see that but so so sad that it is happening

    It is 65º F out yesterday and today........... here in NEW ENGLAND !!
    As much as I hate the cold, it IS Winter and I would like it to come back right now !


    yup, I know I just shot myself in the foot by saying it out loud. I will remember this thread when in February it is 5º and 10 feet of snow because Winter decided to make up for lost time o_O

    Gripe: Volcanic ash!

    The outside is grey, literally and everyone is moving around wearing masks. Earthquakes last night, lightning forks and ash, and now apparently the lava has started.

    I'm too far to be affected by lava if Taal Volcano erupts, but we're close enough to get ash, which is really bad for kids and the elderly, and I'm caring for both.

    Please keep the people directly affected in your thoughts..

    I remember the ash we had when Mt. St. Helens blew up. You are definitely in my thoughts. It's nasty stuff. Stay safe.
