    Quit complaining it was 37C here today, and I got to swim and eat ice-cream. It was terrible.

    But, seriously, you didn't get snow? Everyone else did, that sucks.

    It's always been a dream of mine to witness a 10-ft snowfall, dig into it and create an intricate network of forts and pop in and out of exits deliberately situated atop the largest snow drifts and then wage a guerrilla snow war upon the adults with my sizeable army of children, Iron-Triangle style.

    Back when I lived in Pittsburgh it sowed enough one year my best friend and I were able to build a fort by digging straight down. We even did tunnels although their safeness was in question (luckily it wasn't 10 feet of snow so a collapse wasn't too dangerous. ).

    Yeah, Pittsburgh hasn't seen a serious snow fall since the mid-ninetys, methinks. Now, all the news channels have special coverage when we get more than 9/10 of an inch. If we get 3-6 (which is what our few "serious" snows have been), well, it might as well be The Day After Tomorrow come true.

    I want another 20+ inch snow like we got back in '93!!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storm_o...Century_(1993)

    We're looking at 71F here in the DC area, with snow expected on Saturday. The trees are going to be confused.

    I can't remember if I'd moved to Pittsburgh before or after that happened...

    Most snow I recall at one time was a few feet.

    Now I live at about the same latitude on the opposite side of the country but we get maybe an inch a year.

    not anymore. i think we got new heaters, or maybe it was because my school relaxed the restrictions on sweaters in school that now we dont have a day off.
    but if we did get new heaters, that is such b/c i dont feel it....
