Re: Re: Are you all snowbound?

We went from being unseasonably warm (40's and 50's) the first week of the  
year (it was AWESOME!!!) to our average temps around zero this past week or  
so...snow has not been at all unmanageable for us here...but we feel the  
pain of those in other areas of the country...Daryl most of us up here  
can't stop commenting on how badly we feel for places like Atlanta that  
don't have multitudes of snowplows; I believe I heard something like there  
are only 6 snow plows in the whole area of Atlanta? Unbelievable to those  
of us who routinely live with lots of snow. Little cloud cover this week  
means our temps stay on the cold side and all we are expecting this coming  
week is snow showers off and on with the passing of the jet stream, but  
they say only maybe one of those might result in enough snow to have to  
shovel. I can live with this kind of January!
