    I ain't complaining. I've never had to shovel it, it's very pretty, and it is still pretty novel for me (we've missed most of the major snow up until now). Sure, the salt is a pain in the ass and the slush is awful, but all in all I still like snow.

    The one and only. The snow tends to cover up the general crappiness of the town.

    Supposed to get another foot tonight. Great. My car is already stuck in the driveway in the few inches of snow/slush/mud.

    they booted us for the summer olympics which was lame. Whiteface (Lake Placid) has held the winter olympics for 2 times back in the 1930's and in 1980. I need to go ski at whiteface. snow snow snow and more snow! i'm excited, i love snow.

    Was up in Lake Placid about 3 weeks ago on my way home from Albany. Plenty of snow and Whiteface/Adirondacks rock! Such a fun drive too.

    I don't get the complaints. Sure, slush sucks to walk in (most people don't find the ice as entertaining as I do, either,) and salt rusts your fancy italian sports car, but the joys of snow more than out weigh the drawbacks. I would be out there enjoying it while I could. We got nothing here all winter and the flowers are even starting o bloom now so we seem to be SOL this year.

    Basically it's a bunch of meteorologist geeks that post like mad judging the new maps and 24/48/80 hr storm projections. They're scary good.

    It sucks when your usual 1 hour commute turns into 3 hours each way. People are morons that don't know how to drive in snow.

    That's actually a cool way to get weather updates. I've always thought there had to be a better or at least alternative way to get weather reports than from a few overly paid tv personalities and their flunkies who don't seem to be that accurate anyways.

    ForcastFox links directly to Accuweather, but I guess your method is a bit better, since forums probably get updated every 15 minutes or so probably.

    Do you use Firefox? Just get the extension for it.

    And Accuweather is dead on, it's been raining for the last 7 hours or so here.

    I don't check on it unless I hear of an upcoming snowstorm or blizzard. Right now they're predicting around 2 feet for my area slightly northwest of NYC with 50+ mph winds and power outages. Next week there may be another blizzard with similar snowfall.

    oh wow i pass thru that town as i go to Vermont to go skiing at Stratton, Killington or Okemo. It's a cute little town with too much traffic for that one little main road.

    i like walking in the slush. i wear my boots and step in it. i love watching it squsih to the side. i love driving in it too to send snow flying everywhere. yeah its messsy and all but its not that bad. i agree there are more pro's then cons.

    people can't drive regularly you expect them to do it right in the snow? they can't do rain either. thats why we have accidents.

    Sometimes when I'm in a morbid mood I think of how people back home in LA would react to and drive in this.
