Atlanta gets snow almost every year. Usually more ice too. I came from Southern MO too, so I'm used to it. I just lived in Florida too long so now it'* not common again yet.

Korea got a good amount.

we havent got any snow to stick around here yet, its kinda freakin me out, usually we have a couple storms with at least an inch or two by now. there has been a couple years there was half an inch on Halloween. makes me wonder when we are really going to be hit.

i hate driving in the city when its snowing, poeple always drive stupid slow or just stupid.

Nothing has stuck here yet either, supposed to get some snow this weekend though so we will see. One of the Almanacs said N Central is supposed to get hit with a few blizzards in the next three months so we'll see if they are right or not...lol. I hope it holds off for 2 more weeks though. I don't like to take pictures of a dirty car.

do you see snow? no. why did i have to idle for my entire commute. took a 30 min commute and turned it into a 2 hour commute. i thought i teleported to chicago somehow lol. its still "snowing" but with the sun its 33 so its not sticking.

i think everyone in memphis should spend a month, or even a week in chicago in February. itll fix the highways here after that lol.

*end rant*

When I was in Florida, it snowed at the end of 09. I lived 20 miles away. I was like "cool, snow." Then they announced that if we lived town X (where I lived) we could leave to get our kids since they were letting out the schools.

It snowed for all of 20 minutes and nothing stuck to the roads.

nice. we're going up to chicago for the auto show in feb, and possibly new years. im planning on borrowing a car and teaching her to drive in the snow. (in an empty parking lot with no light poles of course) preferably one with a hand brake so i can teach her how to get out of slides and cause them myself... ill be sure to take some vids lmao.
