First major snow storm of 2010-2011 Winter today
 
Hey everybody, maybe this will be a fun new thread, but i remember the "Snowpocalypse" thread from last year and wanted to make a new one.

I live in Stephens City, and right now we are experiencing the 1st major snowstorm of this winter. We had about a 1/2 of snow last Friday, but it was just a squall that came and went.

It is snowing to beat the band right now, and has been snowing since about 8:45 AM. We are supposed to get anywhere between 2 to 4 inches today. It was right around this time last year that the snow started, and as you know, it was a very snowy, record setting winter.

So is anybody getting snow where you are???

I'm in Springfield, VA and we're getting some snow right now. Supposedly we'll end up with 1-3 inches.

The downside to that is that I work 51 miles from my house...about 30 of which are spent on the beltway...the afternoon commute is definitely going to suck!

Already had snow a few times here in NY, think we've had flurries every day for the past week. Nothing major yet in my area, but Buffalo has already been hammered.

In Chansilly, VA. 1-3 inches projected. Shouldn't be too bad unless the forecast it just off.

It's funny how different areas react to snow. I think it's best displayed by school closings. I have family in Michigan, and they send their kids to school with snow boots so they can play outside during recess. Here it's projected to be 1-3 inches by 9PM and they are letting kids out early lol.

Me too, but the funny thing is, it isn't winter officially until December 21st, which is also my wife's birthday! 2 wonderful things that happen on the same day. Oh and I love snow, obviously, btw...

Move further north, you'll learn to hate the snow and cold in no time.

I'll second the f snow opinion. Just tried going to the bank and learned my car has little to no traction in a couple inches of snow. Saw that my neighbor t-boned a garbage truck at the entrance to my neighborhood, and that easily could've been me if didnt know how to work the emergency brake lol. I have no patience for it at all. It just needs to go away and stop disrupting my plans.

Weirdly enough, even though we haven't had the inches (that's what she said!) that we had last year, the roads are a billion times worse than the blizzard last year.

Its because its too cold for the chemicals to work that treat the road.

I just went outside the office and it looks like we have about 2" of snow here in good old Glen Burnie. Not much, but I'm glad I just installed new windshield wipers and that I grabbed my ice scrapper/brush before I left this morning.

Snowing in PA...just enough to cover the ground so far...MAYBE up to 1/4 to 1/2 inch by now.

No big deal. My son's been bugging my wife "I want it to warm up and snow so I can go out and play in it".

Mixing up us telling him it's too cold to go out and his desire for snow. Little kids can be funny like that.

Looked outside the window and it is still snowing here. Thats almost 8 straight hours with no break in it whatsoever. I thought it was stopping, but it picked up pace again about an hour ago.

We have about 3 inches outside right now, and the forecast called for up to 4, so it is right inline...10 more mins here and then its home to get out the snowblower and 4 wheeler...
