Let it Snow!! Are you watching it or playing in it?

Anybody else in the southeast seeing the white stuff. We are really gettin' it here in the Appalachian mountains. This is the best snow my daughter has seen in her lifetime (10 yrs). I am stoked for her.

Still waiting here in Pa though it looks like Freedo in his erea will see a little more then I will in central Pa. Don't plan on playing in it just pushing it off the driveway while the boys play. neutral

Re: Let it Snow!! Are you watching it or playing in it?

Sounds like I would rather be where you are. On the other hand I would rather be were I am at compared to these other guy's. It's very moderate here. That's why snow is thought of more as entertainment. To bad I can't afford another hobby, right now our skier's and snowboarders are having a blast.

Re: Let it Snow!! Are you watching it or playing in it?

Snow??!?

I have to drive 4 hours and spend 1000.00 to see snow. lol

I just look at pictures of the internet and read wikipedia to see what it is.

Congrats on your daughter digging it, cant wait for mine to check it out.


The battery is discharging, the oil temperature is very high, the oil pressure is very low, water temperature is off the chart and I am running out of petrol...but the clock is correct.

TuRBo Todd, Those are sweet! How do you acquire snowboards to cut into? I actually bet there is a fun factor better than snow boards on those.

That's funny!
Yeah she can't stop looking out the window. In the past we usually get 4-5" of wet snow at most, as of right now it's about a foot of the good stuff. I know this isn't much compared to those up north, but it is extreme for here.

Re: Let it Snow!! Are you watching it or playing in it?

Yeah, it's still coming down here pretty hard. Member Tiggy1190 called me earlier and said it was pretty bad over his way. I think he lives over in your folks neck of the woods. The news at 5:00 said it was already at 9" at the news station. Enjoy the slopes.

Isn't it crazy! Were not that far from you, it's amazing what a little elevation will change. Well maybe it's not a little elevation?

JimiB. I snowboard, and so far, these are pretty high up on the "stoked meter". They are FUN. My friend works at a ski resort and they were tossing some old rental boards. 2 down, 1 to go!

Can you take those on the slopes? Are they allowed? They look like they would be a blast for sure. I might have to make one for my daughter? maybe I can find an old snow board and a used scooter. I know at Christmas my friends bike shop sales a lot of the scooters, so maybe I can score one after the new wear's off for some kid. lol

Re: Let it Snow!! Are you watching it or playing in it?

I was out trying to do Christmas shopping in this stuff. All the stores and restaurants were closing early, like around 7:00pm. Cars were all over the roads, and the DOT crews here are clueless. Thankfully I grew up in Cleveland so this was pretty tame by my standards.
