    so I wake up this AM to I dunno, 6" 8" of snow, I'm really not sure. A lot considering it was 40 yesterday. So at 8:30 I head to campus for work, NOTHING is plowed, all the streets sucked.
    so I'm at work until 12:30 then class at one. and they FINALLY decide to shut down campus. WHYYYYYYYY do they wait until 12:30 to close down? after everyone has driven into town, only to turn around and go back?

    Heehee. My wife is from Montana. She said North Dakotans were usually the butt of many jokes. [​IMG]

    The high today in Los Angeles is supposed to be somewhere around 78 degrees. But, then, the cost of living in L.A. sends shivers through my entire system. Win some, lose some.

    We're having 80 degree weather here in Bama... and with low taxes and low cost of living too! Of course.. then you have to live with 30 year old technology... and dial up networking, and... well.. the list goes on and on. I love it tough.

    I grew up in NH, but live in central CA now. It's currently sunny and in the 70's.

    I live in central Arkansas... What's this snow thing I keep hearing about? [​IMG] As a rule, we never get much snow here, (hardly more than 1" most years) but we usually get at least one big ice storm every winter between late December & mid February. I'd take 3' of snow over 3" of ice anyday.
    It's in the 80s today but looking to drop into the 50s for the rest of the week. Beautiful weather for a fall foilage hike. [​IMG]

    Man, I can't imagine living in Montana, Oregon, or North Dakota since Toronto GTA (5.5 milion people) is officially the smallest populated city that I have lived in. [​IMG]

    It really sucks living in Central Florida. It was 85 today and humid - but it's supposed to cool off to 75 on Friday!

    I had a friend who moved from Fargo to Melbourne, FL and then after a year decided to move back to Fargo. I've never been able to figure that one out. I can't bear it when it gets under 70 degrees!
    It continues to amaze me how many people are from central Florida on here.

    I went to the U. of N. Dakota for 2 years. You can hardly imagine the brutality of winter there! A flock of frat boys "streaked" down the boulevard in -18 F weather to set a record, only to have it broken by some Alaska frat boys the next day. The most fun thing about the cold was taking a cup of hot water outside and throwing it up into the air, instant snow!
    I was outside, briefly I might add, one morn when it was -48 F!!!, Actual temp, the windchill was -93! My car had no oil-pan heater and I had to pay for a truck to come and thaw it out many times. They'd put a heater under the car and thaw out the brake lines and jump off the dead battery.
    The dorms had tunnels to connect them to each other and the mess hall so you didn't have to go outside. There were no tunnels to classes. The day it was -48 classes were canceled because it was too cold to go outside. I used to go to hockey games to warm up.... Is Frenchie's bar stille there? That was my fav! Best wishes!
