View Full Version : Stupid ice storm.

01-14-2007, 06:28 PM
So, anyone out there feeling the effects of this latest winter storm. I feel cheated. It started on Friday afternoon before a three day weekend, and we're all iced in. We got about 2 inches of frozen rain, which looks like snow, but is actually just ice. It's really weired, you walk on it but don't sink in at all.

My cousin in Kansas said he got out at noon on Friday because of it. He was happy.

Yeah, it's been snowing in Kansas for a couple days now.

I heart it.

EDIT2: Detty, you're not clever.

PS--get rid of the heart emote. It sucks.

we've just got a crapload of rain. they say it'll freeze overnight though. FUN!

Here in Ohio we haven't even had snow yet.

Here in Ohio we haven't even had snow yet.

not true. you mean "Here in Columbus." we had a few inches of snow this week up near Cleveland/Chardon area. it all melted by friday, but whatever. the whole snow for a few days, then no snow for weeks is getting old though. been off and on since mid november this stupid cycle. i wish the weather would stick to one or the other. just as you're getting used to no snow, it snows, and vice versa.

Damn you, ford.

We've mostly had rain this winter, but tonight/tomorrow we're supposed to get freezing rain and snow.

01-14-2007, 07:00 PM
its just been raining all day here in dayton, ohio

01-14-2007, 07:05 PM
I <3 Canada.
Just the right amount of snow.

01-14-2007, 07:08 PM
It's been drizzling here in Boston, MA. I want snow. :( We had a little one morning in November but it melted by the time I had to go to class.

01-14-2007, 07:13 PM
No ice storm here. It's just been cold.

01-14-2007, 07:45 PM
Pretty much the same as Obi, a lot of freezing rain and sleet.

We've had a little snow here in Utah, but its the freezing temperatures that bother me most. Its 7 degrees outside right now, and the sun is just barely setting. We'll most likely get below zero tonight. And that just sucks, because I go to work before the sun rises.

01-14-2007, 08:17 PM
We haven't gotten any snow at all this winter. It's just rain.

I DID have a dream last night that it snowed a foot though. But one of my thoughts in the dream was "Too bad this is a dream and it didn't snow in real life". Yaay sorta lucid dreaming

Here in Louisiana I have my fan running. Yesterday I was shirtless. Some winter storm... If the weather doesn't start acting like it's supposed to I may kick El Nino's incorporeal rear.

We got ice here, too. Our entire street was one iced-over plane. We all had about a dozen beers and then went "ice-skating".

01-14-2007, 09:29 PM
I want some snow/ice/any-winter-type weather!

All we've gotten is rain, rain, and more rain. :saddowns:

01-14-2007, 10:06 PM
Snow? It's like 60 degrees Fahrenheit here. No snow, no ice, just rain. It is supposed to cool down to about 35 on Tuesday, though.

It's been warm up here in the 'great white north'. No snow that's stayed any good amount of time.

Supposed to snow tommorow though.

There was snow down here in Cincinnati one day this winter. Are you SURE you didn't get any? :p

01-14-2007, 10:36 PM
Ugh, I went to my girlfriend's at like 9:20 and had to leave at 10:00 because of the storm. That sucked.

01-14-2007, 10:49 PM
just got back from sledding

01-14-2007, 11:45 PM
Yeah.. I went sledding at my girlfriends house the other day, and had to leave after an hour because I didn't want to drive on iced up roads in the dark. I missed out on hot cocoa in a warm room :(

01-14-2007, 11:51 PM
You fool. You're supposed to spend the night at your girlfriend's house in that situation.

01-14-2007, 11:53 PM
Yeah. What the hell were you thinking? Why didn't you let her "warm you up".

Ok nevermind Ontario just got raped by old man winter.

01-15-2007, 02:08 PM
Actually, over here we got practically nothing. There was some freezing rain and stuff earlier, but right now it's right at freezing and just a bit foggy. Tonight it's supposed to get fairly cold and snow, though.

Over here in Stillwater, the entire campus has been shut down for the 3-day weekend. It's annoying, I can't get cheap or convenient food. Some fo my friends are trapped in their rooms because they can't get their cars out. I love my jeep...it's not even fancy, but it gets the job done the way it is.

Starting to get chilly down here...

01-15-2007, 04:13 PM
It looked like we were going to get tons of snow..then it started raining and stuff iced over. It sucks. :(

01-15-2007, 04:31 PM
Yeah. What the hell were you thinking? Why didn't you let her "warm you up".

Because it quite literally would have been sitting in a warm room drinking hot cocoa. Nothing more. Oh well. Time to try again.

01-15-2007, 05:11 PM
Oh you better. Get back there this instant, soldier.

01-15-2007, 05:30 PM
Shame, its been Winter for several months in Southern England and we've had no snow at all (not even frost). However at least I did not get showered by rain walking to town this morning (makes a change) :)
