LOL from your Canadian friend.

Actually you need to lose the snow we are heading for Florida in 3 weeks to get away from the stuff. Nobody wants to drive through a state where it's snowing but nobody who lives there has snow tires! Not to mention the lack of salt on the roads, scary stuff.

I am glad you and your horses are enjoying the snow while it lasts.

That is funny, we are relocating from northern Illinois, and taking over a stable in Alexis N.C. so we hope that we have not jinxed the south-east cause we are so ready to get away from it. Wind chill here tonight is suppose to get 35-50 below.

argh... okay, so because of the rain this am, nothing is sticking and while it's been flurrying all day (lots at some times) and it's pretty... it's WET and MUSHY and it's gonna get way below freezing tonight, which means everything will be solid ice...which means no riding... i could have ridden in the snow, but not in the ice.

drats!!!! and windchills in the low double digits!!! that's VERY COLD for us thin blooded people and ponies!!!

argh... i just want to ride on my week off!!!

okay.. i'll quit whining... i think [Wink]

it was pretty though!

I am glad you have cheered up but bummed that you won't be able to ride on your week off. I have a friend who is in a wheelchair after riding on the ice and having her horse fall over on her. So do be careful. I think your picture is really cute.

I don't think I like Atlanta anymore. They got snow and it stuck! It just snowed pretty well for 2 hours and none of it stuck here in Athens. grrrr. and now i'm stuck at home b/c its all freezing on the roads and lord knows us southerners can't drive in such conditions.

hee hee. he is such a cutie pie!!

and yeah... hopefully i'll get to ride monday and tuesday... monday jumping and tuesday dressage lesson, even though it's gonna be COLD!! but.. tomorrow probably not.

yeah... we get ICE more than snow... basically it'll rain and snow, then the clouds go away and the temp plummets and we get ice. which... is worse than snow. way worse! and... yep, you can bet the grocery stores were bought out of milk and bread and toilet paper and water today. and people will be driving all of 2 mph tomorrow, which... is probably smart.

but yeah... we suck. on the news they had this guy who had just moved from illinois and he was saying how even he won't drive with the ice... and i'm thinking, he's really thinking he won't drive with us crazy loser ga drivers [Wink]

hee hee.

oh well. sorry chelsea! hopefully we can both find some fun stuff to do. Though i must say im' BORED!! and that's not a good thing for me... not when i'm used to having tons to do. sure... i suppose i could clean the house, but... that's no fun!! i need to do outside stuff but i'm too wimpy.

oh well.... see you monday chelsea?? [smile]

and thanks everyone for cheering me up [Crazy]

We were supposed to get snow too... we got a little last time, but during night so we barely saw it and today it completely missed us. I've heard about the snow we'd get tonight for days, but now it's bypassing us. [Roll Eyes]

We could have a foot to two feet by Monday am. The lake effect just started but the temperature is dropping so rapidly. The air is too dry...pretty sure it'll stop snowing. If it gets back above 15 degrees though, we could get a lot of snow.

[Wink] Want to come up and visit now?

My brother lives in Alabama, near Birmingham, and they got a few inches of snow. My nephew, who is almost 2, got to go play in it for his first time ever! He was so cute! He has a little lawn mower and he was mowing the snow.. rofl! Just POURING rain here and getting down to around 34 tonight. Tomorrows even colder though! And a high of 48 with 20mph winds.. yeh needless to say tonight I did NOT go to the Grand Prix.. I stayed my butt inside!
