You call this a "winter"? Please.

I love snow storms!
Plus, I had to buy my son new boots the other day... I want him to get some use out of them!!!

As my granny used to say, "Put up and shut up." It's winter, folks. Nothing we can do about it till spring.

I love skiing!

I don't understand the animosity towards winter from so many people. Why don't you try to embrace it, instead of hating on it?

Yay bring it on!...my snow machine and ice hut are begging me to take them fishing! LOL

This weather is going to make Mexico so much sweeter.......but hope to do a little ice fishing soon.

There's animosity toward this weather because not all of us care to embrace it.

I know I really don't like having to get up at 2a.m. to brush off the van and shovel the driveway in order to get to work on time for 3, but someone's gotta make the bread and if I don't, who will? Ok, fine, I mean besides the other 6 guys working at the bakery?

Er, what was my point again? Oh yeah, winter sucks! =D

Oh, and SooToday, midnight is a.m., not p.m.

Welcome to Northern Ontario, and part of the snow belt. We get snow here, and sometimes a lot of it all at once. If you don't like it... you're living in the wrong area. You'll move away before the snow does! Enough said.

WHY do all the media make you read an entire article to find out at the end "WEATHER WARNING CANCELLED"..????

It sure would be nice if they all put it under the headlines or title.....!!!

JUST A THOUGHT
