Several feet of snow on the ground.  I don't think having a white Christmas is going to be a problem for me. :P

Cool. The SF/Bay Area is incapable of a white Christmas, so if I want one, i have to move, and that isn't going to happen soon.

All the snow has almost melted here. But a white Christmas is a very rare occasion here anyway, so I don't mind it too much.

They're calling for so much snow in Philly that the Eagles game got postponed until Tuesday.

It started snowing around 2 p.m. today and I'd say there's probably about 3 inches on the ground now.  But it's not supposed to stop until some time tomorrow.

I'm just waiting to see what will happen with my work...I'd really like to find out if the office is even going to open tomorrow BEFORE I try to dig out my car and drive all the way out there.

Not as much as you wkiml, but we got 14 inches up here.  Going out for the 3rd time to snowblow.  Damn wind!

The wind has been absolutely insane! Gusts up to 60 mph. As far as snow goes, my final total was about 8 inches, but the drifts created from the wind have been crazy. Also lots of limbs all over my yard but knock on wood, I have not lost power, and many around me have so I am very thankful for that.

Man, we really dodged a bullet.

I live in a suburb just west of Philly...center city got about a foot, but my neighborhood (not ten miles out of center city) only got about 4 inches.  My boyfriend and I had our driveway and front walk dug out and our cars brushed off within an hour and a half. 


And wkiml, you're right...you'd think NJ would be better equipped to handle snow...your area definitely got hit the hardest this time...but shit...after all the snow the tri-state area got last year, you'd think they would have put a better plan in place.  I remember last year there were literally igloos built into snow banks in my area that were as tall as I am.  Crazy.

Or maybe businesses should just stop trying to fucking open when it snows.  It would save a lot of bullshit.

And I actually don't mind shoveling snow that much.  It's a pain in the ass when it's timed as such when I have to get up early and dig myself out and still go to work.  But if I can do it on my own time, it's kind of fun. 

What you have to do:

1.  Take a bottle of your favorite vodka (or several bottles of beer, or whatever) and stick it in the snow (you know, to keep it cold)

2.  Do a shot before you start shoveling

3.  Dig a path to your car, turn on the stereo, and CRANK IT UP.  (I find Pantera is best for this activity)

4.  Continue to shovel, and do shots periodically as you progress.


And if you keep moving, you'll find that you're not even that cold.

This is actually how I wound up becoming friends with my next door neighbor.  My boyfriend and I were out shoveling and he came over to help us (bless him).  All I could offer him in return was a shot.  Turns out he's a vodka enthusiast, so we've been friends ever since  :D
