Anyone who's been in a snow/ice storm anywhere in Texas south of the panhandle, knows you get a snow day to keep everyone off the roads!

Kind of like Californians in the rain. :)

But the first snow of the year is always pretty. Just had 1' up in Laramie 2 weeks ago.

What's 'snow'?

Is it that white stuff that I saw the other day on the top of a hill?:)

Spoken like a man that never seen Texan trying to drive on ice. If you're not on the road with them it's entertaining. If you ARE on the road with them it's harrowing. :eek:

Driving on ice is fun.:)

Last time we had a major snowfall I had to drive 30 miles or so to work, and not all the roads were gritted.

It was like playing an arcade game - but the bad/good part was that when I'd finished the 'mission' I was met by astonished faces and told to go home.:)

That wasn't as much fun because by that time the ice had melted.:rolleyes:

PS I'm not recommending driving on ice.:)

Driving on ice is not my favorite thing to do. Snow's OK, even blowing snow, I can handle (think heavy snow, 25 mph winds and [really] flat land with few trees). But ice or freezing rain? I've driven on it when I've had to. But when I greet such weather with "oh, this should be fun", believe me the sarcasm is unmistakable. :wink:

I wasn't really being serious that it's 'fun', in fact it can be a nightmare, and dangerous.

I don't think I would advise driving in snow or on ice in your part of the world, or anywhere else.

The last time I saw snow in the States was in the mountains above Albuquerque, and that was in the summer of 1980.

Also visited Houston, but that was just a stop-over and it was so hot we couldn't even sit down on the seats in the departure lounge.

Over here if there is any sign of even a flake of snow/ice we are advised not to travel, by car, bus or train.

I think maybe i should get my coat.:coffee:

:confused: What's the fuss about? It snows- you drive. It freezes-you drive. I'm almost always travelling by bike (bicycle to make it absolutely clear), no matter what the road conditions are. :) If the wether is foul you just go extra careful with your car and use the handbrake to slide around corners... Snow and ice IS fun! :eek:
