    Yup. Sure will. Denver won't see any snow till March and baltimore will be swimming in it. Well not swimming but you get my point.
    Crud. Next week's forecast says a small possibility for snow. NOOOOO!

    We had a winter storm warning last night and today. A warning not a watch. That usually means imminent, right? It turned out to be partly cloudy and 32-35. All winter storms should be so harsh.

    Speaking of warnings, if the national weather service issues a blizzard warning, stay home. I went to work for 5 hrs and took 5 hrs to get home.

    I want a blizzard. Seriously.

    I lived in Chicago for about 6 years in the mid to late 90's, and it was the driest, coldest period on record. So we had bitter cold temperatures and howling glacial winds, but no significant snowfalls. Plus, in 1996 I missed that enormous east coast blizzard that buried Virginia (my birthplace and where I live again).

    I don't know about you but my neighborhood still looks like that. After 3 weeks with one commute I am going to break out the MTB to ride 4 miles to the nearest park-n-ride rather than taking the bus from outside my home. That should scratch the itch. I wish I had the cash to pick up a decent used mountain bike rather than using my junker of a huffy.

    I just rode 20 miles and I was overdressed for 47 degree temps. C'mon winter! Make up your mind!

    I've reached the point of enjoying looking at pictures of snow.

    LOTS of snow over here in Alberta! They've had to close a couple major roads through the mountains because of avalanches. Where I live, the temperature is warm enough right now (about 0C) but that is just making the roads (which have not been plowed since the last snowfall) like skating rinks. And by Thursday, our high for the day is supposed to be -22C.

    So, all you people in the east ... I'll do what I can to send it all your way!!

    yeha it still looks like that in my neighborhood too.

    i live on a culdesac so they arent rushing to clear our street.

    got my studded tires last wekend though and have been commuting all week. the studs are a lifesaver, paticularly friday morning, which was the slickest, iciest dayi can remember riding, and the studs made it relatively easy.

    look for more snow this week, and some cold as hell mornings.

    I wanted a set of studded tires. However, I spent my money on a ksyrium elite wheelset. A lot of good that will do me in this weather. d'oh!

    We're getting hammered in Anchorage, and no Chinook winds! Lots of white stuff. The berms on the roadside are well over my head in most places.

    I know. Tonights forecast for the local region has a few snowflakes. i guess you are right

    I guess we can leave the forum opened. I hear that the snows in Colorado are not getting to the resorts. This is really freaky.
    FWIW I grew up in Utah and really miss the stuff.

    So I just checked out the local forecast on weather.com, and the prediction for today?

    "Today Jan 8 Cloudy 32/21 20% (chance of precipitation) Watch for Mosquitoes"

    Note that this is Minneapolis, Minnesota!

    Granted, the other days this week with chances of precip fall under the 32F high temp mark, so they say "Watch for ice and salt". I guess the mosquito warning is tied to that freezing mark, but even with global warming, I'm not prepared to worry about mosquitoes in January!

    Hmmm... I guess I'm also confused as to how our weather is now starting to give us salt . This is getting out of hand!
