    jason2, Where abouts are you at? I just heard from someone in
    Bend, OR that he has about 8" on the ground and it's falling at about an inch per hour.

    Mark,

    I live in northeastern washington. About 40 miles NE of Spokane.
    So far today I'm guessing 5 inches here and no signs of it letting up. I live about 7 miles outside of Newport, WA. Ran in to get gas, and ended up pulling two cars out of the ditch, a third was able to get out with help of people pushing.

    What turned out to be a 30 minute round trip for gas took over 2 hours. Still haven't got the call to plow, expect it tonight. Plowed my own driveway.

    I'm with SlimJim. North and western part of state got hit hard the other night, we didn't even get a flurry. You can always tell when it should be snowing but isn't, the number of posts quadruples. I should be warming the truck up right now, but instead I'm enjoying a cold one typing away at the computer.

    p.s. what does LOL stand for

    yep... snow in Texas

    Was watching the Garth Brooks concert last night from South Padre Island, Texas.

    30 degrees and snowin like a banshee. Don't think it was stickin on anything but the Drums and the Guitars.

    Funny watchin an outdoor concert with Palm trees all around and snow blowing around like crazy.

    Yet Garth Kept playin like the professional he is.


    The show (snow) must go on!!!!
