    Listen to this.....I woke up this morning to find this strange white stuff all over the ground and our vehicles. Believe it or not, it was falling from the sky! I kept falling all morning until about noon, then it stopped. The natives in this area call it "SNOUGH". not sure of the spelling. Apparently they get that here from time to time. Huh, first time I saw it this year.:confused:

    Yes you are correct...although the proper spelling would be "snow". Snow used to fall on a quite regular basis some years ago... unfortunately this weather event is becoming more and more of a thing of the past... soon it will be nothing more than a legend like the Edsel...

    Those big yellow,red or white things that look like dozer blades that you see sitting in driveways are called snow plows.They are used to move snow around and make piles. They are not really meant to be sitting in one place for so long.

    The weather man tonight said with glee:
    "We are ontrack to have the least Snow-est January on record"
    Why are they so happy it's not snowing? Is snow bad? Is snow-est a word?

    I have heard that legend has it, that if lake effect snow is falling at all, Watertown NY is getting it. A City called Cleveland and the area around it used to get lake effect snow but it's not happened in at least a month or more?
