They're saying there could be as many as 4 inches on the ground come nightfall. The snow has just started to fall. My bf is driving up from NJ this afternoon, and I'm terrified for him. I've told him to stay put til tomorrow afternoon, but he insists on driving today. My stomach will be in my throat all afternoon, until he arrives and buzzes to let him. I normally detest the shrill sound of that buzzer, but I think when I hear it this afternoon, it will be the most splendid, melodious sound in the world.
Sitting out here on Long Island waiting for the first flakes to fall. I love snow!
First flakes Falling!!!
4 inches in nothing when it comes to snow.
What R3 said. We just had 18 inches
Four inches is not a storm.
Four inches? Did you just relocate to the Northeast from Texas, dear? Four inches is a dusting. Get back to us when there's 20" or more, 'kay?
Let me guess, OP. You're the bottom?
Pussy ass whiney faggots.
Temp is 78 today. No snow.
Ohio here. We got about 8 extra inches from 9pm last night til early this morning. A fine, wet snow that stuck on everything (luckily on Saturday).
OP, thanks for your concern, but it's obvious this thread should have been titled
"OMG I can't believe I actually have a BF? Do you? I"m as excited as a little girl!"
May I say it?
Three words, OP: four wheel drive.
[quote] My stomach will be in my throat all afternoon, until he arrives and buzzes to let him.
Do you bake, OP? This is a time when you should be lighting the oven and and preparing a good ol' fashioned Apple [favorite fruit] Pie.
[quote]I normally detest the shrill sound of that buzzer
Me, too. I had a str8 guy with the correct tools hook up a good ol' fashioned bell, now I love the sound of people arriving at my door.
You & me...we're the same kind of gay, OP. Do you have a copy of Unmarried Woman (or Julia) in the house? Watch it while you wait. It ALWAYS does the trick for me when I'm feeling anxious, along with the baking.
Honestly, people are such pussies nowadays.
First fucking snowflake, school is cancelled and everyone shuts down. We used to know how to deal with this without losing our minds....
OP, I live in Albuquerque...no storm.
I need at least ten inches before I call it big.
it always strikes me as really odd the way news covers snow in new york city: it's hype bordering on hysteria.
it seems unreal to me that in a city with as much going as new york has; and in a city where snow is a perfectly normal and predictable feature of city life, that the news coverage should be so over the top.
not to mention, i hate the assumption that snow is a bad thing. personally, i love it.
We should have a poll for the maryest opening comment for a thread. This one would surely be a contender.
[quote] I normally detest the shrill sound of that buzzer, but I think when I hear it this afternoon, it will be the most splendid, melodious sound in the world.
OP, have you never confronted a REAL problem?
Even in Atlanta we don't consider 4" much snow. Did the OP just arrive from Guatemala?
A "big storm" must be at least a foot of snow, even in the South.
OP when you get another 10 inches with that , high winds, blizzard conditions and loose power get back to us about your misery.
It's summer where I am so a snowstorm would really be surprising.
We havent had any snow this year, and I live in Denver. Global warming can kiss my ass.
Any kind of snow will FREAK ME OUT. NO, I don't want to be cold.
R21 and R23 LOL. :)))))))
[quote]A "big storm" must be at least a foot of snow, even in the South.
Huh? About an inch and a half and people go berserk. Even a prediction of snow causes a run on the grocery stores in the South.
For god's sake gurlfriend...you are a gay man! We don't fret over anything under 8 inches for its totally do-able. And if its more than 8 inches...well have a drink to relax your spinchter and use some more lube.
OP's BF never showed. After OP waited all night baking pies, listening to Vikki Carr, and writing BF's initials on the frosty windowpanes.
OP is now flailing about in the East River in black sequined ballgown, screaming, dark mascaraed tears running down his puffy cheeks.
I wanted to write how adorable the OP sounds but instead I found myself listening to Vikki Carr and laughing at the responses.
Is it snowing?
I'm meeting friends at the beach tomorrow. There better not be any damn snow.
I got my shovel ready. Am looking forward to being stuck in the house and catching up on my shows.
Im gonna stay on my setee and watch old movies.
Temp here is 19 and it just snowed!
You bumped a 2 year old weather thread, R41...to tell us that?
On top of that you don't even say where you are.
OP, we all don't live wherever the hell it is you live.
More incredibly dramatic news: I am completely out of milk!! I have been nursing several gin & tonics this afternoon, praying to heaven above and all the powers that be that the grocery boy will somehow make it up the steps to be able to deliver the precious cargo safely to my door! But until that moment happens I shall be nothing more than a frantic case of nerves! I am on the verge of a COLLAPSE!!!
Oh, be nice to OP, he was obviously traumatized by the snowflakes. Who wouldn't be! In olden days, they thought the sky was falling!
I know the guy that posted this (OP). He died last year in a car accident. Seeing this thread really caught me off guard and made me fight back tears.
Claudette Colbert lived in my building. With her lover Helen O'Hagen. As relevant as a two year old weather thread.
I wish snow was blue.
Joey, you can make snow blue with windshield wiper fluid.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
