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.
Is everyone ready for the big snow storm?

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?

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!"

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!
