I grew up in VA where it snowed fairly often. Then moved to the Northwest suburbs of Chicago for 5 years and saw more snow than a person should ever have to see. Moved to Central Texas 25 years ago in hopes of never seeing another snowflake in my life. My plan has been foiled again batman!!

I know this is nothing compared to what a lot of you folks are used to but it's insanity for this part of the country. At least we knew it was gonna be a nasty day weather wise so got my chili going early this morning to slow cook all day. Football, chili, cornbread, and beer are in my suture for today.

Up here? Hold my beer! I think you're wise not going out Robert. Some folks haven't a clue on how to drive in that.

That amount of Snow could shut down the State! My kids were born and raised with PA weather. Lows in the 20's and Snow measured in Feet. We lived outside of Atlanta for a year. The locals wore Parkas when the temp dropped below mid 60's. My kids went to school in Shorts and a Hoodie! They got 1/2" of Snow one day mid January and they shut down all the effected counties. There were multiple car pile ups on the highways! Boils down to what you are used too...JJ

If you get enough snow all the neighbourhood kids can have some fun making snowmen and having a good old snowball fight. I’ve yet to experience a winter without snow and I don’t want to, too much fun would be missed. Skiing, tobogganing, hiking, skating on frozen lakes, ice fishing... Not to mention some of the “other” fun we have, frozen fingers, toes, water line, cars....

Better enjoy your chili and beer! We always chuckle when the south gets snow... nobody knows how to drive in it, cars going everywhere. Usually like that up here for 1st snow, they seem to forget!

I just thought of , and I hesitate to say “ good things “ that will come out of this unexpected snowfall. It’s going to make for some new YouTube content about drivers who can’t drive in these conditions. There out there. I’ve seen them.

I remember a few of those kind of days in South Texas. 80 degrees in the morning, then mid 30's by late afternoon. No snow, though, but 100 miles away in Central Texas it was snowing! Called 'em a Blue Northern.
