Miss W what was the wind chill...just curious???
Snowing here today!!! 1-3 inches possible!!!
Carmen-They love 7-up. I have tons of literacy and math games but they love Heads Up 7-up. I just draw 7 numbers and they know what to do. I only have to direct them on how to do it the first inside recess. I get to do whatever I need to when they're in there.
DTR- Just 23*. We don't let them go out under 32*.
I remember 7-up and mum ball!!!
Miss W--- It sounds funny that seems like a warm wind chill...It seems like they won't let ours go out if the wind chill is in the twenties or teens... I can't remember which!!! Of course, we may have thicker gear here!!!
Probably. Our summers get up to 120*, and our winters down to 0*.
Where r u located DT?
I say let `em go outside unless a tornado's coming or it's raining. They can handle the cold and snow.
Today we got just a bit of snow. The children went outside while it was snowing - and loved it!!
windy and rainy..still in my pjs b/c I'm not going anywhere.
Finally sun today. More rain tomorrow. I hear a snow storm is coming Monday night. Can we say snow day?
We had snow last night and flurries this a.m. so we headed out by 9:30(all 10 of us) and soon others came out, too. It was so much fun and the kids just dove into the snow!!! We go out when it is 20 degrees and I never pay attention to wind chill...just has to be 20 degrees. Kids can take it...in fact the BEG me to take them out when it's 20 below!!! Now that's where I draw the line!
They are saying 3-5inches by morning. Ah, to be a weatherperson and always make guesses!!!
I don't know if we are getting snow tonight or not...but it seems so cold after it snows...that's the part I don't like. Where are located again Diznee? I forgot.

Grammy, Michigan!!! I think we got more than they predicted!!!
I'm in Houston and the last couple of days have been sooo nice. Chilli at night (40s) and 60-70s during the day. But on Saturday we are suppose to hit 80. I hate it when its hot during winter. I like wearing sweaters a couple of months out of the year. To be honest I don;t even own a real coat. I have a couple of cute jackets but thats it.
Lots of Big fluffy flakes just like a snow globe!!!!
We got some flurries this morning, wind is picking up and it is cold. I hear that we have a good old fashioned Nor'easter coming Monday night! Whoopie!!
I saw a gigantic snow globe at one of the dentists office. It was really neat. Taller than I am, and had a machine blowing the snow around in it. My cousin was telling me about them last year, but that was the first time I've seen one.
Miss W is that the blow up kind or a real glass one. I have a couple with blowers...I call the my Lazy Man snow globes!!!
I have seen the big blow up ones for outside use at Walmart and Target! They are great, but I won't spend the money for them. Maybe after Christmas, if any are left!
I didn't get close enough to see if they were plastic or glass. I'm sure they're plastic. This particular dentist office is always decorated really nice.
I've gotten blow up chacters the past 2 yrs...this yr I'd like the snowglobe cuz I collect glass ones & I probably won't get it!!!
I've never seen snowglobes this tall before. They're probably 8 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide. Really neat.
Sounds cool!! I love it when it snows like this!!!
Diznee! I know you get lots of snow up there in Michigan...it must be very beautiful. We don't seem to get the big blizzards here we used to. The weather is changing. We don't even get the bad summer storms . I love storms in all seasons so I feel cheated!
I thought it was really really cold in WI?
I think it was 18 degrees here today!
The weather man is on right now, talking about an "arctic" forcast. We are going to have frigid temperatures all week. On Saturday, late in the afternoon/evening, we will get one to three inches of snow with sleet and freezing rain. Oh, lovely.

Glenda you make sure and keep that stuff out there! We do not want it in New England!
Right now it's beautiful out but only 30 degrees, and sort of windy.

We got tons of snow now!!! YEAH! It looks so gorgeous outside and like a winter wonderland.
We didn't get too much snow last night. We got the lovely sheet of ice and then just a covering of snow. Lots of accidents on the roads and streets last night!
We got snow last night and this morning too! We only got about 2 inches, but it's the first accumulating snow we've gotten. It really feels like Christmas is coming now!
We got tons of snow at least 7 inches just today!
We're supposed to get a little more snow tonight and it's going to be VERY icy in the morning. Then I guess we're expecing more snow for Tuesday, but they're not sure how much yet. And so it begins....
I'm jealous of your snow!!!! Its in the 50s right now. I know that I would grow tired of the snow but it sure would be nice to have a winter white christmas for a change.
Hanvan.............I'll ship our snow to you!! It will arrive just in time for Christmas!!
I'm hoping we have some snow for Christmas. That really is the best. The lights on people's houses always look so pretty when there's some snow. I haven't gone out at all today, but I plan on driving around tomorrow night to look at the lights in the snow.
My husbands family is from ohio (columbus) and his grandpa still lives there but comes here for christmas and he says the same thing every year. I've been skiing but never actually seen snow fall from the sky. We are going to have to rent a cabin somewhere one year when we have kids and do christmas there so I can have my white christmas.
10 degrees tomorrow...that is how it is after is snows...cold and boring until it snows again...then it is usually in the 20 or 30's and that is warm for WI.
