23 and SNOWY. We have gotten SO MUCH SNOW over the past few days. Dropped about 7 inches on us. Super beautiful, but because it's the first snowfall of the year, people drive like...well, you know whats.

Not a bad idea, but I was too lazy to make them from scratch.

If I'd really wanted a warming bit of Mexico, I would've popped open the bottle of Esperanto Añejo - :wink: - but I was going for something shared with the wife.

Highs have been in the 20s, about 5inches of snow still on the ground. We have gotten over a foot all together over the last few days.

Temperatures tonight are expected to reach the single digits.

We are not amused.

It's in the high 20s or low 30s right now, and it's snowing ever so slightly. When I first moved to Knoxville, I was told that it never snows here, but this will be the second winter that we've received snow, and this one's shaping up to be even whiter than the last.

That's nice for a guy who grew up with Florida and Alabama winters!

After reading the temps on this thread I have come to the conclusion I am moving in with coco.

It is snowing, and remains colder than a sorceress's mammaries in a copper-tin alloy brassiere. It's darn warm by Rusty's standards, I'm sure- 27 and falling.

Well.. the snow keeps coming ... and then melting. Early this morning the ground was bare again with only a light covering in the most shaded parts of the woods. We'll see if this one stays. It's a big light reflector for me so it means a revisit to the Aspen stand with those low warm rays from the sun. Of course there has to be sun too. It's a been a while since sun. That's the trick we need sun plus snow that is not too deep. So far any sun or rain and the snow has been melted. It's tough when one's props melt away. :D

Well, the quotes got screwed up, but it's White Christmas - both Rusty's original and my "all that snow" comment.
