Walking in a winter wonderland

Post by RascalJones »

Yee-haw! 6-10 inches of snow on the way!!! YEAH! Spring is almost here.


*sigh* The drive home tonight should be an adventure to say the least. My bet is that my 40 minute drive will take me no less than 90 minutes tonight.

That's what happened to me last night. There were places around here that had 9-10 inches of snow. Took almost 2 hours to get home (35-45 minutes normally) and it's supposed to be 70 tomorrow afternoon and snow again on Sunday!!!!

Come on up to Ohio, and find out!

I actually don't mind it most of the time, I'm just ready for something different. We've had enough for the year.

Yeah, but then civs not use to winter would not be able to counter so then some civs would need a boost. :neutral:

Maybe a snow fort card could be added.

I heard there was snow in Dallas but is it really snow, or just ice? I think 1" of snow is a joke to some of the Northerners here.

The first real snow I ever seen was when I took my family to Colorado. My 5 year old son wanted to bring some home. I don't think he got the concept yet...

We had spots with 9 - 10 inches..I've been in Jersey when it was "really snowing" I can compare, this was real snow...
