    No kidding. It's actually dissapointing. The Frozen Tundra has become the Spongey Meadowland.

    My wife & I are from IN but live in MS at the current time. In June of 2000 we moved down here & our first winter here we were watching the news & they said that b/c MS & TN were going to get 1 yes 1 in. of snow they shut the schools down. ROFL!!! Then one night the predicted an inch of snow & shut the schools down. The next morning NO SNOW. But they already shut the schools down. It's crazy

    We'll get socked in April, just like last year. My spring break begins April 6 and I'm expecting we have our first "real" snow at that time. This is Wisconsin. It's weird.

    Saw the buckets hanging on the maple trees this weekend, about a month a head of schedule. One collector said the sap has been running fairly steady already.

    Today I saw a number of cheesey folks in shorts, some in sandles too. Then I saw a guy cruisin' in his convertable with the top down. Of course, it was 40 degrees today so, no wonder, right?

    Yeah, I think I saw that same guy running away from the repo man too.
    If he paid his bills then he would have no reason to run.

    I know I've posted in here b4 but living in a city where there is a pro team would be totally awesome! Especially the Packers when u consider the history of the team. Also,I live about 10 min from Memphis TN currently. Memphis had a chance to get what is now the TN Titans but the past mayor(whowas mayor at the time looking to run for congress) Willie H. opened up his fat mouth & so the rest is history. Even if they had came to Memphis I'd still be adie hard Packers fan as I have been the last 15 years.

    Visited the kid's school last night. Saw on the little kids hooks their snowpants and boots. Above them were their baseball gloves. Yes, spring in Wisconsin. Snow on Mon and Thurs and baseball on Wed and Friday.

    or white Thanksgiving
    Or a white St. Pat's day
    or a white Easter
    or a white Mother's Day

    Actually Christmas is closer to 60% chance of being white or in that ball park. TV stations make a deal of the chances when it is close.
    My parents got married Christmas day 20 miles from GB, 40's and rain according to pops. I've made a motorcycle run on New Years weekend. Again, my niece had snow for her wedding first weekend of October. The odds ARE better than where you are coming from though.

    Forget global warming and fire up the grill. Dump more CO2 into the air. This I can handle. Polar bears and penguins can learn to swim (OH that's right they do!)

    Just read that Wisconsin is one of the worst states to retire in - partly because of the miserable weather.

    That's good. Keeps the riffraff out and reduces the number of slow drivers.

    Not to mention one of the highest state income taxes in the country.

    We're in MS right now. 10 min. from Memphis. What's SO funny about living down here in the winter is that if they get 1/2 in of snow they shut the schools down. Seriously. One night on the news the predicted about 1/2 in or better so they went ahead & shut the schools down. The next morning NO SNOW! But they had already announced no school. Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzy

    That's just SO SO SO ridiculous!!! Yes WI does get it's share of snow BUT when you have the Packers that makes up for it totally!!! IF your not a Packers fan(your crazy if your not)then think of snow sleddin',snow ball fights,u can plant bermuda grass so it'll die sooner & u won't hafta cut ur grass as much. I could go on & on But the Packers says it all!

    Looking to move up there the end of Aug. or the 1st week of Sept. at the latest. Sooner if possible. I found the house I want. In all seriousness I asked God for a house by Lambeau Field. One became available so I asked God that whoever looks at it won't want it. As soon as I can sell my house & get things in order I'm there.
