    It's cold, wet and covers the ground. It's been falling in all directions for about 45 minutes and I don't know what it is!?!?... :confused:

    The real tragedy is that this stuff has blocked the satellite feed for the NASCAR race at our local Fox affiliate. :eek: Do you think it's the end of the world!?!?!? :eek:;):D

    Hopefully it wasn't trafficking some sort of drug. My dogs are going to be high as kites!... :eek:

    We had the same evil stuff falling when we got up this morning. It's mostly melted by now, luckily for Mother Nature. I'll slap the old bat into next week if I see anymore of the stuff here in Alabama.

    Dang. My house is covered too. Could it be some sort of structural dandruff? My roof could do with a good shampooing. I am going to need a BIG bottle of Selsun blue!:D

    The situation has escalated. The neighbors are totally covered in it and their children are outside acting very odd, running around screaming and such. Attached is a view back toward their house near the river.

    The other neighbors have pulled out their 4-wheelers and are riding around like mad people too... :eek:

    My wife was affected by the madness caused by this white stuff and saw fit to take our 22 month old son out to play. I think they'll both be alright but I'll keep an eye on them. :D :p

    Yeah, can you tell we don't get this stuff often? :D

    bcj1755, we got sleet just before the snow and I really didn't believe anything was going to stick. I'm still amazed.

    And I'm still amazed that Alabama got as much as y'all did... :)

    kingnothingugm, I'm still not so sure. You might be right about the structural dandruff. :D

    OK here is the fix ponycar17 so you dont miss the race, run down to the hardware store and get some heat tape for water pipes and duct tape, tape the tape to the backside of your dish and plug er in, It works ,no running outside in yer shorts to broom the snow off the dish !:D:D:D

    Nah, the TV was on earlier today and Fox Carolina was saying that their satellite feed was down due to the snow falling in the area. Right now, our TV is out too and the dish is on our roof 2 stories high. I can deal with no race and no TV. :D

    You might be onto something Pistol! There's no better revenge than to make us cold and stop the NASCAR coverage! :mad: :D:D:D:D ;):p

    Race sux on the crappy track not many that haven't lost it on the bumps and hit the wall or spun. Looks like it may be a Hendrick day

    Be careful. When it starts warming up that little booger will try to morph into water and sneak away. Don't let him. An acetylene torch is the only way to take care of him. :D:D:eek::eek:

    Argh! I'll be glad when this winter ends. I made it until today before I slipped on the ice and bashed my knee on the sidewalk! Owwwwwww! At least I didn't break my shootin' arm!

    Your little boy is super cute, by the way.
