Snow Day in O-Town

So; in a dazzling display of austerity and omniscience, carefully intertwined with untold misanthropic malice, Almighty God has called down a wrathful confluence of snow and ice upon the normally damp Northwest.

My hometown of Olympia, Washington is getting coated in wet snow, which rapidly is disintegrating to slush on all the roads. This has the marvelous effect of turning them into shitbrown troughs through the snowfall, like the skids your mother used to bleach off your tighty-whities.

What the fuck is up with this shit, God? Huh? This is probably our punishment for being a heathen town full of homosexuals and hippies.

And look what you're doing to downtown! Normally this time of year we just get deluged in rain for a month or two.

This a thread for people to talk about how much Goddamned snow we're experiencing. Even if you're not from the Northwest! This is also a thread where people from Godforsaken hinterlands like Michigan can freely lambaste us poor Nor'westerners for crying over a tiddly few inches of snow. You'll look like a jerk, but in the words of the all powerful Olmec from Legends of the Hidden Temple: "The choice is yours - and yours alone!"

TLDR: Bring it on, Jehova!

    It was 70 degrees here in PA 3 days ago.

    Yesterday, it was 30 and snowing.

    Today, it was sunny, and then tonight it rained.

    The fuck, God?

    we had football practice in the snow last night. It was fun except it was hard to run because of how much snow kept sticking in my cleats and then it was horrible trying to drive home in it.

    But I made a snow angel on the field!

    you live in Vancouver

    Go look in the direction from which the sun comes up. Yes that thing that lights up the apartment and tells you it's time to go to bed.

    Go climb one of those mountains.

    OH LOOK SNOW

    South Dakota had two seasons: too fucking hot and too fucking cold.

    So we moved to Seattle, where there's two seasons: gettin' kinda warm, and gettin' kinda cool.

    their = belonging to them

    We had a whole 4" of snow at my house in Portland today. But since the road went unplowed, it meant I got to telecomute, which really meant 'sledding with my daughter' for an hour or so before settling into work. It's all good. Dosn't look like any more snow is coming, but it'll probably all have turned to ice by the morning. That'll be fun

    I have no idea where you are, but I've been to Michigan 6 times in my life. There were tornadoes that touched down (always near a trailer park) less than a mile from me 2 of those times. I have no desire to go back.

    I'm in GA. A weather radio here will kill you with stress before it warns you of a real tornado. I think real ones are more common in the more rural parts of GA, but I've only heard of one touching down miles away, and they weren't sure it was a tornado.

    There was quite a bit outside my apartment this morning and I live maybe 10 minutes walk from downtown.

    Was...interesting to say the least?

    Also it started snowing in the middle of the day and I thought I was in a different city.

    On the flip side. I've been waiting since November for 7 days in a row to be above freezing and without rain so the construction guys can dig a friggin hole. I'll be lucky if we get that stretch before May.

    I've never heard 'O-Town' to mean Olympia either (but then never heard it to mean Orlando either).
    googlefight agrees with you though:
