I can't believe all the people that were soooo concerned that we would get a ton of snow!! They were never saying more than 2-4 inches and even that was a day or two ago. Even yesterday all that was predicted for Detroit and south was 1-2 inches. Although they say we could still get more later this morning I will believe it when it happens.

tee hee hee... Mother Nature is sitting back yelling "psyche" LOL!! My mom messaged me yesterday warning me to be careful with the "winter storm" approaching, but when I looked at the radar maps myself, it was obvious that is was a warning for those more north of us.... once again we get just the tailing edge of the 'storm'......

<3 it :) :)

I'm happy there is next to no snow. Snow means extra work for dh that he really doesn't have time for. My dh is a sub-contractor with Canada post and when it snows he has to go clear the mailboxes that the postperson goes to get the mail. Its alot of mailboxes and it takes 2 or 3 days of 12 hours each day. While he's doing that he can't work for our business. But the money is good and sometimes we don't have work that can't be rescheduled.

YAY!! No snow!!

I can't stand snow, so I can appreciate where you are coming from, but if your hubby needs to be home for your home based business then why not give up the sub contract job with Canada Post. :)

I understand, but if Athena is hoping for it not to snow b/c of their home based business then there are LOTS of people that need that job, in my honest opinion.

We're likely getting up to 10cm up where I'm at tonight. I don't mind snow as much now that we have a snowblower, but I wanted to go to Ottawa this Sunday, so hopefully I can still make it.

:)

I complain about juggling work and kids and life, but I can't imagine somebody telling me that I should give up my kids or job to someone else who needs kids or a job. It sounds like Athena is saying they need the work and are willing to work very hard, but if it snowed today they would have a difficult time juggling it all. I can't see this as being a valid reason to tell anyone to give up a job.

I used to work 3 jobs at once, with one of them being full-time. I could still barely make ends meet, and if I had given up one of those jobs I would not have been able to pay my bills every month. There were times I had trouble juggling schedules for 3 jobs, but that didn't give anyone the right to tell me that I should give up a job.

Your logic is faulty.

Isn't that always the way? Lots of work with the home based business=lots of contract job work. Slow spell with home based business=no snow. I feel your pain!!

I won't stoop to your level,LOL.............. but a lot of ppl think (including me) that you are just an argumentative person (and that is being nice, not the word I want to put here)

She was complaining about the snow, and that her husband would have to go shovel snow for CANADA POST (paid well) but in the same sentence she said that her husband can't do his home based business, it sucks, but sometimes you got to suck it up, jesus christ ALL YOU DO IS NITPICK...I was simply suggesting THAT IF her husbands home based job was their main bread adn butter then maybe give up the contract Canada Post JOB

You're too kind to not stoop to my level.

You started the nitpicking regarding Athena's post and I disagreed with you. If you can't handle being disagreed with, then maybe you would want to refrain from posting your opinions, or refrain from coming back to look at replies to your opinions.

We got nothing in Toronto. All the news stations were preparing us and when I woke up this morning there was a very light dusting. It's been REALLY windy today, but there was no snow, more like rainy, wet snow with no accumulation. As much as I hate the snow, I rather the snow than the mud/rain.
