    I bet living in America is so cool. Ugh being stuck in England sucks!

    England is cool, you guys have Boris Johnson and Russell Howard!

    You can't compare "America" with England. Even if you mean the US rather than the whole continent, it's too varied. Manhattan at Christmas is nothing like, say, Miami at Christmas. Toooooootally different. Sure, it's different in England too, but not to the same extremes.

    Edit: England is cool. But. Not because of Boris and Russell, though one of them is hilarious. Jaffa Cakes, maybe.

    Snow is so over rated. We got about an inch of snow/slush yesterday and they're saying another inch or two today and I'm already over it. I want to see it in my game not in my driveway.

    Well in London six misplaced snow flakes will cause the entire rail and tube system to grind to a halt. I exaggerate for effect, but not by much. :wink:

    What does in not snow much in London or what. I know in the southern part of the US 1 inch of snow can shut down an entire city, but that is because they are not use to it. It's pretty funny to anyone who deals with snow every winter.

    Oh, it snows. The rail infrastructure just can't cope with it, and for some reason, people here aren't really prepared for it, either. Most people don't own a pair of snow boots, don't know how to drive in the snow, that sort of thing. So for the one week each year (round my way anyway) when it snows and you get a few inches, everyone sort of goes "OHMYGODSNOW", works from home, drives like a moron and gets stuck, falls over on the pavement, the trains stop running, etc, etc. It's like everyone's happy to just malfunction for a week instead of, y'know, preparing and dealing.

    No snow here. Just a warm and humid 83 degrees in South Florida.

    Oh, well I think it's like that everywhere. It's the same here as well. It snows every year, several times a year here, and people somehow forget what snow is. It's a weird phenomenon.

    Snowing in my town. Schools are closed and everyone's in a panic over a few inches. I have lived on the East Coast now for 20 years (3 different states) and it never ceases to amaze me how people can be such idiots about snow. I grew up in Eastern Washington so I'm used to it but it had to be a blizzard before we got a snow day from school.

    Saw a guy driving at least 60mph with chains on!!! The road was wet but bare, sparks were shooting all over the place. I was petrified that one of the cable chains would snap and come flying at me. People are nuts I tell ya! :shock:

    Yeah, and anybody who watched the Eagles game Sunday knows that even a BLIZZARD doesn't stop Philadelphians. Especially LeSean, it would seem. (I could almost understand why the PLAYERS kept playing ... They're gettin' paid. But the FANS? That was insane. And FUN for us Californians to watch!)

    Oops. Off topic. No, wait. The topic is real snow. And that was real snow! :)

    The Eagles are never off topic :D Well, if your a fan like me it isn't. Especially with Dallas losing last night.
