Snow, Snow and Snow

Post by vince90 » Fri Mar 11, 2005 2:58 pm

There will be another winter storm coming tonight in our area. According to the weather broadcasting there will be snow accumulating up to 12 inches. So far we have got about 88 foots of snow (about 26 meters) falling this winter. The average temperature in March is about 37 °F, but it is only 9 °F since last night and the wind chill factor is 15 °F below freezing. It’s so cold keeping people stay away from streets. The heat system in my house runs rapidly but it is not enough warming for entire house. Therefore the fireplace is my second resource to keep the house warm. I love snow but there is so much this year. Not only me but for all that the winter is too long making people miserable. The town is already out of the budget for snow plowing a month ago and so do I. I am running out of cash for the heating. I know the spring is coming soon but I can not wait for it.

Something to write.

Vince

Just want to correct the error that I wrote.

There is 88 inches of snow falling so far, not 88 foot. I would be death by now if 88 foot of snow has been falling.

Hi Lilian,
Nice to meet you! I born and grewup in Vietnam. Currently I live in a small town of Massachusett state. It is up north of America. Where are you from Lilian?

You're lucky that you're not living in New England states. The weather here changes rapidly. We always have long winter and short summer. However in hurricane season we don’t have as many as you do. It is beautiful down there in NC. I passed by there one time when I took a long trip driving down to Florida. How long have you been down there?

Sorry I was busy in the last two days. Yeah! In the history there are more hurricanes hitting your area from Atlantic Ocean more than the New England area. I would say Boston is a student city. There are many good colleges such as Harvard, MIT, BU, BC and so on. However it is one of the most expensive cities in the country. In general it is an interesting and diverse city. You may want skimmimg through this website http://www.boston-online.com/relocation.html. It has a lot of information about Boston.
Today is sunny and the temperature is about 40F. It’s not bad. I’ll take it.

Hey, welcome to the club!

I do like snow. It looks beautiful on the pine trees and on the lawn. However when you get too much snow, you will be tired to get rid of it. It causes a lot of problem for traffic too. I love weather in Vietnam. I miss it very much.

Hi Vince90, what is the weather like in your city? If it is still cold and snowy, I want to send you a little heat and sunlight from Vietnam, your father land. How about your life in America?

It’s spring here and the weather today is sunny and warmer than usual. It’s about 80F. Thanks for your regard. I miss Vietnam very much and I hope I will visit my hometown soon. I have a busy life here. I spent most of the day at work and little time with my family when I get home. Only weekend is our quality time and we can do most of stuffs during the weekend. Thanks for asking.
