A little over a decade in Georgia, and I can still recognize the sound of a snowplow when I hear one pass by... looks like Seattle just got it's first bit of snow since we got here, though I doubt it will last the day.

Looks like it, mostly. I, fortunately, don't have to try to - I can just watch out the window. *grin*

One of my favorite parodies of the hard-charging proclamation "It's a fine, fine, day to be a Soldier!"--usually delivered in the midst of cold, wet misery, to help mutually kid each other along--ends with the words " a nice, warm, headquarters!"

Remember the billboard for the Atlanta Thrashers hockey team? "Come see the only people n Atlanta who know how to drive on ice."

Also keep in mind that it's pretty flat RIGHT out our window, but there are lots of rather imposing hills nearby.

Actually, from all reports and observations, Seattlites freak out about snow in roughly the same proportion as folks in Atlanta. It doesn't apparently snow that much/often in the city, though obviously you get a fair bit up in the mountains nearby.

I feel obscurely better about Atlanta drivers now.

Do you also remember how pterodactyl mosquitoes sound when they're hungry and buzzing around your ear? And the sound of a snow blower that you can't get to start? And the melody of "On All Sides Snow"? Ah, how the past lives on in the gray matter of all of us.

oh hell yes

I certainly do remember the pterod - I mean, mosquitoes. I forgot entirely about On All Sides Snow, however. *grin* You remember my songs better than I do. :)
