Do you like winter?  What's your favorite/least favorite thing about winter?  What was your favorite snow day acitivity growing up?  Are you praying for a snow day tomorrow?

Also, do you believe the myth about ground hog day (since it's tomorrow)?

    Do you like winter? Yes, but not the 18-inches-of-snow-cold-icy-three-hour-commute-home winter. What's your favorite/least favorite thing about winter? Fav: That I can live in my Uggs. When it's snowing, the view from my office is pretty. Least fav: see above. What was your favorite snow day acitivity growing up? Watching the school closing announcements like a hawk (I still watch them lol). We lived close to a good sledding hill, too. Are you praying for a snow day tomorrow? I can work from home just as easy as being in the office... Also, do you believe the myth about ground hog day (since it's tomorrow)? No, but I always guess at what it will be.

    Do you like winter?  I LOVE snow.  If there is snow on the ground, I'm happy.

    What's your favorite/least favorite thing about winter?  I hate when it's cold, grey and raining.  I'd rather we have 12 inches of snow than for it to be grey and depressing.

    What was your favorite snow day acitivity growing up?  I loved it when we'd be playing outside and we could smell that my father built a fire in the natural wood fireplace.  Going inside to have hot chocolate and the roast marshmellows as the best.  We skiied/snowboarded a lot growing up too....and that is always fun.

    Are you praying for a snow day tomorrow?  I got one TODAY!  I'm in Dallas for work, and my customer (a city municipality) shut down because of the ice/snow.
    I NEVER get snow days....so this ROCKS!

    Also, do you believe the myth about ground hog day (since it's tomorrow)?  The groundhog is cute....but I don't believe in the myth.  It's going to be cold until late May no matter what.

    Do you like winter? I like it in the beginning, in December and around Christmas time.  But it's far too long for my liking.
    What's your favorite/least favorite thing about winter? Favorite: I suppose the beauty of it.  Least favorite: Being cold & having to scrape snow off of my car.
    What was your favorite snow day acitivity growing up? Sleeping in, going sledding, and snowmobiling in our backyard (we had a mini snowmobile when I was growing up - now my family has a regular sized one but I've never used it).
    Are you praying for a snow day tomorrow? Yes!  That would be awesome.  It'd be like I pretty much wouldn't have any class at all this entire week if that happened.
    Also, do you believe the myth about ground hog day (since it's tomorrow) Definitely not.  It seems like if he sees his shadow, wouldn't spring be coming early because it's sunny?  I never understood why the shadow means more winter.

    Do you like winter? In December but otherwise no.
     What's your favorite/least favorite thing about winter?  I hate it being so cold and miserable feeling outside so much.
    What was your favorite snow day acitivity growing up?  Building forts in the snow and tying my sled to my dog (alaskan malamute) who would love to pull me around all day in the street.
    Are you praying for a snow day tomorrow? No use, I have to go in tomorrow to finish a project thanks to it being time sensitive and started a month ago.

    Nope.  Phil or whatever the ground hog's name is always "sees his shadow" because of all the cameras taking pictures of him.
