WHY LIVING IN CALIFORNIA SUCKS

1. No snow days
2. Berkeley
3. No snow days
4. Nancy Pelosi
5. No snow days

The snow days have it.

Michigan sucks in general.

BERKLEY ( The way the good people spell it ) is a huge school district, where kids who live up to 4 miles from the school itself attend Berkley High School, and thanks to some loophole, we are considered a "walking" district, this means no busses, and kids are supposed to either walk, or drive to school. BHS has next to no parking, so that's a huge problem, and although I don't have a car, I would have to walk about 2.2 miles to the school...which I will never do.

And plus, only in Michigan, can you get frostbite and sunburn in the same week.

Alright, I envy the snow, especially since I grew up in Minnesota but how dare you diss on California! We have access to snow if we want it but its far better not having to live in it for months (trust me, not fun shoveling snow and driving in it).

Although I personally like UCLA better, can't bag on Berkeley either since they're our sister (or mother, depends on who you're talking to) school...heck, it is the #1 public school of the nation. And I personally like Nancy Pelosi! So appreciate the goodness of your state and the lovely sunny days everyone else envies, it far outweighs a snow day!!

The snaw has got it all. I mean c'mon, in CA do you have to get up 5 minutes early to scrape your car? How about carry a shovel in your car just in case of bad/no plowing jobs. I especially like getting stuck in snow after a hard day off work,it's a good time argh or the worst getting up 1/2 an hour early to shovel cause your parents don't believe in using one of our two snowblowers~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

In the winter i can do anything from skiing(crosscountry and downhill) sledding, ice skating, snow shoeing, tromping around in the woods, ice fishing, snow fort building,snow fights, and the best snow man building! Try and do those in CA (and video tape it!

The only things on that list I haven't done in CA are ice fishing and snow shoeing. In general the ice around here doesn't get thick enough to walk on. I could have gone snow shoeing, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

But it is a 2-3 hour drive to get to where you do those things, at least from my house. For most of my relatives Back East a 2-3 hour drive means you're in another state!

I'm getting out of school in 43 minutes and can't wait. I wish the snow came this morning though instead of letting us go home early.

Getting out of school in 20 minutes
Sweet Sweet snow!!

This Day has been the best one ever!

I thought I had to do a 5 hour math assignment tonight, but the teacher moved it to be due next week

I thought with the math assignment I also had a choir concert tonight, moved to monday due to snow

I would have had to finish my physics homework right now, but I will not have 7,8, and 9th period, 8th and 9th being AP Phys, so no AP Physics (PHYSICS IS PHUN, P=MV IS THE BEST)

And then I get to these computers and NATS WERE ANNOUNCED!!

There is also pretty snow outside, YEAH!!!!

As of right now in the Berkley/Oak Park/Huntington Woods ( 35 minutes out of detroit for the non-michigan people ) area....we have about 5 inches of snow on the ground from a Monday storm, barley any streets in the area have been plowed yet...which makes for hours and hours of skidding, slippery fun!

Residential areas, you mean. The major roads have been ok since Tuesday evening / Wednesday morning. (at least in Rochester, Troy, Sterling Heights, Southfield, and anywhere else I've been during travel between those.
