  1. Nothing to worry about! The weather changed from motzei Shabbos literally 5-10 times. Early motzei Shabbos,it was supposed to be 57 with rain. Then it went down to colder but without rain….so they don’t know what they’re talking about. Bezras hashem,it will be just fine!

  2. Snow on purim was awesome 2 years ago, no running around just sitting home with the family and chilling, at first i thought it would be bad now i wish for snow on purim

  3. Last time I checked Purim is in the winter months.. spring is the 21st, so Purim happens to fall out in the winter. it is what it is

  4. It’s only Monday and a lot could change by Sunday. Also the weather that I see says only 1-3 inches. Where are you getting 10 inches and more from?

  5. Some computer models are showing 12-18 inches while others are showing an inch or two. The potential is there but anything can happen in 7 days. One thing that seems to be in agreement is tatit will be quite cold. In fact,if it does not snow it will likely be because the storm went to for self because the Airmass is even colder then what is now predicted

  6. Snow is NOT what you daven for!!! There is so much tzaaros going on right in our own town that’s what you daven for. The cholim, the almanos, the yesomim NOT TO BE INCONVENIENCED BY SNOW!!!!!

  7. If it wasn’t bad for the poor and aniyim collecting on purim (aiynehem shel aniyim nesuim lemikra megilah) I would have rathered to daven for snow and rain fall on purim for bracha, AND so there should be less hangouts, sechok vekalus roish on this holy day!

  8. @LkwdGirl – you’re 1000% wrong. The beauty of tefilla is that anyopne can daven for anything. You can daven for whatever you like. You can daven for the poor & almonos in town, that guy can daven for nice weather. when he gets older, he can daven for the poor and downtrodden. When you get younger, you can daven fopr nice weather. A few yrs ago my son davened the Broncos should win the Super Bowl even tho they were underdogs. And, surprise !! they won. Ah Freilechen Purim to all.

  9. @command post, I completely agree to lkwdgirl. Yes we can pray for anything, but we need to have our priorities straight. Sorry, but you can bring any proof from the Broncos.
