ohhhhhhhh.. you're talking about snow.

based on that picture, i'd plow it, too. 2am or otherwise.

this is about snow?? OH WOW... :) well that means my mind is dirty

aye, fly not flies (or flys). Its "my family" - they fly, not 3rd person - he/she/it flies.

"Having my boyfriend plowing it" is also wrong - should be having followed by the infinitive - "having my boyfriend plow it". Also the reference to 10 inches in the morning and comparing it with 2am is counter-intuitive, 2am is not the morning except in the strictest sense.

*sigh* I hate correcting people when there really is no need to do it....facebook is to language what cow farts are to agriculture

I'd say that if you didn't get the dirty reference your mind is stupid.
It took me like a minute to get the snow idea.

Although "my family" refers to a group, it is itself singular. What is being said is "it flies." Think, if a word can be made plural (families), it is most likely singular or dual, and we can eliminate dual because it isn't really used in English anymore.

So, flies is right.

/pointless correction

Yeah, actually, both flies and fly are correct, but it depends on whether "my family" is meant to represent a single unit or the segmented and separated members. Eg. "My family flies in from Denver." vs. "My family fly in from all across the world." Here, I would say "flies" because they're all coming, as a single unit, from Texas. I find your pedantry amusing.

"...hope my family fly in tomorrow..."???
No, it's "flies" in this situation because they're making the word "family" into a single unit.

it would be flies. family is a singular third-person unit. family flies. family members fly.

All you retards who keep trying to correct her on "fly" and "flies" and whatnot, you clearly don't get the picture. read it again, don't worry about the grammar. 10inches, boyfriend plowing, thats what this post is about idiots. sounds like yall need to get out of nerd school and welcome yourselves to society. dumbasses

^^ this anonymous is correct. In this case flies is more correct than fly.

Referring to 2 a.m. as morning implies that the person speaking has gone to sleep and woken up on the next calendar day. Saying something like 2 at night is simply incorrect since 2 at night is technically 2 a.m. ante meridiem, meaning before noon. Though 2 at night implies that the speaker has not yet gone to sleep for the night. Perhaps you should suck up that "*sigh*" and learn to understand connotative meaning as well as the technical meaning.
