    I feel for all you folks living in the south and not getting snow very often. And when it comes you seem to get hid pretty hard.
    All I can say is take it slow and be careful.

    Well they plowed the snow on the main road to town, but they left an inch of ICE on the road. The Community closed both Gates in and out of here because the cars and trucks are blocking the road. Half of the community has been without power for more than 13 hours now, and the power crews can't make it to the areas where the lines are down and poles taken out by lsiding cars. Figures there are people who have lived in this gated community for 10 and 20 years, who still don't own a generator. Yet the are the ones who complain the loudest about the winter power outages that happen every year here. If my power goes out, I will have lights, TV Satelite, Internet, Telephone ( there is absolutely no Cell Service here), I can build a fire in my wood stove, cook on the BBQ or the wood stove or the Turkey Fryer. M Generator will power the most important thing too, (THE COFFEE MAKER).:rolleyes:

    Our last snow was in March 1993. We had about an inch and the roads were shut down. I just hope we have another 24 years until the next one.

    Went out with my measuring stick, average depth of snow in my yard is 5". Average Depth of snow on top of both my vehicles 6 1/2" Length of time it took me to thaw out the locks on my truck then pry the door open was 20 minutes with an old hair dryer I keep in my tool box in the garage. If it warms up today I need to smear some door eze on the weather stripping on both vehicles, then get a couple cans of Spray Deicer.

    just another winter day in my book. An inch of snow and we still have teenagers cruising town after school.

    When I can't see the top of my snow blower, that's when I get worried

    Well, it's the right time of the year for it to happen. Just think if this was the middle of July.

    Just heard that 49 of the 50 states have had snow this year.
    I'm assuming Florida is left out of the fun. ?

    It probably was Florida, I know I read something like that last year, too.

    I had to go over to wally world about 2:00 and the thermometer in the car said it was 72 degrees!
