Enough is too much!


Current conditions outside are pretty bleak. We had a break in the snow last night, filled with freezing drizzle and sleet, so only about four inches of fresh snow fell in the first half of the storm. Now it's snowing gang-busters outside,with 10-20 more inches expected today. Ridiculous. I really feel for the road crews, who are busting their asses and being maligned for doing the best they can. I mean, we are not Buffalo or Ann Arbor or Boston. This shit doesn't happen down here more than every few years. For it to happen three times in a season is a sign of the End Times.

Yeh, this is fairly ludicrous isn't it?

My family in Iowa are laughing at this situation. This is nothing...

Yeah, but people can handle it out there. Here they don't have the plows or the resources for it. (And Iowa doesn't have anywhere near the number of miles of city and suburban roads!)

I stayed in Ann Arbor one January and it snowed four to six inches every day that month. School never closed, the roads always had snow on them, and people didn't care. We might have to get used to it here!
