What's more current than the weather?
It's what we live with, work around and can't reason with, divorce or murder. :biggrin:

So, how many inches did you Cellarites get out of the past day or so?

Ladies, you may wish to consider the topic carefully before responding.

This is snow.

I'll take a closer look in the morning but maybe 16 inches in the last 30 hours? We got like 4 more while I was at school. I'd like to take a moment to thank the Japanese for my Nissan pickup. I had to take a long stretch of back roads because there were firemen all over the highway, but had no problems.

Reports vary, but the northern burbs seem to have gotten between three and six inches.

I did not get my ruler out to check. I'd guess I had to clean three or four inches off my car when I left work at midnight. It took me 45 minutes to complete what is usually a 15 minute drive.

For the most of it, thankfully, I was the only car on the road. When I was about two miles from my house some dumbass decided to tailgate me. What is with people??

At any point he could have passed me if he were that impatient. It was just me and him, and he was not a cop. It wasn't just his strict adherence to the rules of the road, either ... at the point at which he finally got the hell off my ass, he made an illegal left hand turn at a red light, at an intersection known for fatalities (it's a five-point intersection, with no visibility of the cross traffic).

We got a whole inch here a few days ago....and it didn't melt for hours.

uh oddly enough this winter here in Kansas jas been very very very kind only 2 ice storms and not too much god-awful cold.. the lowest it got this year was -10 which is freakin' balmy for here in january :) although I don't miss the south.. I need my seasons.. it gives a sense to the passage of time, and sometimes a challenge (given that I walk to work only about 10 blocks.. but that can be a challenge sometimes.. especially during that ice storm.. now that was fun!) real quick though when my brother and I were young and living in champaign Ill. one day (and I was in 3rd grade he was in 1st) we had a huge snow storm and it was no big deal, only about 6 inches so we walked to school.. as we did every day (it was only about a mile) well... we got there and much to our suprise the school was closed.. fortunately the janitor let us and and we called home.. damn beatnik parents :) I dunno, I had a blast walking in that much snow! moonboots rock!

cowhead 03-02-2005 04:45 AM

oh and the screwed up thing about walking.. I own 2 cars actually SUVs (by the way anyone interested in a '93 pathfinder XE?).. and haven't driven (although I LOVE to drive) since last March
