Default RATS!!! Another freak blizzard here today....

I've lived in this neck of the woods for 27 years now, and there's been years where we've gone over 5 years without seeing a flake of snow, let alone blizzards....

Today, our city woke up to the 2nd blizzard of the year. It's absolutely treacherous out there today, needless to say the beloved Corvette is safe and sound in the garage (a whole 'nother story of frustration for you friend TopSpeed) but the entire city is in shambles here. We have almost NO snow removal equipment due to the fact we hardly ever get any... the one plow that was working this morning got stuck.

Anyways, it's really annoying. Really. Annoying.

If I disappear again for a few days, that means I'm snowed in. Hopefully things will get a little better as the day progresses and it won't come to that.....

Dude, if there was ANY way those turkies down at Fed-Ex would take the stuff, I'd send it... postage paid.

We have been pretty luck here in Maryland, not only have we not had the slightest bit of snow. We haven't even had an extremely cold day (not to rub it in or anything)

I can appreciate how annoying it is, believe me. I hate lizzards. That is why I moved to the Carolina's 15 years ago. I really dislike snow, in any form.

We get, on average, one small snow a year here in central Carolina -- usually about 2 inches but one time 11. Regardless, it shuts down the city until it melts (usually about a day), and it provides just enough reminder tome again of why I moved here.

Thanks, Pay; you've managed to warm my heart this morning with your kind pointing and laughing at us.

You have just described NORMAL weather for us up here, to a 'T'. I, too, loathe snow. In the 27 years I've been here, it's never done anything remotely CLOSE to this before. We don't really have snow removal equipment here on purpose; it would typically be an utter waste of taxpayers money, but the last 2 years it's starting to look like we really oughta get some.

Victoria, here where I live, is in a strange little spot for Canada. Yes, indeed, the entire rest of Canada is quite used to large snowfalls and all that, for sure, but we are at the very Western edge of the country and are typically exposed to the weather patterns that come from Hawaii, thus typically resulting in 10+*C days, even in January. This year, giant artic weather patterns are making their way further south, and we are getting the outside edges of these storms, thus the mayhem.

I talked recently to an old fella who lives here; he was born and raised here in Victoria. In over 80 years, he's never seen anything like this..... it's really ticking a lot of us off.

Booooo Freakin hoooooooo..... I live in Colorado, that means I havent got to drive my vette in almost a month.It is snow storm after snow storm. We got 2 storms in 2 weeks that were 37 inches and 22 inches.We just got another one that was 7 inches and just last night we got about 1/2 an inch.I have never seen anything like this since I've lived here. (thats about 17 years) My trusty rear wheel drive 240sx has been getting me around pretty good though.

I would give anything to have that much snow. I live in upstate South Carolina and I would love to have that much snow. You can't imagine how much I love playing in the snow with the 4WD.

I suppose it would be rubbing it it to mention that there is blue sky, 64 degrees F and very dry streets down here right now, but I will. I just got back from taking hte 'vette out for its weekly Sunday morning exercise hour.

Winters didn't used to be this warm and fine here -- maybe there is something to this global warming thing. If so, I seem to be among the lucky ones who benefit.
