    Snow, It figures

    Our weather guessers just said that the snow the west had & the one the south had are going to converge into one big storm around CT & New England is getting a Nor'Easter.

    Our weather guesser is jumping up and down with glee. He is calling for 10-14". They are dusting off their yard sticks so they can stand in traffic and measure every 1/2" we get.

    Try living in the south. We don't have snow plows, blowers, tire chains, snow tires or even snow shovels. 2 inches of snow and we are shut down.

    We just got 6" (biggest snow in 20 years) and looks like we will shut down most all week. We are just not prepared for this.

    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Wat jeff said.
    We got a little more, not a big deal.
    But, central Arkansas, where Little Rock is has been virtually shut down by several icy inches of the white stuff. The Interstates are too slick to drive and there are miles and miles of cars and trucks sitting still. Meaning the few snow plows the cities and State own can't run. Only thing to do is wait for warming weather to melt.

    its becoming a huge problem, the snow.

    Equipment gets old, breaks down, and the overtime bills skyrocket.
    Its stretching the budgets of all the local municipalities, and if the snow keeps coming down, some of us might find ourselves buried in the white stuff alot longer than we expect.
