    It's snowing on my computer

    My niece said she heard that if you did a Google search for let it snow that it would snow on your screen. I have Google as my home page and tried it and sure enough it snowed, snowed so hard that a blue button appeared as the screen frosted up for me to Defrost. Try it my, niece couldn't get it to work for her.

    Better be careful... my step son is a long hauler... he made the same wish... talked to him yesterday morning and he was in a truck stop in western New Mexico, shut down because of the snow... talked to him an hour or so ago, he's back on the road, but the weather guessers are all saying I40, I17, I25 are all shut down... he's headed east on I40 bound for St Louis.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Chuck you tell him to be careful out there, I was dead heading from Dallas to a coupla winters ago and a storm hit the pan handle and we had high winds and black ice all over the place, not fun when you rig wants to go one way and the tractor wants it's called a jacknife, to go one way and the trailer wants to go another. I finally pulled over in and spent the night where I was, thats about the time I decided that I really didn't want to be a OTR driver.

    Agreed. Growing up in Barstow (no comments from the peanut gallery) and driving down to San Berdoo during high winds (Cajon summit) was always a bad thing. Seeing a lot of trailers and wide loads smashed on the side of the highway was never fun. When they say wind warning...BELIEVE IT.
