    Hey man, what's not fair is that I'm stuck in NC and never get any snow! Last year we had a 20" snow and the entire state shut down. We had a ball then! I drove 30 miles in the snow without any problems. The only problems I had was that other people were almost sliding into me! I will never have a chance like that again.

    Drivin in the snow is fun, we get plenty of it here. The only problem is that when the snow flys they start putting TONS of salt on the roads and that will make anything rust.

    You know that little white stuff that falls form the sky,[​IMG][​IMG]. I cant wait for some big snow storms. Its an easy way to make some cash around here. 2 years ago i made almost 300 dollars pulling people out of ditches in one storm.(people dont like to slow down when it gets slippery) I was only charging the aroung 15 to 25 dollars to do this. The tow trucks around here charge 60 to 80 dollars to yank ya out. Plus when i bought my blazer i also bought a plow which add up to more $$$$$$.

    We had a drought and now flash flood watches all over the place which turned to some serious mud. Will trade you some of this mud for snow. Maybe not, these Okies cant drive in clear weather much less rain, a little snow and they become flat dumb. But then again, I think it's the amusement value to watch them try to drive like a bat out of hell when it snows and the look on their face when their vehicle goes a totally different way than they want it to. There's a lot of them that have Street Utility Vehicles that never see off road until it snows and they way lay into the brakes or try to jerk the steering wheel to do a "kneejerk" lane change and it heads for the ditch. I think it's those days that I have more fun than a bus load of kids on the way to Chuch E' Cheeses.

    ICK!!!!!! SNOW........EEEEWWWWWW.........[​IMG] I'm recovering from snowaphobia. 19 years of Michigan winters make me glad to have the Southern California winters. I'll take 60 degrees and LOTS of rain over -20 degrees and 3' of snow any day. [​IMG]

    GIMME SOME SNOW! I've hated this lousy hot weather out here in Colorado this year, hopefully it's over now. Can't wait for more of the white stuff, the deeper the better!

    Call my rig an SUV... And I'll tear your lungs out.

    Hmmmmmmmmm..........I CAN'T BELIEVE you guys are wishing for snow. This year we've already had two dumps totalling around a foot, although both times it's melted within a couple of days. Right now we have around 3 inches. Unfortunately, up here snow=COLD!!!!! Tonight it's going down to -15C(5 farenheit) and a few weeks from now I can look forward to -30C(-22 farenheit). Our record snowfall in Canmore was 40 inches in 30 hours!!!! I don't think I took the Blazer out of four-wheel drive for a week........
