    I was a little skeptical of the claims of a winter storm coming, but now that I see it do I believe it /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Yes, yes I do /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I was skeptical too, so I actually went into work this morning. I realized that I was the only one dumb enough to go into the office so I left. Now, I'm at home and it is snowing like crazy!

    I ventured out to get donuts and it was snowing pretty hard, real messy on the side streets. Closed some of the hills even. Good times /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif The crappy Isuzu Trooper I hate to drive does really well in the snow though, too bad it doesn't snow more /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    What realy makes my day though is the morons in all their 4x4s in the ditchs.
    I mean come on, I am in a stang with a tight posi, no chains in the snow and ice and these brainiacs are blowing past me causing me to spin out and crap.
    I get around the corner and what a shock.. they are in a ditch. If I could brake I would stop and laugh at em.
    I suppose they feel that the laws of phsics change if you are in 4 wheel drive.

    Yeah... I have never been in so much snow in my life. It's like 2-3' of powder on top of ice depending on where you step. My Blazers are both "in progress" and the other two pickups don't have enough ground clearance to make it out of our driveway or down our road. Four 4x4s and I am somehow stuck... Sad, eh?
