No sidewalk salt anywhere in pittsburgh too. Some dude at giant eagle bought at least 20 boxes of iodized salt in front of me earlier this morning.

I was talking to a buddy of mine,one year older than me, about how few people under 50 knew the delights of growing up in a house with a coal furnace. One way of avoiding friction over how late you came home was making sure you went to the cellar and threw a shovel of coal in the furnace. Dad's always liked not having to go do that in the middle of the night.

Snow blower purchase a couple years ago was one of the best decisions.

That ice storm that blew through the South on Wednesday:
There's still 50,000 people in my parents' county in SC without power.

The hot water would run out pretty quickly for a family of four.

Yoi.
