In Kansas a hot tub is a bathtub, like on those boner medicine commercials, heated by a propane tank normally used to make moonshine.

SNOW OR GET OFF THE POT

Tired of these squalls during rush hour that don't amount to anything. If you're gonna snow, snow.

I know for real. Sick of a dusting every day. All it does is slow people down for no reason.

No. It was above freezing and everything was just wet. It is very overcast, and I'm not sure if the temps are supposed to drop or not, but if they don't, the there will be no ice storms today, just rain.
