Haha.

I actually don't use a snowblower, I just thought that was a good place for that string of quotes to head.

I've never used a snowblower and would use a shovel, but I now park in a parking garage so I use neither. Although my car parks on the edge of the garage and all sides of my car are surrounded by a foot+ of snow except the side thats up against the wall...go figure.

Riding the motorcycle to work again tomorrow. Won't be as cold as today, so that's a plus. Might rain a little on Wednesday.

Most of the kids I saw yesterday were kneeling too.

I'm just enjoying my winters away. I'll be back there eventually. ;)

Right now I don’t even have a car, just the bike. My car is sidelined because my taillight is on backorder and can't pass inspection. It is nice to reliably fall back on a one seat sportbike for basic transportation in February, not gonna lie. My Dad gets about 5 months out of his bike in Washington County.

Nothing kills local news airtime quite like snow. At what point do people accept the fact that's what happens in the winter months?

Granted its been worse than the last few years, way worse, but there were points in the last three winters I was actually golfing Thanksgiving weekend, once in January and once in February. We haven't had an real winter in several years. Suck it up

You are right. I have a terrible dilemma tomorrow. Do I wear shorts after work? I really don't want to change after work but it will be 73 degrees tomorrow.

I live in Tulsa by the way. I have been golfing... :pop: :slug:

Another 3-4 inches of snow that is supposed to turn to rain and temps in the 40s later. Here comes the flood.

I left for work right as the snow squall hit this morning.

Thank goodness the bus driver knew how to drive in snow. We didn't slide or get stuck once.

I think some people got a little cocky in the snow last week... cars were driving pretty fast on my way into work this morning and I saw 3 cars that had wrecked off the side of the road.

Sure enough, 4-6" in Beaver Valley last night with some nice sleet in between to make it nice, crunchy and heavy.

Not. We got a good 6" of snow and the drive into work was not fun.

They didn't de-ice the sidewalks here even though it stopped raining at like 7:30 last night. Slipped right into a puddle and don't have time to go back to my apartment between classes.

I'm not happy.
