    It looks like Hoth here...

    .....but at least it's not as bad as New York! We got quite a bit of snow yesterday here in Illinois. I had to shovel the sidewalk several times yesterday. And at Wal-Mart we had a team of 10+ employees out pushing carts through the early snow which was already fairly deep.

    You guys pretty much took it on the chin with this storm, frett. I couldn't believe how many flights were canceled at O'Hare and Midway before the storm even go there! Craziness, I tells ya! Craziness!

    Speaking with mabs on AIM this morning, he was telling me about the TWO FEET of snow they got last night. I was intrigued enough that I found his local radio channel online and was listening to the mayhem all morning at work. Craziness, I tells ya! Craziness!
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    Yea, you're lucky you don't have to go to a station and work there all day....after driving through 2 feet of snow!
    You'll be sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!

    I would rather drive through 2 feet of snow than an inch of ice.

    We got about 14" of snow on the west side of Cleveland. We usually don't get that much. The problem is more the massive drifting!! We had a 20-foot long drift across the entire width of our pad and it started at 3 feet deep and the part that hit the garage door was 5 1/2 feet deep! It took me two hours to get through that. The snowblower decided it had enough and stopped working and it wasn't doing that great of a job anyhow since the snow was so deep. Well, once I got that sorted, I called into work to let them know I may or may not be in. Well, my neighbour, who is a CWRU professor, saw me tackling the apron of our drive. The city buried each one in 3 1/2 feet of packed snow. The snow was packed 3 feet on the road, the apron and past the sidewalk! Terrible!!! So, between Jim and me-- and eventually Lou, we managed to get that cleared in about 45 minutes.

    Lou got a call from his supervisor telling him to call all of his employees to let them know work was called-off. CWRU works at was closed today, so Jim's not going in. Most of the city is closed today and I have to work. Nice. The one manager who DID manage to show up is mad because most of my department didn't show up today. I'm glad I ended up coming in. It looks good on my record. LOL

    Well, I managed to get to work in 20 minutes once I got on the highway. I had to blast my horn at some bint in her SUV. She'd been driving for two miles neck-and-neck with a van and they were blocking the highway. Idiots. Eventually, she moved ahead of the van and rolled her window down. She yelled something at me, so I rolled down mine. She yelled, "What the hell is your problem?" I retorted, "What the hell is YOUR problem? If you are driving the same speed as the vehicle next to you, get in front or behind him! Don't block the only other open lane! Besides... you're in an SUV and I'm in a little Mazda. Why can't you manage to drive better or faster?" She shouted a "**** you" at me and I told her that was a lame non-answer to my question and then moved on. LOL

    Greetings from a snowed over Toledo, OH! We got about 8-15'' here. It's pretty horrific driving conditions. I'm a grad student at UT and they closed yesterday and today! woo woo! hehehee Sadly, with a level three, you can't go out (legally) and i wanted to rent a movie or three.

    Maybe i'll walk? Psh!

    and seriously, JP, take deep breaths, and don't lash out in anger.

    Seriously... the roads are bad enough without someone making poor decisions behind the wheel and making things worse for people who aren't having as many issues driving.
