    I have a ski trip to western Canada that I booked and paid for over a year ago [October 2008] that is delayed a day because the maintenance workers at BWI cannot figure out which end of a shovel to use. What a bunch of wimps!

    It is just snow get over it!

    We had a similar storm last December and I had no problem driving in it. You know in Canada they just drive on it.

    My neighbors in Maryland are wringing there hands with tears the size of horse turds in their eyes crying out "Its gonna snow! We will all be killed!"

    Steve, the problem here is the anticipation of problems. People get totally whipped into a frenzy a day or two in advance, as if missing a meal or two might really be detrimental

    Enjoy the snow!
    We have had a pretty good year for the stuff here in Minnesota, Christmas time was exceptionally beautiful with a fresh 10 + inches. It is snowing right now here in Minneapolis and the way it is laying on the trees is gorgeous.

    The snow is great. The people around here in Metro DC, not so.

    Haha. I have a friend in Bethesda who calls the DC traffic "magma." This is the most apt description I have yet heard of it. Woe unto anyone getting sucked into the magma today and tomorrow. Even on a good day, the traffic is an national embarrassment well befitting the gridlock of our federal government.

    And some out there reading my post thought I was exaggerating.

    I spent last weekend's snowstorm in the darkroom. I hope to expose film for this storm. Of course, if I can't get out of the Atlanta airport and back to Richmond, I may have to just read APUG and LF Forum from the airport....

    Have Fun!

    Down here in North Alabama, we close schools and stock up on canned food as soon as it starts snowing. Usually it's just random flurries and a few icy patches on the roads, but we did get a good snow back in early January.

    I think getting southerners off the roads when the roads are icy is good because most of us cant drive worth shit in good weather (myself included)

    Ok, I might have been a little sarcastic in this post, but it's true enough to make a good generalization (perhaps stereotype is a better word?) about the locals


    edit: I think I've reached my smiley face quota for today.

    PS -- time to join in with the new decade, dude!


    First time I missed the year. OOPS!
    You didn't miss a thing. The next decade starts with the end of this year, unless the first year was year '0' and not year '1'.
