    No, ericcg, had honestly never heard of that. Not till you mentioned it did I google it up. Sure explains a lot. Was just mentioning a couple days ago to a guy on here how I learn things on here. Seems like years ago in the newspapers was a column by some nationally-known fellow who would every so often have a column on "things I learned in route to looking up other things". Guy's name was Sidney something-or-other, I think.

    Well I guess the one thing to come from a day like this--at least you can get somewhere on getting that blasted sweetgum to split. Why god invented that miserable tree I'll never know.

    I know. I've no problem driving in the snow - and have even driven in an upper Michigan blizzard. The problem I have is how most people here drive in the snow. One time when it hadn't snowed in a while, and the roads were dry, a minivan was so afraid of the tiny bit of snow 40-feet away in the grassy median that the driver almost side-swiped the tractor-trailer on the other side of her. It was rush hour, so that would have been a spectacular accident.

    People don't drive well around here any time of year so it's hard to tell, but what I don't get is how every year and with almost every big-ish storm stores run out of snow shovels. We get snow every winter and I've kept the same shovel for years. What gives? Maybe people throw theirs out in frustration at the end of the season, that I could understand.

    btw I'm working in my nice and toasty darkroom today, jealous?

    Yeah I'm really losing it here. This winter has been totally relentless so far and the freezing is just too much. Maybe I'm too old, but -40? Seriously? I'm about ready to light myself on fire to keep warm.

    Michael R, as I look at a map of Canada, you're "way down south". There's a whole lot of Canada above you. Wonder if anybody lives up there. That has got to be some kind of cold way up there. I don't even want to imagine it. It's 31F here right now and I'm shoving wood in the stove as fast as I can haul it in the house, and I'm about to freeze. More power to ya, buddy.
