Default Id rather have snow than be a red neck.

**** all of you in your warmer souther climates. I spent that last hour shoveling my damn driveway. My father didnt even need his **** shovel, he drives an RX330. But because of the frost it will become rock solid by tonight if I dont get rid of it.

It's about damn time we got some snow here on Long Island. We had 2 days of it really early in the winter, so I put snow tires on all three of the family daily drivers, and have been burning them up for the last 8 or 10 weeks with nary a flake on the ground.

Although I did make a trip to Rochester 2 weeks ago and drove through 5 hours of snow on the way back, and the Blizzaks didn't miss a beat. Anyone see that 36 car pileup in Rochester 2 Sundays ago? I was 2 hours ahead of that.

Should I infer there's a request in that statement? You KNOW I have snow tires, and I'm working from home. I could do a quick if needed.

We just went out for breakfast, and the Denny's had the air conditioning set just a few degrees too cool for my taste.

Today's supposed to be the first day in about a month that it won't get below zero. We currently have about 2 feet of snow on the ground, up to 4 feet where it's drifted.

Traffic in the entire area was fucked up for hours after that. All because some dipshit decides to stop in the center lane instead of pulling off to the shoulder.

I tell you what, those whiteouts were no joke. I had to do my best Cole Trickle, and just drive through them blind.
