When I was in school, they used to put the chains on the busses and get us into school just so they could get the state funding and sell their food in the cafeteria, then let us go home, there had to be over 4-5" before they would cancel.. NOW, if they even forcast any snow without even a flake falling they close the shcools.. Probably afraid of lawsuites...

I can remember seeing 12 and 13 inches of snow in a single snowfall... and where I grew up.... not once... not once did they ever close the schools.... You just get used to slogging through the slush and snow... putting on chains... and seeing your car develop huge rust blisters after a couple of years of exposure to salted roads.

They do blow it out of proportion but I think we are gonna get closer to 12 inces not 2 inches.

When I was a kid, I also remember going to school when there was 4" or less. Now, these schools have my wife and I struggling to find a caregiver for our 7 year old when there is a *threat* of a dusting... It's just plain stupid....A few weeks ago, school was CANCELLED because it was...get this...too COLD. WTF!?!?! They are INSIDE aren't they??


Also, how many times have you seen a prefectly good Front Wheel Drive car having problems getting over a speed bump in a light snow event? Then, when you get closer and see why...WTF?? these idiots have tires worn so much that they probably hydroplane when it drizzles.
It's called MAINTENANCE and not very many people look at tread depth anymore....then everyone wonders why there are so many freaking accidents when there is a dusting on the road. They might as well rub oil on the worn tires to increase traction... Forget about the fact that a lot of people have no idea what they should do in a skid.....they should jump out of the car and never drive again.

Another rant....sorry..I tried to resist..

Forecast here is for 10"-17" ooo I can't wait!

Hey do not involve the Lynch Mob Boyz in this either. Daryl & Daryl are preparing for Daryl's wedding. Lets just say the BOYZ are back in town.
