Boy, Toon (or whoever) opened a can of worms with his thread on Jerry Garcia on WOW.

I'm in for the rest of the day since nothing is plowed or salted yet. It was insane out there and I only went a few miles. They act like they've never driven in snow before.

That reminds me. Yesterday I finally got a free offer for two meals from Carrabba's. Last three times it was a special meal and/or wine tasting that I had to pay for in order to attend.

"Experience the many ways to enjoy Carrabba's and share them with a guest during a special restaurant tour. Enjoy a complimentary Blackberry sangria at MR. C's before visiting the Pasta Bar for a cooking demonstration, taste Parmesan Crusted Chicken while learning about our private dining menu, and mingle with other Amicis over a delicious lunch. Then, we will say ciao with a Carside Carry-Out bag for every Amici with lunch for the next day and 20% off your next online order."



Congratulations, that sounds great. I wish they'd send me that one. I got a buy one get one free coupon from them for my birthday, which wasn't bad.

That's what's bad about snow driving. You have the drivers that are scared to death and go 25 miles under the speed limit. You have smart drivers who lower their speed somewhat because of the conditions. And you have your asses who are sure they know how to drive better than anyone else in the snow and insist on driving the speed limit or above.

I'm wondering if it may be a new location that opened since I have one that I go to that's much closer. The one I normally go to is where the other offers were listed as the location.

I am pleased to say that I got quite a bit written today in my instructions to do data validation in Excel for a class the administrative assistants want me to teach next month.

I was getting a bit worried because Mon & Tue weren't good in that department. Too many phone calls and other interruptions.

Storm #1 is shoveled.

The lawn service guy came. Did 3 neighbors and left.
So the concept of paying someone to shovel doesn't work in real life.
I use to get them to do my apron and a parking spot on the street for free.
Now I offer to pay and it didn't get done.


Storm #2 starts later tonight.

Joy.

That is why people go to work on the weekends.



All mail is at the post office.

Why does the plough keep coming down the block and clearing the other side to the curb. Our side is 4 or 5 feet from the curb.
Son better not come home.
No place for his car.

We're supposed to get thundersnow tonight. Should be a lot of fun.

Most of our stuff has turned to rain, so now we got snow that weighs 50 lbs per inch. That was fun to get rid of. But now the cold front is coming through again so it'll all freeze and then we get 6-12 inches on top of that. Yay.

It worked for the neighbors who arranged to have it done before it needed doing! The lawn service guys prolly left because other people who thought ahead have priority.

Yeah, I'm trying to avoid that. I don't work as well on weekends anymore unless it's just absolutely critical work. I have a few weeks on this but I want to get it done early so I have time to read to see what Jatravartid stuff I did.

Oh, and it's 58 and mostly sunny outside.

It's all faux spring here. Last year it fooled the bulbs in the front flowerbed....

I miss the snow.

I think our snow is gone. It is still above freezing. I ate a lot of vegetable soup. I'm stuffed.

edit: I think I am up to date on fixing hubby's complaints about his blackberry. Latest was forwarding his hotmail to a vzw.blackberry.net address so it would push in a timely fashion. It was taking hours for his hotmail to show up on the bb. Part of the problem was that he kept messenger on all the time on his desktop.

Time for a visit to the east coast!

If I never saw snow again in my life I wouldn't feel cheated at all.We had our 2 weeks of winter and I'm ready for spring.
I don't even want to see a snow globe.

Hi everyone. The snow stories make me shudder. Not only the work of clearing the stuff, but driving in it gives me a lot of stress and sort of panic attacks. I try to get a ride when I can. I used to shovel out the end of the driveway and push the snow to the right, because then the plow would end up moving it elsewhere. Devious.

Except when the plow come down the street on the WRONG SIDE, which it has been doing.

I just guaranteed that there will be another 8 to 12 inches of snow.
I cleared the apron . Again. 3rd time today.


The arctic is having their warmest winter ever.

As far as I know, it is a yearly contract.
I told them snow removal. But I knew by the time they get here, we are usually done.

We were under a tornado watch for four hours last night - high winds and lots of rain. I will take that any day (unless of course the tornado touches down on my house) over snow and ice. New England is having an awful time too. Ironic that it is warm where it is supposed to be so cold. Maybe we should all migrate to the Arctic Circle!!

We always had problems having the driveway plowed because the guys/gals(politically correct) do the big bucks parking lots first.

We have a problem getting plowed because the landlords a cheap #$@$#$@%@@@@@^%@^!!!!!! and instead of paying someone with the equipment, the maintenance guy goes around on a fourwheeler for the sidewalk and then a frontloader to do the drives, and they don't start until at least 9 am so everyone has already driven on it once.

true.... but they actually got snow! That's way more winter than they should get. We haven't even gone sledding yet!

Granted part of that is because both times there have been good storms we've been out of town.
