Snow Day

Anyone else in the same boat (see pics) Roads are really bad, and it just started freezing rain. Will try and go into work a little later if things get better (according to the weather it's only going to get worse)

Drive safe everyone

Look, lean, believe!!

Re: Snow Day

Woke up to 6" on the ground with a couple more expected before it stops. Just another light "dusting" as we say!

Re: Snow Day

We've been getting our @$$3$ handed to us for the last 24hrs. We have probably 8" of fresh snow since then. Been raining/sleeting all morning and it'll all turn to ice later today. I just got in to work, took 1hr 15min on back roads with virtually no traffic...usually it's only 30-45 min. on this route. We're also supposed to get another 2-5" of snow by tonight.

Now this is a winter storm As much as I hate snow/cold, if it's gonna storm, it might as well be like this. When it snows 3", then melts 2 days later and then does it over again, it just pisses ya off...

Re: Snow Day

Well, I'm not going into to work as it has been freezing rain for the last 2 hours and the roads are pretty much like ice rinks!!

Look, lean, believe!!
