    I would normally trade Minnesota weather for DC weather....But certainly not today.Hospitals will be crammed pack with hernia patients by the time it's done.

    No one owns or can borrow a snow blower?

    Shovels work just as well as snow blowers. I own a snow blower, and I never even use the thing. I forget why I even bought it. My shovel gets a lot of work though.

    Dan I didn't know you where from Michigan. I was born and raised there and moved to Texas in 85.

    Well, true...

    Hell, we don't own a snowblower, either...But there is this great skid-steer loader we use...We plowed part of the back road we live on with it this morning...

    Must be global warming. By the way they are trucking in snow to Vancouver for the Olympics it is warmer than normal they claim it is El Nino.


    The weather is fine in Florida. Sounds like you guys in the northeast have perfect weather to watch the super bowl and drink beer.

    Who'd want to leave? Food, water, heat... two people snowed in for days? Sounds like a blissful to me!
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.
