Side benefit of all the late snow, the ability to snowshoe with the kids.  Got andrew out for a little walk in the woods this afternoon.  

We lost power for about 12 hours which is nothing, all things considered, and we've got the generator/transfer-switch so it was really only out for 4 hours because I didn't feel like setting it all up

It's been snowing for the last three days with high winds. There's over a foot of it on the ground, and the kids's school has been closed for the last two days. Going down to -30'C this weekend.

So I'm flying from Chicago to CT on Saturday like right before there's some blizzard supposed to happen. Ought to be interesting.

I love snow and wish it would happen more- of course, not driving in it is nice- but I hate all the slush crap it turns into afterward. It sucks to jump like two feet to avoid submerging your foot in some huge puddle.

Are you speaking of Blizzard in Chicago? I see nothing of 'blizard' proportions for here, just a half inch of rain/sleet.

Weird, my work 'websense' thingy blocks this thread due to the swearing in the title. The only way I could get into it was by going into the previous thread and using the 'Next' button... and I still can't see the first page. Who knows what wonders it holds. :rant:

billy, u are a really strange dood.

It's the only time of the year where its truly quiet outside. no crickets chirping, no birds chirping, well at least at night. the trees remind me of some old abandon warehouse, no leaves, no life, but just a dead skeleton of a frame all rusting and falling apart. look on the ground and you see no grass, no leaves, no colors from flowers or weeds, but just white..flat white all around. it's calm like death, its peaceful like death cause it's snow..and winter.

reminds me of a Depeche Mode song but without the song. then you think in a few hours (months actually) there will be new life here and its cool cause you know there will be.

Wow Billy, this is the best post I've ever read by you.

Very poetic.

I can't wait to get back to NH with pantloads of snow (of course dealing with it for a whole season... :mikey1: )

My longest commute in snow was last winter. Huge blizzard. It's about 25 miles, combination of local and expressway, that normally takes 35 minutes. That day took me 4 hours. I am pretty sure I could have walked home sooner.

Don't think so. People walk about 4 miles and hour which would put your 25 miles a bit over 6 hours to walk. Then if you factor in the blizzard, I don't even think you'd make it home.

Hey I know I got my tires taken care of. Tell that to the other folks who are slipping and sliding and crashing into the median. Or the people with the big SUV's that think they can do whatever they want in whatever conditions because they have "4WD." You would think that people in the Chicagoland area know how to drive in snow but apparently not, IMHO.

They aren't nearly as bad as Michigan drivers. I fear for my live any time I see a Michigan plate.

Yep, and I still gotta be in at work by 7.30am. Man, I need to find a new profession.

Who are you and what have you done with Billy's account?

Don't undo it necessarily, I kind of like you better than Billy...

Maybe it's because my commute is < 2 miles.

Maybe it's because I ski and snowboard.

But I say bring the fucking snow. Bring it!!

Actually, I'm disappointed because the latest reports are only calling for 3-5 inches.

Boooooooooooooooo!!!
