THanx, QC! Now I know a good comparison price! And I know how to stack properly! I wonder how many people here have been taught how to properly create a wood stack?

Wonder if I can find a link . . .

Well, I can't find a link w/ a diagram. Just remember to NOT stack right up against the house as this method will collect moisture. Do not stack wood directly on the ground - lift it off w/ 2 logs, posts, cross ties, etc. Stack your wood so that air will circulate in between the rows. I stack the first layer, then stack the second layer cross-wise to the first layer, and keep repeating. I cover w/ a loose tarp, secured by rope to stakes. But again - loose - so air can circulate.

Ahh well, I'm not too concerned about it. I've driven in snowy streets before plowed or unplowed, icy or not. I've spun out into ditches and surfed the drifts.

Although, I will say a few snowballs may be in order...

Don't forget to top off the gas tank in your car. Nothing like being stuck on the highway in a snow storm and running out of gas while trying to keep warm.

I don't usually visit the CLT forum all that often, but being an avid southern snow skier, I just had to drop in for a visit. As a lifelong North Carolinian just transplanted to SC (), I'll mention a few southern snow experiences...

When I was a child in Raleigh (50's-60's), we used to be able to sled down the banks behind what is now Daniels Middle School. I thought that was the BIGGEST hill. I still have my Flexible Flyer sled with metal runners (no discs for us back then); we had enough snow to use real sleds.

Years ago, the biggest snowfalls in NC would be from storms coming up from the south. I believe it was March, 1972 when we had over two feet of snow in Laurinburg (I was in school at St. Andrews Presbyterian College). The same storm dumped snow across SC and GA, including ATL.

In 1987, NC had a freak snow storm in early April... same weekend as the GGO golf tournament. Sugar Mtn had closed for the season but re-opened for two days, without benefit of snow making. I still have a t-shirt specially printed for the occasion.

Anyway, I sure hope we have a "good" winter for NC skiing this year. See you on the slopes!

I wouldn't mind getting out there and doing some donuts in an empty parking lot...

Not that we ever did such a thing up north..

I wouldn't mind a little snow this winter. At least my husband won't have to shovel a 250ft long driveway anymore. .
