My wife works at a preschool and I drove her to work this morning.

On another note... So I noticed something driving Kim to work this morning. People will drive over the speed limit, their lights off, and their wipers on full speed. They won't clear the snow off their lights, so you can't tell when they're braking. They also talk on the phone while driving through snow on the highway.

Then, my brilliant neighbor laid a blanket across their windshield last night and closed it in the front doors. It rained a bit before it changed to snow, and now the blanket is one with the car. I've yet to see someone pour hot water on their windshield and crack it like I saw in NC though.

How can people be this stupid?

I'd say we have about 5" here in Washington-Virginia Vale. The roads were icy and snow-packed when I drove to Cherry Creek to get coffee this morning. I LOVE IT!

I saw a guy on my commute home (I may or may not post video snippets of it later -- I made some, uh, comments about what type of person he is while recording him on my cell phone), who didn't bother to clean off his back window this morning (and it looked like he just let his side windows' snow fly off).

I looked at his face as I passed him, he looked completely unfazed by the situation.

Drive from Boulder area into Denver this morning was dicey, but doable. It sounds like the southern suburbs were hit worse than the northern, but there was plenty of snow all around.

I'm back north-er; it's cold, sun's out, snow's melting. Here's a photo:

Oh yeah, I love the people that don't brush off the snow from the top of the car. That way when I' behind them I have to deal with the huge slabs of snow/ice that fly into my car.

Some idiot drove off the road this morning with huge chrome wheels and summer tires. He blasted the side of my car with snow.

I've already had it with this crap! My sprinklers are supposed to be blown out today... guess that's not going to happen. The temps are running almost 30 below average. If I wanted to live in Fairbanks, I would have moved there
