Road report said road was clear. I drove 20 miles into town and roads were dry. Light snow, visibility was still an easy 10 miles. DAV needs to screen their drivers a little better. It took me 4 months to get that appointment set up and now I get to reschedule it again. Obviously, they are not the one in pain.

Haha, they were probably so old they remembered when it was $2/cord, so $15/cord sounded outrageous! Hell, I remember $20/cord and thinking that was ridiculous.

He was still trying to get that Dodge running.
There's his first problem!!

What a bunch of wusses... when you finally do get in there, break their kneecaps. That'll teach 'em!!

It's probably a liability thing, actually. Someone went off the road and the department got sued, and here you sit waiting today as a result.

On second thought, break the lawyers' kneecaps.

Minus 28 here also. I had to go out and take snow measurements, maybe 5 minutes. Timber was walking 3 legged by the time we got back.

MTSilvertip, you running around outside nekked again?

I plowed yesterday when it was a balmy minus 8. No new snow, no reason to plow today. Matter of fact, think I'll kick off my boots, prop up one end of the bed, and see what movies are on.

Did anybody watch the news this morning? 6 inches of snow in Chicago suberbs, devastating. Schools are closed, streets are blocked, power lines down, and in some places they are getting sub zero temperatures in the single digits.

Good thing it's no like that here.
