    well, 2 days ago, it was rain/wintery mix.... little accumulation at best.

    this morning, they are saying 12-18".


    wtf? how does a storm change so much in such little time?


    either way, i hope it snows like a bitch! :)

    12" isn't that much. with people diriving on it, and the ocassional plow, there's usually less than 4" of depth on the actual driving surface.

    When your job is basically you driving around all day 4" is a lot to deal with in a minivan.

    Couple that with idiot drivers without headlights on, plows working 12 hour shifts and not being able to keep up with just the DRIFTING from the 35 mph gusts on top of the new snow falling visibility is less than 1/4 mile.

    There's a level two snow emergency for all of Allen county now. I get to work and 20 minutes later my brother says "we have nothing to do, everyone go home... except for you James, stay to answer the phones until we get back"

    I said fuck that, we had 3 calls. 1 for an employment application, one was Sharons husband and the other was Kathy's exhusband.

    wtf? fuck this. I'm going home.

    1 inch tonight, suppose to get 10-15 tomorrow with 30mph winds.

    i doubt we'll get that much, the lake pretty much protects us to an extent.

    Wtf, I want an ice storm =(. It hasn't snowed here in about 40 years... Who will let me stay at their place for a weekend? I'm in need of a road trip anyhow. I offer money and/or my body. I'll have you all know Plan B is reserved for females or anyone with a convincing wig.
