    ....anybody heard from Lou lately? He lives somewhere up in the eastern part of Pennsylvania, right in the middle of all the blizzarding that's been going on lately. He might need some help digging out since he's getting old you know.

    I'm still here Bobby. I spent the last two days snow blowing, shoveling, and breaking up ice. Was out a bit in my vehicle, now I'm just waiting for warmer temps to melt what remains. Good times! :rolleyes:

    Good to hear that you are able to dig out. I guess you had to sharpen up the edge on your snow shovel before the bottom fell out. Got enough supplies, new books and munchies to ride out the storm and the aftermath?

    Plenty of supplies and BOOKS. Like my wife said, it's a good thing we like to read. Got out a bit, the roads aren't too bad. I've never understood the wiping out of milk, bread, and eggs. At 70, I've been through lots of snow storms. I've never been stuck inside more than a day or two. I guess the urge is something I just don't get.

    Apparently Lou, everyone seems to crave French toast when the storms hit. :D

    But for some reason the grocery store still has lots of ice cream, go figure.

    Yeah...But why in the hell do all these idiots need bread and milk in a blizzard?

    Only in Pennsylvania...Or does this happen in other areas too.

    Maybe 6" or so. The snow wasn't a big problem, but it was mixed with rain so it was heavy. It then froze so it was really hard to blow and shovel.

    Just wait until Spring and it will melt off.

    Dang. It snowed about an inch and a half here about 9 years ago one night. All melted off by noon. Y'all's snow is pretty tough.

    We have varying curse words for each type of snow. Kind of like the Eskimos.
    Heavy snow is the worst, because it means it is near melting point. And if it turns to ice- it can get ugly.
    Quebec had a devastating ice storm a while back.

    The colder it gets, the lighter the snow.
    It can be too cold to snow here.

    Yep, it was ugly the next morning. About a foot of an ice/snow mix blocked the car in...Used a shovel and spading fork, broke the shovel, and had to do most with just the spading fork.
