    Yeah, I, kinda, callled in Sept 25th. Kiss my arse....

    Big storm predicted here too. Former tractor-partner already said really bad out west today. Ain't seen any regular east-bound.

    Hope the sound of my "ice-clinkin" adult beverage doens't upset him too much.

    Well, honestly spoken, as I sit here in minus 20C winter here, and surrounded with 3 plus somewhat feet of snow, I'm "Schadenfreu" (somewhat happy), to have you fellows experience a taste of Canada ! :)

    My area is looking at 1" or more of ice and several inches of snow on top of that. I'm wondering if they postponed starting those 2 new feeder drivers this week. lol

    I'm in Mi and we are expecting 15 inches of snow overnight on Tuesday. I've never had to deliver in conditions like that before. I was wondering what to expect. Why even go in? We will be getting stuck all day!

    Just be safe and make good decisions. As far as calling off that's your call but I man up and test my skills out there. Nothing is expected of you on these days except bringing it in accident and injury free.

    Yep, snow days are easy days. The next day suks, though.

    Pst, Klein, use your German spell checker, then actually use the right words. The phrase you used has an e at the end, is a noun and translates to
    1. malicious joy
    2. gloating
    3. glee
    4. spitefulness
    But then again, that is probably what you really meant, since the USA is so inferior to Canada.

    Sorry Danny, meant to type the word as an adjective, which is "Schadenfroh" !
    You can't write for example; "Icn bin Schadenfreude" it's not proper grammar. - It's "Ich bin Schadenfroh"

    And don't forget the "d" if you write it in another sentence such as : "Oh, wie groß war seine Schadenfreude"

    I always enjoyed a big snow - unless it was on a Friday. We would load up with grit (chicken grit) for traction, make sure we had a shovel and if you had a P 400 or an Econoline you had chains. All bets were off and it was kind of fun to see just what you could get delivered. There was alot of walking through knee to waist deep snow. Most of the time you would get your whole route done. You would get off late at night then go have a few beers with the guys. Then when you got home you would have to spend the next hour or two cleaning out your own driveway.
