    The best thing about the snow is the when UPS actually uses the EC codes it has legitimacy.

    We've had so many drivers coming back to the building with undelivered stops- last night they had some preloaders show up at midnight just to re-scan everything.

    Had snow, 2 stops and 4 boxes=13.5 hours! And I still have energy to make dinner, go to the school to watch a Christmas program, and enjoy life

    Is that what they call lake effect snow? Is it wet and heavy snow or light and fluffy? We had 5" Sunday but you could sweep it with a broom.

    No---lake effect is in the western part of the state.

    Wow.

    On the bright side something that big will make you forget it's snowing outside.

    What really fun is driving in the snow with 3/4 worn summer tires. Its what we call around here "white knuckle sledding."

    Slide safe folks. :onitswaysmiley:

    Anything over 10" is too much for me to handle.

    We started getting hit around 8:30 AM, and a good coating before we even left the building. Good thing I had 240 stops, or else my little 800 would've been sliding all over the place. Picked my helper up at 9:45, and kept him till the last stop was done around 1800. Wasn't as bad as anticipated. Got stuck a few times, slid at intersections, and my helper walked through every puddle in the zip. Schools were closed, so can't wait to get twice the amount tomorrow. Oh yeah, time for a big Ric Flair here....WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
