    It's gonna hit us up here in VA tomorrow morning, not supposed to get above freezing til Monday (and then just barely) so it should be a fun day in the country.

    If only snow was something unique and comment worthy in the northeast...

    govols019 You smell that?

    If only smothering heat and extremely high humidity was comment worthy in the South...

    Really! why? because its snowing? 2PM? Only once in 20 years have they ever called us off the road and it was that huge ice storm and they called us in around 4PM.I got home around 11PM.

    Yeah, we got anywhere from 3 to 8 inches in some areas, which is significant in the south. I have a rural area so I told my center manager that I was bringing the truck back and it will be there Monday. The roads were awful and it just wasnt worth it

    We had about 6 inched here in KS. Not only did everyone finish their day, most were under 9.5. No one over 11!!

    I would much rather have the snow than the ice. Take it slow and be safe. Remember it's just cardboard boxes. The most important stop is your last one. HOME

    I'm a peanut butter man.

    It's nice that your center was able to finish. Yeah, for you. We are not prepared for snow and ice.

    We got 5-6" here. That was enough to shut down I-40 because of accidents. We are woefully unprepared for this kind of weather.
