    Close the city down and call out the guard to dig you out!

    Back in I believe December of 2009, it was reported that all 50 states had snow on the ground. Northern Florida had snow and Albany, NY still hadn't seen any. We made up for it though, 2 feet of cement in March...So remember while they are getting snow first, they'll be 75 and sunny while its snowing in your town in April.

    I drove to the mountains before to plow. I-40 was completely snow covered and it took 4 hours to get there. Want to feel very lonely? Do that! I won't be doing that again.

    same thing happened here about 5 years ago Christmas eve on the way to clear a lot , we sat on I-76 from 11 pm to about 4 am . weather turned to sleet / ice within 5 minutes and there was a pile up 3 miles ahead .

    luckily we were prepared with snacks and drinks .

    That's worse...just sitting there. I was the only one on the road for a while. I think I went 45 minutes without seeing another car on the road. No street lights on I-40 either.
