Holy crap, I can't believe how everyone in this area goes to pieces when we get a few inches of snow!

So true! Last week we got 12" of powder snow up here and the schools only had a 2 hour delay.

And that was only so the kids could get first tracks.

Nope, I got first tracks as they were getting ready for school. The kids up here are lucky though 1st grade through 8th they all get a half day once a week and they go to the mountian to ski/ride. Then once they get to high school if they join any of the ski teams they get to spend mondays at the mountian for practice. I'm super jealous......

I reminded myself to bring the empty gas container with me to work up until almost right before I walked out the door. Something shiny and oh look a deer. Heading to Home Depot now to get a gas container. :rolleyes:

Been there, done that!

we'll get 4-ish hours of snow, 2 hours of sleet, then  a couple billion gallons of rain.

Here's to polluting the waterways with all that municipal salt!

The governor is getting aroused just thinking about how much he can spend on new publics work projects, building desalinization plants for our freshwater reservoirs, lakes, and rivers.

Somewhere along the way everyone became pansy asses.   I grew up here in North Jersey... I remember standing waiting for the school bus, while it was snowing, in my snow boots standing in 4-6 inches of snow and still went to school.   now we get the potential for a inch of snow and school is called off.   I just dont get it.

School bus?!  You had it easy. I remember being 7, had to walk 3 blocks to school, trudging through unshoveled sidewalks with the snow coming over the tops of my crappy rubber boots soaking my socks.

3 blocks away lol?   I had to walk that just to get to the bus stop.   Elementary school was 1 mile away, middle school was 6 miles away and high school was 4 miles away.

Either way ... we had it easier than our parents.. and the kids today have it even easier than we did.  My father still drops the old fun line that when he was a kid he had to walk 4 miles to school in the snow up hill both directions lol

Unless things have changed in Trenton, today was a state holiday, Lincoln's Birthday, so they had the day off anyway.

18 Feb is the state holiday, today is a State of Emergency. this is from the state website The people in upstate NY and the NE area must think jersey people are a bunch of babies. But then again listening to 101.5 (radio) a short while ago lots of folks are paying bumper cars out there so there's that...
