I do agree that Deep South drivers have no business on icy roads, as we don't know how to properly drive on em.
Every winter we have people drive off the road trying to not run over a snow flake.

For the most part people do not slow down for anything, I saw on the news tonight where IDT may raise the speed limit to 80/65.

IMHO this is just a wreck waiting to happen.

How fat *are* your fingers, considering that the P is on the far upper right of the alphabetic keyboard and the Z is in the far left corner.

It has me thinkin' you're typin' one fingered with one of those foam rubber number 1 thingies people take to sporting events.


WHOOOOO doggie....weather man just said 40* and partly sunny by 4PM tomorrow!

There's some things a guy just doesn't tell about himself and the size of my fingers are one of them with me.

News Releases - Traffic Alert: I-20 Mississippi River Bridge...

I may have to give some customers their money back on special order tires that were guaranteed to be here today.

OK, so we're here, all systems go. One limb the size of an average man's thigh came down *beside* the patio, thankfully not on it.

DH is out cleaning that mess up, but the icey rain is still coming down! I think he's actually enjoying being out there......as stated yesterday this is something new to him. Me? Ain't nuttin out there that can't wait until the thaw.

I slept in wmtire, so I wasn't aware of the wreck/chem spill.

I saw a headline on the on-line version of the paper about wrecks...are there lots of idiots out wreckin' themselves and putting rescue workers in danger? Did YOU drive in?

Checking now to see if satellite TV works. It was out for a couple hours last night due to icey cloud cover. OK....that's working too.

I see a small band of snow headed through here around noon.


Shoulda seen Fred wmtire! Every blade of grass is like a fat needle. He was STEPPIN HIGH! Then he just sat down....oops that won't work either...HELP! I literally L'd MAO.

Hopefully those customers realize the guarantee failure is out of your hands. I mean, what could they do with those tires if they did come in today? Here's hoping.

LOL, that Feb. 11 forecast was yesterday. Trust me it wasn't nice.

I'm hoping the 15th and 16th holds, and I'm *keepin'* it!

You know it's cold way up here, and I've had my fill of winter! We have lots of snow and snow storms, however the freezing rain you folks have down south especially on your hwys is a lot more treacherous than what we have to put up with! Hope it all disappears for you folks real soon. Happy camping.
