Snow and more snow.

Well the weather in my neck of the woods has hit some national news lately so most people in the USA know how bad the lake effect snow is.

Today was one of those days when I had to got to work at the TV station and create the "school closings" list for all the schools and local businesses that are closed because of the weather. It's a long list...

So while everyone else from college kids to local businessmen had the day off I had to work. It sucks, but it is actually not that bad. I have to get up early in the morning to go to work and nobody else is one the road. I am a really good driver in bad weather so it's OK. It's always the other guy you gotta look out for in bad weather. Who cares if you skid on the snow covered road if there is nobody else on the road to hit?

This weather is awesome for alot of stuff like skiin. It's also a great time of year for video games. There is nothing like chopping a bunch of wood for the fire, throwing off the snow and getting the feeling back into your hands before sitting down to burn a copy of SMS for the dreamcast!

And SMS for the dreamcast is smooth as silk! Look up SMS in the dreamcast junkyard for more on this emulation goodness.

Caleb! I hate snow and yet you made it seem appealing...
We had the usual UK sprinkle recently and all the schools in Birmingham (south of Manchester by about a hundred miles shut down for two days...) We panic whenever it is cold/hot/windy/rains a bit...
Cos we are used to mediocre weather all year round!

Do you work for a TV station?

I remember you had the task of calibrating NFL weather!!!

Oh yeah when EVERY school is closed because of lake effect snow I am the guy who has to enter into the system to be run on air.

I really don't mind the weather.

As long as it's really cold the snow isn't wet snow, just really annoying to pile up to clear the driveway.

A very short drive away people can walk from their backyard to their roof without taking a step up because the snow is so high. (10 - 13 feet!)

So even though it's been bad in my county others are having it much rougher.

But hey! We are used to the weather up here. I have taken the walk to the roof a few times years ago and I will get to do it again in the future. As long as people are smart enough to go out plow and shovel and I keep on carrying wood in to the fire I am all set.
