    Wonder if there was ever any truth to those “gravity hills”? A big chunk of underground magnetite or some such?

    Actually, I read an explanation about that. Apparently, the hill only appears to be higher than the surrounding terrain, in actuality, they are lower, so cars are rolling downhill … it just doesn’t look like it.

    Winter Haven, FL has such an illusion on one of its side streets: at the bottom of the hill, put you car into neutral and your car will roll forward as if it is rolling UPHILL, despite seeming to be on flat ground. http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2058

    That must explain why I was able to run barefoot 20 miles to school every day, uphill both ways through waist deep snow in my younger days. I miss that hill.

    Satch must have hip dysplasia. It’s all down hill from there.

    I didn’t know you went to the same school that I did…at my school it started snowing in late August, and it didn’t clear up until May!
    Today’s young whippersnappers don’t know how hard it was back in the Good Old Days!

    I’m a wimp when it comes to heavy snow and admit it!
    .
    Despite growing up in central oregon, I came to really dislike snow when I worked in Klamath Falls. 96" in the first 3 weeks of january 1993. Started snowing and never stopped for 3 straight weeks. It packed down to about 6 feet but it was like a barrier everywhere. Roofs had to be shoveled off several times a week. It was made worse by the City contracting with the Air Force at Kingsley Field to keep their runways clear and they had to do it before clearing anything in town.
    .
    I was used to walking, particularly when doing surveying, but this was insane. Most things shut down. Had to walk to work (not bad as it was only 3 blocks), but it was 2 miles to the nearest grocery. That was a MAJOR pain, because one could carry two sacks at best and hope not to get bogged down or trip or slip or drop the sacks when one slid a little in the snow. Too much snow to use a bicycle. The city and county piled the snow in the middle of the lanes, knocking holes in them for people to turn through. Not many on the road except 4wds and I had an old 1969 muscle car that was useless on snow. I just left the car at work.

    @all
    You were lucky.
    I had to get up in the morning at ten o’clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing “Hallelujah.”
    But you try and tell the young people today that and they won’t believe ya’.
