    I think this is a rerun. She tries to go in w/the jerk coworker and the hummer ends up upside down. Then it was Phil to the rescue. Or maybe it’s not.

    It’s perfect for today on Long Island. I just got up and there is at least a foot. Drifts are 2 to 3 feet high and there is lots of wind. No one is going anywhere for quite a while.

    Yo, hildigunnur! I’m in Mexico City and it is 10°C, no snow and my lady says it’s freezing.

    @ghostkeeper – Your lame story could apply to any city in the South. Blah blah blah, it’s soo incredibly old and worn-out that Northerners come here in the winter and mock how the South handles snow. What you don’t think about is that the South gets snow once a year, so it’s not practical to spend tax money on a lot of snowplows and sand trucks. Personally, I’d rather they spend money on schools and fighting crime, but that’s just me. Also, the hilarious part of your story is that you neglected is that the overwhelming majority of Atlanta’s population is from other parts of the country, especially the North, yet they’re the first ones to forget how to drive in the snow. I’m sure you could have gotten in your car and driven to the airport, right? That’s what the jack-knifed tractor-trailers also thought on Monday when we got snow… Oh, but don’t let logic get in the way of a good story and a big ego-boost. See you in March when we’re outside in shorts and you’re still digging out from the latest snow…

    Hey lightenup - try reading your user name and LIGHTEN UP!

    chasches: Lightenup has a point. It’s made perhaps a bit forcefully, but I understand why: it’s difficult to stay calm when you hear the same taunts over and over.

    Lightenup: nice come-back at the end! If it’s any consolation, people here in Darkest Saskatchewan forget how to drive every time it snows. Since we don’t get snow days, we get a LOT of major and minor collisions on stormy days.

    And in Victoria BC, half an inch of snow shuts the city down too. They don’t have snow clearing equipment, they do have hills, and as the snow turns to ice, nobody can drive anywhere.

    I shall response with light heart to your suggestion, Lightenup: If it’s early March, send *me* a postcard of you mowing your lawn, and I’ll send you one of me reading a book by the fireplace - unless the snow has melted enough for me to send you one of me cycling. :)

    As someone living in Atlanta, I’m siding with lightenup on this. We live in a city where’s it UNUSUAL to have snow/ice storms, so no- we’re not particularly adept at getting around in it (which is why I’m staying home). Feel free NOT to visit, if you’re so concerned about our competence (or what you perceive as a lack thereof). Also, don’t know where in Atlanta that Canadian was (or when they were here), but our latest “snowpocalypse” dropped 6-10” in the metro area- most of it in less than 12 hours. Yes, we were warned in advance, but that’s a lot of snow in such a short time in a state that’s this far south.

    to laugh at snow, one needs a SUBARU with 4 studded SNOW TIRES… (or a mountain cat ultimate snowmobile)
