Winter started up around these parts again the other day
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:41:55 AM »
Winter started up around these parts again the other day, commute in yesterday was a PITA, little bit better going home but I take a lot of side roads when the freeways turn into noways...

Not quite enough white stuff yet for this kind of display though...



...that'll change sometime soon I expect.

No AlGore sighting though, that's a blessing!

Some Swedes caught this sight...pretty cool, maybe someday here...seen sun dogs and rings before, nothing quite this spectacular...

That's impressive.

Makes me realize how much I miss Calvin and Hobbes.

Me too. 

And the occasional snowstorm.

Oh, wise guy, eh?!   ::pokeineye::   ;D

Where you at now, still in Taiwan?

Man, missed a swell mess on I-94 eastbound this AM...



http://kstp.com/traffic/kstp-traffic-round-up-thursday-december-7-2017-rollover-st-paul/4698250/

...unfortunately for me...my typical route has me enter the eastbound leg off 280 and all it did was lead me smack into the middle of this crap!

Shut down all lanes, sat there for 15 minutes until they cleared this idiots mess...then left 2 lanes shut down and everybody jamming into right 2 lanes...took a 1/2 hr + to move 500 feet!

 ::pullhair::

Some people....

It's winter, get a reliable vehicle, put winter-capable tires on it...and don't be a dipsh*t!  I swear, too many people are completely devoid of the sense God gave the common dog!!!

And the occasional snowstorm.

Ummm. No. Don't miss those at all. I've been from the Rocky Mountains to the East Coast. I hate snow. That's why I live south of I-10.

Although I do regret not taking my children in it. When you're young, snow is cool.
