Getting tons of snow is amazing.  Fuck the haters.  Bring it all on. 

Except when it turns a half hour commute into 2.5 hours.

This, oh my God, this.  There are few things that turn me into a full-on, raging, nearly homicidal lunatic like having my drive home lengthened by a couple of hours because it snowed, some dipshit decided he was impervious to the effects of snow on tire traction, got in a huge accident, blocked off traffic, and made me and every other person in the state's capital have to find a different way home.

7 more inches here.  My gutters are taking a beating even with me owning a roof rake.  Snow never bothered me until I owned a house and seeing the damage it causes first hand.

Sounds to me like Americans need to learn how to deal with snow.  I've honestly never suffered considerable inconveniences from winter weather.  Except for the Ice Storm.

We got about 15 inches here.  Wouldn't have been so bad except that they didn't plow my street and my neighborhood is all hills.  We had my driveway and all of our cars dug out within about 2 hours.

I can't believe they shut down schools for a bit of snow. How insanely weak and cowardly.

I mean, do people not know that there is possibility for minus degrees and percipitation?

Once again, I'll state that even though here in PA we aren't getting NEAR the amount of snow you guys are, it's already enough that I'm getting pretty pissed at repeatedly having to put on clunky boots, clean off my truck, and brave the roads with a bunch of idiots who only half have a clue as to how to drive in inclement weather.  I do not know how you guys do it.

You do what you have to, Coz. We don't have a choice. The worst thing is the snow is piled so high you can't see when your pulling out of intersections. Its quite dangerous. Also, the roads have gotten ridiculously narrow.

I read in the paper the other day that school's closed because the snow banks on the side of the road were like 7 feet. They were afraid of little children waiting for the bus and not being able to be seen by anyone driving.

Driving through New Britain, there are many roads that are normally three lanes and are down to one. Makes for a nice cluster fuck during rush hour traffic.

The sad thing is that these idiots have been driving in this weather for easily a month and still haven't learned  >:(

Chicago area just got it's ass smacked by a huge blizzard with no signs of stopping.  My boss called at noon saying they were sending everybody home from work and that I shouldn't come in tomorrow till 5 pm cause this storm is gonna go all through the night and into tomorrow.  I kinda wish I had a sled dog team right about now.....

Looks like Mother Nature showed St. Louis a bit of mercy today.  That massive storm which is still wreaking havoc all over the country, especially in Chicago, was supposed to hammer us like crazy tonight and through tomorrow morning, following a solid day and a half of freezing rain (from late morning yesterday till about mid-afternoon today), but it inexplicably swerved around us and we are likely only gonna get a few inches by morning.  Wow.  

Hopefully, the peeps in the cities that aren't as lucky will be safe.  This is one for the ages.

Never mind what Space Invader said; the latest forecast is as much as 60 centimetres in the next 36 hours or so.

Its a skating rink outside my door. VERY Icy, VERY dangerous st this point and time. I have to be in work by 11:00. I need the temperature to rise a few degrees. My wife is driving at this moment and I am scared shitless uhtil she calls me and tells me she has arrived safely.
I have been in Connecticut 46 years and never experienced a Winter like this one.
I'm hoping we don't lose power or I down have a tree go down.
Thankfully I bought a roof rake last week and my roof is clear going into this ice storm, otherwise I would have more concerns.

So I arrive at work and the one lot I park in is almost completely empty.  I come in the building and entire rooms are dark.  There's next to nobody here.  Granted I was up 2 hours before I had to be at work, to scrape all the ice of mine and Mrs. Cozmo's vehicles, but still.  The drive TO work wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be, but still wasn't great.  Ugh.
