We all know how that ended the highway jammed and lots of accidents. I think this time they're taking more precautions and hopefully they'll put salt on the roads like they're supposed to.

People are probably stocking up on food because they're not going to be leaving their homes anytime soon. So might as well make sure you have enough food to cook dinner etc. In the meantime I'll be stuck on this crap college campus.


Which college?

People suck driving in the snow up here too, don't let them fool you. I drive for a living and the one thing I fear in a snowstorm is not the road itself but the drivers on it.

People who laugh at this sort of thing are complete dicks.

I live in Georgia, and know that our roads aren't made for snow, they're made for FLOODING. When your state only gets snow on average 5 years out of 30 years, you aren't prepared. I live on private property, with ZERO pavement. A LOT of people out in the rural areas have this situation, and any snow will screw you over. Getting out of a muddy Georgia red clay snow monstrosity is hard. And in a city like ATL, it's extremely congested.

Canceling things prevents accidents in an ill-equipped state. No snow trucks, no salt, nothing. All we can do is tell people to stay home with water and food and wait it out.

People on their weather high horse are ridiculous. Areas that have that much snow have the proper equipment, roads, and preparations for snow. Yes, some people act like it's the end of the world, but rather than laughing, realize that it's something those folks aren't used to.

There is no "novelty" to this situation, or to people not knowing how to handle something foreign to them. I'm from Cali, and lived there 22 years, did I laugh at the East earthquakes? No. Why? Cause they weren't used to it.

idk about in GA but here in SC the snow was melting while it was still falling By the time it quit half of what little had accumulated was already gone. it just hasn't gotten very cold; where I am it hasn't even hit the freezing point.

tomorrow, on the hand, is a different story...

True. I tried to visit home the other day and found myself in the midst of cars stranded in snowbanks every half mile because of the ice and drifting snow. I turned around when I came across an ambulance blocking the road where someone had skidded off the road into the underneath side of an overpass bridge. Then by the time I got back to my place it was full on white out and my windsheald wipers that had frozen to my car and subsequently broken where not helpful at all. I thought I was going to die. And I do this every year. I can't believe I'm planning to move even further north. What in the world am I thinking?

If you give us lip about the snow causing problems for the south, then ask New Jersey if the Hurricanes we have in the south are easily weathered. Even the west would hate 8 inches of rain in an hour for 5 hours or so, they would slide all the way to the bottom of their flash flooding mountains. Cold, Wet, and other things suck no matter where you are.

yea I think its rather funny, plus the fact that most people can't drive in it and can cause 100 wrecks or more in a day, freaking slow down and tap your breaks, don't slam and hold em thats what makes ya slide people.

The stupidity will never end

Finally went and got that Coke Zero - 5 liters - as well as some snackoos to tide me over if it gets too bad.

Hopefully it's not too bad, though, as I must needs still get a new cell phone (after accidentally washing my old Blackberry) and would also like to go pick up my copy of Tomb Raider - I bothered with a preowned CE for the Play Arts Kai figure, and whoever had it before was a major dick and put the soundtrack in the jewel case to fool the shopkeepers. Dick move, guy!

Anyway, yeah, people here freak out about it because snow and ice aren't common in GA. You'd think they'd get used to it happening on occasion, but every time this happens they act like the world's going to end or summat.

Imagine if it actually snowed for 2 days!!! and it was more than 2 inches!!!


Wow, a 22 year old calling other people lazy like he had a clue. If you look at your hand's right now, would there be a single callous? You're still young enough to enlist in either the Army or Marines. Please think seriously about it, as you would most likely get your training in the South in the summer and your drill sergeant would probably be either one of those 'lazy' southerners or someone who's married one of those 'lazy' southerners and would appreciate your attempts at humor.

How does it feel like ?


Cold, wet and it pisses the cat off.


But there is something very funny about watching a cat trying to walk in deep fresh snow



Yes there is. I really appreciated the hateful way he looked at me, as though he was promising a small dead thing would be found in my work-boots.

The South will slide again! Bad joke?

I'm from Chicago and people here forget how to drive in the snow every year. It's kind of sad.

There is also the fact that humanity likes to be dramatic.


No, no, that joke (all sarcasm aside) was funny and it's 'not too soon" either. I will be using it and claiming it as my own.

Yeppers, my nephew is saying the same thing in Dahlonega and I have to remind him that 'he's on a college campus with snow'. The probability of hi-jinks ensuing is high.

I know very well how lazy they are, don't need your approval. I have plenty of marks and embedded metal in my hands from working out and machining for 4 years. As for enlisting, it's not my calling. Now enjoy your quoting extravaganza.
