    Just drove home from work

    ABout 4 inches of snow (minimum) on the roads already and more falling as we speak.

    My car DOES NOT like the snow - the silly mutt is all confused by it! :chuckle

    As I got out of the parking lot at work and hit the side-road intersection, I turned a tad bit hard and ended up doing a 360. I musta been doin a 12 mph. Had so much fun, like an idiot school kid, I did it again a couple times right at that spot.

    Turned off of Main St. onto my street where there is a solid deposit of pure snow and more fun! I pop the clutch... slooooooowly and my wheels point right but my car wants to keep going straight! :chuckle. Thank goodness I drive a stick, or else I could NOT have been able to coax the car up the driveway incline into the garage.

    Nope! My mutt of a car acts very confused in the snow!

    Ooooooooh, fun times! Can't wait to share this with my parents and give me Father a heart attack and me Mother an ulcer!


    Meh! Gotta get back to those blasted papers. :stone

    *Keeps repeating in head*

    I'll survive! I'll survivie! I'll survive!....

    I envy those who got snow or rain...we got ice! Uh what a slippery dangerous mess! Good thing school is out and I don't have to drive anywhere. Just snuggle up with my pup under some blankets and surf the web all night, then sleep in tomorrow!!! Wohoo!

    g'day everyone
    i've been a bit slack lately!
    been busy shopping for christmas and trying to get parcels wrapped & posted, plus cards written and posted. boy! those shopping centres are deadly places this time of year! why are people so unhappy?! :icon_sad: and rude! :angryfire think i'll shop online next year. :typing
    enjoying delightful summer days and looking forward to spending time at the beach. only trouble is; big white pointer sharks have been spotted along the coast! two young swimmers have already been taken by sharks in the past year. think i'll just wade near the shore.:uhoh21:
    hope everyone is well and happy.

    good morning to all

    i missed you guys yesterday. was busy at work & at home & just never realy got here.

    well, we chicagoans got snow--actually it is still snowing.
    of 2300, we had about 9 in. & believe me, it is stilll snowing in most areas.

    this is one of the earliest snows ever in the season!
    this is not a good thing. previous studies show that when we get snowed on this early in the year, we get an average of 60 in. in a season.
    and you wonder why i had wanted to get out of the north!!

    good morning to you all!!

    bethin, thanks for starting the thread. i hope all is turning out well for you.

    roy, so the old car doesn;t really like the snoe, either!!

    soldierswife, you are definitely right about the ice being worse then h ice.

    i was going to address everyone, but i have a pt calling--got to run

    i'll be back

    Morning . . . grumble. Woke up at 12:30 a.m. with a nightmare and couldn't go back to sleep and so cheated myself of another 1 hour and 15 minutes of sleep before the alarm went off. Working today. Blech.

    Bethin - a "one way ticket" to Hawaii?

    Roy - I can just see you in a snowball fight - maybe we will get more before Christmas and I'll challenge my boys.

    MaryAnn - good grief that is alot of snow . . . .I just have a dusting left on the lawn.

    Hi Grace -

    Sue, soldierswife, jane, Donny . . . .have a good day.

    Hi Ho, Hi ho, it is off to work I go . ... :Melody:
