Lotsa Snow and Work

Thu Feb 7, 2008, 5:23 PM
42o oo Hits!</U>

Thanks for visiting, and thanks for your support for over a year!

Oh man, if you live in the anywhere between Kansas City over to  Chicago to Toronto over to Montreal, you probably got hit with some serious snow. Here in mississauga we got a two hit combo with the first 15cm falling  Wednesday early morning and then the next batch  later that afternoon. All told, about 30cm with breif batches of freezing rain too.

If you were south of that, i hope you werent one of the unfortunate families that lost lovedones. Apparently 50 people died in this storm, and even one life lost still hurts a family.

Thanks again for all the commission requests, i am getting them done! I am also have other work to do as well.

Sorry for along absense! I will write a better journal soon, and reply notes and comments!

Asalaamalaikum = Peace be upon you!

I'm one of the ones that got hit with all the snow....I've had to shovel 7 times within the past 5 days. >.< We haven't had winters this bad near Chicago for probably the past 7 years at least!

Although, I've got to say, I'll GLADLY take the snow over the Tornadoes. I've seen 8 in my lifetime, but luckily have never been damaged by one. Hope everyone is safe!

We've gotten almost no snow this year which is unusual in Maryland. At least you Canadians know how to drive in the snow. Hows that Civic holding up?

I love handbreaking in the snow! I try not to overuse it but its real good at straightening out the car when it seems determined to overshoot a turn. Stupid FWD. I have "ALL SEASON" performance tires on my car. Its got too much torque and just goes all slippy slidey in snow or rain.

All seasons are BAAAAD. Don't believe the lie: if you are doing winter drives, get winter tires. Sweden does it, and makes fun of (us) Canucks for not doing it. I guess I mean "us" for Omar... Anyways, yes, ADVICE BEAM FIIIIREEE: get winter tires.

If I drove in snow constantly, I would get winter tires. But considering the most snow we had in Maryland, USA this season has been a few inches in December, I usually risk not having them.

Well, I have been hearing that southern China is getting nailed with repeated snow even though they are only supposed to have like 5 day that are below 0°c.

Seoul South Korea in winter goes down to -6°c on average in January and February, unless youa re way waaay south, you get snow too. Doesn't have to be cold to snow !

It's freezing in Arizona. Not so bad today though, but man...last night was like in the low 30's.

Too bad about them people who were less fortunate. Not always easy hearing about that kind of stuff. :(

we got another 2 days of snow coming. We have had mainly rain (60 miles south of Chicago) but it hits the ground and has been freezing. So the roads are very nasty. I'd rather have plain jane snow.

I know x___x It's been snowing like heck here. *is having 2 days of Snow Day* I heard it's going to snow more tomorrow <___<;. Also, I heard that this month of winter will be a pain (from what I heard). I hope that won't happen though... x____x

Congrats for your hits btw =).

I live in a california Desert and have yet to experience the hardships you guys face. Perhaps some day I'll move to one of those types of places. But it'd certainly take me a while to adjust.
Yeah, it certainly was a horrible storm to hit these people
