I'm wondering if it will ever end too! We had 10 MORE inches of VERY heavy snow yesterday. My wife got out of work early because of the snow and I had to go pick her up before the snow plow came through my area. I got the damn car stuck behind my garage on the way back and had to dig it out.

Actually we haven't had a hurricane in over 5 years.  Fortunately ours have been breezes with a little rain compared to New Orleans and the Northeast USA.  Bring 'em on, I like free roofs, I'll I'll be riding while the workers are replacing it too.  Besides, I rode my jeep with the top down last hurricane years ago  ;D

I had to chuckle this past weekend, some of the local cities who are running low on salt have trucked out this "new great idea" in dealing with all the snow. They are calling this new great idea, "furnace slag". Uh, folks, its called cinders. Its black, and you either throw it down instead of salt, or cut the salt with it. Most rural areas, at least here in Ohio, have been using it since forever. I laugh cause this is the only thing they used in my area growing up in the 60's and 70's, AND, only at the intersections.

Yeah, some municipalities here in the northeast are either very low or actually out of salt too. One of them tried to pawn it off as 'using less salt is better for the public's cars'. Of course that one got called and they had to 'fess up.

We got another 4, 5" of wet, nasty snow today. The forecast predicted 1-3" but it was more than that. I had to blow out the place again and my woodpile is now out of sight under several storm's worth of snow. And the roads are an absolute mess; at least it is late in the year and everyone has had a chance to re- learn how to drive in the stuff (or is that now to [not drive] in the stuff?).... again.
