    my wife works for a Head Start program as a teacher. She still has to go in on all snow days, or else take a personal day, which you have 5 of for the year.

    But as for snow around here: People don't understand how to drive in/on it. that is the problem. People want to drive like it is sunny and 80 degrees, when it is snowy and 0 degrees.

    Plus, we don't have nearly enough snow equipment to be able to clear main roads off, around here.

    Happens first big snow fall every winter here. People trying to drive like they did all summer. Then the provincial police go on the radio and remind everyone we are in Canada and to stop being idiots.

    Yea the tires dont help, but til today never had an issue. This snow is wet, once its packed down, very hard to drive on. You just get bogged down.

    If I could just get out of the driveway Id be doing good. Freaking driveway is about a 45° angle

    Is it a long driveway? Can you take a run at it?

    Snow sucks. I hate it, and I am ready for Spring in a big way. Ice is even worse. I scoff at people who get fuzzy feelings about snow. F#$# that. Get a grip.

    Ice caused a gigantic limb to total my car last Tuesday. F Ice.

    Wintertime is only magical because it reminds us of getting out of school, and of getting free stuff from Santa. Snow sucks.

    There's my poetry about ice and snow. Titans Eternal would be proud.

    Northerners are funny when it snows in the South..
    Like they could do any better driving on an unprepped sheet of black ice in a cluster**** town like Atlanta on summertime radials.
