Ya'll Northerners will laugh
ok I was heading to work tonight while we had just a little snow falling. There may have been a quarter inch sticking to the grass, roads were very clear. Well all these folks around here that have never seen snow were tripping out. They were driving around 20 miles an hour in a 55 zone, hitting their brakes every 2 secs, and just driving plain ol scared. I leave in plenty of time for work but am starting to worry since these people are slow movin it. Then I come upon a wreck and the cops have all the traffic stopped. I dont know how these people ended up in the ditch. I figure they were acting crazy or just trying to slide or something. I dont know but after those other drivers saw that they slowed down to about 10 mph. I bet every gallon of milk in this whole area was sold out!!
Oh yeah I got on a back road and was trying to slide and couldn't even do it.
were. supposed to get some snow tonight glad you guys arent round here.i could imagine what a foot of snow would do to yall:lol::lol::lol::lol:
Here is a bit of camp humor: a few years back one of our hunting buddies brought a brand new pair of Browning insulated boots to camp, I think his wife paid $150.00 for them. Well he had got them pretty wet on the outside and set them by the fireplace to dry. Yep, soon the air was thick with burning leather. He had burned the toes right out of them. He went to town and bought a cheap pair to finish the week out. As soon as I got home I bought a pair of boots in his size carefully cut the toe areas out and installed hinges on the cutouts so they would flap up and down. I sealed the box up and we gave them to him in front of the whole camp. We all laughed so hard most of us we're on the floor. We have them mounted on the mantel. Now that's funny! How about you guys any good stories?
If it gets too bad down there in Tenn. I'll grab a few friends with Plowing ATVs and we'll go open them roads for you folks..:biggrin: :biggrin:
It's snowing right now here in Vermont, I'll have to plow my driveway before I head out to the Sports show this afternoon, So far we have about an inch of new snow on the ground but we're suppose to get 10 inches I think..
another camping story
I think it was a family reunion camping trip, but we were all sitin around the camp fire and most were drunk and my uncle ray fell asleep. Well as he was siting there asleep in the chair he started shivering, so hed reach down around his feet and feel for his blankets (and i guese he found some invisable ones or something cus he didnt have any) but hed grab em and pull em up around his neck and curl up with this blanket. well there really wasnt a blanket so in about five minutes he would get cold again so he would look for his blankets, pull em up around his neck and get all comfy again. This whole time hes asleep and were all laghing at him. So after he did that three or four times a couple of guys gently picked him up chair and all and walked him out into the lake and set him down where the water was just touchin the seat of the chair. Sure enough he got cold and reached for his blankets but he woke up when he stuck his hands in the water. He jumped out of his chair cusin and holerin at all of us. And all of us are just about to die laghin.
It doesn't snow here as much as it used to but we did get 6-7in. yesterday,and the snow is not what was causing the accidents, the wind was blowing the fresh fallen snow at about 25mph. Talk about slippery.
we get an ice storm at least once a year.everything is coated in ice.Now thats slippery :wink:
