Snow in Charlotte... cold F-250!

It was a light snow. Still, I'm glad I work from home on days like this. Fortunately the truck doesn't have to go anywhere!


Next door neighbors Chevy 1500


And the next house down's Toyota


Just thought they looked neat...

Oh yeah, snow shuts down the city... Charlotte/Mecklenburg schools are closed today. We live 10 miles south of CLT, our schools open at 11. No equipment to deal with white stuff. And people go crazy the night before, buying up bread and milk like they won't get out of the house for a week! Pretty stupid if you ask me.

That is crazy to me, I guess it is a completely different world in some spots of the US... We get over a foot of snow overnight sometimes... This year we got a lot of snow early in the winter, and now it hasn't snowed more than a few inches in a month or so... I just can't imagine closing schools for that little bit of nothing, our schools hardly ever close even when we get 10 inches, or it's -50 wind chills like we had a few weeks ago for 5 days straight...

I heard Seattle Washington got like 6" and it was total chaos. They have 7 plows for the whole city.

Me, I count it a good day when I can locate the F550 under the snow in the morning..
I have 36" of snow outside on my lawn, and more on the way. My snowbanks are now nearing 8' high. I love NH.

That was London. Or maybe the whiners from Seattle that fussed about the city being green and not using salt.
