thanks you guys....never even made it to the interstate highway.  the whole town decided to turn out to drive sideways across most streets, so aside from a good laugh, i am out ticket money (and now parked across the street, my house has a minor hill).  oh well, with eight or so tony's, it will be back around again.

meanwhile the entire town is freaking out and trying to buy all the milk, bread, and bottled water in the county.


edit:  if the governor declares a 'state of emergency' in georgia, i will get refunded, said the nice lady at the ticket office.

That's too bad Agonistes, but at least you are safe.  A 3 hour drive in weather like that would have been an incredibly loooong drive, and probably a nerving one.  Hopefully you can get your money back if it's a "state of emergency".

true.  i'd rather be out a couple tickets than out a vehicle, or worse.  plus it's been almost as entertaining watching people try to drive up the hill by my house and fail.

edit:  they cancelled the show, so refunds if not later tickets, awesome.  we're checking for tomorrow night.

Yesterday couldn't have started any better.

I got up and did my routine and left my house at 8 am for work. When I opened my outside door, I noticed a huge and deep snow bank at the end of my driveway that the friendly city road grader left for me. I quickly started the vehicle to warm it up, ran to my garage to get the snow blower. After about 14 minutes, I am good to go. Now its 8:14. I get to second line and lo and behold, there is a long lineup of cars. It was so cold that the control box for the rail went bonkers. Of course, this is a fully gated rail crossing on one of the busiest roads in the city. Not only that, it is one of a few roads that join west to central. I wait and wait. I see people getting out and manually moving the gate up by hand to allow a few cars to pass. I wait and wait. My fuel gauge dings on and I figure at this rate, and with how my luck is running this beautiful morning, I had better get out of here, fuel up and see if I can take an alternative road to work. It didn't make it any easier that I was also proctoring an exam today.  :facepalm:

So I somehow get it turned around. Nobody was going anywhere and I wasted 15 minutes of my valuable time. I quickly fuel up and head down to Conmee. Of course, because the main thoroughfare being blocked, so would all the minior arteries. What a mess...but at least I won't run out of fuel. I somehow manage to get to work but had to park in the far nosebleed section because I am late for my exam. I am ticked off greatly as I run towards the building and up. When I get to my classroom, someone had let them in and they were all sitting nice and quiet. To a last one, they told me that I was late. I was late 5 minutes as the clock stated 8:50. Sigh.  :rant:

I wasn't the only one late though in both staff and students.

Thankfully, the rest of the day turned out better. Man did I ever tell anyone how much I love Winter!  :D

You must be over by nova Scotia then, cause the only snow that's coming down on the map is over by Washington state to Montana, or on the very tip of Maine. JR

My parents were stranded for 15 hours on I20 outside of B'ham, AL.  Temperatures down to single digits with a wind chill near 0.  Fortunately they had a full tank of gas and once the morning light broke they eventually made it home after almost 24 hours in the car. :cheers:
