My brother, dad, and myself installed the new heat/ AC unit my dad has his lincese from a former part time job years ago and saved us a crap load of $$$$. We had to run some new gas pipe and we also leveled up the slad we were planning on doing this in the spring anyway. It's nice and warm in the house now.

Good to hear that everything is back to normal!

Well the temps are kind of up here, saying maybe up to 6" more snow tomorrow and the extended forecast says we might get anywhere between 6-10" come this Tuesday! Does this winter ever end!?!?!?!?!? :cry:

It took my cousin 4hrs to get her kids out of school which was only 20miles away and one is a handicapped and in a wheel chair. Talk about be furious if she hadn't have been able to get him.
My cousin (Delta Airlines) got home 24 hours after he left work. He spent the night at the home of another Delta employee who he had never met.

Rabbit is correct about the events.
1. Tractor trailers started it off by loosing traction and blocking the interstates.
2. Locals (yes they all left at once with the busses) took to the side streets, clogging them completely.
Now for the stupid response: "Let's thru a bunch of money at it. We will buy spreaders and snow shovels and all the required storage and maintenance and training so we will have it the next superstorm comes thru."
Then in 2019 when the next storm hits, the equiptment will be rusted or cannot be located and nobody who was trained on it works for the city anymore.

Finally been getting piddles of the white stuff. We're only at 64% snow pack in our watershed. Gonna be a bad summer for farmers and fires, I think.
California is already burning ....
