Exclamation Snow....in the deep south???

Just saw some horrible TV footage of the snow and ice storm in Georgia...

The term 'snow birds' takes on a whole new meaning.

I trust all the forum members in that area of the US are safe and well.

TV coverage of the blocked Highways (I75)was amazing.

James what was on the TV didn't give me any incentive to be over there in the traffic jams. I'll just stick to the high winds and hopefully rain from the cyclone.

Its time for Al Gore to put some of the money he made from the CAGW lie to good use by personally installing Air-conditioning into all of their homes so that all the heat won't take lives, come on Al, pony up the money, N

I hope that you are all well, mother nature, if it is not fires then its floods or a mountain of snow.

my best regards to all of my forum friends.

If anyone is snowed in then use your router to get out as a good quality router with the correct cutter can do anything. N

Hi James
Location,location,location!
Up here in Minnesota we're getting that much as we speak and nobody even thinks twice about it. You tend to get used to it and life goes on. My apologies to the South but I would not trade places.I've worked in Florida a couple times and you may keep it!

To our friends 'Down Under', what happens in the US South is that it gets below freezing, a bit of snow falls with ensuing panic. Drivers, if originally from the South, have no idea how to drive in slippery conditions. If they are immigrants from Up Nawth, they have lost their winter driving skills. There is little if any snow clearing equipment as it is seldom needed. Then everyone figures that they absolutely have get home NOW.

We 'need' this guy:


My 'Up Nawth' back yard - this was last year, this year is the same:

Yep! Looks like my back yard now! Soon as the snow quits I' get the skid loader out and clean out- again!

To our friends up north. Since snow is a rare occurrence in the South you are right, we don't have the ability to deal with it, but it will be in the 70's in SC on Sunday. We will be thinking of you still out there shoveling that nasty white stuff. Snow is pretty (as long as we are seeing it on TV in somebody else s back yard. Keep warm and hope for an early Spring.

p.s. I've never known anyone who retired and moved North.........lol Just kidding guy's.
