I know. It doesn't really show how bad it is....well, now it seems to be letting up a bit.

I would shovel the driveways of all the old people in STL if practice would be cancelled tonight.

basically, you have to get all of the snow off the front windshield and back windshield and you are good to go.

sometimes im too lazy and too cold to even do that so I just put my rear defrost on and use the windshield wipers. however, if there is too much snow on the windows it can snap your wipers so its not the best plan.
fortunately, we have a parking garage so our cars wont be covered in snow.
however, at home, i dont have a garage so i have to deal with it in the mornings which TOTALLY sucks.

We aren't getting much accumulation apparently:

(KSDK) - A strong upper level system is sweeping across the Bi-state area, bringing a fresh blanket of snow, the first significant accumulation of the season.

The snow started around 8:00 a.m. in the St. Louis area and quickly deposited a light fluffy coating across the region as temperatures hovered around 20 degrees.

The NewsChannel 5 WeatherPLUS team expects most areas to see 1"-3" of snow before it begins to diminish later this afternoon.

The heaviest snow will likely fall during the mid-morning hours and taper off around or a little after lunchtime in St. Louis. Larger amounts of snow may fall farther east of St. Louis, over eastern and southeastern Illinois where 3"-5" of snow is expected.

As the sky begins to clear late Thursday night, temperatures are expected to drop into the single digits by daybreak. Even so, the arctic air is expected to ease over the weekend.

when you go outside, you start the car, then brush the snow off and scrape the ice off with one of these:



if you're lucky enough to have a remote starter, you can start the car while you're still inside, and then when you get out, your car will be warm and toasty and the snow and ice will just slide right off the windshield.

I'm NOT that lucky.

Maybe I will get one of those. Good thinking, tman.

This is what I use:



My car is too high for me to reach with a short one.

Since I don't drive, I have to take public transportation.

I love it when the rails freeze and the train ends up getting stuck in the frigid weather! And the buses stink during the winter.

We're supposed to get 2-4 in tomorrow.

I'm sure I just took the time to figure out that it will be approximately 131.85 days until my status changes again.

status? which?

ok '78, THIS is what it looks like where i live.

this lake is where i take my canoe when i want to row it.

it's a super-huge lake smack in the middle of southern nevada which is fed by the mighty colorado. it's like, four miles long or something. this picture doesn't even do it justice. in the summer, we take coolers full of food and beer, and my canoe, down to one of those sandy beach areas like in the mid-lower-left there, and we spend all day just swimming and feeling lucky to be alive.



oh my chrod how i miss summer.
