It started snowing her about 45 minutes ago, but the weather service contacted schools last night telling them that the weather was not going to be too bad first thing this morning, but by going home time it was going to be real bad. Most schools cancelled before it started snowing. I'll try to get a couple picts right now then some later.

Here are picts of the weather here and it's actually started snowing harder as I was putting these on. If it does keep snowing like this all day I definately will be snowed in.

doing donuts in a large, snow covered parking lot is a right of passage for guys when you get your driving license. and every year after that. well, at least it used to be back in the day when everyone had rear wheel drive.

it taught you how to control your vehicle in a skid, and to drive by the seat of your pants.

i still love to power fishtail (aka drifting) around corners when no one's around.

we're supposed to get anywhere between 4 and 9 inches today. yay! let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Yep. That's about what it looks like up here by the lake, Mikki. Except it looks like better visibility where you are.

Aint that the truth BT! We used to head up to the driver's training course at night and let her rip when I was 16. And then a few years later when I had my Z-28, I did so many donuts I spun the alternator belt off..... This was in a paved parking lot though

Or, you learned to execute the "E-brake 180" maneuver in a FWD car. I've done both. Since the current truck is a 2wd model, I went with the fishtails this morning. :)

It's coming down hard and fast today, and it's supposed to keep it up till this afternoon. Looks like we'll be having a white Christmas, for sure.

In my case it was Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, I love Rock N Roll. And I had both an 8-track and a cassette player (I was in transition, lol), so yeah, the tapes were a flyin' .
There's a lot more to that night which I can't get into here ;^) Probably not even the man thread (lol).

I just heard they're calling for a foot up in your neck of the woods.
Good luck.
