In Minnesota, some of us say: Global Warming, it's a good thing!

The thing with my area is that we are on un-maintained bad dirt roads. Makes a big difference!!!!! Hubby has to call during winter to see how wet the roads are so that he knows whether he can bring the rig home or not. If our driveway is too wet, the ruts from the rig are deep and horrendous!!

I am getting ready to travel to Minnesota, but will only drive as far as the Cincinnati Ohio airport . Even my part of Ohio gets a lot of snow, front wheel drive vehicles are a must. I used to have an Escort station wagon that was a terror in the snow. Now have a Nissan which also does quite well. I just finished up loading my car with blankets, gravel in cans, hats, mittens, plyers, smalll hand tools, paper products, dried foods, water, shovel, hand saw, first aid kit, coveralls and a flash light. Forcast for Ohio in the 50's F and for Minnesota only the 20's F. I think I am ready .

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
