    Edit: currently 6 degrees F here. My 77 year-old house is making those creaking noises again like it always does when it's really effing cold.
    Yeah, you live in a place that knows how to deal with snow. I don't think my city even had plows until a couple years ago, and if you watch people clearing snow around here, you realize that they are pretty much making it up as they go. I watched a guy plowing the Wal-Mart parking lot. If he had a plan, I sure couldn't figure it out....unless it was that he was paid by the hour. He'd do one pass in one direction, then go push other snow in a different direction, leave a ridge in the middle of a road, push snow into the place he had just cleared, and generally wander around aimlessly.

    However, somebody DID plow my street on Saturday. I don't know whether it was the city, or some local on an ATV with a plow on it. The job was...indifferent, at best, and they plowed the snow up onto the sidewalk I had been keeping cleared. Since it happened at night, the snow had a chance to re-freeze, and a few more inches fell, so when I tried to shovel the walk, it was a hard packed mess. I gave up on the part that the plow had hit the worst, but managed to clear the rest, which is the part most heavily traveled anyways. Oddly, they appear to have plowed the cul-de-sac, while skipping the somewhat more main street it connects to. It also wasn't so much plowing as leveling, as the packed snow/ice on the road is still a few inches thick.

    Then it snowed more, then turned to rain, and the temperature topped 40 this morning. That hard packed snow on the road is starting to melt and reform into wet ice, which has a friction coefficient around 0. I saw a guy in a truck who was unable to get traction on the flat ground. He wasn't sinking in, his wheels just couldn't get enough purchase to move the truck forwards.

    What a fine mess.

    I was at Camp Edgewood which is close to DeQuincy, LA so kind of further north. It got done to the upper-20's and we actually had ice on the ground. In fact there are large metal poles to keep vehicles from driving over a certain plot of land and inside the poles were frozen icesicles!!!

    Re: Post Race!

    It's the mystical, white, powdery substance that landed me on my butt twice, yesterday. My boots were TERRIBLE for that snow. I should have just stuck with sneakers, despite the new snow being a bit deep. I had some good snow boots, but they disintegrated last year and I didn't bother replacing them because....snow in Boise is so rare.

    Well, THAT wasn't a good plan.

    Re: Post Race!

    I considered cross country skiis, but couldn't think what I'd do with them while in the store. The boots that disintegrated were my snow shoe boots, so until I replace those, snow shoes won't work quite so well....and I still wouldn't have a place to put them.

    So, it got up around 40 degrees for a couple days, and rained steadily. That wasn't enough to melt the snow, but it was enough to turn it all to slush. Instead of several inches of hard packed snow and ice on the roads, we ended up with several inches of mushy slush that cars could easily sink into. Perhaps because of that, perhaps by chance, the city decided to plow my neighborhood yesterday evening. Since it was residential, with lots of vehicles parked on the street, they just did one pass in each direction, which left rows of massive slush/snow boulders lining the streets and blocking in all the cars. They didn't plow the cul-de-sac that I live on, so they left those snow boulders right across the mouth of the street. I saw some people moving them by hand to get their car into the road, but by the time I got some boots on, they had made it past.

    Now the road is a bunch of deep canyons gouged into the saturated slush all the way down to the pavement. The ridges of snow can be eight to ten inches high, with vertical walls. Each car moves them a bit, or fills one while creating another. That would be fine, except that tonight the temperature will drop, and we'll not get up near freezing for the next week, with lows in the single digits. That will make the street pretty nearly impassable, as that slush will freeze to solid ice, trapping the canyons into whatever current configuration they happen to have attained.

    A buddy of mine hasn't been in to work for a few days because he can't get his car past the end of his driveway. I may be in the same situation by tomorrow.

    What a total mess.

    Re: Post Race!

    They sent everybody home early twice so far this year. They do that when the roads are so nasty that people shouldn't be driving. Of course, folks are already at work by the time they make the decision, so you're kind of hosed anyways. Still, they do have a code for that. Who pays I couldn't say. Didn't matter to me. I saw that the roads were sure to be horrid and telecommuted each of those days. No special leave for me.

    Re: Post Race!

    If you are salary paid - like a weekly amount - the company takes a hit when there is a snow day.

    If you work as a teacher you have a contract for 180 teaching days - you will make up that snow day with the kids. No extra $$'s in the long run - you signed a contract for your annual pay for the school year.

    If you are a custodian at some school - you are paid for hours worked - you get nothing for the snow day and your employer does not lose anything either.

    If you own a restaurant and you get 3 or 4 Friday/Saturday night snow events in a row you might actually find yourself in a bigger financial problem...

    Most of the contract jobs I've had last few years at least had the option of working remotely and a couple have been all remote due to the distances involved. No excuses for being snowed in or sick.

    I'm sure you would hate it. Imagine having to park your Mustang and drive a beater car or truck for 4-5 months every year like I do!

    But for those of us who grew up here it's no big deal. I lived in Chicago for a few years where they get a lot less snow but it's always a lot more cold & windy. I prefer the lake effect snow and milder temps here (not to mention the cost of living.)

    Now it's a freaky 60F with temps expected to drop well below freezing in the next 24 hours. Glad we don't get these wild temp swings in the summer...

    This is the story for Louisiana's winter. We always have it to where one day it is nice in the low 70s and then the next day it is in the 40s and then in a few days it warms back up only to repeat next week.

    Re: Post Race!

    Our five day forecast is sunny and COLD.

    So, I got stuck trying to get into my driveway yesterday evening. All-wheel drive Subaru with good studded snow tires, and I was spinning the wheels without being able to move. I ended up getting out and adjusting the snow by one of the wheels. I thought I'd have to shovel out the others, as well, but wanted to be as quick as possible, since I was broadside across the road, at the time. That little bit was enough to force my way through into the driveway.

    However, the temperatures dropped considerably, and all the slush has frozen into a strange ridge/valley tableau of ice, much of which is higher than the bottom of my car. I'm not at all sure that I could get to the plowed road, especially without tearing parts off the bottom of the car. Even if I did get out, I'd never get back in, so I'm stuck.

    Might have to take a sledge to the ice later on, and try to knock down the bigger ridges, cause there's no change in sight for the next week.

    I'd need MANY bags. The ice is about a foot thick, maybe more.

    Upon further thought, it would be pretty funny to melt a path to my driveway, considering how deep the ice is. I wouldn't do it, since it would quite rightly piss off all the neighbors, but it would be a hoot. I'd be able to get to my house, everybody else would have a canyon they'd have to cross to get to their houses.

    Re: Post Race!

    I always wondered what do poeple do when they cant get in to work because of the snow.
    like Shaggy i dial in remotely, i had to do that for a whole week a few years back but not recently.

    So it sucks to live where it snows lol.
    Well that depends ... if you like Skiiing / Snowboarding or not !

    I do remember that a while back my Dad did a contract job over in Finland which he said was the coldest place he had visited. He said basically the locals dealt with the weather by using Sledges and Vodka!

    I reckon the snowball fights in LA must be a bit of a washout.

    L.A. is going to have some stiff football competition now: Raiders, Chargers, and Rams.

    The Raiders play in Oakland, and will soon call Las Vegas home.

    Edit: and I wouldn't call the Rams ("Scrams" LOL) or Chargers (putting the "1" in Cleveland's 1-15 season) "stiff football competition."

    Perhaps not, but at least their fans will be stiff.

    Both the Chargers and Lams have made recent changes in hopes of having a "decent" winning record next year. My bet is still on the Las Vegas Raiders

    That's normally how it is for us, too, though not this year.
