Taking the snow road...

Dear Maniac Driver,

During a major snowstorm, please stay home. If you must be out, or get caught out like some of us did, please drive considerately.

Tailgating is not a good idea. Notice I have allowed ample stopping distance between myself and the vehicle in front of me. If I had to slam on my brakes, I'd slide to within a car length of the bumper in front of me before coming to a stop. You, however, would plow into my backside and send us all into the ditch. Moron.

Note that I am not tapping my brakes in order to stop, but to let you see the brake lights and know that the traffic in front of me is also slowing. That means you should GET OFF MY A$$!

And to the other imbeciles... if the roads are covered with inches of slick, slushy snow, and the traffic is moving steadily, although slowly, this is NOT the time to whip out in front of someone from a side road. Notice how your rear end is sliding all over the place like a salmon swimming upstream? Duh. Notice how you almost went into the ditch? Or how the car you pulled in front of almost took out your side door? Morons. Morons! Morons!!

**deep breath***

Rant over.

You are very funny. I have been reading back posts in your blog.

How come you are hogging all the snow. Our weather usually comes through your part of the country and yet this Winter we are having a Winter drought. We have had one snow storm back in December and we have been living off it ever since with only the occasional refresher snow shower. They are having trouble keeping the snowmobile trails open.

You can keep your air pollution from coal fired generating stations but let more of the snow through to us.

Pebbles, thanks for the compliment! As for the snow, we have to hog it all because we need it traffic? shovel? Yes! That's it! We need it to shovel because otherwise what would we do with all those snow shovels?? lol Actually, you are more than welcome to it. I think we got at least another 6-8 inches in the past 24 hours. I feel like I live in a snowcone machine.
