It is kind of hilarious how some Southern folk react to a dusting. :D
I have to agree last year we go some good snow and I remember going out for a drive and people was like WHAT!!! You're crazy I was like no I am used to this type driving everyday I lived in South Dakota where 17' of snow is nothing .

Some people just go to the extreme these days , But this type shopping helps the local Business owners though so NO complaints.

It's my fault. I went to church today. My wife was singing in the choir and she wanted me to see her sing. The moment I walk into a church, I expect to catch on fire, get hit by a lightning bolt, hell to freeze over, etc. Apparently it was the later this time...

And yes, I left my :censored: gun outside of the church in my truck...

Remember two factors, though: First, South Dakota is used to snow and has the road maintenance equipment to keep up with it. Second, its cold enough in South Dakota that the snow doesn't melt during the day and turn into a sheet of ice over night. Even people from South Dakota can't drive on ice :)

A lot of S. Dakota is pretty darn flat - that helps a lot.

However, I suspect that most of those SD 'drivers' are just folks who happened to be in their car when the wind picked up and started blowing their vehicle down the highway. They're probably just hanging on for dear life.

My car doors are frozen shut, thermometer on the porch reads 18 degrees (at 2:45pm), so it's not going to thaw out any time soon.

How to get in so I can start the car and run the heater?
OK....Here's what you do.

1. Get a cup and pour some gas in it.
2. Pour it around the door.
3. Shield your face with your hand.
4. Put your cigarette against the car and draw in.

Edit! Edit! Make sure not to place your drank on the car top, put it behind you in the snow.

17 feet?
:bsflag:

And even 17" is significant.

You can't BS a native Minnesotan.

Well I assumed groats was going to town alone. Plus the "drank" will freeze slower than the beer.
Also I should point out that the idea of setting the drank in the snow behind him was to give him something to enjoy while he was laying there.

I bow to your intellectual prowess. My concern was the possible alcohol abuse that would occur if the beer was in the line of fire. I was not considering the positive of having a beverage ready in the resting place... :lol:

That's what's funny to me. That there are so many yankees who live down south that can't understand why everyone panics. I seem to remember this thread from last year. It's not the snow, you furriners...it's the ice. Luckily, there will be little ice with this one.
