Yeah, that would make a difference. We have a shit ton of canned and dry goods in the pantry and basement. Too much in my opinion.

Re: Winterpocalypse 2016!


I may live in the city now, but I was a 'mountain man' growing up. I lived nearly all my life up in the mountain area of San Diego. I hate the city and plan to move back to the mountains after the kids graduate HS which is in 2 years.

I used snow chains simply to avoid going in a ditch or smashing into a tree or something else. It wasnt because I didnt know how to drive in the stuff. Even with a 4WD truck because black ice dont care what you drive.

I was just curious why nobody used them where the snow and ice are the norm.


Pretty cool.

Re: Winterpocalypse 2016!

I just want to express how much I hate people who don't clear the snow off the top of their cars before driving. Yeah, great, you saved yourself five minutes, and now you have chunks of snow flying off your roof and smashing against the windshield of whoever's behind you. It's going to be worse tomorrow when these idiots have a crust of ice on top of the snow and it slides off in a single sheet.

The people in my neighborhood do it on purpose. They go up and down the street and do rapid starts and hard brakes until the snow piles slide off their car..

Just a few weeks ago when that El Nino storm hit, it dumped a really good amount of snow in the local mountains and they would not allow any vehicles in the area drive without snow chains.
A few decided they didnt need them and ended up in ditches because they slipped off the road due to ice.

The amount of news video I see of cars and trucks, slipping and sliding, I think it is perhaps a good idea instead of slamming into each other like bumper cars. But that's just me
Chains aren't legal on plowed roads here (Michigan). The heat-cold-cycle and salt already does enough damage to our roads. They are legal in a pinch for safety reasons but you aren't allowed to drive on them if you touch pavement. Not practical to install, drive, take off at plowed road, put back on, etc.

Thus you only see them in places not likely to be plowed (backroads in the Upper Peninsula for example, mountains, etc).

I'm not sure what the harm is here in leaving the listing up. As long as there's no deception or fraud ... if someone would rather stay in a homemade snow fort than have $200 in their wallet, what's the problem?

Re: Winterpocalypse 2016!

Got 36 inches here. I shoveled twice Friday night, thinking I'd stay ahead of it and keep our sidewalk and two parking spots clear.

Slept for 8 hours and woke up to a drift halfway up my front door. Managed to keep my heat pump clear and working through the day, but did little else due to bum arm.

Then my shovel broke Sunday morning. It's been a painful few days.

Re: Winterpocalypse 2016!

Great video....amazing.

We're due for a big storm starting tomorrow morning (midwest). I'm working tonight but then off for 4 days. Rather not be out on I-35 writing crashes...so my days off are coming just in time!

The Atlantic has an article about how the people where I work kept going through the storm.

I knew we wouldn't get by with only 1 major storm in WI this season...12-18" of wet snow and 40mph winds expected tonight/tomorrow. Yay.

It's been mid-60s here for about 10 days. Been pretty nice. It's usually colder.

Re: Winterpocalypse 2016!

It was 75° yesterday. I took my son around the neighborhood in his little wagon. Woke up this morning to blizzard conditions, 30° temps, and no power.
