If you've ever seen a canadian snow storm just before you had to go to work, you wouldn't say that.

Reminds me of the guy who's wife wouldn't let him park his plow truck at home because it "looked ugly". He worked late most of the time, so he said "fine, YOU shovel it!" After two days of that she relented and let him park it at home.

Anyone ever notice how most of the US presidetns last names are british? With the execption of Eisenhower and a few others...Most of hem have been british..I wonder why? Given there are alot of British imigrants. But still, it seems like there would be a bit more diversity.
Well, the country was originally settled by British immigrants and founded by British descendants, so it's not all that odd. It has become more diverse, lately, with both Roosevelts (Dutch descent), Kennedy(Irish), and Reagan (Irish). I was going to add Nixon, but he was of Scotch descent, so falls under the British umbrella. Also, immigrants here have tended to adopt British sounding names, as this tended to make them fit in better. If Colin Powell becomes president, we won't assume he was descended from Enoch Powell or Baden-Powell.

Good morning all. Hello to all those who are snowbound. As an Upstate New Yorker who has to deal with several feet of snow in a snowfall on a regular basis (last count it was over 110 inches so far this season), you have my sympathy. The only difference is when we get the amount of snow you're getting, we're still expected to go to work/school/appointments or whatever else. Stay warm and safe!!
How's everyone doing this morning? Have we gotten a replacement jukebox yet? Maybe we should put a gate around it to keep Arion from slamming into it. [img]graemlins/biglaugh.gif[/img]

Morning all!!! Well we have 5'+ drifts covering the front porch and windows..so no sunlight from there....there are 4' drifts in front of the garage doors which won't even lift up...Im glad we went out and got a few extras yesterday now...I think we are stuck untill we get plowed out.

Harley, the difference between where you are and where we are, is that the streets have enough of the snow removed so as to allow cars with 4" of ground clearence to be able to run....even the main roads here are still covered with a foot or more of snow. The Jeep can navigate it ok, but the Grand Am is dead meat. But on the other hand, I don't need to go to the office to work.

[/QUOTE]I'm not questiong Nixon's heritage Attalus. rather the use of the adjective 'Scotch'. It means he was decended from whisky! The correct adjective is 'Scots'. A small point I grant you but you wouldn't believe how much it upsets the Scots when it's misused.
