Here in Memphis snow is a 4 letter word. Even the first hint of flakes or the mention of white death puts everyone here in a tizzy. Tonight I am working and they have issued a winter weather advisory. The powers that be are in full flight. The watch desk phone has rang at least 3 times in the last 15 minutes with various chiefs calling to make sure we have tire chains ready to go. Having lived in the pacific northwest for years, all I can do is laugh. In the 10 years I've been here I've never seen more than a couple of inches on the ground, but the way the bosses are reacting you would think we had a blizard comming.<br><br>I can see it now.......at about 3AM I will be up having my crew putting chains on our 63,000 lb ladder truck for the 1/4 inch of snow on the ground. You have to love it!!!!!!!<br><br><br>Salus populi suprema lex
Salus populi suprema lex
LOL. Tire chains on a 63,000 lb. ladder truck. I have considered tire chains for my Camaro, but what fun would that be? After living in the Pacific Northwest, you must be biting your tongue... <br><br>Monday morning in my driveway:<br><br><br><br><br>
LOL. That is a classic. I used to rent an inner-city townhouse apartment where I had to park in the street. I had to shovel out my parking space, which wasn't fun after the snow plows had pushed all the wet, heavy snow up against my VW bus. Then I would come from work at 11:30 pm only to find my next-door neighbor parked in my space, with his parking space all full of snow. I would then have to shovel out HIS parking space, too! <br><br>
LOL. That is so funny. I sure feel for that guy. <br><br>I recall a blizard in 1970 where the snow was completely over the top of my two cars. Correct that. there was a bit of red showing through from my 66 Bug.<br><br>dave<br><br><br><br>
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
Oh yeah, that one's great. It made the Ten Best TV Commercials of 200X show. I haven't had enough coffee yet for a successful search, but it's on every year. (I haven't had enough coffee yet to remember which channel). The winner this year was about children and engineering . . .<br><br>Did I say I hadn't had enough coffee yet? <br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it.
