Not Here

I don't have those concerns here in Texas, but my friends in Wisconsin (the great north woods) enjoyed the picture. Thanks!

One last time...All together now..."We shall not bitch about the snow".

(First two were from Labrador and the last, I don't have a clue except it's some place nasty)
(Sorry about the delay, Chief, I'm back on the dial up and it takes a loooooong time to load in)

We have had snow like that last photo. They called it the blizzard of 1977. To this day in Buffalo there is the annual blizzard ball.

Memories for you Slipshod. The blizzard started at 10 am. I looked outside in Lewiston and said to self. Self, go home. I started the 15 minute drive to Grand Island at 10:15 am. I reached Grand Island and my home at 2 am without my car. It got hung up on the Island at the Plaza. I pulled a gun on a guy with a Jeep and he took me home. The gun is a joke but if he said no and I had a gun..... anyhow, I had over 12' of snow in the driveway and managed to climb over it and got into the house. We were locked in for 3 days fighting snow and drifts. Here's a picture for you for old times sake.

Bo I was working at Donner -Hanna Coke in South Buffalo the day of the blizzard. I ran a 966 Cat wheel loader for the next three days, clearing streets.

The biggest blizzard that comes to my mind that I have ever been in was the blizzard of 1966. The snow was so bad, it was a week before the snow plows made it out our house. I lived in Camp Springs, MD at the time.

Yeh, Labrador...near your Newfie neighbors.... yeh?...Fuhrman blvd had 30' drifts and remember when Rockerfeller...I think it was Rockerfeller, the governor....sent in the monster snow blowers to help out. They broke down in a heart beat. They used huge V plows to break through and occassionally toss a 1970 Chevy out onto the side shoulder. I thing that Jimmie Griffin had the right idea when he said .."get a six pack, kick back and stay off the streets".

A blizzard in MD? That could have been a foot of snow and that state would shut down. My brother lives there and does nothing but bitch when he gets a few inches.
