I'm not arguing the point to be prepared, like a NORMAL person...but don't act like the world stops tomorrow...that hyper-negative-preparedness is what's getting at me lol

Well let's hoe it turns and we BOTH will only get the tail end or something Truth be told I'd not mind right now for the phone to be DEAD about a day or two

Thanks for reminding me Angel. Snow coming in tonight thru Thurs. morning. The worst part is it always always always snows Wed. night making the longest, most horrible drive I have anyhow worse. Yep, Denver morning rush hour. It can't snow Mon night or Friday night. Nooooooo it's friggin' always friggin' on Wed night. Always. And you just reminded me that bad weather was on its way. Thanks for ruining my dinner. j/k

I'll take snow any day thank you. I just won't have anything to eat :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I don't really miind the snow, it's the frigid temps I don't like. At least people in Colorado know how to drive in it. In Kentucky it's like everyone is thinking me first! Me first" and it causes accidents. I'm from Colorado by the way.

No they don't know how to drive in it. They either should know better but drive too fast because they think their super all wheel drive suv can do anything at any speed or they are from California and have only seen snow in pictures.

Angel, I hear you completely. We're in for the same ice/snow storm here in Bentonville Arkansas. People are freaking out here too. My wife just made a trip to walmart to pick up a few things. They were completely out of bread, eggs, milk, and water in Walmart town USA....lmao. Good thing we're always stocked on that stuff (we have a 2 year old boy).Our whole neighborhood has wood burning fireplaces, and i think we're one of three that uses it...lol. We're lucky with the power outtage situation though; I'm a stone's throw from the major airport in NWA. Last ice storm though my parents were out of power for a week....anyways good luck coping with the idiots to everyone out there. Watch out for the crazy drivers!!!!...Constant vigilance i always say..
