    Here in Minneapolis we had the famous Halloween Blizzard of 1991. It snowed 30" in less than 24 hrs. It was a heavy wet snow - then it went down to 0 deg F. Fu*ked up the entire city, for the winter.

    Hold on, you may get another storm in a week or two!

    We're already bracing for it...

    Well it is snowing again here - must be all of half an inch so far - no doubt if it gets to three inches everything will grind to a halt again as the powers that be deem it too dangerous to travel and start closing roads. Namby Pamby, Elf'n Safety obsessed government has reduced us to a nation of wimps.

    If we aren't careful this will happen in the USA too. Is it November yet?

    Worse than that - amoral parasites. A whole army of them. People who have no problem not just saying "gibs me dat!" but using force to make you gibs dem 'dat. Either directly or indirectly.

    Got some sleet here in Austin this afternoon.
    People are calling into the radio station with panic in their voices.

    50-60 mph wind gusts here and massive drifting... the roads are scary, even for a wild man like me. The two press cars I have this week are here "until at least next week." They were supposed to be swapped out tomorrow. The delivery services says they can't do anything....
