Torrent of Rubbish: Gyrfalcon: Amos Quito: Gyrfalcon: Geotpf: It hailed a little here in Riverside, California. First time in many years. Oh yeah, and some crazy ex-LAPD cop shot up an RPD squad car (the RPD wasn't even involved in his grievences), so there's that as well.He's out in the snowstorm right now up in Big Bear without shelter, apparently.[cheerfully]Here's hoping he dies of hypothermia!They wish!Alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner has vanished.More than 24 hours after Dorner allegedly shot and killed one police officer and injured two others, police say they have no idea where the former cop with a vendetta against police has gone. "He could be anywhere at this point," Sheriff John McMahon of the San Bernadino County Sheriff's Department said today. Police are also trying to determine whether Dorner left his burning car on the side of Big Bear Mountain and earlier dropped his badge in San Diego as diversionary tactics to distract police."I'm betting that he was long gone by the time the burning truck was spotted.That was last night. He's still up on the mountain, and as of this afternoon, they had narrowed it to an 8-sq mile area.But with any luck they'll only find his frozen, coyote-gnawed corpse.LA Times is reporting that authorities believe he's left the area.Link: http://touch.latimes.com/#section/718/ article/p2p-74330898/

screwzloos: Headline sounds oddly familiar...CSB: A couple years ago it warmed up enough to rain in December here in Fairbanks. The pavement was still -30F from the prior days, so the rain instantly turned into polished hatred.I still had to get to work in a town with virtually no public transportation, so I hopped in my 350Z (with winter tires), and only made it about halfway to work. Coming off the highway, I bottomed out on a groove in the ice, spun sideways into the oncoming lane, and hit a full size truck.
Maus III: Ever driven a Prius in a snow storm? It's like a trout trying to ride a farking bike.

advres: Live on the North Shore. Just took a little walk around the beach. Windy as hell, tide is getting pretty crazy. One plow has come down our street so far, lots of snow. Making a rib eye, some spinach, drinking more beer and heading out again./wearing my snowboard gear.//storms always remind me of being a kid.///suck it up nancies and do some exploring tonight and tomorrow on foot.
Agatha Crispy: Wow, you sound just like John Wayne. Except for the one plow thing. And wearing snowboard gear around the beach. And making spinach. But other than those things, the 'suck it up nancies' part really put some hair on your chest.
Deep Contact: To the bar!! Mush!!
fanbladesaresharp: d1zzy32: I'm 12 miles out of boston. Planning on uploading new tunes to my mp3 player and loading my backpack with beers. I'm WALKING to my buddy's place tonight. At least I won't get arrested for driving!I'd ask to join and bring some cards and maybe a sled full of wood but I'm in CA.

mark12A: Hmm, nothing like a "crisis" to bring out the over the top authoritarian streak in our "public servants". Is it really necessary to threaten people with a year in jail? Dontcha think people know better than to drive out in a blizzard unless it was a real farkin' emergency? These state officials have so little regard for the intelligence and maturity of the populance it's a wonder they allow elections. Can't have amateurs indulging in Self-Determination, leave it to the Professionals!
OtherLittleGuy: If only there was a way to get around without cars, buses, or any motorized forms of transportation....
Yamaneko2: Not really...people are sure that their emergency is worth travelling through a blizzard. Then they get stuck on the road and have to get fished out by emergency crews.
James F. Campbell: d1zzy32: I'm WALKING to my buddy's place tonight. At least I won't get arrested for driving!Uh... I hope you're not serious because, man, that's a bad idea.
Lsherm: OtherLittleGuy: If only there was a way to get around without cars, buses, or any motorized forms of transportation....You can't walk in 24 inches of snow, especially not during blizzard conditions. Technically you can, but it would take you an hour to get a 1/4 mile provided you actually lived that long.
Axel_Gear: Wow way to be overly dramatic. Its just Boston dude. You would think that new england turned into ice planet hoth or something.

ReverendJasen: Axel_Gear: Wow way to be overly dramatic. Its just Boston dude. You would think that new england turned into ice planet hoth or something.I think a few people here watched "The Day After Tomorrow" one too many times. For those of you in Texas or California, there's these things called "coats" and "hats" and us northerners put them on to keep warm in the snow./grew up in Cleveland in the 70s//playing in deep snow during blizzards as a kid was fun, and look, I didn't even die!

Disaster Transport: Good luck east-coasters. Reminds me of my college days & all the lake effect snow in MI. Out walking the campus after a particularly heavy snow, and my bf and I realized we were walking on the landscape shrubs, because they only directional point of reference were the buildings themselves. I then vowed to move away from snow and only got as far as Chicago./ so far
