Too late.

Hard to tell with the snow, but is that a Japanese inspired garden?

I'm honestly not sure. The little pagoda and bridge were there when I moved in.

detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: Ficoce: blatz514: I'll say this, the Atlanta bastards had ice. Snow is fairly simple to navigate in. Slow your dumb ass down and be aware of the 'tard in front of you.

We'll probably have ice on Saturday. Atlanta doesn't have the hills Portland has, but they have people that have never driven in snow either. I moved from Oregon to spend a few years in S. Carolina a couple decades ago. They had a major snowstorm of ice with a 1/2 inch of snow on top - just a dusting. There was an empty part of the parking lot at work when I got there and did a couple minor cookies and then parked. Those guys had hardly ever seen snow, let alone drive in it - I almost got fired for being so unsafe. They had never seen or even thought about cutting cookies in the snow. They were serious and I couldn't stop busting up. I was 10 minutes into my op check before realizing I was on thin ice, lol. Was never so glad to move back home.

"Cookies"?  We called them donuts back in Michigan - I would have never guessed it had regional variations.

/the one that always drove me nuts was toques - in NC they called them toboggans.
//a toboggan is a farking sled not a knit hat you southern twits!

Ahem, a Toque is the fancy word Canucks call a knit cap. But a real toque is more like a chef hat, what the old Euros used to rock back in the day.

However, the Bolivian indigenous people have been rocking them since the dawn of time.


They also wear them in Peru.


Here is a Colombian indian wearing what an original toque looked like, again something they have been wearing before the euros got there.

To be fair, Atlanta isn't always like Atlanta this time.

I've driven through Atlanta with snow on the interstate.  It wasn't all that bad.
