We're not seeing much in the way of "winter weather" here in the Great White North(east), other than sub-zero temperatures...

So far all its doing is giving the county practice brining the roads for when we get a good storm. I'm ok with this. I moved from Wisconsin to escape 6 months of snow. One month of crap weather is fine.

I'm normally first in that particular line, but we're not even there yet.  This is really the first "weekly cycle" (where you have to bust out the shovel every 7 days or less) of the year.  Once that has gone on for a month or more, I'm usually ready to fight God with my bare hands, but not at the start.

And in my neck of the woods, it hasn't even been that much.  An inch here, couple inches of slush there.  Once a foot or more is comng down on streets that haven't been fully cleared from the last foot-plus snow, you'll hear me howl, but until then, this is actually "mild".  Could be milder, but still.

Haven't gotten squat here in Indiana yet. Really should be snow on the ground. It hasn't even really been all that cold, though that could change late in the week.

in the southern portion of the eastern seaboard, weather isnt all that bad. inch or so of sleet.
supposed to be snow at the end of the week but it doesnt seem like its going to be all that much for us.
we dont usually get much snow, though, usually more on the ice end of the spectrum

Man, peoples' elderly parents still panic shop when the weatherperson says it's going to snow.  One of these days they'll be right.  Things will be like they were in the 50's.

A milk sandwich is the kind of sandwich where you have two slices of bread.......

and you wish you had some milk.

NC coast here.  Forecasts are calling for .5"+ of ice accumulation, which is.....that's bad.  I'm fine with snow, ice can fark right off.  Half inch is enough to start bringing down branches and power.

But hopefully I won't have to work Friday.

Third time they've forecast snow for Hampton Roads. The first time we got a light dusting after rain. The second time we only got rain. This time they might be serious. Sounds like a good opportunity for me to work from home on Friday either way.

One can only hope it's not as bad as that storm we had back in October 2013.

Salmon: Wtf is a milk sandwich


When it snows in the South, everyone has to run out and buy bread and milk. Bread for making sandwiches if the power goes out, milk because it's an essential that you generally need to top off on. But most people don't seem to know the reason for the second one, and a lot of people panic-buy milk as well. I saw more than one small-looking family buying two gallons at once on Friday. Had to go to two stores to find even one, and that second one was almost out as well.

So, naturally, jokes about making "milk sandwiches" emerged.

If the power goes out, buy a Hustler magazine to save power on your phone.

Neat.

Anyway, has anyone heard fom Tonga?

It feels like no one cares, and maybe it's just gone.

But some southern dandies might get some snow.

Those are the items people are least likely to be stocked up.  For the other fresh items, we usually talk specific not general and the specifics have smaller fan bases.  Nobody says I'm going to the grocery for fruit vegetables and meat.  They'll say strawberries carrots and pork.  But they do for bread milk and eggs.

Fark off.

There's like three stories a day on Main alone about Tonga, and they have plenty of comments. Go to one of them instead of biatching here.

As someone who once lived in the neighborhood of Tonga and now lives in the South, I can and do care about both stories at once. People with more than one brain cell are capable of such things.

Some of us are personally affected by this snow and care very much about it. They are not "some" people to us, they are ourselves.

Also, take the subtle homophobia of "Southern dandies" and stick it up your ass.

Pretty much all vehicles were rear wheel drive back then. Not ideal for driving in snow, unless set up for it.

Got 4" of snow Sunday, then sleet, then ice, then rain.. heavy rain.. streets were clear Monday morning.  Don't know what we'll get this time : Thursday, Friday , and Saturday.. snow blower is gassed and tested.. meh..  Generator is automatic.

...And standard production of antilock brakes and steering control systems weren't around until what, the 90's?

Drifting in the snow, even in the '80's was fun.  I imagine drifting and spinning and sliding while in traffic is not fun.

AWD is best for that... had a work van with RWD.. could go anywhere.. now have a FWD car, with tools/parts in the back.. guaranteed to get stuck : no traction.. can't hang extra weight on a plastic bumper....

The way grocery stores have just in time stock it only takes a day or two of people adjusting their weekly schedule to really mess things up.

Thanks to living on a road so icy that I can and have sledded on it, we've been snowbound since first thing Saturday. Didn't expect it to last this long, but I have supplies for a while and can always attempt to walk or take the 4WD car to get more if I have to.

We're now on Day 4 of being snowbound and I fear we may not make it through Donner Pass until Spring. We have run out of hardtack to eat, so are resorting to cannibalism. Jebediah Springfield drew the short straw. His final words were "But that's not the short straw!" followed by "Aaaiiieeeee!"

I hope the city snowplows get here soon.

Forecasts are all saying the snow is probably going to be well south of here west of Pittsburgh. That said, they are forecasting the the low for Friday is -5f.

The grocery stores were already pretty messed up around here before they started saying "Snow, and we really mean it this time".

People like to make memes about others panic buying milk and bread because just before big storms grocery stores run out.

The reality is that those are high turnover items that run out quickly, but when there is a storm trucking companies don't send shipments so they don't get stuck, so it looks like panic buying.

Sure there is a little bit of people running to stores in advance of storms, but they aren't just getting milk/bread

Careful now. You're going to trigger the hillbillies.

They're going to be hopping mad once they come in from sweeping the quarter inch of frozen death flakes of they po'ch.
