February 1st, 2011, 12:24 PM #1The Blonde in the Blizzard
It was snowing heavily and blowing to the point that visibility was almost zero when the little blonde got off work. She made her way to her car and wondered how she was going to make it home. She sat in her car while it warmed up and thought about her situation.
The blonde finally remembered her daddy’s advice that if she got caught in a blizzard she should wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it. That way she would not get stuck in a snow drift. This made her feel much better and sure enough in a little while a snow plow went by and she started to follow it.
As she followed the snow plow, she was feeling very smug as they continued and she was not having any problem with the blizzard conditions.
After quite some time had passed, the blonde was somewhat surprised when the snow plow stopped and the driver got out and came back to her car and signaled for her to roll down her window. The driver wanted to know if she was all right as she had been following him for quite a long time.
The blonde said that she was fine and told him of her daddy’s advice to follow a snow plow when caught in a blizzard.
The driver replied, “Well that’s just fine honey, and you can keep it up if you want. I’m done here with the K-Mart parking lot and I gotta go cross the way to Sam’s Club next...”

Yup. We got a blizzard here in the Ozarks. First actual blizzard warning issued in the 30+ years we've lived here.
Now if I have to get out in it, I'll know to look for a snow plow -- but perhaps let it pass if I see a blonde driving behind it ...

I clicked on this thread to read it because I thought that it might be about me. LOL
Ice and snow for us here tonight. They are warning everyone about power outages, but I am prepared!

We've been in the 60s and 70s most of the past week, but the temperature plummeted last night and we got freezing rain and snow. It never broke 20 today and isn't supposed to get above freezing until Friday. That's nothing compared to most of you, but pretty cold for here.

As far as "prepared" for power outages -- you have a generator? fireplace? both? We had a serious ice storm here in January 2007 that left the entire city (almost entire) with no power for anything from 3 days to 18 days. That was one of the most horrible experiences I've ever gone through regarding winter weather. Ugh!
So we were all thankful here today to find out that only ONE resident in the entire city was reported out of power, and that was restored within half an hour. Music to our collective ears! (NOTE: Wouldn't want to suffer the embarrassment of being that one and only power outage.

A bunch of our guys in Chicago lost power and internet *gasp*...we've got about two feet piled up in front of our doors, so kind of restricted inside, but not too bad at all. I'm definitely getting a ton of catch up work done!

Our power has been off and on today (mandated rolling blackouts in Texas) and my ISP has been awful the past couple days. I'm spending most of my time waiting for things to load or the power to come back on.
