Where's my damn ice scraper?

This looks like a job for Mr. Plow.

    Finally the guy with the yellow car seems to have made a good choice.

    I always loved the shot in Fargo where William H. Macy walks through the deserted, snow covered parking lot to his solitary car.

    I don't think I've ever seen as much snow as I saw a couple of weeks ago in Baltimore/DC.
    They had gotten 32"** and most of it was still on the ground. Baltimore was a sight– no off-street parking, so people were trying to dig out their parallel-parked cars, with no-where to put the snow. There was about 6" of hard-packed ice on the streets a week later.. and most of the two-lane roads reduced to one. Character building.. but fun.
    **For our Canadian overlords, that's approximately 1 meter.

      I'm sure most Canadians have sympathy for y'all. For some reason we have less than a foot of the white stuff on the ground right now (North of Ottawa). Very strange. My wife went to school in DC and tells stories of the place shutting down after only two inches of snow, 32 inches must be traumatic. I was in Memphis when they had a 6 inch dump, holy crap it was dangerous! No plows, no salt, no nuthin' , except sheet ice on the highway.

    Pssh. Mr. Plow is a loser (and I think he's a boozer).
    So you'd better make that call to the Plow King.

      Mr. Plow that's my name, that name again is Mr. Plow.
      I love the fact that Barney had some sort of relationship with Linda Ronstadt. "We've been looking to do a project together for some time."

    While a few snow-plow drivers would look at this photo with glee (I Bury Them ALLL!), most would look at it like me,… Where am I going to put all that snow? While most of you probably think we love putting that huge wind-row across/into your freshly shoveled driveway/parking space, for the most part that couldn't be further from the truth. I got a new neighborhood as part of my route this year, and noticed that if I pushed all the snow a certain way, I could fill up this weird corner lot that had nothing on it while leaving all the driveways clear and the snow could melt at its leisure. Made a pile about 12-15 feet high……. right over a fire hydrant. The locals had to build a snow cave so the Fire Dept. could have access. Ooops! No good deed goes unpunished…..

    My back aches just looking at that picture. You need an airport grade snow thrower.

    Ugh. I left WI 13 years ago this past November. I now live in the shadow of Dulles Airport, I literally watch the planes take off over my house. We got 40+ inches in the span of a week. It was INSANE. Made me actually want to move back to WI. I was not pleased. I won't go into a long diatribe about the snow removal – they really did what they could with what they had. But WOW it was a hot mess around here until about yesterday. Seriously. NO MORE.

      DFW got 40 inches? That's gotta be a record. My homeboy in Rockwall didn't mention any snow, but it's been a few weeks since I talked to him.
      I used to live in Phoenix and if there was ever any snow/ice the schools would shut down immediately. It wasn't a frequent occurance, but I'm sure that AZ kids were thrilled to get an actual snow day. It only happened about once every ten years or so.

        Oh gosh not DFW, IAD, outside of DC. Can you imagine if Dallas got that much snow? The earth would stop rotating on its axis! I was out driving in it all but one day…the actual day of the storm. Lemme tell ya, the amount of mid 90's Hondas and Toyotas stuck in the snow was amazing. It was a lesson in driving defensively, for sure.
