Salting the Streets is for the Stupid — 5 Comments

  1. You should come to sunny Ireland. For the last couple of weeks we have had a couple of inches of snow. The entire country has ground to a standstill – most roads closed, public transport very sporadic, very little gritting – total chaos.

  2. There’s one very nice thing about all those people buying white. The grocery shelves have plenty of pumpernickel, blue cheese, and Cabernet Sauvignon for those of us who aren’t afraid to brave the flakes.

    Where I am, we’re getting considerably more than a “dusting” — unless you’re using Miss Havisham’s standards. Still, it’s far from the worst storm I’ve ever seen . But who knows? Perhaps this snowfall will be known, in future, as the Great Blizzard of oh-ten.

  3. @Catcher: 8 inches? 8 inches? Did you know today is Double Entendre Day for commenters? You knew that right? Sandwiches? I’ll make you a sandwich.

    @Grandad: Ah the Emerald Aisle with a bit ‘o’ cream and chaos, sounds charming.

    @Larry: Yes, as the day wears on, we are now up to actually something measurable. Great Blizzard of oh-ten. Love it.

  4. Seems that in Kentucky, they need to have a driver’s test every two years including the written test and the drivers actual test. Here in Louisville when it snows or even when its dry out, people drive like maniacs cutting everyone off as well as driving 15 and 20 mph above the limit. If we had some decent traffic enforcement, the state would make a killing. I grew up across the border in Indiana and generally they don’t play.

    As far as Kentuckians not driving well during snow or handling snow, well, some people just aren’t too bright here. It goes for the usual scene at the store, listening to some of them talk, and the general basic education in the state which is horrendous at best. At least they could attempt to teach some of the locals basic English so they could spell and communicate in a basic mannner. I don’t think that worked out too well for most them.
