    Many of my local friends are going to be pissed. You see, around here, when you hit retirement age, the leisure police come to your house in a golf cart and kidnap you and take you to Florida. It's the law. Thus far, I have eluded them. The "Snowbirds" go there for at least 3 months, then they can return home if they want when it goes above freezing. Can't forget toilet paper. Bread, milk, and toilet paper shelves are empty after weather predicts the "storm of the century" every week or so. Gonna have to get me one of them hose bib hoodies. Very stylish.

    I'll help you out. I have an old snow shovel here with the scoop worn out. You can have it. Even with the scoop worn through, it will easily handle all the snow Florida might get. Also, I can fill a few old bottles with water and send them. My water supply is still working great at -30 degrees.
    I can't help with your traffic problems, but nobody can help with that, and after all, isn't that why you live in a place like that? People seem to love their traffic because it gives them a feeling of security to be stuck in a crowd of their peers.

    That's just too cold. You could pour water on the ground and it freezes in seconds. I don't remember if it got that cold in Pittsburgh but we used to pour hot water on the ground to make a slick spot for our sled to glide over where the snow was removed. That way we could make it to the next block. People would have a fit and chase us. Then they throw salt out to try to melt it.

    I can remember once we got 6" of snow. Shut the city down for years. We had to call out FEMA and the National Guard to restore order. ;)
