    2 inches of snow the day after turkey day. It's still cold and not melting in the shady spots, and I have another six foot of decking to put on. Where did Fall go?

    We usually get a few inches every year up on the rim in Central/Northern AZ. Flag gets the brunt. I personally hate it, but then again my car handles it about as well as an oil-coated swan trying to take flight. Still suspension FTL. Oh well. Did it to myself, right? haha

    I think I'll migrate to Phoenix for the season.

    I like it when it rains in winter. You don't have to shovel the rain.

    Thanks for the humor. Going to work this morning sucked when the County hadn't plowed the main roads yet before 0600. It's about the norm up here for road care under Gov. Jenny, except for beautification work in the summer. That's special. I took tommorrow off after just about getting a truck into me this morning after last night's snow. I actually like it, just the first few snow falls seem to be bad on out of the area driver's and a few local nut's.

    Went out last Friday morning on a Legion Riders / Patriot Guard send-off mission for a local guy heading for Iraq. Snow started sooner than expected.

    I hate snow.

    Blowing and white out up here today. I feel bad for the semi driver , who had to drive (with empty 55' trailer ) all the way back to Ohio today. I had to put salt under his tires just so he could clear the loading dock.

    I haven't seen snow since Quantico 3 years ago - and that wasn't fun. Reading about it makes me miss home though...

    No snow up here yet, not even on the mountain. We don't usually get much snow until the middle of December, but after that it's wide open depending on the year. 2004 I had to shovel 4-5 ft of snow off of my roof a couple of times, last 3 years NADA! I drive a Jeep so let it snow!! You're right Six, we can always drive to Phoenix and warm up!!
