    You had to remind me...

    Brawl's release is cancelled for me. I tried to explain to the cop's, but they said that a game release wasn't an emergency? Wtf do they know!?

    xD

    My first reaction was, "woah i wish we got snow like that". But on second thoughts the chaos along with it must be a major pain in the ass.

    Keep warm :D

    how is that level 3? we get dumped on way worse than that all the time in Michigan, That looks like pretty much any day of the week here next to the lake..lol

    Even so atleast we have it setup for whena snow emergency is declared aslong as you have an ORV you can go about your buisness.People driving snowmobiles,4x4 trucks and the such to get around.
    Even then last time we had a snow emergency declared in Michigan that I remeber we had over 3 feet of snow in a 12 hour period. That is the only time employers even let you off the hook for missing work is when an official Snow emergency is declared. In Michigan it's expected for you to deal with it.

    Don't forget to grab some coffee before work.. ha ha

    The kids get off school all the time still though, a good 6-8 days so far this year because of snow. I think the bus drivers are just bigger panzys than they use to be.

    ^If that is the case, than the level of said 'emergency' could be resulted by how experienced the drivers are in the weather. If you're used to that much snow than it won't be an emergency for you. Hypothetically, if someone has never seen snow before, than a few inches could be an 'emergency' for them.

    I haven't looked outside yet today, but we were supposed to get 25-30 centimeters at some point this weekend, and I believe it snowed all of last night.

    Up North they are supposed to get 50 cm, thats crazy. 25 is enough for us, and we already have nowhere to put, the snowbanks are high as is. "Awesome March Break" :lol:

    you live in ohio so you understand how TERRIBLE the drivers are around here. closing down the roads was an excellent idea because the people who drive in ohio usually are terrible

    Its been snowing all morning here in Georgia, which is unusual.
    but it's 40 degrees, so it wont stick :(
    that sucks that a video game isn't considered an emergency

    For sure, and if the area isn't setup to deal with the snow, even in a couple inches of snow for some ares, without plow/salt trucks and a vehical that can make it through your pretty much grounded.

    Woah, that's a lot of snow. I'd be happy with a snow day, not that bad though.
