    We are back in the ice box in Tulsa, after near 70* temps Sunday, the wind is blowing crazy, it will slow down today, gonna be silly cold till Thursday then another warm up, these up and down temps are playing hell on my body.

    Yep. They are saying 1/2" - 2" locally here in Atlanta. The Grocery stores are going to be wiped out. Forget about finding any milk or bread for a few days.

    I feel for the folks around Chicago, they have been nailed this winter with snow and very cold temps, I was listening to Chicago AM radio 780 and I couldn't help but think about the homeless in that city.

    Same here.. Can't get the local weather to obligate to a forecast.. Guess it's because we don't get this very often.. The WC says it's going to kick off Tuesday morning around 6am and not let up until early Wednesday morning.. We're not equipped over here for this crap.... And people over here get real stupid when this stuff hits.. Central Dispatch better look real close at this area when they make their call...

    When I was coming over there, I always wanted to put a camera down at the 285/85S split during an ice storm.. I promise you, I could make money off of it...

    Charlotte is a mess too. People were getting stuck on inclines to overpasses because they were going so slow, and lost their momentum.
    Every intersection on my way home last night there was a wreck, people were takin off as soon as light turned green and getting T-boned by people sliding through. It was crazy!!

    I grabbed a dolly in Owensboro last night without my gloves and my fingers fell off.

    I love how they want to blame government officials in Georgia for suck a mess,,, so we need to depend on government to tell us to stay home and tell us what the weather is going to be,,,its a wonder why some people find themselves in such a mess. I look at the weather on my phone, its called radar...daa, I
    dont need no stinking government to tell me what to do in a bad weather situation..
