    Mainly because you never know if what the weather guys are saying is what actually happens.  So, it's always better to have a bit of extras around during the winter, just in case, like not letting the gas tank get below half.  Ice storms are a whole nother ball game though.

    You've been here long enough to know what cold really means!!  A former neighbor was from the Denver area and a few years back we hit -26 and had the blizzard thing going.  The kid asked if it was the worst storm I had seen.... No, I've been through worse (-32 and stronger winds).

    Back in the day, it was expected that if you were going to be traveling that you'd call the people at the other end to let them know you were leaving and what route you were planning on taking.  This was so that if you didn't show up in a reasonable amount of time they'd know when to start to worry and try to get help for you.

    Yeah, last night was the first time I pulled out the winter coat.  It hasn't been cold enough for anything heavier than a jacket.
