  •  When we first moved up here (3+ / 0-)

    there were only three plows for the county.  Only a main road got attention and some that I called main roads were not.  There was a ten foot high drift one year on the road leading out of our nearby town.  

    We would get plowed lane...and it would blow right back in.  When I found out I was going to have a January baby, I freaked out. :)

    He had to stay in the hospital 45 miles away for jaundice and we brought him home during a storm that blocked the corner just after we plowed our way through the drift.  Fun!

    There are more plows now, thank goodness, but they can't do much when the winds blow.

    My daughter was told that her college never closed down in the winter and then that first year, it did. :)

      and from what Mom said, I was born (caesarian) during or just before a blizzard.

      Well.  This part of PA doesn't get blizzards...but the locals think they do if it's a decent snowstorm.  (Minnesota would laugh at what the locals here call a blizzard.)

      To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken
