Not stuck, but I awoke this A in the M to find that everything (long driveway and some paths) that I'd cleared with the snow-blower and shovel, that had further cleared-up by melting away in the sun wherever I'd removed snow, was now filled-in and smoothly drifted over with a fresh blanket of purest, driven snow...

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

Well...I get a paid day off 'cuz of the bad snow storm(one of the perks)...so yeah, I'm stuck in my studio all day! :cool:

 

Of course...at some point...I have to go out and shovel that crap... :(

But I ain't goinn' anywhere until my looooooong driveway gets plowed.

Hmmmmmm...I may be still be stuck in the studio tomorrow too, depending on when the storm ends.

I ain't a stuck but I'm gonna be feeling the effects of cramming 3 weeks of fresh air and exercise into an hour and 1/2 of snow and sleet shoveling a couple of hours ago. Main roads around here are slushy to wet. But it's still raining and it's still gonna get cold tonight so I'm sure it's going be a mess tomorrow as well

with the Rock'N'Roll GirlFriend last week.

 

Unfortunately, we have to go back to the ice and snow. But for over a week now, it has been Paradise.

Hey you guys are lucky. Up here the sayingnis.."if you don;t like the weather hang around for 5 minutes and it'll change"""..

 

Funny tho, seems like when we're having snow and windstorms and minus temps you guys are having good weather. Our prob is it got warm and windy so lots of snow melted and created a sheet of ice everywhere. Then a light snow and its slick as a...well you know.

Still that way too but at least its warmed up to a balmy 10degF.

 

They just placed a camera at the top of Mt Redoubt to observe it if it erupts. That'll be a great video to see if she blows.

 

Here's a link to some pics of the volcano..

cold and light snow here...

 

Yes, I got stuck trying to get out of my driveway onto my street, due to the ice on the street next to the driveway. Next time I hear snowfall is coming, I'm laying down some rock salt on both the driveway and street.

 

don't use rock salt it will eat the concrete of your driveway spend the extra bucks and get ice melt...speaking from experience

all chucks children are out there playing his licks

I got about 6-8 inches of snow...but then there was another 2" of frozen ice/sleet on top...and then it rained for like 4 hours...

...so right now I'm figuring how to mount the ice skates on my truck so's I can skate up and out of my driveway. ;)

 

I'm going to have to dump a lot of salt & sand down before I'mn going anywhere...but hey, I don't mind being stuck at home.

Is Ice Melt something I can get at Lowe's or Home Depot too?

 

I'll just use my remaining rock salt on the street then.

My understanding is that they are ALL some type of "salt" compound....though some claim to do less damage than pure "rock salt"...which may be true(?)...but still, they are all chemicals/salts...that's what melts the snow/ice. Use them enough, and they will do damage.

 

Also...the price of the "boutique" ice melt compounds :) is often 3-4 times more than rock salt....which may not be an issue if you have a small area and only need it once in awhile.

But on long driveways, you will spend a fortune on that stuff!

 

I use the pure rock salt on my driveway (which is a looooong stone driveway)...but I have a few smaller bags of the finer stuff that I use on my steps...moslty 'cuz the rock salt is very crude, and a PITA to walk on.

When I bought my sack of rock salt at Lowe's, there were indeed other anti-ice treatment products next to the rock salt. It was like $5 for sack vs. the other stuff.

 

My driveway is pretty short and already has a couple of big cracks thanks to the neighbor's tree root. During World War II, somebody got the bright idea to plant a MAPLE tree close to the neighbor's house - and mine too - I was too ignorant to recognize the potential problem when I bought my house. My dad advised I poison the tree, but it didn't feel right.

 

Anyway, my ice problem tends to be where the driveway meets the street. Fortunately, the high today is in the 45F range. But I'm gonna sprinkle more salt in that area next time, because dad won't always be around to push my car.

Not up there, but a minor ice storm pretty much shut down the D/FW Metroplex (where I am) for most of the day.

 

Less than deadly, more than a nuisance.

SO what part of the Metroplex are you in?

Richardson (home)/ Addison (work) here.

Well, I had to come back eventually. Just finished shoveling 150 feet of walk and 30 feet of double driveway. Left 75-80 degree temps for this..... grrrrrr.... er... brrrr.....

We played a cple times at Posses place by the lake for the team ..More beer, cuter women and more bbq huh?

 

Remember what they said about Posses.."We don;t buy this beer we just rent it..." Ha!

This has been the worst winter ever. Couldn't make it into work on Wednesday. They didn't start plowing until 7AM and then they couldn't keep up. Then it rained for 5 hours. Then it froze. Now I have 6 inched of solid ice on everything. I went out and shoveled half my driveway in the rain so now I can at least use part of it.

 

Still have to get through February too!
