Have heard the Atlanta area got 3-5" and I know some offices are closed...I'm sure schools are too.

"Strawberry Pop-Tarts increase in sales, like seven times their normal sales rate, ahead of a hurricane. And the pre-hurricane top-selling item was beer," Linda M. Dillman, former chief information officer for Walmart, told the Times.

not that much in most of the areas i'm in...maybe 3-4" of snow cover, but it's been a pretty miserable few inches.

Man, I'm in the same boat. Starts up and as soon as I take it out of clutch, nothing. I may mess with it a bit more tonight if were really due 9 more.

My wife got me an electric snow thrower last year (or the year before maybe?) for xmas and it's wonderful. We got like 5 inches down in Bloomington on Monday night...we were supposed to get another 2-4 last night but it missed us and we didn't get anything. With what the plow dumped at the end of the driveway, it would've been a real workout to clear if I didn't have the snow thrower.

I got mine Christmas 2015 so this is only my 3rd winter with it. Last year was so mild I think I used it once. I will mess with it tonight. It blows snow fine then it doesn't. Then it does and so on. It isn't a wet snow either so it isn't getting clogged

and when it's 75 and sunny compared to what it is here, you can bet your ass i'm looking for the most outsidiest ways to walk possible.

Sounds like there's air in the fuel line. There's probably a video on youtube that can tell you how to fix that problem.

Oh I know. I probably walk 3 miles per day when I go there. Did you play any of the Venetian deep stack tournaments? Those are my favorites.

i didn't...i actually stayed there, but played a lot less poker than usual on this trip because we had a big group. i also usually stick to the cash tables.
did some sports betting/watching, a concert, and a lot of drinking. a lot more touristy stuff than i usually do when i'm there because we had a few friends who had never been.

I've been to Vegas three times and got lucky with very nice weather 2 of the 3 times (and I've never been in the winter). I somehow got a weekend of 80ish degree weather in June on one visit

Nothing wrong with visiting there, however why would anyone want to move there?
