"Sup fams? Who got hit with that snow, though?"


          

We got like 2 inches over night...about to start back up, by noon and go all the way through the evening...6-9, projected. Came downstairs and fired up the computer for work, only to get an email that our mainframe is down...due to bad weather in Dallas. So, drinking some coffee and watching The Office marathon.

and naw...President's Day isn't one of our holidays. We supposed to get hit again, Wednesday into Thursday. I'm a little jelly, cuz if we were working from the office, we would have been closed. I'll take that trade of 1 or 2 snow days a year, to work from home.

with breaks in between.

I think we ended up with about a foot at our place. Sounds like it was 10 inches to 2 feet depending on your location within the region.

We've been getting increasingly worse snow storms every year for the last 4 or 5 years, and they almost always happen in early to mid February.

I don’t understand why your power grid can’t handle the snow. Is everyone’s home heated via electric heaters?

I love how all the conservative media and my conservative cousin like to talk shit about California when our grid goes down and blame it on the “liberal/socialist California agenda” as a reason why the power is out. However, they are silent when conservative Texas can’t keep the grid up during a winter storm.

Now, it’s like ‘yeah, but you regret voting for Biden now!’.

If not that, it’s like ‘mane! It got cold! Nice trick, Mother Nature! Our bad.’. Seems pretty lame regardless. I’m in texas but have had electricity so far. I know a gang of folks who lost theirs in the middle of the night and are still out.

The pics are ridiculous, especially some of the snow drifts. They're under a Level 3 snow emergency right now. https://www.weathersafety.ohio.gov/snowemergencyclassifications.aspx

Meanwhile, it was 80 degrees here yesterday but it's now dropped to 67.

(It's been a while since I lived there.)

Even so, they still got his hard. A Toledo news station reported that this was the 5th largest snowstorm on record for them, over 2 days.
