Daily News Report...



February 15, 2007... Orange NJ..
So? What's the big deal? you are asking...
That's not much snow. (nope) This is your winter? (yup)
I know it doesn't look like much, and in the amount of snow it sure isn't. But what you are looking at is more dangerous then if it was snow... it's ice! And it's been so cold here, single digits and below, that even putting salt on it doesn't help... it stays frozen.
On today's news they showed a film clip from a police car that had pulled over to someone stuck on the road...what it showed would have given me a heart attack had I been in that stuck car! A Fed X double trailer truck was coming down the road in the opposite direction... the second trailer began to slide and went right into that car before bouncing back and then swinging back again farther down the road before the driver could get it to a stop..buy the time it stopped the double trailer truck looked in the shape of a "Z" Thankfully no one was hurt... but it is an example of what happens on the "nothing to speak of looking road" pictured above.
We are getting to 18 degrees today with a -2 degrees wind chill factor.. I don't think it's going to melt the roads yet! This is surely a case of: Less is More.
Did anyone hear about the passengers on a Jet Blue plane that went out to take off in this weather and sat there for 7 hours?!!! For this they got their money back and a "free flight" later to anywhere... well duh... need to give me more then that after sitting there for 7 hours before the flight gets canceled!!!! I might have choked someone by then lol.
'Till next time...

I am so over winter. Although this has been mild by Michigan standards, the cold snap of the last two weeks have more than made up for it. And the snow yesterday. Thank god today is the first day of spring..which for me means pitchers and catchers report for spring training.

I watched those news stories on Good Morning America. When I saw the video from the police officers point of view, I cringed. I am glad no one was hurt.

Ice Storms suck. I will never forget the one we had in 1991. No power!

We got 20 inches of snow, but I can't complain because one of our neighboring cites got over 100 inches. They would never let me. LOL

7 hours, that's horrific - I think I would have been well claustrophobic by then... have to just shake my head at your ice and snow, we are still in heat and drought down here. We see the terrible time you are having on our news programs.

Stewart: I am always ready for winter to be over right after New Years Eve! I love the change of seasons but winter is way tooooo long!

Charles:oh yes, I've read about that 100 inches of snow! I can't even imagine it even when I see pictures of it! They will have snow on the ground into June!

Della: Jet Blue would have to give me more then one free ticket that's for sure!! When I fly from here to CA it's a 6 hr flight and that's with things working right... I don't think I could do more then that!
