    Probably better than today...I know this won't come as a shock, but IAH, CLT, and ATL suuuuuuck at deicing.

    All of my hubs will be getting snow. Hopefully, I took enough down in advance. Definitely need the A game tomorrow.

    I feel bad for the people working one of our code shares, as mainline thinks they can handle a full schedule...good chance some f-bombs get dropped on that side of the room.

    We let a smug acquaintance of ours do this in Mankato back in college. This south Texan constantly griped about how dumb Minnesota was. When winter hit he thought it was absolutely ridiculous that we scraped off our windshields. He told us that melting it with hot water would be quicker.

    Us, being good sports, told him it was useless because that water would also freeze making the view even more difficult, much less even harder to scrape off.

    Obviously we were baiting him. We all shared a look towards each other that said "Holy crap, we might see something awesome, no one screw this up."

    He took the bait. Boiled up a monstrous pot of water. We cleared the dorm hallways for him so he could get out to his vehicle as fast as possible.

    Spider web cracks covered 100% of his windshield. Needed rides for weeks, which we refused. Didn't have glass coverage. Flawless victory.

    Minnesota nice is a myth.

    3-4" on the grass. 0" on the roads, but from police reports they must be icy or the bad weather zombies came out because there were alot of accidents.

    Climate change is a hoax though, nothing to see here.

    Snowing again here in MPLS. Not supposed to amount to much, though.

    We got a little more than a dusting around here, but the roads are still warm, which means they're all nice and greasy around here now. It took me 90 minutes to drive into the office today. I expected a longer drive.

    Is it against yours or the local religion to eat at KFC?
