Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of  waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
To cause it to  rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;

I could use a little  snow! If its going to be this  cold out it could at least be pretty!


Author: Doreen Lawrence - Id: 5

We have had ice /  snow/ slush and expect more  snow. The way the roads are dealt with around here is to wait for it to melt. Not going to happen before tomorrow. Messy roads just refreeze and get even worse after a storm until completely melted and dry. This happens so seldom here that it is not worth the investment to have enough machines to handle secondary roads .... we just shut down.
