Yep, Just enough to line the pockets of the plow drivers while they drive around town destroying property working O. T.

Stack up traffic make us late to work and cause tree and house damage from the wight of the snow.

Seems like this is the Land of the living dead not there !

All my neighbors went to Florida this year for the first time. You can purchase a 3 bedroom 2 bath home with a pool and a 2 car garage for less than $300,000. Plus no state income tax. No pot holes . You can only find blizzards in diary queen .
