    I'm glad to see us getting some. But I had a fertilize job scheduled today. I know they are going to call this afternoon to see if I got it out :(

    I don't mind to work out in the snow. But I'm not so sure it's a good idea to do it now. They'll be disappointed though. What to do :confused:

    You can't control the weather. If it can't be done due to snow then forget it. Nothing you can do. If you can get up right now and do it quickly without damaging anything then go do it. Might as well collect the revenue off the job if possible.

    That's the funny thing about you southerners...1" of snow and it is chaos on the roads. Not that it is much better here in Philly as the Yuppies with their Four Wheel drive vehicles think they can conquer everything. The one thing they forget is that you can't stop on a dime.

    That's so much the case here too. Then you got them crazy rednecks in there jacked up pickup trucks out trying to have some fun.

    People get out here in vehicles that shouldn't be on the road. Others like you say, forget they can't stop on a dime. It's mountainous down here too and they don't know how to properly control there vehicles on slopes. They panic when they break traction. This is the cause of most of the wrecks.

    I used to live farther north from here and we used to get some considerable snowfall a few times a year. I have yet to have a wreck because of snow. If I do it probably will be some other dummy running over me.

    No your S-10 automatic 2x4 with no weight in the bed doesn't belong on a snowy road here.

    But on the otherhand, my family up in Jersey can get by OK like that with a little weight added. Snow is a lot easier to deal with on flat ground.

    The snow here is alot different than most places it is very wet in stead of dry like most people get! Hell I can drive 65 on that dry snow but if i would try that in the snow we get here I would end up on my top.

    I don't own a 4x4. But a manual tranny is a must in my book. I hope I don't have to explain that! I do ok in my 2x4 truck with a few blocks in back.
