She lives 5 minutes away from work but with the roads still littered with snow and the plows unable to meander around there for some reason, it was about a 2 hr. drive back home. On top of that, she had to take a shovel and dig out the snow just to open the front door. She vented about that especially now that her son is working in San Francisco (he moved there a few months back) and is eagerly awaiting the day to move to California in the not-so-distant future.Half Massed wrote:Well, my college is in Southern California, so I don't have to worry or think about any snow.
Well, seeing how we're mired in a bit of a drought, it's been a downer for snow this year up in the local mountains, especially when weather forecasters were predicting an El Nino...and we were only 2 years removed from one of the rainiest seasons in L.A.
i guess it might depend on where you live in chicago, because this storm was bad, but definetly not an all-time event. the thing is we had 35 mph winds today that caused some snow drift problems. i just got down snowblowing and shoveling at 12:30 a.m. my neighbors hate me.
I guess she was just exaggerating. She lives in Oaklawn.

And speaking of unemployment, you must either have some sort of major personality disorder not to get a job, or you can't get a job at your skill level for whatever reason. Either way, two days at home and I'm bored stiff.

ya think? I don't consider myself a liberal but this is right up the scientific alley. There sure is something to this climate change/global warming in that it causes crazy weather patterns.
