Wow, I bet you're not used to seeing that everyday. :wallbanging:

One good thing is you're in Alabama and your ground is relatively warm, so with a little sun that will be but a bad memory and mud in a few days. Good luck and stay off the roads. I've heard that some southerners can barely drive during the summer with clear roads. :smilewink:   :poke:

Its a shame that you don't have a plow for your CC. Alittle seat time plowing is fun. After 40 hours so far this year, it isn't fun anymore. Good Luck, Rick

I got word that Ft. Payne where my company is based has 14" of snow.  I also got word that a grand total of one person came in to work today and he is there because he drives the big 4wd company truck AND he spent most of his life in Pennsylvania.  Last time I was down there, I noticed that just about everyone who works there drives a 4wd so, needless to say, I'm a bit baffled.  Of course, going is only one aspect of driving in snow.  Stopping and turning are quite another story.  To put it in perspective for our southern friends, when we wake up  to 14" of snow up north, the big debate is whether or not we need to wear a sweater when we go out to sweep the walk.

You can go thru Birmingham and spit out the window and they go to wrecking behind you.

A lot of the insurance companies (in Alabama) will not pay if you wreck and the roads has been closed by DOT.

@David Brown, you couldn't have said it any better!
I'm really looking forward to it warming up to 30. It's been in the negatives for the past few weeks. 20 is feeling like a heat wave today.
