    What, exactly, are spit balls, and how are they used? Just wondering. See post #1
    As for here, in my neck of the woods, as of 3 pm, 12 inches average, more importantly 29 inches at the bottom of my driveway gifted to me by the snowplow, and drifts ranging from 18-36". Still snowing now and not showing any signs of letting up for another 7 hrs, they say.

    yes, Jim, those I am familiar with. Got detention in 8th grade for misuse of them during math class. I should have taken my case to a higher court! The teacher, Mr Torres, didn't see me or my, well, partner in crime, dispensing them out the side window at unaware fellow junior highers. A teacher walking past our class saw us. He should have had no right to award us a detention, he didn't witness anything. Isn't that something like evidence not allowed in the trial? An unscheduled witness, so to speak? We had planned for every possibility........except that!

    We were out yesterday morning to breakfast albeit all county offices and about everything else was closed. Just as we left to come home it began to sleet enough that we had to clear the windshield. Today, even that restaurant was closed and I fixed my breakfast at home after which I took my meds and went back to bed also. Before I did, I looked out the window and can see about a 6" accumulation on top of the shed. Just a thought that there may be fewer DUIs, accidents and deaths on the roads locally as the county ABC stores were declared to be closed also yesterday and today. My wife is the manager of one of those ABC stores. Still, the prevailing outside temp here is in the twenties. Originally I'm from western PA and recall snows over my head ... but then I was a foot or two shorter. Between stints in law enforcement I drove from DC to the Pittsburgh PA area the night before John F. Kennedy was inaugurated. I had started at 4:00 PM and cleared the DC border just after midnight. After 16 more hours and several tanks of fuel I arrived, a total trip that then normally took only 6 hours and I have driven it in 5. I don't know of any outlet that now sells tire chains now, but I have mounted hundreds for others and too have driven with them.
