You know what? Since my husband, Snow-in-Texas, joined this site we have had some record breaking snow here!!! He just joined this site with that name for "wishful thinking".
A) I am sooo jeolous but happy for you guys at the same time!
B) Have your hubby pray to the snow gods to send us some in South Georgia!!

Well I can guarantee that it will be cold for it here next year. The good thing is that most of downtown Indy is connected by sky walks so the fans won't even have to go outside. We also have 80 snow plows in Indianapolis and another 80 trash trucks that can be outfitted with plows if needed. The city has also already set up contracts with private plows if it gets bad during super bowl week. If you do want to venture outside the city is planning on putting giant fire pits on the streets around the convention center and stadium to keep everyone warm. Of course there might not even be a super bowl next year so all of this planning could be for nothing.

I think if we counted the ammount of snow days per poster from now back to christmas, and gave ourselves a holiday of the ammount of days we counted, we would have had a rather relaxing holiday! Almost like Mr C :P

thanks guys!
I was turned down at the one place I was sure I would get as I had a letter from them saying they would hire me when I was done my course. But they tell me they no longer hire new drivers plus they do not have enough work right now.

Now I am going to have to wait until the weekend is done before I can hand out more resumes.

You actually have to find the point at which the water enters the house from the street- in orther wordfs- somewhere on the foundation- probably near the kitchen sink- outside- place a small space heater where the pipe most lijkely comes in and you will have water in 10 minutes...
