Just found out that I own the Mighty Grail!!  I have about 700 out of 1600 DVDs that I haven't seen yet.  Hopefully I can dig it out this weekend.   8)    -  OCD sucks ass  :-\

P.S. - it's still cold

It's been raining on and off locally here in So Cal for the last 3 days.  It's been nice to get all this weather since we definitely need the soaking.  There are some more storms coming through, so hopefully, this will help out the drought (at least a little).

We're gonna be up near 60 a day this week!  Finally all that ice that was under all that snow is now melting, but it's taken a long time.  This though means we're likely to see flooding on the rivers here, but fortunately the lock/dam system works fairly well to protect that.  The Mon Warf will flood downtown though and it's always fun to watch the people who didn't heed warnings and park down there.  I watched a BMW bob up and down as its alarm went off one year on St. Patrick's Day.  That was funny.

It's in the 40's again today, pretty nice out, and so that's nice...  50's and more later in the week.  It's all gonna snap back by week's end supposedly.

Got that right.  We've got the same weather as you guys and it's hovering right around freezing.  So the roads are an absolute stinking mess and this is the point where I can't make fun of people in Texas cuz people here, who should know better, are even more stupid and not paying attention.  It's like driving on a hockey rink today (probably worse because of the rain on top of the ice) and people here are stoopid.  A couple of highways are closed and most are listed as "Travel Not Advised".  Duh. 

I hate the cold as much as anyone, but when it's -40 outside the roads are actually kind of sticky and traction is great.  Right around freezing is when it's bad.  If this rain gets rid of the snow and we get an early spring, great, but we'll probably just get more snow anyway.

I agree totally Brent...  It's the times the weather is dipping down low at points in the day and everything freezes, but maybe it eases up a little later and you get rain, that really suck.  We had so much ice underneath the snow that it made work a pain (add in that it's allllllll hillsides here).  Any time you stopped you were spinning to get back going again.

It's horrid on those days though...  not to mention only the main roads are ever totally clear then with the salt prices/shortages.  Blah.

It sucks, but right now our ice is almost all gone so we're ok.  It'll just come back I'm sure once we get a big snow, but at least that thick 4 inches of ice is gone.  That **** under the last snow was really the worst.  I just hope we don't get another ice storm to coat things before a snow...  It'd be nice to avoid that the rest of winter.

Funny!  Although I figured that Californians "disappear" way before -40 F.
