Interwebs say 0.3 inches but I can measure like 3.5 inches in the parking lot... yeeweee!
Imma make a snowman
Yeah, you have to have the right consistency of snow, I know that, but I don't know what it is. I think the snow we got may have been to dry. Maybe tomorrow it will be a little less flaky.
No Canadians around when you need them.
After 5 hours of shoveling snow to get my car up the hill, I can say: "screw the snowman, and screw the snow!".
Somebody else made one this morning. I'm gonna take a picture and say I did it.
My hands feel like there's a 20lbs weight attached to each one.
NOAA, Little Rock. One thing I noticed when I arrived here was that Arkansas TV takes their weather very seriously. Otherwise how will you know when to stock up on beer, and park your car in a strategic spot?
I ended up walking to the library with my winter walking pole that has a screw embedded in the bottom for smashing ice on the street and is great when walking on frozen streets and sidewalks. The library was closed so I walked a couple of miles to the Kroger and then loaded up with a few days of food and headed home.
Looks like is going to be 13 hours of non stop snowing, starting tonight at 11 PM. I have an ice scrapper and a regular metal shovel. I might go to the store (while I can) and get a proper snow shovel... and beer. I wonder where could I find one cheaper, Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, or just Walmart?
I'm guessing that Fuller & Sons would be closer to you. They have a downtown location on Main St. Lowes is out in North Little Rock. Home Depot and Walmart are out in west Little Rock. There are a couple of Ace hardware stores near you, one on Main, one on Cantrell.
Channel 11 said abandoned cars will get towed. The city wont charge for storage, but nothing is said about the tow truck drivers which, being independent business, I bet are gonna have a ball and will need to get paid. So, what I picture is this:
1) People get caught in the snow and have to abandon car.
2) City crew clears road, with private tow trucks right behind them.
3) Cars get towed.
idk, lets see.
Yup, $220 is the fee, even without the city charging for "storage". Stories about last week are already starting to pop up, where drivers say the left vehicles *out* of the road, yet city says they were obstructing traffic...
I call shenanigans. What party is Mark Stodola from?
City council meeting was tonight. You could have gone and given them all a piece of your mind. Looks like the council meets biweekly. It's worth your while to attend one if only to see what happens.
This thread is a hoot. Feel free to laugh at...er..with me when I'm melting in late July.
Did you get a chance to try out that new snow shovel?
With the sleet, even going out right after the storm, my dust pan was no match for the sleet. it had already frozen to the concrete. I could remove a layer, but not enough to make things safe. It's hard enough that walking on it doesn't leave footprints.
