|wendyjo||Please God no 24" of snow on Thursday - I'm scheduled for open heart surgery that day and I don't want to have to put if off Well, actually I kinda do but that's besides the point - i can't!|

Northeast and Mid-Atlantic could be looking at more snow around Thursday this week. Early models show conditions similar to last years 24"+ event. We'll have to keep an eye on this one. No forecasters want to say anything about it yet. They've realized they don't have to actually make a prediction until the day before.
Last years December 22" snowstorm was on my birthday/bachelor party. My friends and I were running through center city Philly absolutely wasted trying to catch the last train to the suburbs. What a crazy night...
Im a little tired of snow since I deliver pizza for a living. It seems Ive worked in every storm this year. People who order pizza during a blizzard and don't tip should be blacklisted from ever ordering again.

|HypnoticAquatic||thats because its to watered down sounds like u were way over the % that is norm acceptable and thats the reaction. normally it will just overheat from zero circulation but damage can be done if its not corrected and still drivin. at the min drain half of the coolant and refill with just antifreeze and u should be fine that way the antifreeze will keep everything from going to a block of ice.|

Chicago doesn't usually get that much snow at one time, but the various weather patterns needed to cause this mess aligned perfectly and voila - 24" of snow in less than a day.

Now we knew about this storm in advance and LSD should have been closed but it wasn't and by then it was too late.
It was just a stupid move on the city's part.

Americans and their scare of snow... this is a monthly occurance for us Canadians.... today it was 32f .... i went to school in a long sleeved tshirt.
And at 32F, most of the city is praising how nice the weather is.

Since when have the masses really paid attention to warnings about the weather and heeded the advice?
Lots of people still work in the Loop. Unfortunately, if you live along the lakefront up north a good ways, LSD (er, Lake Shore Drive for those outside of Chicagoland) is really the only practical route to take for most drivers.

So I left RI to have nice weather while in college (then to go north for skiing, don't get me wrong I love snow) but it is in the THIRTIES this week, the fountains are freezing up. What is funny is barely anyone has winter jackets. I'm really glad I brought mine to ski in, never thought I'd wear it around campus. There were 25-35 mph winds gusting yesterday too.
Back in RI they got a mix of snow rain and ice. All of the snow melted and turned to slush then at night it all became frozen. Dangerous stuff, thats for sure.
