That doesn't mean we're not invincible!

I arrived at this morning's destination early, but I was "that guy" along the way since I was in a 2wd car today. :tonka: I had issues moving forward every time I stopped at a light and nearly got stuck in an unplowed Michigan left in Bloomfield Hills on Woodward. :stan3:

*shrug* I made it to work in normal time. Only had 2, maybe 3" of snow up in Lake Orion/Oxford. Roads were cleared all the way.

I was suprised to see people got so much to the south..

I was real depressed. I am south of Detroit and work in Detroit. Snow was half way up to my knee on the way out to the truck.

Left at the same time and got into work at the same time. Damn 4x4!!!!

I hit the scan button on the radio this morning, and landed on 89x (not entirely unusual, but anyway...) they were ripping on Chuck the Freak cause he couldn't make it in with his Caddy - apparently the back roads were all snowed in...

I drove all back roads from Fenton, through Holly Twp, Rose Twp, Highland Twp, Commerce Twp, etc. down to Walnut Lake & Orchard Lake. Narry an issue except when I pulled out back on to Commerce Road after gassing up this morning, and had rooster tails flying as I got back up to speed.

oh, my car was dragging the belly the entire way in due to its low ride height...

Seems like tons of people came in late today for some reason at my work.

I was running late for class though since my boss is a dickhole x100, then I found out it was canceled again for some mysterious reason. So I came home and slept.

Nothing was weather related though.

No problems for me this morning because:

A. I don't have a start time. Time clocks are for slaves....and
B. I'm in Kansas city- no snow.
