    It was more of the fact that the roads in his neighborhood were way too snowpacked and icy, and impossible to get through without a 4wd truck, as the streets are really narrow, and if you even start to slide, you'd have run into a car parked along the street(it's one of those neighborhoods with practically 1 lane roads and houses smashed next to eachother). My dad ended up picking me up in his Avalanche, so I'm home now. =) The main roads weren't that bad really, however, today it's a different story, not much snow, but enough to create dangerous roads. Just waiting for the winds to pick up to 40-50mph as predicted for the rest of today, creating white out and blizzard conditions.

    I'm curious, how cold is it where everyone is right now?
    Here it's -8 F without counting the 50mph winds, with the wind it feels like -24 F. Haven't felt this cold since '98.

    Wow, not quite that cold here. +12 F with a wind chill of -4 (winds about 20 mph). This is the longest stretch of consecutive cold days we have had here in years. I'm going to have to get me some chaps for riding this winter.

    Here is the forcast for tomorrow.

    Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 20s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph shifting to the north around 5 mph in the afternoon. Lowest wind chill readings 6 below to 16 below zero in the morning.

    Ahaha, I know that feeling. Although I'm no longer in school, monday was a 2 hour delay, then today was a snow day, and tomorrow is already declared a 2 hour delay, and if the cold keeps up more than likely will become another snow day. My dad works for a local school district so I get the inside story. But what is horrible right now is that one of the districts(the one most my friends go to) has already used up its 4 built in snow days and is now going to have to go longer at the end of the year, due to the fact that today was an uncounted for snow day. >.< I feel sorry for the seniors.
