Don't worry guys, I'll get gas for the snow blower tonight. That'll ensure the storm is a bust.


Warpedme t1_ja9t17n wrote

I just helped my neighbor fix his snowblower and it's now working perfectly. We're getting flurries at best.

Don't piss me off though, I can turn this fucker into a blizzard by simply putting away my shovels.


Artemisglory t1_jaa1hik wrote

It's really all my fault. I bought my very first snow blower at the end of the season last year. It's still in it's packaging 😩


Ambartenen t1_jaa6v7r wrote

I sold mine for 1/2 waht I paid for it 6 days ago :(


Artemisglory t1_jaa7kws wrote

Ohh nooo!!! I guess you balance out the situation and we might get a coating then lol


mikel124 t1_jaa2upi wrote

Lol. I’m sorta in the same boat, mine at least is out of the box.


Artemisglory t1_jaa35ao wrote

Ah so you're more prepared than I am. That definitely means a bust then 😒

Fresh fallen snow for about 30 minutes: 👍

The next three weeks of brown and black frozen sludge everywhere: 👎

This time of year? It will all melt on Thursday when it’s 55, just in time for the 5-8 inches Friday night.

Are they legalizing that too?


EscapeFromTexas t1_ja9otcx wrote

yes but it's going to go by the name "bepsi" to protect the kids, sold in 3 stores statewide, and be basically made of cornstarch.


Bruins125 t1_ja9cmtc wrote

I'm hoping it somehow stays cold for 2 weeks to kill off the ticks, so bring on the snow


LazyUpvote88 t1_ja9tuuy wrote

Are you saying that if it’s below freezing for 2 consecutive weeks the ticks die? Is that true?


Bruins125 t1_ja9urnz wrote

Unfortunately I was wrong with my assumption. However, temperature fluctuation can kill ticks so bring on the 50 degree days afterwards followed by another arctic blast.


LazyUpvote88 t1_ja9y6xo wrote

Anecdotally they seem to stay away when it’s cold outside.


MASSIVEGRUNDEL t1_jaaky77 wrote

That cold snap we had last February seemed to do a number on the ticks this past year


DaWeedMan12 t1_ja9jjmy wrote

Yo, yo, yo, what up my snow-loving homies? It's ya boy DaWeedMan12 in the hizzouse, reporting from the snowmageddon that's about to hit our ends! Now let me tell you, I am beyond excited for this snow. Now, I know what you're thinking, "DaWeedMan12, why you so excited for this snow? It's just gonna make everything cold and wet." But listen up, fam, there's more to snow than just frozen water droplets. Not only is it a great excuse to bust out my sick snowboarding skills, but it's also a great way to practice my shoveling technique for when I become a pro gardener. Plus, snow is just so white and pure, like me after a fresh waxing.

First of all, snow is like the world's biggest blanket, covering everything up and making it all cozy. And secondly, it's like nature's own ice cream, you can scoop it up and eat it whenever you want. Plus, it's white, so it's gotta be good for your teeth, innit?

But here's the thing, I heard that some of da CT residents is trying to control the snow, man! They wanna make it illegal to play in it, to touch it, to even look at it! And you know why? It's because they're scared of us, the snow-loving rebels, the ones who refuse to conform to their rules and regulations. But we won't let them silence us, we will fight for our right to snowball fights and snow angels! Who's with me?!

So don't be a hater, get out there and enjoy the snow like it's your own personal winter wonderland. And if anyone tries to tell you otherwise, just hit them with a snowball and tell them DaWeedMan12 sent you.

Meh. I just wish I wasn't dealing with a headcold. Clearing snow while sick suuuuucks.


rp3821 t1_jaa8zv6 wrote

Have you considered drinking honey ginger lemon tea? Always helps me bounce back from the cold.


pittiedaddy t1_jaaa7ya wrote

I usually do, but unfortunately forgot to get lemon and honey. I have some ginger turmeric tea that's really good though. 👍


rp3821 t1_jaaamzz wrote

Snow ain't falling yet, I'd high tail it to the store! The investment today will make tomorrow... more tolerable. Ginger turmeric tea hits the spot though, too. Hope you feel better!


yankeeinparadise t1_jaaikc9 wrote

From Trader Joe's? That's my daily cup if so!


pittiedaddy t1_jaaj7ab wrote

That's the one!


yankeeinparadise t1_jaajfk9 wrote

I add a bag of English breakfast because the ginger turmeric is decaf. I refill my mug about 8 times, it's mainly hot water by the end of the day. Quite comforting though!


TankGirlwrx t1_jaaw970 wrote

This is my go-to and so far has knocked anything out as soon as I felt symptoms. Ginger juice in hot water (rather than powdered ginger in a tea bag) plus honey and lemon if I have it. Ginger is magic I swear

Of all days to have a colonoscopy scheduled, it had to be tomorrow. FML.

Well. I love snow. But I have to drive to and from work in it so I’m not as excited. But my company really cares about my safety, they told me in an email today.


Repulsive_Town6916 t1_jaa9top wrote

I'm lucky my job goes with whatever the local schools district go. So we are closed and no work from home.


dreemurthememer t1_jaawfz7 wrote

My job doesn’t necessarily ”close” during inclement weather (unless it’s really bad, I assume), but they’ve got no problem with me taking PTO on snowy days so I’m gonna take as much advantage of that as I can.

Man I am so glad to be out of foodservice.

My wife and I work for the same place, she's been there longer. I was told to stay home. She was told to come in. Tf?

Back before work realized everyone can work remotely, yes because we'd get a day off.

Now, nope.


Dark-_-Memer OP t1_ja9aeyu wrote

Better get them shovels ready!


LoveIsLove75 t1_ja9djcx wrote

Nope. Would rather not deal with shoveling tomorrow morning.


phunky_1 t1_jaa14x6 wrote

Snow is not as exciting with telework.

Between cellular hotspots and having a generator there is no excuse to not work due to a storm anymore.

It would be more exciting for it to be a real snow day.

Now I just get to work all day with loud kids in the background then spend the whole evening clearing the driveway and walks.


DarthArtero t1_ja9lzx7 wrote

We’ll see. Everyone I work with is acting like it’s gonna be a blow out blizzard

Mixed feelings. I have been teased too much with nice temps and sunny days.

Yeah, this is a pass for me. Was hoping we might miraculously have a winter without any notable storms. Not looking forward to shoveling what will likely be very wet heavy snow.
