Snow, freezing rain and now my garage is flooded??

The water ran under both doors and is ankle deep in the middle of the floor? What better excuse NOT to go out and warm up the place?? I would have never known but my daughters car needed oil and my wife got into my stash. I think I will go down to the club and throw down a few and watch the TV for a while!! Beside's people, whats a guy to do?? I just got off work and want to relax, not go play in the water in the garage!

I'm with Steve, I'd love to commiserate, but this morning the temp is -35 C and the windchill is -50 C. According to the weather people this is supposed to continue for three more days....
While down in Ohio.....

Chickie.

no thaw talk, please

Ok folks, here's the deal. Its -41 in Regina, -55 with the windchill. Records are broken going back to 1935. All I ask is that no one makes a post about how warm it is where they live and how nice of a drive they just had in their rod. At least till Friday. I cant deal with flowing water right now. I threw a cup of hot water in the air and it was frozen by the time it hit the ground.
Please humor me (at least for now). And I think I have Chickie on my side too!!

Steve
Here's proof. Its foggy because of the ice crystals in the air.

I will not say how warm it is here as it is right now 9 degrees outside and the high will be 20. but compared to you guys we are having a heat wave.

Tazz, hope you did not have any damage.

We finally got some snow and ice. It's been jumping from the 30's to the high 40's maybe 50's the past couple weeks. Just this weekend, we got dumped and the whole city is scared to drive anywhere. Bread and milk isles are bone dry. We have 20 salt trucks, but only enough salt to get the highways down here, so unless you live right off I-77, and you don't know how to drive in the snow or ice, you're not going anywhere till it melts.

Schools have been closed for 3 days now. Today is my first day into work this week. (wed) I love how southerners freak out when they see snow. I'm originally from Akron, I'm used to it.
