Noted While Driving To Work

  • Snowplows are more effective when you’re behind them
  • It’ s always a good idea to hire a plow service
  • Front wheel drive cars spin their front wheels, rear wheel drive cars spin their back wheels
  • Ragtop Miatas are cute, but not meant for Cleveland winters
  • Panel trucks can slide sideways
  • You see an awful lot when traffic is backed up
  • I’m glad I put gas in the car yesterday
  • I could have walked to work faster than I drove


  1. Snowplows are more effective when they’re actually used by the city to plow out the streets.

    You cannot de-ice a plane effectively if you only have one working de-icing machine and there is freezing rain (found out before the Jet Blue debacle when stranded on the tarmac in North Carolina).

    My deepest sympathies for your drive. I made it out of the driveway, then had to be pushed back in.

  2. try living in the DC area. 😉

    everyone panics and most things are canceled.

    (Personally, I am unimpressed as I learned how to drive in Maine and upstate New York. A dusting of snow does not bother me.)

  3. You saw a snowplow? I drove 30 miles to work in Cleveland and the only plow I saw, besides the one on my tractor while plowing my driveway, was the one on our Village pickup, plowing the streets here in LaGrange.

    And no plow had visited the parking lot at work either. Not until everyone was parked and the lot was full did one show up. Nice.

    As for the rest of your points; all well made.

  4. That one passed us by (we only got 3 inches) and hammered y’all to the east of us. I was watching the news and having flashbacks to my Detroit childhood.

  5. Heh, all that snow is passing over Missouri. ‘Course the southern parts always get ice storms. A bunch in the boot-heel are freezing and starving and dyin’ right ‘n left according to the MSM.

    Strange that my relatives on the Illinois side aren’t.
