Boy, can I effectively kill a conversation!

Okay, so I didn't want or expect pity ("oh the poor poor girl has moved to a place where they get one single, solitary HALF A DAY of snow and she whines about it..." OR "stop bitching," etc.) but I also didn't expect to stop all conversation in this little forum of ours completely.

I don't know what everyone else's excuse is, but I've been very busy since this semester started. But I did appreciate your story!

I don't really have an excuse...I kept checking the site to see if anyone posted anything, though! I thought your description was great. I feel like that in the Midwest sometimes, too! All those crazy other drivers! I pasted your posting into an email from my parents...I'm sure they found it humorous.

It reminds me of the 1st snow Mark experienced in Arkansas. One inch and school's off and there are accidents everywhere!!

Yeah. . . well I can't read (that's my excuse).

No really, I've been "out of the office" off and on for the last couple-a-weeks. First I had to go to the great state of Kansas. Great Bend to be exact (we also swung through Wichita on the way back). It wasn't bad.

Then this tue-thur I was in Atlanta for the World Poultry Expo. Quite exciting. While there I met one of our company's outside salesmen who covers the N.E. states (down to N. Carolina). He lives in Pennsylvania, but was on a sales call to Raleigh-Durham area when the "storm" hit. He said it was very slick on the roads. Traffic was moving about 2 mph on the highway. One of the guys that was with him had to go to the bathroom so he just got out and ran into a nearby office building and did his business. By the time he was done the car had traveled only about 30 ft. down the road.


So anyway. That's that.


something you can use in Trivial Pursuit:
did you know that Iowa is the #1 egg-producing state?

Until later. . .

Robert-- LOL, literally. The mental picture of that guy running into the nearest building to use the bathroom is quite funny.

Your job sounds so exciting. I bet you just about couldn't stand it all when you got to Great Bend. My dad used to cover some banks in western Kansas when we lived in Hutchinson. There's nothing out there but tumbleweeds and oil wells...
