Damn women drivers!

Woman driverThis morning on the Interstate, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a brand new car doing 65 mph with her face up next to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner.

I looked away for a couple seconds… to continue shaving and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup. As a man, I don’t scare easily. But she scared me so much; I dropped my electric shaver which knocked the donut out of my other hand. In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my cell phone away from my ear which fell into the coffee which I dropped, and burned my legs,  ruined the damn phone, soaked my trousers, and disconnected an Important call.

Damn women drivers.! 

Snowstorm may rival one of 29 years ago today

It was 29 years ago to the day that the St. Louis area was hit with a snowstorm that left 13.9″ of snow in St. Louis (at the airport) and some areas with more than two feet.  Now a rival is headed this way.

The rest of the story

I had 22 inches of snow at my house.  It took us a week before we could get in or out of my driveway.

Open Mic Sunday


We’re getting ready for a big storm that’s supposed to come through the midwest starting tomorrow and last through Wednesday.  We’re expecting up to a half inch of ice and anywhere from 6 to 12 inches of snow and sleet on top of that.   The snow isn’t so bad but the ice is what worries me.  I just hope we don’t have massive power outages as are common with heavy ice and snow.

Anyway, what’s going on with you?
