• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

You call 7" of snow a big deal?

Come to Detroit, we'll show you some snow :)

When I left for drill this morning at 430 or 5 or so I estimated between 4 and 5 inches of snow on the ground. It was still coming down really hard so i wouldn't be surprised if there was 6+ inches when all was said and done. It was already melting when I got back so I wasn't able to see how much actually fell.

First off, I could have swore that this was the Kentucky forum, not Michigan.

And yes, for some of us down here (where it doesn't snow 128 days a year), 7 inches is a big deal because people forget how to drive once the white stuff shows up.

We had about 12" in southern Jefferson County and it was significant. Got me to remembering how an 11" snow got me shut-in a few years back when I was visiting my mother. She lives in northern Minnesota and they see snow from time to time too.

I guess it's just kinda relative to what you are used to seeing on a regular basis, or when you can expect it.

It is all relative. Bowling Green got 5 and it shut the city down. But with only 5 to 8 snow plows for a town of 38 square miles, any snow is always a problem.

I was up all night working. Surprisingly we were busy, but also had plenty of time to check on empty parking lots ;)

2.5 inches in Morganfield, In Henderson where I work, we had the same with drifts of over 36" in a few places. Real fun driving home at 11:00 PM with the wind blowing like that. :roll:
