    I've always enjoyed bad weather to a certain degree. I'm not talking tornadoes or anything like that, but rough storms, ice storms, whatever, have always been kind of fun to me. The challenge of getting around or battening down the hatches at home is pretty cozy stuff.

    But my favorite bad weather story is from when I was a kid, maybe 9 or 10. My grandparents had a great little cabin, and I do mean little, in rural Minnesota right on a lake and we'd go visit on Christmas almost every year even if it meant us traveling from Florida to Minnesota. It was just the thing to do.

    So, that one year when I was a kid a huge ass blizzard came buzzing through and we got snowed in. And when I say snowed in, I mean the storm windows in the cabin looking out to the lake? Completely covered over with snow. The doors exiting the cabin? Snowed over.

    There was an attached garage with a high window and my grandfather opened that window up so we could tunnel out. We did and it was amazing. The snow seemed like it was 50 feet deep to my little kid imagination. It was one of the greatest times ever.

    You?

    Not really. I watched that Russel Crowe movie once. It was alright.

    I was in college in Ottawa during the infamous ice storm of '98 that hit quebec, ontario, and some of the American east coast. I've lived through a lot of winter storms but everything pales in comparison to that. the damage was absolutely catastrophic.......just inches of ice covering every surface.

    but I do have very good memories of that time.....school was closed for a long time, we all ate mushroom, smoked pot and drank while we were confined to our house. trying to go outside was a death sentence.

    You always struck me as someone who keeps his priorities straight.

    On a sidenote, the crowd here is full of a bunch of fucking maladjusted fuckfaces. There are people with beautiful stories. Stories about camp, or going hiking, or picnics by the lake and noodle salad.

    Just nobody here.

    I had a great time when Hurricane Charlie blew the roof off my house! It was a million laughs. Especially when we found out that the neighbor down the street died when a tree fell on him! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA..........

    Well when you're stuck in I45 and have no where to go because the streets look like the Venetian canals, you gotta kill some time.

    It was cold one day in January 1981. Grandpa was out shoveling the snow and died from a heart attack.

    It was a merciful day for your grandfather.

    So far he's missed out on over thirty years of you.

    I call that a win.
