if anybody doesn't know what that is, google "grader" to get an idea of how much snow he has

That doesn't look too bad, IMO.

I think we had slightly more over here until it began raining the other day. I'm surprised I haven't slipped on the ice, though.

Yeah, it's a bit deceiving. The side piles were equal to my side mirrors on my car and it was just wide enough to drive through. The major problems were that it is very open and we get a fair amount of wind so it just fills in with drifts and those side berms were fairly hard and compacted so it took that grader to move them (and he had to work at it).

They use similar drilling machines like when they dig tunnels, as far as I know. Never seen crazy snow tunnels like that myself but I know some people from southern Norway who get crazy amounts of snow each year. When the winter is over and the roads are open to traffic again it must be crazy awesome to drive through that.

Holy Moly, that gotta be at least 30 feet of snow. Then again, I've heard that amounts of snow like those aren't uncommon in Northern Japan.

I haven't shoveled my driveway yet this winter. Instead I just went and bought a new SUV. My driveway is pretty gnarly looking. Ok, so I had to shovel a little of the end out because the darn city plows tried to block me in.

it was only a matter of time

http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/22 ... owing-Game

Rudy Fernandez was punched in the face by a Lithuanian fan following Real Madrid's 105-104 win over Zalgiris Kaunas in Euroleague play on Thursday.

Fernandez was bloodied by the punch and went straight to the airport. Real Madrid had a security guard with the team but he reportedly did not react fast enough to prevent the assault.


you're not supposed to punch a man wearing glasses though

Certainly no surprise. If Rudy Fernandez was in my presence, I think that I would deck him by reflex.
