    Nothing of note to report, just wanted to see what everyone is up to. The posts on Detroit are spooky reading to say the least. It sounds like Gary, IN to the west of where I'm at (by enought miles that I feel safe) except on a larger scale.

    Steve, what's up with your message. It sounds cryptic and a bit ominous.

    I drove a new F-250 with a gas motor to plow the Detroit residential streets again. With just 500 miles on the Ford something went out in the steering column while I was plowing. It first stated by honking the horn while I was turning, then the horn just stayed on for about ten minutes until it burned out. Next the Air bag light came on, finally the DIC started switching to French, Spanish, F to C and resetting the olm every 3 seconds. What a crappy failure at 500 miles

    Some facts about Detroit: Detroit has over 1,800 miles of residential streets to plow. These streets are plowed anytime there is 6" or more of snowfall. The 1800 miles is divided between 4 contractors. The Contractors have 24 hours to complete the sectors given to them. The contractors have to plow one 10' strip down the center of each road. Each time the residential streets are cleared it costs the city $400,000! Contractors have been called in to plow 3 times this year. During a declared "snow emergency" all cars are supposed to be moved off of the roads. It does not happen so plowing becomes very interesting. Many people think that the road should be plowed before they move their cars.

    I was driving home when it started. Only seen seven people stuck by city airport lol. I would have stopped, but it was 11pm when I got out, so not a chance. On my way in yesterday at 11pm, there were 3 cars stuck in a water main break. Not exactly the best place to be stuck. It was really bad, about 6 inches of ice/slush mixture so I wasnt surprised they got stuck.

    Also went skiing yesterday, had the entire hill to myself!!! Also pushed two people out on the same street yesterday, a 350z with snow tire and a new Chevy Equinox.

    On a negative note, my serpentine belt just snapped

    About the same type of things happening here in NW IN. Day before yesterday the major interstates as well as major state highways in my area were closed. Two interstates opened yesterday morning but were closed again by the afternoon. A lousy day to be snowblowing my drive way, but I've done it several days in a row to keep the "global warming" on it to a minimum and in case we had get out.
