    9 inches here in northern Columbus....I will admit to being a hypocrite when it comes to wall to wall snow coverage---I complain about it but still will listen to and watch it...

    Re: Cincinnati reaction to snow

    Okay, I know that I started this thread about the area's tendency to overreact to snow, but the roads today are awful. I live in Butler County and it doesn't look like the roads have been treated at all. I went to drop my kid off at the in-laws' and almost slid into a car that had previously slid off the road.

    Yet, not even a level one snow emergency. My work is in Mason, and the snow emergency line says they are open. So if I don't make it in, I get in trouble. Argh!

    I'd be much more willing to head out to work again if they would cover any car damage or medical expenses that may result from a wreck. It's ridiculous to have people driving in this weather, at least until the roads are plowed.

    I work three blocks from my house, but need my car for heading to the post office and bank, etc. I cleaned my car and headed down to the office, but decided to skip the P.O. today, so drove the car back up the hill. It was really hard once I got near the top. Glad to have it parked for the day.

    http://i50.tinypic.com/11ht8y9.jpg In Columbus, but we're getting a good deal of snow. Once the hydrant disappears, I'll know I'm pretty much screwed lol

    Shoveled the driveway and it was all back to white by the time I had finished.

    If you are over 45, some professor says you shouldn't shovel snow.

    No, my teenager would sponsor a study that says if you are over 45 you should shovel snow. My teenager seems to think melting is a fine option for snow removal, until he wants to be driven somewhere.

    FYI--we are expecting another foot in the D.C. area later today and tommorow. My flight to Vegas on Thursday has already been cancelled. Aside from no baseball, I have another very good reason for hating winter.

    Re: Cincinnati reaction to snow

    About a month ago, I planned three days of meetings that would start tomorrow.... in New York City.

    Lucky me.

    As they are now projecting 12-18" by tomorrow evening, Delta cancelled my direct flight into LGA a full 24 hours prior to the scheduled departure.

    Instead, they now have me routed with one stop through Detroit--which is expecting a mere 7-10" tonight. Best case scenario, I arrive in the city about 8 hours later than planned.

    I am not expecting a best case scenario will play out.

    Supposed to drive from Columbus to Cincinnati tonight for a dinner engagement. What do the roads look like now in Cincy and on I-71?
