    The only snow removal equipment I had then was a shovel. It only worked well enough to barely get my truck off the road. I didn't see my car for three weeks!

    I was just about to respond to your earlier post. I can't believe you use Bag Balm on your lips - I use it on my heels, but I don't think I could put it on my lips. Then this message just wierded me out...I didn't know you marines were that tough [img]/forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

    Shania Twain boosted the production of that stuff in a BIG way when people found out that she uses it on her face.

    Funny, I always thought it was made in Canada.

    Boonie,

    What in the heck is a jar head doing on a boat that sinks?

    I smell a story... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    But back to the thread... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I was living in Louisville, KY in 77/78 and I remember the
    storm. We had a heat pump. We where never warm. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    We had a couple of good snow storms during those two
    winters and one dropped 19 inches of snow. Which is a lot
    but the last two/three years in NC we have had two storms
    that put down 24 inches... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    The KY storm put us out of school for a good week and then
    the teachers went on strike. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] Having time off for the
    snow was one thing but the strike killed us. We had a very
    short summer to make up for the lost time and we had an
    extra hour of school a day. Ten minutes where added to each
    class so the hour did not help one get more edicated but it
    sure made one really tired at the end of the day...

    How we avoided frost bite I'll never know. We where out in
    that cold having snow ball fights. Running down in the woods
    on the frozen creek. Everyone fell through the ice and would
    get wet up to our knees. Get home and the jeans would be
    frozen like boards. Legs all red. Jump in the shower and it
    would hurt. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Go out the next day and do it all over again!

    I can't quite believe anyone would use bag balm on their lips either! It's great on hands, but it's gotta taste horrible. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    The drug stores around here have sold Bag Balm for as long as I can remember, but recently they started putting it behind the counter???? Maybe because it's labeled for use on animals? Just seems wierd to me. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    Well, submariners are generally not considered normal. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    You know, I still use the stuff on my lips. In fact, I find the taste oddly arousing! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    An employment transfer put us in Southern California in '74, so we generally missed those severe winters. Being something of a snow nut (or just a regular, garden variety nut, depending on who you ask), So Cal was nice, but I missed the snow.
