Seems we are all plagued with retarded drivers, retarded grocery shoppers.  And that's being nice too.   Drop of rain, a single snowflake, KERASH!  Instant amnesia!  Forgets how to drive, if they ever even knew!  Drunk drivers.  There are a LOT of people who refuse to own responsibility for their own behavior.   I got no patience for them these days.  Just walk off and find a cop.    :yeow:

My question would have to be.... WTF are they doing on a mountain road in a snowstorm to begin with?? If I'm gonna drive up Pike's Peak, I'm gonna do it in SUMMER!  :tearlaugh:

Sometimes you're on the road and the storms just seem to come up suddenly 'out of nowhere'. Or if they're on a long haul, they don't have much choice because the roadside towns' hotels and inns fill up real fast. I think the State Highway Dept. actually close Pike's Peak off in the winter. I know they close Trail Ridge road, which is one of the if not the highest roads in the US. You will still see snow up there in July sometimes but not on the road because the plows clean it before they open it.

Then there's good old two-lane Wolf Creek pass with it's 16 foot tall snow markers along the side of the road along the chasm side - and it IS a DEEP one! Probably at least 700-800 feet down or perhaps more. It's just a real long way down there! And good old 'Deadman's Curve at the beginning of the down-grade into southwestern Colorado Durango/Alamosa area. That's like hairpin curve to end all hairpin curves. They have a rather hefty wall there with a bronze plaque on it that says "Dead Man's Curve' and lists at least one person who went off it. That pass even scares me driving on it in the summer. And I love going around hairpin curves - I know how to do it smooth as silk. Lots of 'Beware of Falling Rocks' signs along the way - so if one side doesn't get you the other one will.

Yea verily you can get an AMEN from me at least, NPA!

Oh, it's the Fire cycle of years, eh? That's my cycle I was born in.........the Fire Pig :tearlaugh: Barbeque, anyone? Well, if I manage to make it to another birthday in one piece......oh wait, I can't eat pork any more because of the crap they inject into it that basically cripples the pigs in their stalls. 

:sadder: :dispute:

That's about all I eat any more is chicken and turkey, so it's not terribly special for the birthday I fear. But it IS good stuff! I wouldn't turn it down.
