You'll find that many midwesterners (myself included) look forward to El Nino winters because they're usually so mild. Here in Chicago, we missed most of the big snow. We got maybe 2 in. over the weekend.SkeLeton said:are you sure it's El Niño that's influencing the mild weather there?
Here at least whenever El Niño is around it doesn't rain.. IT POURS! Lots of floods and things like that...
Agreed! We also appreciate days like today when the file server crashes, the mail server crashes, the T-1 line stays connected! and both IS guys are out of the office Cyburbia time!pete-rock said:

El Nino winters here tend to be one week of normally cold and snowy weather followed by one week of abnormally warm weather, and then back to the cold.
What you need are wide rights-of-way with terraces, generous building setbacks, and parking lots between commercial buildings and the street. Then you would have plenty of room for all that snow. Aren't the suburbs great?PlannerGirl said:but whats worse they are using huge front end loaders here to move the snow, the plows cant move it anymore there is no where to PUT it.
Move back to Florida! Trail Nazis are in limited supply here.... you should not have left!
Yeah... no doubt! They don't plow Edmonton side streets, and we've had a few dumps of snow (but not as big as in DC). A guy is suing the City now because the P.O.S. car he was driving dropped it's muffler after hitting some ice ruts in his streets at a high velocity. It's sad because everyone is complaining about how bad the streets are, but then nobody moves their vehicles out of the street so the plows can actually work... dumbasses!PlannerGirl said:hrumph Id be happy just to see a plow down my street!
You can take my old job. The position is still vacant, and the CM is looking for a planner with lots of Florida experience. Dealing with the DCA, you know. Friendly people, a huge variety of work, and the WOT literally a few steps past your door.Trail Nazi said:I am trying to get back.
