Cliff, <BR> <BR>I live pretty close to Arlington. What is the name of your retaurant?

depoint50ae 02-12-2010 9:30 AM

Snow is completely worthless unless it is on a mountain and I am snowboarding. <BR> <BR>I have to fly through DFW today and I hope I am not screwed!

flackpack 02-12-2010 9:52 AM

111 years of weather records were shattered at DFW Airport. PRevious records were 7.4 inches for 24 hours of snow. Yesterday - 11.8 inches! <BR> <BR>[IMG]<a href="http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10002.jpg" target="_blank">http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10002.jpg</a>[/IMG] <BR> <BR>[IMG]<a href="http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10020.jpg" target="_blank">http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10020.jpg</a>[/IMG] <BR> <BR>[IMG]<a href="http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10049.jpg" target="_blank">http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10049.jpg</a>[/IMG] <BR> <BR>[IMG]<a href="http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10059.jpg" target="_blank">http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo183/moth-94987/Snowmageddon2-11-10059.jpg</a>[/IMG]

How crazy is that?

kentharmon 02-12-2010 10:25 AM

Congrats guys! Snows a blast when you never have it. You can come take some of ours whenever you want up here in UT. Im sick of it. haha!

tings00 02-12-2010 10:42 AM

I am enjoying this years winter in UTAH (salt lake county). Lots of snow in the mountains, very little in valleys. Havent had to clear the walk in at least a month now.

kentharmon 02-12-2010 10:47 AM

Im up here in Logan, We still have a foot and some on the ground. I would love what you SLC guys have right now

downfortheride 02-12-2010 11:08 AM

Tings ~~ Always liked your profile pic with what looks like a huge HS Backroll. All the snow is gone in my yard and I love it. <BR>Kent ~~ You can keep your snow just send some of the melt out way... <BR> <BR>CONGRATS TX!

02-12-2010 11:20 AM

OK... Stanfield - tell me about your fence - are your cross members metal too or is that just an optical illusion? <BR> <BR>I have metal poles but always thought - why not make the whole skeleton out of steel.

bac 02-12-2010 11:54 AM

I can't believe how much Dallas got! We got a little this morning on the north side of Houston but nothing even close to that. <BR> <BR>It was snowing in Baton Rouge earlier this morning when I was watching the news.

tings00 02-12-2010 12:12 PM

Thanks Josh. It is actually an out of control raley attempt that sent the board over my head. The picture turned out great though. Everyone thinks it is a shop job, but it is the real thing.

stanfield 02-12-2010 1:05 PM

Cross members are wood, I think its just the snow on top of them that is making them look funny.

02-12-2010 1:19 PM

I would like to thank Dallas for sending their snow to Alabama! Jib sesh on campus later <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

just now got power back at the restaurant. Headed that way now to toss A BUNCH of food out and start over <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

innov8 02-13-2010 1:57 PM

Sorry to hear that Cliff, do you have any kind of insurance to help with your losses or can you get some help from the Power company?

ord27 02-13-2010 8:13 PM

thanks Jeff. I do have insurance that will cover the cost of lost sales. But, they are arguing that it was an act of God, which is not covered. <BR>My meat and produce guys are working with me to cover a lot of the loses..... <BR> <BR>we served over 600 people tonight from 5 to 9. it was nice to see my staff make some good money! <BR> <BR>sorry for the hi jack Big D <BR> <BR>all things considered, it was nice playing in the snow with my kids!

stroh 02-16-2010 8:17 AM

Wow Cliff. What isn't "an act of god"? I hope you come out ok.
