1. Your comment about sander trucks is false, probably due to your lack of knowledge. 2. Since you wouldn't notice the ice storm, get your ass out there and get yourself gone from Plano. We will appreciate that, considering your disrespect for not only Texas, but Plano as well. You expect to be catered to everywhere you go? You deserve no respect.

Looks like one of those mall-centric places where people get stuck in traffic jams going to work, shopping at the mall, then going home to their tract home to "exist" for the remainder of the day. This cycle repeats day in and day out, day in and day out, day in and day out...

Obviously, you also have no idea of the living conditions here. By "looks like", do you mean you live here? If so, you are invited to leave as well.

That little bit of ice getting you down, John? It's sort of cute the way everybody south of about Kansas gets all in a flutter about a bit of ice, as though winter were a novelty. In the Northeast they just plough, salt, and sand the daylights out of it and life goes on pretty well normally. Atlanta has one of the busiest airports in the world, and they get shut down probably 2 days per year for what (by NE USA standards) is a tiny bit of snow. The cost of that is *astronomical*. It seems as though nobody has done the math as to what losing a day or two's worth of everybody's work per year actually costs. A few thousand sander trucks would be *cheap* by comparison. (Maybe they're worried that their drivers wouldn't get enough practice, so they'd be a bit of a menace to navigation.) Hope you feel better soon!

The place is a wasteland and tenement disguised as some kind of progress, it's thoroughly revolting.

Yes, but that's normal down here where we don't normally have worry about salt degrading our cars and other things. Winter is not a novelty, but ice and snow are, thank goodness.

Yes, and even though you have all that equipment, salt, and personnel to deal with it, you still have the penalty of the *astronomical* costs.

I think maybe they have. That's why, given our climate, it is not prudent to provide salt, sand and plows just for your unwelcome visit.

I feel file. It is you who is bitchy about our weather. Go home soon.

Looks like the Russians know how to make winter driving an adventure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PwpP9D4zxU

Well that's just it: anything at all out of the unbelievably monotonous ordinary and everyone goes crazy...
