Stupid rant...

People in Illinois are whiney bitches. I have never heard people use weather as an excuse more than in the past couple days. Granted...there was a lot of snow and the roads were *keyword being WERE here people* shitty, but now? PLEASE. "The roads still have snow on them, it's still shitty out." It's not even SNOWING...and the roads have been plowed. Yes...there is still snow on them...if you plow all the way down to the pavement sparks fly. You can drive on snow...it's amazing. Where I'm from the plows don't even get to the road we live on for a couple days. If we called into work every time it snowed we'd be fired in an instant. Yesterday/last night...yes...understandable. This morning? Grow the fuck up. You leave early...you get there. That's just how it is.

*grumble* People are fucking morons.

No doubt. Admittedly some places have craptastic snow removal (at times like this I wish I had sprung for 4-wheel drive), but there's no blowing snow, visibility is clear, as long as you slow down to account for the snow (its not even proper ice) there is no problem. Though the big old truck with Texas plates passing me in town felt kinda awkward (I think I was running 25 in a 30 mph zone...)

Sadly I think that happens just about anywhere where it doesn't snow on a regular basis. A few flakes in the air and people freak out. I've heard stories of people from Atlanta stopping work because of snow that was less then an inch because it's so rare down there they're scared to drive in it.
