You are not licensed to make such determinations. Shame on You!!!

I grew up in Hutchinson KS and know exactly what you are talking about. Now i live in SC and the weather is really boring!

Re: Crazy Weather


Stacker,
Your not looking so buff in those carhartts, what happened to the naked mason?

I sure don't envy you there, we had that look all winter long. I am ready for about 3 months of spring to get some work done.

Stay off the roads, I hear those okie's don't know how to drive in the snow and ice.

Can't shovel much snow with your hands in your pockets.
