    are flame throwers legal up there? sometimes when im lazy and theres a tons of snow on the porch, i'll get some pots and pans fill them with hot water from the tub or boil it on the stove then throw it out the front door.

    if i ever build my own house or lived up north where there was a ton of snow all the time, i'd run a hose or pipes threw the concrete and to a water heater with a little water pump.

    sometimes i just drive the car up and down the driveway and powerbrake the snow away. my neigbors love that.

    back in the day when i was a trouble maker... we use to get the brick molding tool for snow. and you could go up to someones house in the middle of the knight and build walls of snow on the front door and back door and trap them in. sometimes we would build snow men next to the street like ten of them in a row except one would be built ontop of a fire-hydrent. so then some one would come along with there car and start plowing them and whammo!

    I am a scared mother. I have a son stranded on a subway train outside Howard Beach station. I have been calling for over an hour to the subway police dept. to find out what rescue efforts are being made. At 3:10 they told me a train was being sent to push the disabled train. I want everyone aware of the plight of this trainload of people. They need to be transported to somewhere with heat. There has been no heat on the train. It has been stranded since midnight. Before that an MTA bus took them there from the airport around 10 PM. These people have been without heat since then. Help!

    The resources for help in this space are limited to snarky snappy tripe.
    However, It may be helpful to call your son back and have him lead passengers in an effort to huddle together like penguins.
    This should keep them a little warmer.
    Otherwise with patience everything will be fine.

    In Buffalo it may take 26 hours, but we dig out and drive once the bans lift. It's like a circus up here when it's really bad. When they predicted this storm was going to slam the East Coast, sadly, I knew what they were in for. On the bright side it'll pass.

    I would just like to comment about drivers in Virginia Beach, VA. I don't understand the "state of emergency" mentality when it snows a half an inch. The people that are so scared to drive in the snow actually cause most the accidents. Just an observation, I understand it never snows here but going two miles an hour just throws a wrench in the whole commuting process
