    I couldn`t agree more with siarad2 I remember 62/3 and we as kids walked to school through heavy snow. Blame Health & Safety Rules for the panic and chaos caused.

    People in the USA & Europe must laugh their socks off at us, a few inches of snow & we're brought to a stop. When did we become such wimps.
