Does the number really matter?

I think I may be #55 but am unsure if I should subtract those that posted multiple times which could put me as low as #50 (or possibly lower). Anyone know exactly what #1 wins?

Oh well, I have to prepare for a Super Bowl win so I'm outa here. Yep, you may be surprised this Sunday.

Snow

Still snowing here in Cleveland. This has been a crazy year so far with snow 22 out of 28 days this month alone. Looks like the motorcycle will have to stay covered for another month...

I am sorry that I don't have an answer for you. I am a snowbird that leaves MA. in Nov. and stay till May. I belive it was gone when I got down here. If I had to guess a larger B.W. Inn or housing.

Frozen in Dallas

Yep, got into a Ice Storm - but did make it to Dallas, TX. Now at my daughter's. I checked the truck, which was parked outside over night, and it looks like a big block of ice. Cannot even begin to scrape the ice because it is solid clear ice and 1/2 inch in some places. Good thing it is sunny today because it is now melting on the sun side. I also have the truck running with the heater on to help melt some. Tomorrow, we leave for Florida.

Superbowl?

My hometown Browns aren't there. Da' Bears aren't there.

Football season is over. mrgreen

Yeah - I'll probably watch it anyway (can't NOT see the commercials but I have no real preference on who wins. As long as it's not the Steeler's. Or the Cards... wink

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

NYC back in the freezer today.

I saw a stop light on red ahead, stepped on the brake and hit a patch of black ice at 10 mpg. My SUV with ABS did a slowwww slide and nudged the bumper of the car ahead of me. No damage to anyone but it sure was very nerve-racking. shock

Gave me a good lesson on how much to trust ABS on black ice. surprised

Digging out here too

We got about 11 inches of the wonderful Global warming fluff today..along with a layer of ice in the middle.

On another note has anyone else bought a Car And Driver magazine lately. There is an add, that for about $30 you can get the POI of Redlight Cameras in the USA>..I have to wonder where he got that file..??

Don't go to Missouri! surprised

The the one with the pedestrian had three things wrong - the car went through a yellow light, and the pedestrian was walking in a don't walk. The car then appeared to KEEP GOING - out of view of the camera... SCARY! sad

And to think these are only a few of the many that happen each day nationwide...

I spent some of the game with my youngest, reading and working on the computer, so may have missed any good ones.

Missouri Cameras

Red Light Cameras….
You either Love them or Dislike them…

Yeah, but for an annual compilation of the ten worst red light violations (hand picked out of how many tickets?) only a very few involved any accident. And of those few, most were mere fender benders.

As far at the assertion that this proved that red light cameras work, it demonstrates the opposite. The camera did not prevent any of these occurrences.

Red light cameras don't cause safety - they cause revenues.

Hello

What a game today!

Great Game!

Great Game! Best one in a while. wink
