I am about to leave for work and check my phone and see my daughter message me "I'm suck at the end of the driveway and I can't get my car out. Are you able to help me?" I was thinking our driveway and thought, why the hell did you sit stuck in our driveway for 20 minutes before asking for help? Then my phone rings, "Dad, I'm at Jennifer's, can you come help me? We can't get my car out".

When I got there, the dad says something about if he knew Jennifer was getting picked up he would have shoveled and I thought, you don't know that your daughter has early morning track practice Monday and Wednesdays?? I didn't say anything because I think he was just feeling bad that Keiana got stuck.

I was looking over her car to see how bad she was stuck when a neighbor comes over and says something like with the three us we could probably push her out. I couldn't help but kinda laugh as I looked at my truck thinking, you all think I have this truck so I could do manual labor at 6:20 AM on a Monday?

I hooked up the tow strap, tightened it up and walked that tiny little Honda Accord out like it wasn't even there. Pretty fun way to start the day! :D

Good job!
I’m kind of surprised the dad didn’t shovel, reguardless of whether his kid had to get out this morning.
How much snow are you supposed to get tonight? They are saying 4 to 8 inches for us.

Chatted with Keiana a little bit ago and told her I was surprised her friends dad didn't know his kid left every Mon/Wed morning for track practice. Apparently he did know lol. And Keiana said her dad has a truck too and didn't think about pulling her out, just stood there staring at her tires after she said "I'm calling my dad".

I keep hearing we're gonna get between 7-10" but we'll see. They said between 2-4" Sunday and I'm sure it was at least half foot.

Wow....the dad must be a Bears fan.LOL
“Duh! I got a twuck, but dint tink of uzing it ta pull her owt.” LOL!
Is your truck 4 wheel drive?

Anyway, sometimes I get ticked off by the weather man, when they are so far off with their forecast. Then I think of how people 100 years ago had NO idea, NO warnings of what kind of storm that might be headed their way, and my anger goes away. I mean, they might have sunny and warm one day, and get hit with a blizzard the next, with no idea it was coming.
At least we have some kind of knowledge of what’s comin our way.

Yep, four wheel drive. Otherwise, the truck don't move too well in the snow without it.

I don't understand how anything but a 4 wheel drive gets around in Wisconsin in the Winter. The snow/ice/and other hazardous conditions, IMO, would require equipment to match the conditions. I realise that long time residents don't get impressed with a little bad weather, but still caution and good sense should never be overlooked.

I'm pleased that all ended well, but I must ask, what was learned from this case ?

I told her not to drive her little Honda Accord into unplowed driveways. She agreed saying her friend can walk to the road to get into the car! haha

I've been "dad" to Lydia since she was four. Her biological dad was always in/out of prison, sleeping with younger age girls, getting married, divorced, having multiple wives ... all in all, just wasn't ever there for Lydia. We bonded very early on and I had hoped he would wake up and step up, but it never happened. At age 14, she asked to have her last name changed to mine because "your my dad, and tradition says I have your last name". So, we changed her name.

Even thought I have heard this before, this is the best part of the whole thread. I never get tired of it.

About 10 years ago my son was going to meet up with us for dinner for his 21st birthday. He picked up his gf. Before meting us, they were driving around looking at Christmas lights when they ran off the road into a muddy field. They weren't very far into the field but it was soft and wet and we couldn't push him back on to the road so I had to call a tow truck. Pulling the car about 25 feet cost me $75. I wasn't real happy. I always "wondered" why they were looking at the lights in a small rural subdivision that was only a block long instead of driving around town where there are a lot more lights but I didn't push the issue.

KRK (2h) : a truly great man, and great Packer. RIP Coach Starr
Zero2Cool (4h) : Bart Starr has passed away.
wpr (6h) : Happy birthday NSD
Cheesey (8h) : They never made adjustments against the Raptors. When something doesn’t work, change things up. A 15 point lead and you can’t win? Just plain awful.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Raptors played helluva good series. Bucks gotta adjust more. Use pick an roll. Good season, came short.
Nonstopdrivel (17h) : You let your opponent go on a 29-3 run in the third quarter, and you're not going to win many games in any league.
gbguy20 (17h) : welp
Nonstopdrivel (17h) : It's mind boggling that a professional basketball team could be so bad from the two-point range.
gbguy20 (18h) : the tides have turned
Nonstopdrivel (19h) : The only reason they're even in this game is because they're dominating on the boards.
Zero2Cool (19h) : They've tried last several possessions and missed three times.
Nonstopdrivel (19h) : It's obnoxious watching the Bucks refuse to play inside the arc.
gbguy20 (24-May) : the rocks career ascension since the 90s has been amazing
Zero2Cool (24-May) : IT DOESN'T MATTAH!!
Zero2Cool (24-May) : As The Rock would say ...
wpr (24-May) : we 3-4 or 4-3?
Zero2Cool (24-May) : yet, some are gonna ask we 3-4 or 4-3
Zero2Cool (24-May) : 2018 the league average for base personnel on defense fell all the way to 25%
Zero2Cool (24-May) : You wouldn't have wanted me in chat last night.
gbguy20 (24-May) : solid
Nonstopdrivel (24-May) : Anyone going to get their butts in the chat room for this game?
TheKanataThrilla (24-May) : lol
gbguy20 (23-May) : Still no bye week listed Kevin. Don't you know what you are doing? young idiot
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Only thing I can guess is how Falcons used Taylor Gabriel.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : if anything, they like his open field ability and figure if they can get the ball to him in the flat from backfield = win
Zero2Cool (23-May) : More so thinking it is just not leaving any stone unturned.
Cheesey (23-May) : I’m not questioning you Zero, just trying to figure it out. Is Davis that good that they are trying so hard to find a spot where he can play?
Cheesey (23-May) : Why would they try a last ditch effort? I mean, if they have to try THAT hard, is he really worth it?
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Keep in mind the quick little fast guys that the Rams, Falcons used. They might see Trevor in that role.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : More than likely, this is a last ditch effort to find a spot for Trevor.
Cheesey (23-May) : I agree gbguy. He must have a relative in a high position on the Packers!
gbguy20 (22-May) : except ty was actually good (at both positions) where Trevor has never shown a reason to be on the 53. how he has been here for so long escapes me
wpr (22-May) : It's the Montgomery experiment all over again.
gbguy20 (22-May) : Trevor Davis practicing as a RB during OTAs. what the hell
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Folks usually say the series don't start until road team wins
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : There was a stat that indicated that home crowd was most important in basketball of the big 4 sports. Not sure why.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Raptors are simply better team top/down, and two of their main guys are hobbled.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : And didn't learn from past mistakes and lost Game 4.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Bucks should have lost Game 1, got lucky. Dominated Game 2. Screwed up in Game 3.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : I don't think they are gonna make it to the Finals. No effort, no heart last night.
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Don't panic Cheesey, series will go 7 games. NBA needs that to happen.
Cheesey (22-May) : Bucks stunk it up tonight. If they keep this up, they will be WATCHING the championship on TV.
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : Congrats Blues. Stanley Cup bound.
gbguy20 (22-May) : i c u cheesey
Cheesey (21-May) : Yeah....would have been good “JU JU”! LOL!
Zero2Cool (21-May) : Should have taken JuJu Smith-Schuster instead of Josh Jones
Zero2Cool (21-May) : " So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the reps. I think everyone in here is comfortable what Davante is about."
Zero2Cool (21-May) : LaFleur says Davante Adams is present, but he did not practice: "Just precautionary, and ... we do have some young receivers. So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the r
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won another Eastern Conference Championship in '74.
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won it all in 1971.
