    I'm going to say now that I won't make it there Saturday. Whereas I'm quite confident in my driving ability and the snow-loving capability of my AWD, I have less than zero confidence in the skill level of anyone I might have to share the road with when the roads are clean and dry, so in the mess we're expecting I'm going to heed the general advice of staying home.

    However, should anyone venture towards Nick's tomorrow morning at around 8.30 they might see a couple of familiar faces, before I head to the other end of the strip mall to load up with a snow survival kit for grown ups

    I'm sorry, did I offend you with my opinion?
    You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    The way things are going there might not be any restaurants except Waffle House open on Sat. morning. I can make that work though if GC is closed - carrying my own cinnamon to add to their waffles....mmmm.

    Directions to Golden Corral

    Grapeshot,
    FYI - Although I cannot make it, I clicked on your "Map," and it shows a Golden Corral in Kentucky, not Virginia. If it is my mistake, remember, I am originally from NJ.

    Appreciate the catch. Don't know why it defaulted to the wrong location, but fixed it.

    Just as a side question, why are you not out shoveling snow?

    Can't shovel what isn't, but I do so enjoy watching others try.

    Truth is, his shovel was again "borrowed" by the Democrats in the General Assembly. With the amount of manure they try to move, they have come to recognize a good instrument when they steal one.

    Fortunately, Grapeshot has access to many other melee instruments that he uses when dealing with the Ds in the GA.

    stay safe.

    Apparently Golden Corral is not open - they no answer the phone.

    Think it is going to be difficult to find a restaurant other than WH to eat today.
