We had about an inch the other day. By noon it was all gone. That's it so far. Been a pretty mild "winter" so far.

Yup, and I'm not going to complain one bit :)

Should be interesting driving through down town Geneva if we get any heavy snowfalls this winter, I've already that running in full time 4wd in the rain isn't a bad idea when driving through down town.

Lift with your legs - not your back. Hey Dr. Cranky, it's 77 and sunny up here. Maybe we should take the scooters out for a ride? Supposed to get cold tonight and into the next couple fo days.

I was going to shovel the drive since it wasn't even an inch deep at the time.............got out to the garage and found that backing the parents van up and getting the snow blower out was going to be less work than just trying to get to the shovels.

Some friends out in Virgil (near Maple Park) and I are planning on racing our R/C's this Sunday in one's back yard and one sent me a text message while I was out clearing the drives (did the neighbor's too while I was at it.)........ He texted; "Hope ur ready for a snow race." :lol:

If you're out that way, Joe, stop by Ethics Auto Body and say hi to LT. His shop is across 64 from the racetrack in Maple Park.

George, the pizza place you describe sounds like Geno's East as I used to go there back in the 60's.

As a former "Chicago native" I've been there several times and used to hang out on Rush street also.

Those were the good old days as it was great living in the city back in the 50's & 60's.

I was always a "north sider" but in my later years I did work with a lot of south siders in my trade. I had cousins that lived on north Honore St.

I loved Riverview!! The whole family used to go once a year. The Bobs is the only roller coaster I've ever been on that I couldn't go hands up. We called it "the devil". Great ride.

Crazyjim, I think George ment Riverview Park on the southside that was part of the Chicago Park district and not Riverview the amusement park which was on the northside by Belmont & Western Aves.

Oh. Well I don't care about the southside park. I meant the Belmont & Western place. Who was the big fat guy that did the advertisement?

I remember Riverview, my parents took me there when I was just a little kid. My high school is right next to where Riverview was... if you were in a room on the south side of the school you could see right into Riverview... it was literally right next door.

BTW... I just got in from shoveling about half a foot of snow. All of you guys east of me... coming your way! :P
