I work for a company that has a vdot contract for snow removal in Fairfax County (merrifield) to be exact, ive been doing it for 9 years now and it amazes me the amount of complaints from citizens whether it’s a large storm or small. If most truly understood the amount of time and hard work that goes into trying to keep roads clear, not one person would say a word. Not to mention the folks who just can’t seem to stay off the roads during snow.....let’s be honest, with the amount of closings yesterday 95% of the traffic had no reason to be out lol. Rant over !!!

Big fan of the trade!

Same here.  Nice speed and defense to help on the 4th line and PK.  And didn't give up anything of value.  Big improvement over DSP and Jaskin.  Hopefully, DSP can get his ass in shape over the next month-plus, and come back in time to enter his Playoff Beast Mode.

Even though Smith-Pelly isn't having a great year, I'm happy he's staying with the organization. Who knows, but maybe he will step up again in the playoffs.

Yup, best of both worlds.  Still can use him down the road if he can get his stuff together.  He was huge in the playoffs last year.

@EastCoast NPZ thanks for letting me have a little fun with you. I just found out a few hours ago that the mom of one of my best friends has a few days to live. Cancer. I’m taking it pretty hard. 

So sorry to hear that :(

Thanks guys. When my mom called tonight I didn’t tell her what happened but I couldn’t help but think how I’d react if I heard that kind of news about one of my parents. You just have to cherish the time that you have. You never know when it’s up.

Sorry to hear that.  A hard thing to go through.  I lost both my parents the same way.  Praying for you and your friend.

My best friend’s mom passed away yesterday morning from cancer. The end was very rapid. I just had dinner with her (my best friend) and we cried and laughed and sat in silence....on repeat. I miss her mom. Cancer really sucks.

My old reliable( 360,000 mi.) Toyota Tacoma work truck finally broke down and left me stranded for the first time in 19 years . It was a good run while it lasted :scooter:

That’s one heck of a run. As they say, all good things must come to an end.
