Snow/Ice Stuck in Alabama

8 posts in this topic

Tried to get from Chattanooga to New Orleans yesterday...made it to Exit 76 on I-59.  Got hotel (I was lucky).  Not leaving today because Interstate is still iced and closed in many places between here and home...

You guys that live in the "Snow Belt" are probably laughing at us "Southerners", but to be honest, I can drive in the snow but the ice is something else.....Crazy Rednecks don't slow down and endanger themselves and others.  They think those 4 WD trucks can go anyplace....many of them ended up in ditches and median.....

Took 7.5 hours to get here, regular trip usually takes 7 hours the whole way.  A little less than half way before I decided to stop before it got dark... :bugout:

Oh very much so. Say hello to Atlanta with only 0.3" of snow on the ground. Pansy southerners. I drive fine to work with upwards of 4-5 inches before.

4 WD is all and good for snow, but when you get ice you are screwed. Physics still wins out on that one, got to love friction.

Snow is one thing, ice is entirely different. I don't play around with ice. The thing with 4WD is that people don't realize that it does NOT help you stop, or even steer for that matter.

Seems like Mother Nature is making up for the mild winters we had recently. Stay safe all.

Talk to me about, "wusses" if it ever gets up to 100* in Wisconsin.  You guys all retreat into the a/c when it gets above 75.

In their defense, the southern states are not equipped to handle snow and ice.  How many sanders and plows do they have in Alabama?  My city probably has more.

    • cracking or scratched face
      The faces are unsupported and sit on a hollow cavity inside the club. It's unsupported to allow it to flex more for ballspeed. Unfortunately, that can cause it to break more easily. Basically, it's like punching through drywall: it's easier to break through when the wall behind it is empty than if it's attached to a brick wall.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Of course he is entitled to his opinion.  But when he lards it with attempts at bolstering his opinion with stuff like "I saw Jack play", and "He was nice at a clinic" and challenges people as to whether other people saw Jack play like he did and just where did you see him play . . .  well then scorn comes into play.  Especially when his claim is not just that Jack is better, but he claims that Jack is " by far the best".   By far?  Really?  There is an assessment I hadn't previously seen in the thread even from the most avid Jack supporters.  One can argue for Jack rationally, but claiming he is 'by far" the best, and adducing as evidence the facts that a) he saw him play, b) Tiger is not winning now, c) Jack was nice the time he saw him at the driving range?  Is that remotely a rational argument?  Not to mention this little piece of . . I don't know what:  " What is Tiger doing now? He sure is not winning. His historical achievements are nice but they don't win tournaments."  means or has anything to do with anything.  I mean, replace the word Tiger with Jack and it is equally true and equally besides the point.  So your criticism is completely off base.  Reasonable people certainly can disagree.  There is a difference between scorn at someone's opinion, and scorn at the reasoning process they claim as the basis of their opinion.  He gets his opinion for free. But his facts and reasoning, should he choose to share them as he did, are subject to logical analysis and challenge.  You are free to like chocolate, but if you give your reason for liking it as "my favorite hat is brown and so is chocolate" then people will look askance at you.  As they should.

      I would expect them to just replace the one club. That's what warranty is for, defects in material or workmanship and if they determine there is a defect in that club I would expect it will be replaced.

      Sorry it's the xr standard irons from last year. What would cause the crack?
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Hey guys and gals! I need some help reducing or preferably eliminating my blowup holes. Im currently playing some of the best golf of my life but the blowup holes are killing any chances of shooting a good number. I aim for bogey golf and usually see 3-5 pars per round with the occasional birdie. I consider bogies good holes and average 6-8 of those a round. But the doubles and triples are destroying my card. Can anybody help me with this?
