Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

In honor of the snow that the Midwest has been experiencing, a winter favorite.

Caller: The roads are all white.
Me: Yes, it is snowing outside.
Caller: But I can't see the lines.
Me: Yes, that is because it is snowing outside.
Caller: Well what are you going to do about it?
Me: Well at this point, nothing can be done. I would advise not driving if you cannot see the lines and are concerned about the snow on the road.

If I recall correctly, this caller hung up on me.

I'd have hung up on the caller after the "ican't see the white lines" bit. But I'm old and cranky.

How about the callers that ask what the roads are like from here to ***(5 or 6 counties over). I hardly know what the roads are like in my own county....being that I am stuck inside.
One night I had an officer ask me for a road and weather report. It was 3am and I had been at my desk for 10 hours. I keyed up the mic and replied, "It's warm and dry in here" there was silence on the other end. I knew the officer had a good sence of humor and we laughed about it.
