Maybe "they" should have a rule about not trucking gasoline during periods of black ice.

Never mind, it's unfettered free market time.

Do you know what a "good buddy" even is?


No, Is that how people used to talk on the radio, or did people start talking like that after Smokey and the Bandit?

Not to be confused with "Ole buddy". As in "the out bound is not on duty for another 2mins, tie and down and i'll send you a ride ole buddy"

Did you ever have a CB, Clavalin? Back in the days it was all the rage and Cy drove a lot, yeah, Cy had a couple of them. Had one stolen, in fact, right out of the parking lot at the Belletuckian dorm. Pipes, I think good buddy was a thing before Smokey debuted.

Back in the early 70's cb was big.

everybody had one.

Songs were sung and TV shows (BJ and the bear, Keep on truckin), and Movies were made.

The truckers used chan 19 nationwide to tell each other directions, where the cops were and where the scales were open.

Everybody had one...(did I say that?)

Pretty soon all youd hear was some kid sayin.."Breaker for a truck", or some lot lizard offerin services over the radio.

Soon started crowding the truckers off with people illegally modifying a 5 watt radio into 500 or more watt behemoth that would turn the sky a reddish orange color

over their house when they keyed up the mic.

Truckers started to get mad and get even with the queers and others who got on the radio just to mess with them.

one song started with tinker bells jingiling and a fag voice saying breaker breaker and takers? C B Savage here...

any way

Not saying you are a good Buddy.

Never have.

I heard a trucker one day who was pretty much done with the cb tell another this story. He heard a guy who was obviously a novice calling and calling for a good buddy and no one would answer him.

the trucker said hey..ya know what a good buddy is?

the novice said I don't know.

trucker said a good buddy goes to town and gets b2 blow jobs and brings one home for you...........

Youre supposed to laff now.......

Never heard a lot lizard. Used to drive a lot between the Capital City and the land of picnic table lovers. A lot. Made for good entertainment, along with my state-of-the-art 8 track tape player. Used to talk to a trucker all the time who drove for Sunbeam Bread, every night, he'd drive and deliver from Washington CH, OH, to Sandusky, OH, and back, had a whole bunch of young ladies he'd talk to in Bucyrus, OH, used to get a kick out of that, but honestly, don't think they were lot lizards.

Remember sitting stationary and talking to someone about 20 miles away, that was a pretty good "carrier". Had a good fellow RR buddy in those days who went by the handle, "Railrider", he had a home CB, he could get out pretty far when the conditions were right. Poor ol' Railrider is one of the old pals we lost just this year.

We need to see some pics/video of Snippy at full speed "on" one of these bikes.

The skies in your pictures indicate a busy day of spray.

But as cold as it is, there ARE indeed colder spots... Yep!

5 of the coldest cities in the world

By Kevin Byrne, AccuWeather staff writer
December 19, 2016, 9:59:53 AM EST


For some cities around the world, the winter season isnt just cold, its ruthless.

With many of the coldest cities on Earth located in far northern latitudes, brutal arctic air is persistent, plunging normal low temperatures into the double digits below zero.

Whether it's the vast Siberian tundra, the Canadian wilderness or far eastern China, residents in these locales routinely face some of the longest and most challenging winter seasons.

Here are five cities that have some of the coldest winters in the world.

Dudinka

Dudinka, Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia

Located above the Arctic Circle, Dudinka is a town along the Yenisei River in Russias Siberian territory. Home to more than 20,000 citizens, Dudinka is one of the northernmost cities in the world and thus faces extreme winter conditions.

An average daily minimum temperature in January is minus 28 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 33 degrees Celsius), while the average high is minus 12 F (minus 24.5 C).

Several years ago, parts of the town literally froze over during a powerful winter storm. Pipes burst causing the streets to flood while temperatures were reportedly minus 40 F (minus 40 C). This resulted in cars becoming encased in several feet of ice and snow.

Harbin, Heilongjiang, China

Located in far northeastern China, Harbin is the capital of Heilongjiang province and is home to over 10 million people. Due to its harsh winter climate, the city is often referred to as the ice city.

Winter weather is a part of the citys DNA as each year it hosts the Hardin International Snow and Ice Festival, one of the largest ice festivals in the world.

Normal low temperatures during January range from minus 8 to minus 12 F (minus 22 to minus 24 C). Temperatures as extreme as minus 44 F (minus 42 C) have been recorded during winter in Harbin.

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

The capital city of the province of Manitoba, Winnipeg is home to more than 715,000 people and is one of the coldest major cities in North America.

Situated in the Canadian Prairies, Winnipeg experiences normal January lows of minus 5 to minus 9 F (minus 20 to minus 22 C).

Throughout its history, the city has experienced some of the most bone-chilling conditions imaginable. Temperatures as low as minus 49 F (minus 45 C) were recorded on Feb, 18, 1966 and minus 54 F (minus 47.8 C) on Dec. 24, 1879.

Yakutsk, Sakha Republic, Russia

The capital of the Sakha Republic of Russia, Yakutsk is home to some of the harshest winter conditions on Earth. Around 282,400 people live in the city, which is just a couple hundred miles from the Arctic Circle.

The most extreme temperatures occur in January with an average ranging from minus 38 to minus 42 F (minus 38 to minus 41 C). The all-time record low recorded is minus 83 F (minus 64 C) in 1891.

In addition, the winter season in Yakutsk can begin much earlier than other cities around the world. For Oct. 1, its average high is only 30 F (minus 1 C).

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada

Founded in 1934, Yellowknife is the capital city of Canadas Northwest Territories, located on the shore of Great Slave Lake and about 320 miles from the Arctic Circle. Home to over 20,000 people, the citys roots are based in the mining industry. During the winter, its northern heritage is on display through the ice roads that still provide transport to the community.

Due to its subarctic climate, normal low temperatures during the month of January can reach minus 26 F (minus 32 C) in Yellowknife. Normal highs can struggle to get past minus 7 F (minus 21 C). The coldest temperature on record for the city is minus 60 F (minus 51 C) on Feb. 1, 1947.

Yellowknife was given the title of coldest Canadian city in 2014.

The city also boasts long and clear winter nights which provide optimal conditions to view the aurora borealis from mid-November to early April.

Just "hanging out" at the beach.

This is looking east at the approximate site of the First Landing of English Settlers (Jamestown Edition) on April 26, 1607.

If they cared, they'd be surprised at just how pristine and well preserved it remains tu this day.
