Someone sent me this e-mail and I had to put it up on the site... It says so much... kathleen
 
This from the Denver Post: 
 
This text is from a county emergency manager out in the central part of Colorado after todays snowstorm.
 
 Up here, in the Northern Plains, we just recovered from a Historic event -  may I even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" with a historic blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow & winds to 90 MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities & cut power to 10's of thousands. 

FYI: 
 
George Bush didn't come. 
 
FEMA did nothing. 
 
No one howled for the government. 
 
No one blamed the government. 
 
No one even uttered an expletive on TV . 
 
Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton didn't visit. 
 
Our Mayor didn't blame Bush or anyone else. 
 
Our Governor didn't blame Bush or anyone else, either. 
 
CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC didn't visit - or report on this category 5 snowstorm. Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards. 
 
No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House. 
 
No one looted. 
 
Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the government do something. 
 
Nobody expected the government to do anything, either. 
 
No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah , No Chris Mathews & No Geraldo Rivera. 
 
No Sean Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No Hollywood types to be found. 
 
Nope, we just melted the snow for water. 
 
Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars. 
 
The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks & didn't ask for a penny. 
 
Local restaurants made food & the police & fire departments delivered it to the snowbound families. 
 
Families took in the stranded people - total strangers. 
 
We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman lanterns. 
 
We put on extra layers of clothes because up here it's "Work or Die". 
 
We didn't wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that trade
s votes for 'sittin at home' checks. 
 
Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale has never fallen this early, we know it can happen & how to deal with it ourselves. 

"In my many travels, I've noticed that once one gets north of about 48 degrees North Latitude, 90% of the world's social problems evaporate." 
 
It does seem that way, at least to me. 
 
I hope this gets passed on. 
 
Maybe SOME people will get the message. The world does not owe you a living.

Colo. crews clear potential avalanches

DENVER - Crews triggered avalanches Sunday before they could pose a threat to traffic on a mountain highway, a day after a huge snow slide knocked two cars off the road in a high pass and buried them.

Eight people had to be rescued from the cars, which were swept off the main highway to one of the state's largest ski areas Saturday.

Wind whistled through the mountains west of Denver at 100 mph Sunday, producing whiteout conditions and driving wind chills well below zero, as artillery fire was used to set off controlled avalanches above the highway as well as at other mountain passes.

Witnesses said the slide Saturday morning pushed the cars down about 150 to 200 feet into trees off U.S. 40 near 11,307-foot Berthoud Pass, which leads to Winter Park Resort. The first sign of the avalanche was a puff of snow on the left side of the highway, said the driver of one of the buried cars.

"And it was just microseconds later that it hit us," flipping his car over the roadside guard rail, Dave Boon of Fort Collins told KUSA-TV on Sunday.

"We started spinning and came to rest completely upside down buried in the snow," said Boon, who dug his way out of the car and helped his wife out. He said they walked away with minor cuts and bruises.

Boon said the only things sticking out of the snow, which was at least 15 feet deep, were his car's four wheels and suspension. "There was a tree about 20 feet above us, about 10 inches in diameter, that we snapped off. I think it is the only thing that kept us from going down the slope," he said.

Members of Oakwood Road Church in Ames, Iowa, who were on a ski trip were among those swept away by the avalanche. Darren Johnson's vehicle was the only one of the church's four-car caravan hit by the snow, his father, Don, said.

The elder Johnson said his son was treated at a hospital and released, while a passenger in his car, Peter Olsen of Nevada and a sophomore at Iowa State University, was treated for a broken rib. Officials said Olsen was the only one still hospitalized Sunday.
