The man turned out to be former Democrat Senate Majority Leader tom Daschle. He was trying to push his car, and the reporter and crew jumped in to help him out.

Forecasters were predicting between 20-30 inches of snow overnight and today!

Anything over 18” high could absolutely get him stuck.

Very short man.

More than two feet in our yard now, and a tree down. Thank heavens it didn’t hit the house.

A typical lefty. Doing something he should be after missreading practical reality. Then needs others to bail him out.

I hope this clown is ticketed for being out in weather like this with no good reason.

Oh, come on - give him a break. He's from South Dakota so he's seen worse. Although, being a DC guy he probably never went there after he was in the senate except to campaign.

Best thing that happened in 2004 (?) was getting rid of him. Of course, now we have Reid (and you thought no one could be worse than Dashle).

I really don't miss his "I'm so disappointed" lines.

I would let stay out and play in the snow. Maybe he could get lost in a snowdrift and never seen again.

I only referred to his tiny stature.

In 18” of snow he may need to dig a tunnel to go ANYWHERE.

Just wait until the Rats replace Reid with lil Dick Turban or the Schmuckster--upping the ante is their losing hand!

I have plenty of food. I conform to the tribal and cultural practices of Northern Virginia, so when they said it was going to be another blizzard, I went to the grocery store and stocked up. It was a madhouse. Did you see this, yesterday:

Too early for anything but winter, but at least you have your residents from the Katrina storm to keep you guys busy.

Joe Bastardi, weather expert, said this blizzard is like the President’s Day Blizzard of 1979. In 1979 we even had a week of temps ranging from 17 - 21F here on the Texas Gulf Coast. I wonder if it was the same weather formation. I had friends come down from OKC to thaw out and we had a week of freezing cold and ice. But our roads were clear even then. I have never seen icy roads here. And it snowed here, I refer to about 12”, enough to build a snowman.
Jan 1973.
Dec 1989.
Dec 2004
that is all since I lived here.
Mostly we get a tiny snow flurry that you can barely see, and that is even rare.

WE don’t have ANY residents from Katrina here in Lake Jackson Texas. Zero, Zip, Nada. WE had a much worse Hurricane IKE, Clinton toured both places after Ike and Katrina and said Ike in Galveston was a MILLION times worse than Katrina. Downtown on the Strand we had 14 ft flood. Houston had millions or billions in damages from Ike. We just don’t make the news, since they couldn’t find a way to Blame Bush for Ike.

Last freeze date here usually is February 14
Valentine’s day. That is how we remember time to trim the rose bushes.

But we don’t have Katrina residents. We have IKE residents. I had $10K in damages from Ike. Nothing from Katrina or Rita.

Oh really? Thought Katrina people were all through Texas LOWERING crime rates everywhere.

Didn’t realize they weren’t everywhere in your state.

Sorry about the damage you had.
We here have a fear of the damage of a potential 7.0 and up.

No I missed that.

I AM glad to know that the madness extends to other areas and not just our poor neighborhood.

I WILL say that our shelves were well stocked and the run on the stores seems to have died down.

We ARE expecting more frozen precip again next week. But we are old hands at this now: skillfully swooping to gather up pretzels, bread, milk and beer before the first flake falls.

Poor Tom, most South Dakotans would be smart enough not to drive in such conditions without a 4 wheel drive pickup. However, Tom long ago gave up South Dakota values.

Daschle should thank Al Gore for not getting totally stuck in the snow. Image how much deeper the snow would have been if we didn’t have global warming, LOL!

They're probably just glad that he now rarely if ever steps foot in South Dakota at all anymore.
