    I know it's tempting, but...don't do it.

    The one on South Lamar is my favorite but the North Lamar one is the second biggest anywhere and quite a fun store to get lost in.

    Yeah, I'm sure there are, I have been avoiding them out of fear of being sucked back into collecting them. Back in mid 90's I was subscribing to about 30-40 comics a month, until I quit cold turkey in 96. Have only bought about 3 comics since then (first 3 issues of the Gunslinger). I'll try Half-price books first (I get tempted by their comics too!)

    (Starting to wonder where I've been).
    Yep, "N." was released by Marvel
    Oh, and that wasnt released as a book, but do you know the graphic version of "The little green god of agony?"
    > https://www.stephenking.com/promo/li..._god_of_agony/

    I have a french book titled "the adaptations of Stephen King" in which there is a part dedicated to the comics / graphic novel treatment of King's stories. As well as the illustrations
    My french page about it : https://club-stephenking.fr/les-adap...livre-sur-king
    The book is available on amazon ( https://www.amazon.com/adaptations-S...dp/2953848320/ ) and the ebook version is available for a small $3.5

    Thanks Bill, Page and Josh for the good advice. I will try the one on South Lamar first as that is only a couple of miles from work, so could go there on my lunch break. Otherwise will hit the one in South Park Meadows since that is on the way home from work everyday. My friends son seemed to favor the one in San Marcos which isn't too far south of my home.

    The one in South Park Meadows didn't have much when I lived down there but it was still a fairly new store at that point. Hopefully it's grown. San Marcos is a GREAT store. I used to spend WAY too much time there when I was going to college.

    Anyone have a snowblower they could ship me?

    We woke this morning to 14.5 inches of snow (other areas of Virginia even higher).

    This storm is now listed as the second highest amount ever in December for Virginia. Keep in mind, 2 inches shuts Virginia down, so you can imagine what this is like. Snow Armageddon....hahahahahaha

    I owe a couple people some boxes of goodies, but our local Post isn't open. Sorry about that, but it's out of my hands. Will try again tomorrow.

    Now, back to trying to shovel through a 5 foot wall of snow the plows left at the end of my driveway.

    Yea Ralph. When the plow makes it worse, it really sucks. I hope you can get out of your house. That's a good deal of snow. That's even pushing a lot for up here, although we have had
    more than that at times. Good luck.

    A few years ago we had snow for 36 hours straight. We are no Stranger to snow BUT this was coming down at a rate of 1.5 to 2.5 inches an hour. When it was over we had about 50 inches. About 4 feet of snow AND drifts?? Well donít get me started. 3 years ago we got 36 inches in a day and couldnít get out of our house for 3 days!!!

    Man, that's a lot of snow Kris. I think the most we ever had maybe was close to 3 feet. But it hasn't snowed a lot in a while. At least not yet. We still have Jan, Feb and maybe Mar. But 50in is a lot.

    Yeah, I'd rather get the other, not the snow job.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    It wouldn't hurt my feelings to never see it here again. Although, having an outside job, I'd much rather work in the snow than freezing rain or sleet.
