Snow Devils

You may have noticed I have been scarce around these parts lately. While that is assuredly a good thing, I am back to regular posting and commenting after an absurdly busy weekend.

On Friday, we took the kids to the New Jersey Devils game in Newark, NJ. I wanted to leave early because rush hour traffic near NYC is uglier than Rebel Wilson.

I got home from work, got changed and out we went… into the snowstorm. Eastern PA and NJ were hit with a snowstorm which lasted until 10pm. Thee totals weren’t huge, but for some reason, people who live in snow corridors never know how to drive in it. The 90-minute trek took us three hours, mostly because humanity needs to die a violent, pus-filled death.

Snowmageddon 2017 is upon us, and as if the case every March, Mother F**ker Nature is hitting the east coast with a would-be blizzard. And, since this city if chock full of special little snowflakes, everyone is losing their minds.

As I write this – Monday, 6pm – the city and state have already declared snow emergencies, and not one flake has fallen. Well, a flake of snow. Plenty of dandruff has fallen from the heads of my coworkers, but that’s a different story. The schools have not been ordered closed yet, but I certainly expect it.

Pfft, in my day I walked to school in blizzards… uphill both ways!

As for me, I need to be in work tonight, so I’ll be trudging through the global warming while the kids get stuck shoveling. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
