Get a Grip

OMG, the hand-ringing makes me think it is the final coming.   My thought?  The east is picking up a nasty storm that may close schools for a day or two.  People will be inconvenienced for a day or three.   It is winter folks.  Duh!

Our local new radio can’t talk about it enough.  You’d think a new ice age had happened.  I think is is really local glee.  You’d think this thing will bury the Statue of Liberty to be found sometime in the future by big, talking monkeys.

It is “snowy” around these parts quite often.  Last year was a bear. Snowed like crazy.  Had a new term come to the fore.  Polar Vortex.  It followed two years of light snow and temps.  The talk up to then was about not enough moisture and the wailing was about DROUGHT.   Knock on wood! My winter so far isn’t bad. That could change next week.

The NY mayor and Governor are loving this storm.  It is getting all the political corruption off the front pages for a while.  The weatherman will explain it if they miss with science we don’t understand but at least they got the warning out.  Boy! Did they get the warning out.   If they miss it bad, I am sure they’ll blame global warming.

In the next day or two, they will announce the lives lost.  Unfortunate, for sure.  But, it will be very few and will be ameliorated by the equipment and technology of today.  Your great grandparents survived similar or you wouldn’t be here.   That picture at the top of a telephone pole is from 1966.

de Blasio, get a life.  Cuomo, get a life.   Idiot!

Nothing to really see here folks.  It is just winter.  Move along now.  Switch from the news and turn on the easy listening station.  If you are in it, grab the afghan and a book; prop your feet up and watch for the plows to pass.  Tomorrow’s new will show kids out making snowmen and snow forts. NO SCHOOL!!! Kids are smarter than politicians, newsmen, and weather-girls.  Mothers are smarter — they got the kids outside for an hour or two of peace.

    Glad I don’t live where there is frequent snow, polar vortex or not.

    My thoughts exactly. Snow and cold in winter in the northwest. Dog bites man. Move along.

    I agree politicians love anything that they can use to change the subject. I saw it first hand back in 1973 – 1977 while I was do due with WHCA.

    Just checking in to make sure you haven’t frozen to death (well, not literally, but you know what I mean).
