As March commences, we are hit with another 2 hour delay tomorrow.Oh, hell no, (the Bostonians are shouting a string of much more creative expletives…) you didn’t! But of course you did! The Philadelphia suburbs and apparently all of Washington D.C. would like to graciously thank you for today’s ice storm, which put the lingering 3 inches of dirty grey snow on our yards in ice lock down. On March 1st. Super. Can we cry Uncle??
I guess today begins the unofficial miserable ending to the coldest winter in the northeast in 36 years. Thanks, by the way, not sure how super helpful record breaking cold is, but it sure kept all of our kids housebound for the last 2 months. Begins the ending, you say? Yes, if we are to look at your track record we can only deduce that this is the dawn of an approximate month-long Springtease. (By the way, you’ve had the Floridians in a frenzy. You gave it to them good- making them endure days in the 40’s. I hope you were checking your social media to see how upset they were. Next year, they’d like some snow. Just for fun.) This has been a doozy. Clearly, the pharmacuetical lobbyists have gotten to you (too!). Was this the year of record numbers of northeasterners crushing up any seratonin producing pharmaceutical in sight???
At this point, the weather channel has run out of edgy, masculine storm names. They’ve been reduced to envoking ancient battle states. We are onto Sparta, which probably has dads invoking Gerard Butler’s Leonidas shouting to the children, “Spartans, ready your snowshovels!”
Here’s the deal. Rita’s Water Ice opened today. We’d like to start enjoying the real stuff without having the option of chipping it off of our gutters. This is tremendously torturous … throw us a bone!
Love ‘N Stuff,
The Entire East Coast
