I am told that a big monster Snowmageddon has engulfed the Northeast and turned the whole region into the Ninth Circle of Hell. Schools were closed, roadways shut down, 13,000 flights canceled, buildings collapsed, and ten people are reportedly dead.
This did not occur where I live.
According to the local paper, we got 2-4 inches last night and another 2-4 inches late in the afternoon. Now this is a city located in upstate New York that sees an average of 92.3 inches of snow per winter with daily temperatures in the twenties, sometimes well below. So this recent turn of events is more than a little ironic.
(This continues to amuse me greatly.)
*sigh* Well, I was hoping for my workplace's first snow day since 1991. But on the upside, the washing machine in my building has been broken since at least Saturday (if not before), which necessitated a ten-minute walk this evening to the laundromat. I am very grateful that the trek was feasible and the place was open because I had no socks or underwear left. Except they charge two dollars to use the washing machine and another two for the dryer! I didn't have enough quarters and had to put a five-dollar bill into the coin machine. Now I have an ungodly amount of change.
So, that was me for today. Any other anticlimactic snow stories out there?
