Thought of the Day – Snowpocalypse II

What is it about DC? I mean it’s bad enough that half the people who claim DC as home live in Virginia or Maryland – but I’ve been trying to ascertain from which constituency the panic about the impending snow emanates.

DC allegedly has a complex about big brother NYC. The current panic about the pending Snowpocalypse Part Deux does no one any favours. Our friends to the north in Charm City and Gotham can deal with the wet white stuff. Has the gentrification of DC turned everyone into softies who cannot deal with an inch of snow? For shame.

Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s the aforementioned suburb dwellers who hype the panic, no, I think it’s the residents of the 202 proper. For shame.

It’s snow. Fenty, even with crappy poll numbers deals with the snow. I promise you, there is no need to panic-even though the lines at the various (Insert Noun Here)Safeways are stoopid. Things will be nice and toasty in (what used to be) your $750k condo.

Stock up on Jameson (which, as you know, you should have on hand at all times) and I promise you’ll be fine in the event of and inch and a half of snow.
