Or do you think I saw this:
I'll give you two guesses, and the first one doesn't count.
The first picture is the view after opening my door in December 2008, during one of the biggest snowstorms we've ever had during my lifetime (we don't get a lot of snow here. Rain? Yes. Snow? No.). The second picture is my front stoop Thursday morning. AFTER they closed all the area schools. What you see is less than one inch, and that's at my house in the East Valley. Closer in, it looked like this:
Wait, no. Sorry. That's 2008 again.
Yeah. Fear the frigidity.
I went into work, of course, thinking it would keep snowing (as the fuckers promised me it would) and I could leave early once it started to look like a justifiable reason to be home in my jammies. And then the shit all melted. It snowed several times during the day, with nothing to show at the end, and I got home and what do you think I found here? The 1/2" still on the ground, and the newspeople still flipping out about it. Assholes.
It just seems even more ridiculous (because they do this every year) after the epic blizzards that stormed the rest of the country this winter. I mean, fucking Texas was snowed out. And they're still gonna make a big deal about 1/2" of sticking snow? I'm done with you, meterologists of the PNW. You're dead to me.
